Almost Scammed by Dustin Diamonds ‘Screech’
I was almost scammed by Dustin Diamonds, also known as Screech from Saved By The Bell. Do you remember a few months ago news articles on him selling t-shirts (getDshirts.com) in order to save his house and blah blah blah? Well back then I figured I would go ahead and buy one for the hell of it. I mean, it is Screech from Saved By The Bell, this is probably not a scam. Well think again because I was almost scammed by him.
On June 20th, 2006 I bought the signed t-shirt for a total of $26.50 via PayPal. On June 29th, 2006 I received an email from Screech, View Partial Email. On July 20th, 2006, one month later, I went to the order tracking link provided for me in the email I received.
I waited and waited, finally on August 2nd, 2006 I sent in a PayPal Dispute. In the dispute I had filed on August 2nd, all I stated is that I would like to either receive the signed t-shirt as promised or get a refund for what I ordered and had yet to receive.
From then till August 18th, I received no responses from Dustin Diamond and escalated the dispute to a claim. Today, August 28th, the dispute is finally over, PayPal reversed the charges and I finally received my $26.50 back.
