    He could have sold one of the knives he recently traded on knife_swap and paid you back (at least partially). Or he could have used those funds for his legal team. But I guess working on his collection takes priority.

    You didn’t receive your chargeback at the same time as everyone else? This supposedly was a one time event The latest explanation provided was that he flagged one transaction on PP as questionable and PP took it upon themselves to chargeback every transaction he did for a year.

    Wow. It's funny how that only happens to Heath Helton. Apparently, when your name is Heath Helton, you get flagged by both PayPal and your bank.

    Then your funds will be held until you sell all the property in question and you get a GoFundMe account set up with the beneficiary being Heath Helton.

    If your name doesn't happen to be Heath Helton, not to worry. Just tell them that Heath Helton sent you.

    Those that choose to roost with Helton, and perpetuate his scams, thanks for posting.

    It makes it so much easier to ignore you.

    I received the chargeback at the same time as everyone else, which was after his last recorded purchase.

    This thread is already the top on Google, at least for me. I'm pretty sure this horse meat is tenderized by now.

    Only if USPS was used. I however, have no confidence in the Postal Inspectors. Every case I worked with them involved them providing us the information and us (cops) investigating the case and making the arrest. My cases involving them were not theft/fraud cases though, they were all drugs.

    You didn’t read all the posts appearently. The most recent information provided was that purchases were made after the chargebacks.

    I see. Thanks for letting me know, I'll be going back through the posts to find that. And I'll definitely be asking Heath about it.

    I must have missed the post to which you were addressing your reply. I am sure that you are correct considering the subject matter, however

    Just to make sure though, are you referring to a transaction involving Heath Helton?

    He bought a knife in January. Evidence and the guy he bought it from is in the last couple pages. That money should have gone to those he owes.

    Yeah. I had a transaction from around August of 2017 where cash from a partial trade was contested and lost via paypal chargeback in December of 2017 (same time as everyone else). I had not realized he had been making purchases after the chargeback snafu occurred; I assumed he was only selling/raffling what he already had and was going to use that cash to pay back those he owed, so I'll be looking into that.
