We understand, and appreciate the heads up. But there's a "Trader Feedback" area of this forum dedicated to this type of issue.

English......

If no money was exchanged, then nobody was scammed.
Its just as much your fault as his that you let him string you along for 3 weeks.
Next time tell people first come first serve. Dont contact me until you have the funds to pay, and move on to the next buyer.

he was letting us know about a poss scammer pay with fake western union funds.

i have seen this before they ask for the following

address
home phone number
full name

then they send you a western union money gram or money order that's fake. you cash it and you already ship then you lost you items and no money. i get emails from Craigslist from saying i will buy your item, need the following info i posted above. then they say my shipper accidently made the montey order for 300$ to much, you cash it and keep your asking price but you send me back the difference.next thing you know your bank tells tyhe M/O was fake now you lost your item and money.

Western Union is an option, just make sure you do some research on the person you're dealing with. I wouldn't ship a pack of gum until my bank told me everything was good and I had the cash in my hand.

One more reason not to run to the computer and leave "great buyer, fast payment" feedback like so many people think we should do.

Why would you even go the western union route? The post office has money orders and you can send them out right after you get them. If you are really worried about it you can send it in a bubble envelope with delivery confimation. I have not had one issue with postal money orders.

I've done Western Union once. The way it was done left no room for scamming. The other person sent money through western union and I went to a western union location (inside my local super market) and they gave me the cash. I just needed my identification and the numbers etc from the transaction.

Western Union isn't an issue if you go to a Western Union to get your money, it's known immediately if it's real or not, and you specify, no shipping until money is CLEARED and in you hands.

+1 for WU wire transfer, it works flawlessly. Money orders you have to take inside your bank, yes, actually get out of your car and walk inside!!!! The tellers can spot fake documents and you will know if it's BS. It's when you deposit fake money orders at ATM's that it takes days or weeks for the fraud to be discovered. Wait for the money order to completely clear your bank before you ship.

Because Western Union is immediate. The sender sends money at a WU location, you go to the local WU office and pick up your money.

Sending WU money orders is what is a bad idea and I agree with using the USPS instead for those. They are protected by wire/mail fraud clauses.

Heh, either way the only way anyone is going to buy something from me is through PayPal (but you must pay as a gift or add 3%, hopefully everyone will get the joke behind that)

And simply because it's as close to hassle free as you can get, that's the method of payment I use as well.
