    Who took my money for a yaesu speaker, and then told me it would be tomorrow before shipping, that turned into he needed the weekend and then Monday his excuse was his kid was in hospital and he needed more time, but now is ignoring all of my emails......

    Uhhgg, it's not about the hundred dollars, but more the principle......

    Kinda harsh it's only been a few days though. Maybe his kid IS in the hospital.

    How did you pay? If you used PayPal then you may have recourse. Other methods, not so much.
    Any time I purchase something online, I use PayPal and I never us Friends and Family as a method.

    Have fun

    Sorry to say but you have lost your cash.

    They are professional scammers and very good at what they do. The only answer is to not sell or buy anything online from any adds.

    Always ignore any unsolicited email messages "DO NOT reply to them" replying to an unsolicited email message is only verifying to the scammers that they have you. They will keep trying until they get your cash, they have nothing to loose.

    Good luck,

    All the Warnings on here to never use friends and family and still the scammers win. He was not your friend and certainly not your family. Stop making it so easy for these scammers.

    Using Friends and Family to avoid fees is not honest.

    You get what you pay for.

    Nothing wrong with “friends and family “ so long as you are sending to a friend or family.
    I personally will no longer sell online, been scammed many times and as of late, two times in a row.
    Sad to say I will never trust any ham (stranger) because of past experiences. If it’s not local pick-up, it’s no sale, no deal.
    You’re all a bunch of crooks until proven otherwise.
