OP, sorry for your trouble. He's been a member since Jan, 23, and only had 22 posts. For me, that's a red flag. I'd sell to somebody like that, but would never buy from him long distance.

Hope he comes through for you. I hope it's something minor like, he's in ICU with a brain bleed, or something.

I saw all the red flags but like a dumb a$$ I trusted him anyway. I'll not be posting WTB or for sale for awhile. The most all members here are good people. People do things like scamming old men I guess because they are too lazy to work.

You seemed to be basing your opinion on number of posts and/or longevity here.
All the while you post, on average, less than him.
The irony/hypocrisy escaped you.

As the OP said, "I saw all the red flags….."
Always good to trust your gut,

Not gonna waste my time arguing with you.

Your mind is made up and you're not going to be confused with the facts.

Now, that's ironic/hypocrisy.

Hey, one never knows, as noted above he could be 'busy, away, hurt or about anything else', I like to try and believe in my fellow man and let experience be a lesson and a guide, not sure how long its been since you sent any funds or whatever I do knwo the postal service as well as others in shipping seem to take their merry old time...there there are the variables, time zones, does he work?? and we don't , so all things either aren't not fast or soon enough.....nothing wrong with asking a question if ANY of us may have dealt with ,may even know the person, so all valid......good luck , hope you did NOT get 'scammed' and may things work out for you.............:cool:;)

Rugerguy. I under stand that and have been there and done that. What bothers me is the way he ghosted me after he received the money.

I used Paypal because I live a ways from town and it is the easy way for me.. I did send it as a product and not F&F.

yes, you might not get your money back but you can do your best to cause the guy heart ache if at all possible. That's going to be one of my goals when I'm elected president... we are going to have an entire bureau tracking down these scammers and slapping the hell out of them might even have special teams to go out of country....

Got a text from my minister today needing help ..... yeah right, she has my phone numbers and can call.... if I had time I would have done my best to take up the scammer's time at least.....

Could not help myself... I just replied to it... here is what I wrote and sent:

"You know I was gonna do my best to take up as much of your time as possible, but then I started thinking about it and I have not got that much time because I actually work for a living and try to contribute to society not like some people that are just a waste of the life force. I hope one day the fleas of a 1000 camels infest your crotch and you get hemorrhoids."

You'll need 1 office in Nigeria and another in the Middle East ….. pick your country of choice; something ending in "Stan".
