Unhappy question??

im buying a b4 from this guy on another site, and sent him a money order from my bank shipped to him the next day. the guy later replied with this:

"Im sorry i dont know if i made it clear i need a post office money or like i said in the email. I will have to ship this money order and the amount you paid to ship it back to you i cant cash this money orders sorry again. please contact if any questions 11 am your time jonathan"

He has 52 good feedbacks so he's not scamming

But why would he not able to cash a money order

Has anyone had this problem before

Maybe he doesn't have a bank account and if not, he would have a problem trying to get a bank money order cashed. There is a lot of fraud involving bank money orders (I retired from banking and one of the areas I managed worked on this type of fraud).

Maybe you can cash a Postal Money order at the Post Office....don't know.

I did have one guy who only accepted Postal Money orders, no PayPal, checks, or bank money orders.

Agreed.

He cant cash them with out a bank account, and there are many fraudulant bank money orders out there because each bank has a differnt style of check.

The postal money orders are all the same no matter what post office you buy them from, and they can be cashed at the post office.

If he did acutally mention that in his ad, he isnt the one that did something incorrectly, and he did offer to wait for you to correct the issue.

I think it is very stand up on his part.

Just my .o2

I've found the postal & western union money orders to be the best. Like others have said anything else can be easily duplicated. I know living in the us when buying from say europe they prefer western union. Well honestly everyone I dealt with has. When he sends it back talk to your bank & then send him a postal money order. He should of stated which kind he prefers but you could of asked as well.

Peace Aaron(W-W)

If I'm not mistaken the postal money order can be cashed at the post office?

If he sent you back the $15 you spent to next day your first payment, it sounds like he is trying to do the right thing. It's not like he had to do that. Keep your cool the best you can for a few more days. There's not much else you can do. If you get angry with him, it won't help. Maybe he's had some kind of family emergency or he is on vacation.

Good Deals are always around even locally. I just sold my XXX-T CR with a painted body, new body, 2 sets of used pink tapers, i brand new set of rims and a few set's of front tires for 175 shipped. Hell to someone from LIR i would have sold it for $150. People just seem to always be in a rush for a deal. If you wait you can always find a deal.

Is he in a different country? If so he won't be able to cash a regular money order. He would probably need an International Money Order. I think they are pink in colour and should be available from the same place.
