    I had replied to a posting listing a Ameritron AL82 amplifier , I guess he seen that and replied to me with a offer on a AL82 amplifier . It seemed a fair offer nice pictures , so I purchased it threw paypal. Never heard another word from him , so I contacted payapl . The call is W4DJ which I got incorrect on the listing and wish I could correct. The email address he used was linked to the qrz page it is raymondfaircloth875@gmail.com.

    I don't see any recent for sale by him here on qrz so I presume it was elsewhere?

    Please tell us that you did NOT use "friends and family".

    Mod can and probably fix the title.

    So if you did NOT use "friends and family" then Paypal should get your money back. But when he asked you to use F&F I think I would have walked away. Hopefully he did not empty his Paypal account and he does not have it attached to an empty account. I don't know what Paypal does then if there is no money to get back to you. I just would not trust the guy because he wanted F&F.
    Good luck. I hope Paypal can get your money back.
