    Refunder wants payment before confirmation from best buy

    Failed my homies best buy and paid for a service to fix it, not the first time. I've never been asked to pay before reship/refund though. Ever since this refunder sent me a live chat screenshot of the refund he's been messaging me repeatedly asking for payment upfront, over a grand in bitcoin. I'm really hoping bestbuy sends a confirmation email or something soon cause now he's threatening to cancel the refund if I don't send payment now cause he needs to pay his partner. I just don't feel comfortable sending that much in bitcoin before the refund has been completed. Before the refund we agreed to pay 'after', I took this to mean after confirmation/refund from best buy but apparently he took this to mean after he talked to best buy. Just don't want this to get nasty so I'm asking for unbiased advice here on what I should do, he's really pressuring me to send payment now so he can pay his partner. This guy has a lot of rep on mpgh I doubt he's a scammer

    I advise that you use a middleman. Any of us will do. Agree to send over the money to middleman and when its completed middleman will release the money or if any problems arise you/he can make a report. @ricky

    lol at this refunder. Don't send any payment yet, until you confirm the refund!

    Just hang in there for a while, tell him that you don't have the money to pay him right now.
    Middle-man isn't a very good idea either, because in case the refund fails, you'll end up losing your money either way.
    1000 bucks is no joke.

    How in the hell he will lose money by sending it to a Middle Man?

    Personally I like to ask customers money beforehand if they seem sketchy/untrustable, but usally I do it after e-mail or MY confirmation. It really depends on the store and other stuff, but I don't see a reason for a refunder to fuck you over when he can make the money within very less timeframe with his service.

    Anyways, use an official Middleman and you will be good.

    Don't pay anything upfront, Honestly screenshots dont mean shit. many people can just "inspect element" and change up the page to look like the refund went thru. Be careful

    Since the OP has already purchased the item(s), they'll lose all the money if the refunder does something crazy. Plus, there might be legal consequences on top of that. I guess that's a big risk.

    A Middleman solves the risk factor. You have to pick the right one though. @Wizard This should not be a big risk if you pick an well reputed middleman.

    well that is a risk you have to take when refunding
    cant have something for almost free without any risk

    Well big lessons learned here. Absolutely do not pay until you receive the refund unless you really trust your refunder. Just had a best buy refund touch my account for a few hours and then get immediately recharged. I honestly would have payed the $1300 in bitcoin to azzyg on confirmation if coinbase didn't put a 3 day hold on it, instead I sent paypal to some exchanger he was using and now there's lots of drama

    Come watch him get demolished by the mods in scammers grave though this guy is so freaking sus. he thinks he still deserves to get paid cause he did his part attempting the refund and I was 'technically' refunded. From now on I'm always gonna use a middleman
