Back in 2001, I sold an M1A Flash supressor to Jack in California. I shipped in advance of payment (no comments on that please) and after a few weeks, I had not been paid. I thought maybe it had been lost in the mail, so I asked him to stop payment and send another check. He said sure he had sent the check but he would cancel and send another one. Didn't hear from him for several weeks. Finally he responded with some BS story about how he was on vacation, getting married, etc. and had forgotten to send the check in the first place, but that he would get one out ASAP. He was true to his word this time. He sent me check number 3003 drawn on Citibank of 1525 Grant Avenue Novato, CA 94945 in the amount of $40.
Damn thing bounced, imagine that.
He can afford an M1A, but has to screw me out of 40 bucks.
BTW - His email no longer works
