you DO realize when shit like that happens you contact the local police and your money will be refunded AND with such a large amount the seller risks jail time
Untrue. Craigslist specifically says to deal with the seller in person and not to have anything mailed (for this exact reason). OP disregarded their warning and paid heavily for it. It's unfortunate but her own fault. Hopefully she'll know to deal in person from now on.
This is why calling the police to solve your problem is better than pointless payback via violence. That's for after you get a refund ;)
Have you ever come across an Internet troll that was so fucking annoying and you wanted to absolutely beat the shit out of him? That's what scammers are like. Those guys deserve a nice beating. Personally, calling the cops wouldn't have satisfied me enough. When someone fucks with me like that, I would beat his ass too.
i do hate the fact that douchebags are protected by the law like the rest of us
This is why I truly think that duels should be legal. To death or first blood, with obvious rules and referees/witnesses to watch and intervene if needed. More people would be trained in self defense and less people would be inclined to mess with others. I've actually put a lot of thought into something like this.
That's an ass beating well do. The guy deserves it, but you guys should have got your money back first.
I agree. Call the cops, show them proof you bought the phone, then show them what the guy gave you. the guy will land in jail for fraud.
You don't sign away liability of fraud. If the ad read an iPhone and not a photo of an iPhone then it is reasonable to assume it was an actual phone based on the verbiage and cost. It's fraud when you don't send the merchandise purchased. If it was sent postal mail it's mail fraud as well. No waiver can excuse you from the law, regardless of what the waiver reads. If the agreement isn't written correctly one non-enforceable clause can invalidate the whole contract too. Depending on where this took place the seller could be looking at 18 months on the fraud and 5 years for mail fraud.
No, you don't HAVE to bail your seemingly psychopathic husband out of jail. That would be as stupid as spending big money on something listed by some random guy on a place like Craigslist. Oh, wait...
