Ok so i was in the works with with making a buy on an amplifier from a guy on this forum.

he has good refs and i figured this would be a safe deal for me...

but i just recieved a PM that said he has family issues (he gave me specific details) and that he can no longer get money from paypal and needs a money order.

the issue i have is the money order is around 300 dollars and as far as i know i have no protection with the MO

what should i do?

he has very good communication and say he will send me a constant picture stream. normally i would trust him but its just one of those things

and to seller: dont take this personal

when i first started out i shipped my stuff first then got money. just send him the amp then he can western union the money to you.

If you can find a 3rd party that will collect both items before shipping/sending anything. I would go that route, just MAKE SURE they are there to help you, and not help themselves out to a new amp, and some money.

if he doesn't have refs, then you should not be sending amp first.

I don't have Paypal so MO or check is what I've always done. Be sure to get a phone number and call first to talk and see how it seems...

set up a PP account threw a close friend or family member and have them give u the cash and then ship the amp...

well the only person who would have done that is sitting in jail right now and is probably going to prison ( ie: my father )thats why cash it the utmost importance right now so i can pay the bills
