Yep, if you can get the Postal Police, or at least their local postal inspector involved, you will definitely have charges pressed.

Not a USPS Money Order, but it was sent USPS.

Report the fraud to your local post office and ask what steps you should take.

What about a tracking number and/or insurance for through the shipping? If I buy anything over $100, I always make sure I get a tracking number and insurance on the package.

If you read all of the first post, there was no tracking number given as the communicatoin stopped before then :(

WTF! and my sister bought a diaper bag for $500!!!!!!!!! i found something that looked BETTER than that at target/walmart (cant remember) for like 25-30 dollars!!

WTF! i move to ban women from spending money, FOREVER!


edit: for those who couldnt figure it out, i was being 100%, well 95%, sarcastic when i wrote this ;)

This is one the latest scams going on. Someone builds up some feedback, then dumps a load of expensive goods on ebay. After they receive the $$$, they unregister which prevents the bidders from leaving feedback. After 90 days, repeat. Totally sucks, contact all the local authorities and www.fraud.org as well. Hope it works out.

Its probably the same reason why you would buy a 3.2 instead of a 2.4 ;)

i can see your arguement, but at least there is a tangible difference. it doesnt make them look, smell, or act any nicer when they have their expensive POS purse on.

egads what a terrible looking...whatever that is.

anyway the best thing to do as suggested before is to contact the local PD, and the trollhunters. $800 is a large chunk of change, enough to get the police interested.

another good point...but that doesnt make any of them less or more stupid than the other...it just puts them all on the same plane.

wow, chanel can slap their label on anything


nonetheless, contact the police, file fraud claim with ebay, and of course the FBI, since if they can hunt down MP3 downloaders for the RIAA surely they can spare a moment for a real crime
