Description of Bad Deal: Read chat transcript below. Basically BollaZee advertised 1500$ in crypto for basically R17/$ I payed him and he then had a lot of reasons why he can not pay still hoping he's acount isnt hacked and I can get my money back.

LJF:

BollaZee:
OK it's possible.
Which crypto?

tronscan indicated you received please confirm

BollaZee:!!!Here I realise I'm and idiot for trusting him!!
I checked. yes it's gone.
I was going to send you a payment from my brother's bank.
But my brother wouldn't let me send the money without getting all the crypto.
Can you send the full?
Otherwise I will have to refund it.

LJF:
Please refund as you are changing the terms of the deal.
TTjjnNxfHL19MHscb5AqnJooJ4uUHSTbgw
As agreed pay for what you received or refund me, I can send proof that I have the funds available

BollaZee:!!! Red flag 2!!!
OK, I'll pay you tomorrow night.
Because my phone is off and I can't enter Kraken, the verification code is not coming.
But if you send the full payment, I'm ready to send it to your bank instantly.
Or send another $500 and I'll send it all.


LJF:
You are still changing the terms which I am not happy with. I really went out of my way and send you and irreversible payment trusting you sending first, if you can not honor our deal we need to cancel.
I will update your post now as well as this feels a bit like a scam


BollaZee:
Dude, ok but I can return it tomorrow.
I talked to my brother now, he said he should complete $1000, then send the money to the man. He said not to upset the man for nothing.
Send another $350 and $1000 will be completed, then I will make the full payment instantly.
Send the remaining $500. arrow?

LJF:
Tx will wait until tomorrow and see... I have reported your account to the admin and updated the post in case the account is hacked.

BollaZee:
If my account is banned for reporting, I can't refund you. Because I won't have access here. Send $350 and I'll send your money to your bank right away. please update your message in the post.
Dude, please don't complicate what we can do in 5 minutes.
Send and I'll send your money right away, I'm ready.

LJF:
Please read this conversation and if it doesn't scream scam to you I do not know what does.

BollaZee:
Are you sending ? otherwise i will exit


LJF:
An admin will be in contact with you to verify the account

BollaZee:
I'm dating, I can't deal with your kid stuff If my account is banned, forget your money.


TO DATE NOTHING RECEIVED. ACCOUNT WAS REPORTED TO ADMIN AND HE WAS BANNED AS A PRECATION. IF ANYONE HAS INFORMATION ON HIM OR KNOW HIM: NAME, ADDRESS, BANK ACCOUNT INFO, ID I WILL APRICIATE YOU SENDING IT TO ME TO OPEN A POLICE CASE?

Is there no way to indicate when a user has two factor authentication activated on their account or not? Obviously I think from now on, I would like to avoid, irrespective of rating, those without.

Everyone has 2FA enabled by now, but it seems like they're still using old email 2FA. That's why we removed it. We would STRONGLY suggest everyone switch over to app-based 2FA (using apps like Authy or Google Authenticator).

The ONLY way a scammer can hack an account now is with a compromised email account. That means the scammer has the email and passwords for Carbonite and the email account. So it's a huge problem that people in 2022 still can't do proper email security.
