My buddy needs some help, just dont know what we can do other than the usual file a complaint with the USPS.

He won an auction on ebay for a set of wheels 2 weeks ago, payment was sent extremely fast, with a USPS money order. He had a conversation with the gentleman before the auction closed, but now, after it ended and money has been sent, NO email/phone/message from the seller.

My buddy is a little intimidated to get the police involved but i told him that is what is next. He paid with a USPS money order, so we wont know until 30 days if it has been cashed..

So, anyone live in the area and now a Police Officer or someone we can contact?

Glen Allen is one of the west most suburbs of Richmond...I am there every week, unfortunately I do not know any cops there...

I would, however, contact the Henrico County Police Department...the only problem you might run into is that Richmond is a busy crime area, and it may take a while to run down this particular incident...

also, if he used USPS money order, and it has been cashed, get the post office involved...they take fraudulent use of the USPS very seriously, and those postal inspectors are dying to start some shit..
