Luckily, I don't have a dog in this fight, but I did use that cyber crimes thing a couple times in the past. Nothing ever came of it. Twice were years and years ago for sub $100 claims. One was for over $600 and had proof that the guy had also sold the same guns to two other buyers and was talking to yet another one after collecting my money. I was told that proving fraud is damn near impossible. You have to prove that the seller had all intentions of never selling you the item when taking your money. If I didn't have that proof with three other people involved, how the hell does fraud ever stick?

Good luck guys. I backed out of this right after it came up. I felt horrible backing out on him, but now I don't regret it at all.
