Once you release escrow the money goes to the seller and the sale is finalized. This means you can not dispute or get your money back once the sale is finalized. NO fentanyl or fentanyl-laced/based substances (even if it is done ‘correctly’). We no longer allow fentanyl or substances laced/based on it due to buyer safety.
