I had paid for an item that the person says they are in the UK. I had never received the item. I have been emailing the person, no replies. What kind of action can I do? Im pretty sure police cant get involved because its international...paypal wasnt used.

The 1st thing that comes to mind is, why would you do that? The 2nd is what service did you use to purchase and which service did you use to pay?

i trust all. it wasnt a lot of money.

i used alibaba.com to get the items.

a post office to send it and email to have an agreement that both partys will send once they receive. i looked up the money order and it was cashed...but no item was shipped. this was a month a go ...maybe longer

theres nothing you can do. you dont know his real name, his address, nothing about him. he could/most likely was using a fake name/address. thats how international scamming works.it sucks wink.gif how much did you lose if you dont mind me asking?

Look, you got screwed by a 419 scammer, if you want you can try and get him back (www.thescambaiter.com). But you fell for it myfreind, what did you 'buy' and how much did you loose?

You know, you havea point. Lets make sure we have the facts together, albeit lack of them to begin with:

Ok, I can only think of one off the top of my head, YOU SENT 600 DOLLARS TO SOME GUY IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY! Good game.

I'm with Modderxtrordanare
Owned.

As well, you sent a money order... BAD idea... use an escrow service or something.

Look, I feel for you, but dont come on here expecting total compasion without a hint of backlash... You. Fucked. Up. Live with it, or fly to wherever he is and kick some ass...

Alright alright, fair enough. Look, as far as the money you already lost you are pretty much screwed, but you may be able to get some revenge, I recomend visiting www.thescambaiter.com and getting some help from them, who knows, it may be the legendary Cole! (Read the site, you'll know who I'm talking about).

As I said, out of things like this I personally never do anything with people overseas, as well as shipping costs shit like this happens. If you DO continue business actions with people in other countries I highly recomend the use of a known, reputable, escrow service.
