Today marks 36 pain-free days. Tomorrow is another 2-week checkup. Things are going really well.
And after filing a claim through Paypal for the money I lost at The Scooter Store, today I heard from Paypal -- they have deposited $250 back into my account. Just wanted to report that Paypal honored the promise on its website that they will make good if something goes wrong when buying from a Verified Seller.
