U didn't make him pay first?? Wow, that really sucks. Was he through here? U should have worked out a plan, like half up front or at least 90% up front and then the rest. sucks. Hopefully maybe he just had money problems and is sending it soon. Good Luck.

First the SVTF scam and now someone isn't paying you.

This would be eating away my trust with strangers.

Hope things work out for you. You seem to be a good guy that seems to be having some bad luck these days.

I hope you get your money. If not, find him and take it out of his @$$. I know it's kinda far to go, but maybe you can find someone closer to do it for you. Good Luck.
