That's fair enough but if I had recommended another person I would feel some sort of responsibility. Has jacksparrow given you any assurance that this guy was trustworthy or was it just someone he knew that was selling the stuff?

You could try the small claims court-you have proof of payment and no receipt for goods so you have a good chance of getting your money back and he may even settle with goods/cash rather than go to court.

worth a try, police really wont bother unless its in the thousands but then again all they can do is log it. Do you know the guys address?
you could could try a small claims but again for such little money it will get ignored :(
How far does me live, see who on .org is near him and send the heavy's in!

First things first is the police.. They will not do anything but it will be on record. if they have had few issues with the same guy this my lead to an arrest so police first.

secondly, Small claims court.. take to the guy that recommended the guy to you to offer you more details about the guy. its a shame we live in such a society where he can do that and sleep well at night.

Next time, PLEASE use PAYPAL. The banks are Useless as they are tired around rules and laws. The police.. what can I say, Typical.

Just wish you luck.

It's why I always pay for something with Paypal Good's payment service, to get the buyer protection if the item is quite valuable. Pay the extra bit more to cover PayPal's charges, but atleast if something like this happens, you're completely covered.

But I know that's not much use to you now, but as what's been said maybe a small claims court is the best route.

tbh, you will end up putting it down to experience.the sums are too small for police,and borderline for the hassle of court.the guy,this jacksparrow on here,should sort it for you really,if he is a friend of the guy you bought the bits off.he introduced him into the deal,and cannot just wash his hands of it. he has no excuse not to,for his own credibility on these forums alone,without the fact of doing the right thing for you.
