Lesson learned. Don't hand over money until item is in hand. The fact e was in a bind for money should have been a red flag right there.

I agree with the "don't hand over the money until item is in hand".
Bought a rifle from a member. Met member, got rifle, checked it out, gave money and I kept the rifle, he kept the money. I went home, he went shopping.

Might do it. I won't be buying though.
Me either. Personally, I'll find other sources than the TGT classifieds to buy a gun. I got chastised by two members for asking a question about the price of a gun that was for sale, that I was interested in buying or doing some trading. That won't happen ever again.

For the most part, I kind of doubt it would be a criminal matter that the DA would even do anything. Wouldn't hurt to call them and ask, but more than likely they would consider it a civil matter and not a criminal one.
