ARGH!!

I JUST left Fairview at 5 this morning, was there for a few days visiting my folks on way back from a memorial service in Seattle. I thought the "lowandslow" situation was resolved (more or less) so I didn't do any checking while I was there. I'll pass the name on to my dad and see if he can't find anything.

PERSON WHO SAID PACKAGE WAS INTERCEPTED ON WAY TO HOUSE--pm me the address it was sent to.

Nope, you're on the honor of the parties to the transaction. That said, if someone is well established, etc I trade pretty regularly.

THIS character, though, is a new user (apparently has a COUPLE new names) with little feedback and offers deals that appear too good to be true. Kinda like hanging a flag out that screams "SCAMMER", but folks flock to it (can't pass up what LOOKS like a "deal") and then wonder what the heck happened.

Different P.O. box from my deal but doesn't mean much, he could have more than 1 box.

R.W.
po box 2092
Fairview OR 97024

Same P.O. / zip might have a case for the Postal Inspectors. Try calling the Postmaster at Fairview, his name was Dave.

Just thought I would chime in here, my brother meet this guy in person last month to buy an RC from him, from what I gathered seamed like a good guy guess not. He lives in Cougar WA, everything was done via email so he does not have the guys phone number.

I live in Boring OR and send mail out of Fairview quit often and know Dave, I will stop by there and have a chat with him ...... not sure what all can be done on their part but non the less I will talk to him and find out.

Very glad I never got my pm's responded to this time.
