Police told me that they can cash it somehow with the money order numbers. Should've know better. I knew something wasn't right.

He got me. His English was much better in talking to me. O posts. Which I questioned. Said he could provide two people that he sold to previously. Didn't question it then. Asked for tracking number and numbers off of money usps money order. Police told me that they can cash that money order somehow with just the numbers off the money order. Will contact fraud at the USPS today. See if I can get my money back, I doubt it.

Lance,
Sorry to hear that he got to you. He also contacted me but our deal never went anywhere since he could not satisfy me that he was real. I am a little sensitive to this since I was very close to getting scammed earlier this year as well.
Recently, in another posting, I learned that you can alert the mods to a suspected scammer by reporting the post using the red triangle in the top right side of the posting.
Neat trick since the mods PM boxes are constantly full with all kinds of communications.
Maybe that will help if you get another scammer make an attempt.

Rob

Gents, Another one to add to the list. This time I got a PM from a user whose profile is locked. Here's the Message:

Hello,
I have a barrel here marked for you.
Can you send me your shipping address so I may get it out to you.
Kyle

Username KBM, 0 Posts, locked profile you can't view.

Beware

But thanks to all who responded about me, much appreciated.

I think this is closed, Merry Christmas to all!

Agreed...not within the scope of this thread, and OBE.

Merry Christmas!
