    This guy known on here as BlueyAU sold me a fortnite account via Middleman. He just received the money today, when he found out that PayPal takes a little out for taxes or whatever, he messages me saying that I need to pay him $20 more or he will take the account back. This was not part of the deal obviously. So, he recovered the email and changed the password on me without a refund. I even spent additional money in game on that account once I received it. The nerve of this guy.

    @BlueyAU you have 48 hours to resolve this otherwise we'll open a ticket with EpicGames and just ban the account. Either be legit or we'll take action against you.

    His name is

    Benjamin Karwicki

    It looks like he is creating multiple paypal accounts to try to scam people. Will have to report this to PayPal and get these closed. He'll be perma blacklisted by PayPal.

    @Hulk Well, it’s been over 48 hours and he has nothing to say. I guess Epic can ban him now.

    @Nathan Nieto . I made a thread about how the fortnite thread is full of scammers and that theyre only a few legitimate sellers . Anyway , i love fortnite and play it a lot heck even bought an account myself but what confuses me is how did he get the account back ? When i bought my account i needed it for ps4 so i asked for the psn email and Epic games email then after i received them i changed the pass. The same would be for xbox but you get the xbox live account and for pc you only need the Epic games email.Now what confuses me is the fact that how was it possible with you using Middleman for him to retrieve the account . The only way he could get back the info is if he did not give you all the info on the 3 way conversation and you did not check properly if he had linked the account or any other type of method to trick you or you did not change the pass when receiving the account which are the only two ways in which he could have retrieved the account. Unless i am wrong you clicking "buyer confirms delivery" means you confirm delivery and not saying its your fault but i do not think middleman will refund $135 for your misdoings

    if you could post some evidence of the 3 way convo so we can see what info he gave you (obviously not the passwords you can blur them) or more evidence of your email being locked because i could just take a screenshot of me refreshing my email after disconnecting from wifi and that message would be there :)
