I am afraid that I have been boned on a 'net deal for a firearm. I found a firearm (from another board), spoke with the seller over the phone a couple of times, sealed the deal and sent the USPS Money Order with a signed FFL. The seller has now disappeared from the face of the earth. He won't return any calls, e-mails, etc. I am going to give him another week or so, and then report this to the postmaster, the seller's local law enforcement entity, etc. Have any of you had any [b]firsthand[/b] experience in getting your money back for a USPS Money Order? I'm hoping that I may have a shot at getting my money back, but my gut tells me that I am screwed. Thanks, Bud

Hate to be the one to break the news but, No refunds on Postal MO's unless they are lost, destroyed, or for some reason the recipient did not cash it. -xm

Bud, Sorry to hear about your dillema. Have you contacted others on the board he frequents in an attempt to get a hold of him? Better yet, do you have an address and phone number for him? If you do post it, I'm sure some ar.15 member from the prick's home state may be able to pay him a visit personally...Let us know...Chris

Yes, I lost a $400 knife. It took 6 months to get my money back from the PO.

Thanks for all of the replies. I really appreciate it. I'll give him another week or two, and then will go public with his name, address, phone number, etc. Hopefully, it will not come to that. I'd rather have the gun or the money back without the hassel. It was for a NIB sporting clays shotgun, and they ain't cheap. Bud
