Due to various circumstances that each company or person involved seems to have a different story about, member dinictis had 50+ paypal disputes/chargebacks issued against various sellers on the community and elsewhere. He has been in contact with me and his credit card company/paypal to try to resolve this, but sometime overnight his LJ account was suspended, just as he was planning to make a post to the community about the issue.
Basically everyone seems to have a different story and information on what exactly happened to cause this and how to fix it, but to all affected members, please know we are working to try to get everyone's money returned to you. Dinictis has been in occasional contact with me so far about this and is attempting to solve it on his end.
I understand anybody who feels suspicious about all of this as we really are not sure exactly what happened, but for now we will keep hoping it will be solved quickly and everyone's money will be returned promptly. Apparently this same incident has been occurring in a few selling/buying communities around the net, and any potentially helpful information or insight is welcome!
Thank you, citizens!
