    I paid for a split but didn't receive anything (YouTube)

    Recently I contacted a known Youtube reviewer, and bought from him a decant/split of Millesime Imperial.
    I already paid him through PayPal, but after that he disappeared! It's been 1 month since I paid him, and I haven't heard from him. He won't answer my Youtube PM's too.
    What should I do? Ask Paypal for a refund? Or is it too early to take action?

    Thanks guys :)

    EDIT:
    I just received the package, everything is alright!

    I
    don't know if he's going through something, because there's no update on his youtube channel's feed for 1 month now too...

    ashkan has a habit of disappearing, which is why i wouldn't trust him for any splits.

    I'm not going to slander anyone's name.

    I will say that if I were to swap or purchase anything from a youtube reviewer it would definitely be someone that makes videos frequently where their reputation is on the line, therefore they would be cautious of doing any funny business.

    Same with basenoters I would much rather swap and purchase from a consistent and frequent basenoter rather than one that appears and disappears.

    i can't say whether he's a scammer or not. you never know, he could be extremely busy, forgetful or going through a lot of stress in life.

    still, no excuse. when you make a trade, you have to fulfill your end of the bargain.

    Im preaty sure if i gave I told a person," Hey I will have so n so so pornstar hangout with us come over." I am sure any person would remember. How did he not forget to receive payment. lol

    Anytime for whatever reason OP, you have a problem with a purchase, file a complaint asap. You work hard for you're money why should you trust a complete stranger with it? IE A person would not have sexual relations with a prostitute without a condom, why wait for a random stranger to have full controll of your money, thinking after the deadline to file a complaint, if hes going to hold his end of the bargain.

    Yep, agree with you all!
    I already opened a dispute on paypal...let's see where it goes.
    Well, it served as experience to me if anything else.

    Bottom line, there is no excuses that can or should be made. If something personal comes up, notify someone.

    I keep reading excuses about people running into personal issues. It happens to the best of us, but that is no excuse for not taking two minutes to contact the person who sent you the money.

    To be fair, there are extenuating circumstances where one could be excused for going AWOL. I.E. a car accident, or some other unexpected mishap.

    Ashkan has been splitting for a long time, i'm sure it's just a misunderstanding.

    I participate only in bn splits. Hepard, Palm beach and kron are some of the greatest splitters and surely reliable.
