scammed
Well I did everything wrong, made a purchase from a new member with no feedback. used PO money order. I was so caught up in the deal the good sense was lost. so Im out $600 bucks. DONT let this happen to you!! ask for feedback, If they don't use a protected payment system, it should raise a red flag.

Moderator, I don't know if its OK to put this user name up or not, I not, do what you have to do with this topic, but flyjones42 disappeared from the map after I sent him money.

watch out guys and gals, the bad guys are out there!

Sorry to hear. I always look at the members profile info such as if he is new, has he made any posts other than for sale, and of course as you have mentioned, feedback, and PayPal (some protection).
.
Perhaps you should follow up with the P.O. and see if you can claim mail fraud. Probably not, but worth a try to shake a stick at the guy.
I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Working with buyers to "find" "lost packages" is often just a method to buy time and exhaust the victim in a scandal. This is particularly true with paypal scams due to time limits to file a claim, although this is not the case with a Postal Money Order.Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

I would file a claim with the postal inspectors office ASAP .... If the issue is resolved then the case can be closed ....Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

Sorry this happened to you I always try to give new members the benefit of the doubt as some people did for me when I was new. However, the postal money order or paypal gift should not even be asked for unless by a highly established or reputable member. Good luck and I hope this works out for you.
