lebron south beach scammed video Scammed For South Beaches, Receives Special Gift From LeBron James

What comes around goes around. The works with fortunes good and bad, and for one unlucky sneakerhead, his luck changed for the better. In a news report picked up by Miami-based WSVN7, Keven Rodriguez was scammed out of a pair of LeBron 8 South Beaches by a scam artist in what’s become one of the more common methods these days (we won’t go into that). The money he would get for the sale was intended to be used for academic purposes, so with the help of WSVN7′s Help Me Howard, Rodriguez and Scammer Guard tracked down the seller and is currently being pursued by local authorities. However, a representative for the Miami Heat caught wind of the news, and decided a nice gift was in order – a pair of the LeBron 9 Elite ‘Miami Vice’ signed by LeBron James himself. It’s great to see that the Heat and LeBron James would look out for their fans, but the truth is that scamming is still very much a part of the unofficial sneaker market. Be safe and smart with your money and your kicks! via ITSB

Stick to ebay kid, at least you can file a claim on the site and it insures you up to a certain amount on paypal. Kid has a expensive gear to be so young. He must have a hell of a summer job or spoiled as hell

Okay, I watched the clip. Are you kidding me? This dümkoff gets himself scammed, and gets treated like a celebrity? Please. Not for nothing, that shouldn't have happened to him, but, that is just how it goes down sometimes in life. No way LBJ should have stepped in. Trip money, my ass. I'm looking at this kid and have deduced that that trip would have been paid for regardless.

Rule # 1 for selling sneakers on Craigslist: NEVER ACCEPT PAYPAL. Even if Miami/Lebron didnt give him shoes, I wouldn't feel sorry for him. Those Elite Lebron 9s signed by LJ are work WAY MORE than $700 and I bet he aint putting those on Craigslist.

That's why I buy local or I buy retail. I stay patient and pick my spots. I'm face to face with anyone who buys or sells kicks from me. Ain't no scams going down then. They don't wanna problems with me face to face. Nobody's jaw is that fuc$!in strong!

i respect lebron a little more now after he did that. Those are a 1 of 1 if you think about it. Hard enough to get the s.b. 9's but to also have them signed is awesome.

why when everybody else has to pay 250+ fa a dam shoe... lebron doesnt care bout his fans cuz if he did, he would tell nike to not retail his shoe at 250.... Durant on da other hand is fa his fans fa makin his shoes under 100

those SB8s didn't look deadstock, but if they were, and he sold them for 700, he deserved to be scammed. I hoped they were beaters at least.

I don't get it? Did he ship before payment? If so, rookie move.

I guess the buyer filed a case with paypal that he never received the shoes (when he actually did) and paypal a buyer friendly company decided with him and refunded him the $700 +.
