    First suggestion is we need more information before we can give any kind of informed response.
    What auction, do you have a link?
    What actions, if any, have you taken so far?

    If you have paid using Paypal you should be covered for thr whole amount, or by credit card sometimes you are covered, other than that contact the seller and then the website as there may also be buyer protection there.
    Try and ask for tracking information or what courier they are using.

    Failing that try and get their address and look it up on google, trace phone numbers etc and try and talk to the person who sold it.

    Does the "online auction" you speak of have anything to do with the WANTED ad you ran for a 5100?

    KI5GLO hasn't been back since posting. Fearing he was victim of a scammer, in which case he can describe the full situation and warn others not to fall for it. But hope I am wrong and he returns to say everything is good & it just took longer than he expected.

    I checked the mail today and the 5100 is still not here. They emailed me saying they sent it on October 15th via USPS. I ordered it over two weeks ago after I posted an ICOM 5100 wanted and they replied by email to me. I emailed them again on the 22nd and they responded saying it was sent via USPS.

    Who is "they"?
    Did you get a tracking number? If it was actually shipped by USPS there has to be a tracking number, if they refuse to provide one that is a red flag that it probably wasn't shipped.
