I once thought that when someone posted "Xboxbox" that it was a typo. Nope it's just a box, they were kind enough to include the manual however

24, I would beat him with the toy sword, some of those toys can still hurt LOL, or I would get him fraud :p

The bruise I got an my arm from a nerf sword can attest to that. Sometimes you really should heed those warnings.

Because that's really the only option that they have. He cheated them out of hundreds of dollars. If there are no punishments this time around, he could go out and do the exact same thing to others.

Sue for fraud. Penalties are higher for fraud than false advertising. Generally includes jail time :-)

OP's husband paid for an antique samurai sword. They didn't get what they agreed to pay for. Judging by OP's husband's reaction, he had already paid and should have gotten the sword. The guy scammed them out of $400. Doesn't matter if it was on Craigslist or not, it's still grounds for a lawsuit.

108- You misunderstood what I was saying. Ofcourse OP has a valid case but I doubt the scammer has anything OP would want if the scammer already spent the money. And he would most likely still take a loss if it goes to court. 125- I agree with all accept the last sentence. Noone deserves to have this happen but he shouldn't have sent the money first. He can just chalk it up as lesson learned.

Excuse me. I'm a prince in Nigeria who has recently inherited a large sum of money. If you are able to lend me $400 to remove the money from bank, I would have access to millions of dollars which I would then share with you. Please reply promptly so we may both enjoy my fortune.

Good luck claiming the money back. When you submit your claim, don't forget to add a message asking who the troll is now.

When you buy something on Craigslist, you usually have to use email, text, or phone calls. All of these can be handed over to the authorities for identification.

Why would he think it would be okay to spend that kind of money without having seen the item first? Unless it's from a reputable auction house, you really shouldn't buy things online without having at least seen pictures or certificates of authenticity first and even then you should be cautious. Your husband is a moron.

Usually you can tell when it's a scam on Craigslist. It's pretty obvious . Usually the scammers are not from the US which you can't really trace or ever get your money back. That's why if you ever buy something from someone with broken English on Craigslist DON'T DO IT.

Sorry, I am not in US, but there must b an authority you guys can contact ! That's a rip off, feel sorry for u guys !
