Default Yet another advice needed

I recently bought a vorza from someone here on the forum, and paid with an e-check from paypal. There was problems with the payment on my end because of a bank account mix-up, and so I agreed to send him a money order. I sent it out last wednesday, and he claims to have never received it. I sent it regular post not knowing this would happen. Now he wants the vorza back, so i would be out 300 bucks and the vorza. I do not feel that this is a fair deal. How am I to know that he did not actually receive it, cash it, and then tell me he never got it? Any suggestions?

If you really sent the money order you are in the clear. I wouldn't send it back to him. Do you have a receipt for the money order? You may be able to call and see if it has been cashed. Don't screw yourself, he may just be trying to scam you.

Many members know exactly how M.O.'s work, and will likely chime in. I know very little to be honest, I haven't used one in like 15 years.

I wouldn't send the Vorza back. Huggy is actually right on that part......did I actually say that

I found this online. Looks like if it was cashed PO will be able to tell you who signed the back as they scan it in their system. Also if it wasn't you can put a stop payment and then resend "certified" so you KNOW he will get it. Sorry for your hassle.

Default Vorza payment

My name is Dr. Scott K. Butts and I am the person who sold the vorza to him. He has failed twice with paypal; two times they, paypal, tried to get money from his account and his account was NSF. Now thirdly, I did not recieve the cashiers/bank check. I didn't recieve check, Im not hard up for money and wouldn't lie/scam anyone. I'm very frustrated, I have done my part of the sale. I have sent him the Vorza, and now it is his responsibility to pay me. I dont know what happened to the check, all I know is it did not get to me. I told him he should of sent it certified, but he didn't. Now he is saying that I am a scammer, farthest thing from the truth. I just want my money, this is his fault. Call me number is 919 452 6194 (cell) 919 267 6866. You can talk to me and my wife, we did not recieve the check in the mail, period. Thank you, Scott.

Of course you threw away the ONE thing that could prove you sent it or if it was cashed. Sounds just like the "well I meant to get delivery confirmation but my wife forgot". Typical.

I know right, lol. I think I screwed myself here, and the guy is being a complete jerk about it and I am trying my hardest to work with him.

Bud im not being a jerk about this, just pay me. You screwed up. You did not send me the money, I have recieved nothing from you. You PM me and stated you bought another Rc car after buying my vorza, what the hell you doing buying another rc car before paying me. Call me, 919 452 6194, be a man and do the right thing. Scott.

What an interesting twist... I don't know who to believe in this one but am leaning more towards Incisor at the moment.

Did you ship it before the payment was confirmed?

If I didn't send the money order then why would I be posting first? Don't u think I would want no one to know.

Unfortunately there are mistakes on both sides (and please correct me if I'm wrong). Buyer didn't keep money order receipt (big mistake [unless money order was never purchased in the first place]) and seller shipped before money was in hand .

There is no one in the right here. You always save any documentation for ANY transaction you do on here until both sides are satisfied (even then file away for future). And never ship anything until money is in hand (electronic or physically).
