$800 too low amount for the police--wow they really need to get to work on internet fraud as lots of 800's='s lots of money. Never pay by money order, cash or wire...at least paypal has some kind of insurance against this. Try and find out out more about the seller and warn other forums/ebay about him/her.

I am sorry to hear about this. Having a bit of a scare recently with an online purchase myself, I think I know how you feel. Just as another note to "what not to do". Same as you should not send MO for payment, I would suggest never accepting MO as payment either. They can be forged, accepted by your bank, cashed in by you with money in your hands... and then 2-3 weeks later when it is discovered it is a forge the buyer is free and clear with the goods and your bank wants their money back.

the reason they said thats a low amount is because by law if itsunder 5000 its a summary/hybrid offence the only way u can solve that is in a civil court. if the amount was over 5000 its an inditable offence and they can charge him with that. lol so send him 4201 dollars and then call the cops lol get him that way .
