Deal gone bad!! scam???

I made a deal to buy a m4 from achanman. we had agreed on a price and method of payment. I mailed to money order to him. While payment in transit buy way of Canada post he notifies me that the gun had been stolen. (Hmmm). He agreed to return my money order to me upon arrival. It took 4 days to get to the payment to him. Its been 2 weeks since he said he had received it.. Odd? I had spent $8 for the money order charge and $15 to put a stop payment on it. He said he would pay me for the charges. Nice... Guess it time to call the RCMP?? I hope it comes back and this isn't what it REALLY looks like.


ISSUE RESOLVED. thanks for holding up your end achanman.

Send him a final warning about your intentions. Give a resonable delay for him to respond and then, if it fail, take the legal route.

Like I mentioned, there is a stop payment on the money order so its useless. I just want it back for peace of mind and that it not used in any fraudulant transactions.. He is in contact and seams sincere but anyone can blow smoke up someones ass. And it doesn't take 2 weeks to mail an envelope from B.C. to Ontario.

wait so you sent money, then found out the gun was stolen, so you stopped the payment. and now you want to call the RCMP for the 23$ you lost, meanwhile he hasnt gained a cent in this "scam"?

Your our $23, it could be worse. But I do understand why you want the money order back. I would contact your bank/whoever you got the MO from and ask them if there are any issues that you the issuer could be responsible for if it was used fraudulently. Give him 48 business hours. Otherwise contact the authorities to see your options, theres a good chance they may not do anything though because, really no crime has been committed you just think there has.

If anything, get is AV status revoked.

my issue is that it could be used for another transaction. And the seller may not know that the money order is useless.. I am not concerned about the $20 i am out.

i dont see any crime. it sucks that he couldnt send you the gun, but he was honest about it and told you. if it was a scam hed just cash the check and f'off. 23$ loss is nothing and thats not him, thats your bank. i had to swallow a 40$ charge once of a MO. sucks but thats what happens

If the person had a clue, there is a phone number and code on the MO that you call in order to find out the authenticity of the MO, so technically your in the clear.
