Beware of this guy P40wr!!!

He does not return any E-mails/PM's. It has been 3 weeks since we made a deal. Does not follow through.

You seem to skate around the question of paying him. Did you pay him for the item or not?

Yes I did pay him for the item. A US Postal MO, I cost you to check if the recipient has cashed it. It is not worth the extra money to see if P40wr has cashed it. I am cutting my loss. I wanted to warn everyone! Beware!!!

I will never understand why people pay via money order...You might as well just send cash and cross your finger that it isn't a scam. Anyone paying any other way than PayPal, or some other form of protected payment, is just asking to get scammed, IMO. I'm not saying that you are stupid for paying that way, but I certainly hope you learn a valuable lesson.

I have sent MO's. Mostly USPS MO's.
Never had a problem.
Why? I send them via USPS Priority with "Direct" signature confirmation.
Only the person I send it to can receive it and only with a valid ID.

I photo document/scan and so on, the MO along with the USPS Priority label and all the tracking/receiving info.

If you buy with a postal money order and it has been cashed, the scam should be reported to the Postmaster General, who WILL investigate it.

pp

I dont want to offend anyone but if you cant use paypal theres probably a reason,no checking account to verify funds or some other reason which to me would raise red flags,I know a lot of people dont have paypal simply because they dont know how to set it up but its so easy,get help from a friend or co worker and stop sending mo's,its just too risky and paypal provides such an awsome service so dont complain about their fees.

and for goodness sakes never use western union
I love this hobby and that is the reason I spend a little more time doing things the right way,simply to save time and money and prevent others from taking advantage of me. Good luck to everyone and have a blessed year.

Postal money order fraud is a big no no. Report the incident (IF IT HAS BEEN CASHED).
