Seller posted PST for sale, I have meet great people on this site, unfortunately this fella is on here and he is a piece of work. I am out the money, but hope that I can keep others from making the same mistake I have. I would highly recommend staying away from this guy.

Hate you got burned my friend. Mike is as good as it gets. You can not do business with a better guy on his end.

Call the local PD or Sheriffs office and see if they can rouse this loser. Not sure they will do anything but it may be worth a try.

I to have met so many great people on this sight. They tried to scam me
on other sites I have posted (armslist, gunlistings.org, etc) and the common
link was a gmail.com account. I'm not saying all gmail accounts are bad
at all. However, quite a few originate on them. I just had 2 yesterday
on Armslist and both were from gmail accounts. I'm at the point now of
not answering any emails from gmail.com.

I've only had a gmail account for the last 8 years so not sure you should judge by that since it's the most used service for email there is.

Right there you hit it. The most wide used and the most susceptible to scammers.
I just had another scammer today on Armslist and low and behold it came from
a gmail account. As I stated before, which you must have missed, I'm not
saying they are all bad. The bigger the email accounts the more chance of scammers
trying to take your hard earned money.

I understand. Was just making sure you weren't painting with too broad a brush since I'm sure there are millions of reputable sellers with gmail accounts, since there are over a billion gmail accounts total. I would hope someone wouldn't discount me as a viable seller just because I had a gmail account.

Do other email hosts have some way of weeding out scammers? I have had a gmail account for around 10 years.
No offence but I've never seen you post in any other section but the classifieds which raises my suspicion on for sale adds.

So now I am a scammer also. Listen pal, I sold a lot of stuff on this site and several
others and I always delivered what I said I had. But it is ok for you and others to paint
me with a narrow brush when it comes to my classifieds. I will say this though,
since I have been on this site I have several of you so called old salts insert your
**** opinions where it didn't belong. One more thing, you high and righteous
cult, I have never encountered as many lowballers as I have on this site.
I still stick to my original claim that the majority of scammers use gmail
accounts.

Whoa partner! I never said you were a scammer. I said that people that only post in the classifieds and don't contribute elsewhere make me suspicious of buying from them. You took what I said way out in far left field!
Other things that make me suspicious is people that won't provide pictures or supply stock photo's, won't provide a driver's license on bigger purchases, new members or members with low post count.
