    I also have been scammed by this a**hole!!! incredible, try to get my money back!!! don’t believe any of that!!!

  • Darja Carl  On March 23, 2010 at 3:42 am

    if somebody else is victim of this scam, please respond on this threat, because chances are higher to get the money back from paypal, if more people have been scammed…!

  • Scammed  On March 23, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    Darja, I think I have been scammed on this too, there has been no reply for over a week after payment confirmation, how have you approached paypal on this?

  • Josh  On March 23, 2010 at 8:32 pm

    I have also been scammed out of the paris apartment. Anyone know how to contact Paypal in an attempt to get money back and what the process is?

  • Darja Carl  On March 25, 2010 at 9:43 am

    Well, I opened I conflict with Paypal regarding this, claiming Scam. Then you have to wait for a week or so and try to contact the guy, to get your money back. If this is not happening (obviously not, because its a scammer) after a week you can ask for buyers’s security (or something like that). The most important thing is, that you include this link in your description and save every email and everything from Gayle to proof the scam. Its really imprtant that you do that as soon as possible, since the lady from Paypal on the phone told me, if you get your money back depends on, if you can proof its a scam, so if more people come up with the same claim. So please open a conflict in your Paypal account regarding this transaction to Gayle. I also wrote to my creditcard bank to pull the transaction back, to make sure I get my money back. Incredible, how much work this stupid **** is making us and not to think of the money!

    Good luck, keep me posted, if something works out, I’ll do as well!

    I too have just realized I was [a victim of] of this scam. Here is the following information/steps I have taken as of yesterday:

    -Same contract/Paris address as above with same email used to deposit to Paypal
    -The name that was used for my rental was Beverley Gloskey- not Gayle Bush
    -Have contacted PayPal and they have advised I would receive my payment back within 10 days if the fraudulent paypal account holder does not respond to their emails

    Please let me know if you have any luck with PayPal in returning your money.

    Thanks

    I was also scammed of $1000 by Beverly Glosky, for an apartment in Amsterdam.
    I did this as a personal transaction and PayPal totally rejected my claims for compensation. The paypal address which was used for the payment was:
    latimerhill@frontier.net

    Please let me know if anyone manages to get anything back from paypal. Also what was the address used for scamming? If the same paypal account was used, paypal should have additional responsibility as they have been notified copiously by me that this was a scam.
    The date I was scammed was 2/26/2010.

    Watch out for Brown Smith, too. Brown.Smith@gmail.com. Same contract, different name. THANK YOU for this site! I learned about him before I sent any $$$.

    Note that his email address is not yet verified at Pay Pal. He appears to be just getting started under this new alias.
