Smitty - great advice! I was scammed a few years ago and in hindsight it was SO obvious. But I learned from it. If I buy anything on ebay that's more than a few hundred dollars I do the same thing. Home phone, name, address, etc and check them out!

Get on pay pal hard like every day get his name and phone number try every thing. I had a problem with one seller paypal was the best help I got their account frozen and their home phone number called every day for a week until they talked to me. And I did finely got it straightened out call your states attorney generals office for a little free help go after the pond scum!!
