    Not sure if mentioned yet, but you can go online and file a fraud complaint at uspis.com.

    I had a seller on gunbroker try and scam me in January. I should have known better, he didn't have many transactions, and when I looked later, they were all things he bought, not sold.

    Supposed to be a pristine 1927 1911... pics turned out (we found out later) to be from an auction house in a different state. Sent me a 1970s beat up pos.

    I finally went through a combination of uspostal investigator and the ffl who shipped the pistol, got my money back, but it was a pain in the butt. Postal inspectors are the BOMB! (non-class III types).

    I hate some people. Most, seems like. Which is crazy, because mostly I'm a happy, nice guy.

    Good luck man. And if anybody is ever scammed by someone within about 100 miles of Angelo, hit me up, i'll help.

    I remember reading about a kid who scammed a guy over a cb radio. He sent the kid a package bomb.

    Fun to think about, but not the kind of thing I want to even joke about trying.

    So, you mentioned YOUR feedback. I would imagine that you have entered appropriate feedback for this "buyer"? You need to warn others using eBay away from the scammer...

    Yep, ol Ted didn't mess around. LOL.

    Seriously though,
    For that matter neither does Mossad. If you ever get a package post marked Jerusalem from a Mr Damocles I strongly suggest you dont open it.

    Just sayin. That's the kinda feedback that will kill your entrepreneurial ambitions permanently.
