Question is.. is the mailing address he gives out real? Would make him rather stupid to give out all of his actual information.
This is actually a point in favor of everyone he's scammed. By taking payment through the mail (even if it's only $1, or an item of value which he offered to buy or take in trade) and delivering nothing, he's guilty of mail fraud, a federal offense. How many people has he ripped off? Dozens? By making a "federal case out of it", the victims can make this turd pay a huge fine or spend 10 years or more in prison.
The bells started going off when I asked him if he took Paypal and he said no because he doesn't have a bank account, and it would have to be a money order only.
Anyone remember the movie The Firm? I can't find the script online, so I'm not sure of the exact line but it was something like up to 10 years in prison and $10,000 fine for each count of mail fraud.
Well for him to get his money, stuff the address would have to exsist and he'd have to have some way of getting the mail if it was say someone else's address. Why you want his address? He gave it to me when I was going to do a deal with him before this all came out.
