    Sent VA3HRO 340 US for a Palstar AT1500 in June. Tracking shows never left the PO in Canada. Canada Post paid off the claim July 11 and he will not answer my emails. I fell for the please send as a gift/family via PayPal and I have nothing and he has my money and the insurance money. Beware of this guy.

    Is the FBI really interested in an alleged crime like this committed in another country? Is it a crime or a civil matter? If I'm reading it right, something went wrong at Canada Post, the seller made an insurance claim which has been paid but he has not passed the money on to the buyer.

    Is it possible for a member of the public to report something like that to Interpol?

    I guess a call to the seller's local police might at least be received but I suspect they would see it as a civil debt collection matter.

    1. The FBI goes to other countries, why not. We're paying their salary.

    2. There's always a first time, why not.

    3. That's a start.

    I can tell you what the FBI would say based on their response to a local fraud that took place here. They have more important things to investigate so you're on your own.
