Not going to say by who until, I'm 100% sure, What do I do if so? I mean I can't call the cops right? No receipt, No signed agreements, & What if he don't sign for the package? Then there's for sure no proof I don't want to sit here and keep reading threw all the bullsh*t other people have sadly gone through I want to know what I'm supposed to do.

Help please

I had sold a SAZ-1500D to a guy on here, & since I am new & only have one ref, from buying I agreed to ship first, Which in my opinion is fair because I checked it out, The guy has about 8-9 refs, Seems like a good dude, Well I shipped it last week on Monday, It arrived via UPS, on thursday, & once he got it he said he would pay-pal the cash to me after he tested it, & Then never messaged back, The amp was in mint condition not a scratch or a flaw So I know it worked, I've tried emailing, Calling, texting done it all about twice a day. He didn't sign for it & I know when they do it shows up on the ups website.

Its been 1 day since it was supposed to have arrived. If he didnt sign for it then im almost sure he doesnt have it. Wait a few.

That's sounding pretty fishy...honestly your best bet would be to name him and hope someone on here knows him personally and can contact him to see what's up.

It say's delivered, They won't necessarily leave with the package if you don't sign for it, sometimes I sign for my stuff sometimes I don't he admitted he had it anyhow, & was going to pay me after he tested it.

Did he receive it YESTERDAY or last Thursday? It makes a difference bro...

If it had a signature requirement on it, he would have HAD to sign it or UPS would not turn it over to him. If it did not have a signature requirement, UPS would just leave it there.

Ok yeah, so he's had it for more than a week, that's plenty of time to test it...Like I said, your better off naming him and trying to find someone that knows him to get in contact with him and find out what's up...

I'm not going to do any of that until Monday, I would rather not bash him if it's just a misunderstanding, I just need to know what to do if it becomes more on an issue?

Do it now, you have nothing to lose... Last thing I would want to do is give him more time to hide or try to cover his ***.

This is why you never send something without having the money, even if you are a new user.

So you are possibly getting scammed and you dont want to warn anyone else or help yourself.

You need to name them. Once the agreement goes out the window (test and then pay) then he is scamming you, wake up. The worst part is you made this thread and are not helping anyone else out, you are just giving him a chance to scam more people.

No, He isn't I just got a money order in the mail & cashed it 5 minutes ago from him, I still haven't heard from him though. I don't know what the deal is. He did say it was going to be threw paypal not a MO

hope that m.o was a usps m.o. Could be a false one and if it gets cashed and something goes wrong after its been cashed your responsible for paying back the money. Just sayin. but if thats not the case. Glad you got your money
