Good morning,

I canceled the transaction due to a few reasons. First, emails with Pokerjake never included his real name or phone number. This bothered me a bit, potential scam maybe? After asking him if he wanted other info on the pinball, he said no, that he trusted me. This marks good faith/character on his part, but made me a bit concerned since I would want the most info on anything I am buying that is used, especially if it costs a lot of money.

Per escrow.com, the funds should have been secured via paypal in 24 hours from Wednesday. After contacting them Friday on the phone as well as Sunday via their web chat , they said they were still trying to verify the funds/person sending the money. This made me nervous. Since the money was never secured, either party was able to cancel the transaction per Escrow.com at that time so I cancelled. Plus I was concerned about shipping the game from the get go, my fault, I should have never agreed to do that. Just caused a lot of stress of the unknown such as will I be paid, if the game is rejected, will I receive it back, etc. Talking with escrow.com, they said if the game was rejected, and not returned within 10 days, it could go mediation/court and cost each party $4K, again, this made me nervous since I would never be able to afford that.

Per escrow.com, his funds will be returned since no transaction had taken place because the funds were never secured. Shipping charges cannot be enforced because nothing was ever shipped. When I talked to the shipping company, I even told them a potential pickup date was depending on funds being secured so it may be cancelled all together based on that.

Quoted from pezpunk:

If you were that nervous, you shouldn't have agreed to the deal, let alone allow it to get to the point of escrow and shipping deposits. The point where you could back out honorably had long since passed in my opinion.

Agreed. I kept trying reassure myself that this transaction will go smoothly, but just wasn't comfortable. As you stated, I should have just told the person no shipping, etc, just local pickup.

I'd be happy to send you $65 cash in the mail for the fees. I already told you I'd help with fees if there were any yesterday on the phone. Just send me a text of your address and I'll get it in the mail tonight. I wish you the best in finding a pin you really like.
