Holy moly, I know you apologized for the bad writing, but that is still difficult to pick through. Let me introduce you to the period. It's not just for your wife/girlfriend any more. It also ends sentences. That's what allows your reader to know you've finished conveying a thought or statement of fact. It looks like this: . Blown up several sizes it looks like this: .

Seriously, though, not only does your lack of written communication suck, but so does your lack of understanding of how the law really works.

You sold a used RC car to someone. Once the cops take a police report, if the guy doesn't have the item, you have no recourse except small claims court, or going through the USPS for mail fraud. Despite what the Texas office has said in this thread (and no disrespect to you, I appreciate your input) most law enforcement agencies aren't going to waste a lot of time on a small claims theft. Especially when the only evidence is accusations from the alleged victim and a couple of Post Office receipts.

Either way, you could have handled it without flying to Texas to sort out. The plane tickets alone were more than the car was worth. I really hope you weren't serious about that.

You should have called a local Texas lawyer before flying down there. Cheaper than a plane ticket and it would have probably netted you better results.

None taken

You're correct too, once the report is made and there is nothing phsyical, it stays as just that, a report. At that point it crossed into a civil matter.

Writing isn't the only thing you suck at. Sorry, no disrespect, but it is what it is.
Well you need to read it i said i would have to fly down there to get anything going. and i call a lawyer and there not one thing that can be done and if you open your eyes i said a cop want to the guy home he told the cop he sold my car and for me to do anything i have to fly down there and i did not i do not fly never did never well so before you post read it

I can understand your frustration gamemaster.Just remember this . He who has the lowest feedback ships first. If someone with less feedback cant tell by your trader rating you are an honest trader,buyer or seller. Leave let the deal go. I have had to do this. There seems to be quite alot of scamming lately. Good luck.

I agree with Gamemaster...I think it's a pity he gets teased for lack of grammar skils. I hate punks as much as scammers. this poor guy has been scammed outta 700 bucks and and you guys are ripping on him for not using periods.

I'm not teasing him about his grammar. I'm saying its pretty hard to understand what he is saying. It takes so much time to translate the bad grammar that its difficult to be very sympathetic.

Let's face it, nobody is demanding that grammar and spelling be perfect. All we're asking is that you have some semblance of ability to communicate effectively with others.

If you can't, you really shouldn't try to conduct transactions like this on internet forums. Being able to communicate effectively is a requirement if you don't want to get ripped off.

Stick to Craigslist and local, so you can do it in person.

If you're offended by what I say, sorry, I can't help that.

+1. I did get the part about being taken for $700, but I honestly can't make out the rest of what the guy is saying. No offense intended. I did try a few times to comprehend it, but it's just too rough. Anyway, sorry gamemaster to hear about your bad deal.

Good. Now he has a trading partner that understands him. Maybe he will have better luck with the next trade.

Same here. I had a nice message typed out last night, but deleted most of it for the same reason.
