    Joe N8YAC of Lorain Ohio has not paid for item I sold him. I have left many message and no return messages.
    I am now filing mail scam with the Post Office over this transaction. And next if I hear nothing to file small claims action with the court in his county in Ohio.
    I have never had this happen to me in a Hobby related item and have sold many stuff both in Ham Radio & Radio Controlled and everyone has came thru with payment.

    Thanks 73 de KA1CVv

    A little more detail about the transaction would be helpful and did you actually ship something to him before receiving payment?

    I must be missing something. I read you sold this person an item. You are waiting on payment to arrive but he is not sending payment. So how does that anything to do with the post office to where you can file mail fraud?
    The only thing that might rise to mail fraud is if you sent him the item before he paid which no one would send an item to a stranger before he pays.

    So what am I missing that makes it mail fraud?

    EDIT: You said, "file small claims action with the court in his county in Ohio." If you do that are you not going to have to go to Ohio to be in court? That sounds expensive.
    Seems like you should just forget the guy and advertise your item again and sell it to someone that will pay you.
    Just my opinion.

    Same here . . . Did you send the item. If there was a mail fraud every time someone said "check is in the mail" no one would be able to deliver mail. They would all be investigating mail fraud.

    It is interesting that @KA1CVV does not come around anymore!
    But if I sold an item and the buyer did not pay I guess I would not get on here and whine. I would just sell it to someone else. Who knows what happened to the guy that was "going" to buy it. He might be in the hospital or he might have even died. Am I wrong in my thinking?

    There's some irony there!
