Back in 09' I had a housing that I sold on here. Most of this is my fault and I'm sorry I didn't come back on here to warn everyone. But, I was so infuriated with what happened I didn't want anything to remind me of getting stolen from. 


There is a member who I do not think is active anymore on here, LEPHOT. I put a housing for a D300 on here and he messaged me. We exchanged emails a few times and agreed on a sale. He paid me $1,190 for the housing, flash, and shipping. I shipped the package but tried to save him money so I went USPS. He didn't ask for this. My mistake. Some weeks later he refused to reply to my emails and whether he received the package or not. Then he challenged the transaction with PayPal. I had the declaration from the USPS of it being shipped but that wasn't good enough. So I had some friends help me get ahold of the French Post Office where I was given the package scan with Jean-Marc Courtier name printed and signature receiving the package. But still, PayPal gave the man his money back and he never responded to me again. 


What a hard pill to swallow. I'll give that one to me being dumb and in my 20's. The reason for coming on here now... I've been on here a lot lately as just a few months ago I got back into underwater photography. And, there is a lawsuit against paypal I just joined for account holds and improper handling of disputed cases. We'll see what happens. It really sucked having my blood boil again. 


Anyhow, here are a few photos of late so you all don't think I'm just a big baby as I have not contributed here, just browse. Hopefully you all do not mind spearfishing.
