    well its pretty simple. i sent a money order to mellow boy for a distributor back in early december. he has given me a ton of lame excuses on why he has not sent it out. now for the past 2 weeks he doenst respond to my emails anymore. so i gave him one last one that said either send me my money or a tracking number or i will report you. well still no response. so im just telling all of you to watch out for him. :angry:

    Here's what you need to do... compile every email and IM convo that went on between you two (you did save all that, right?), then you need to contact the state police in his county and present it to them. Interstate mail fraud is a federal offese. They *WILL* pursue it.

    Maybe email him with what you're going to do and what the repercussions will be. I assume you have his mailing address and phone #?

    hey I mean, 35 dollars sucks and all. but look at it this way, you still have another 35 in your pocket....Don't worry about it. I'm not insensitive and yes someone has taken money from me before but here's what really put things into perspective for me.
    Rewind to business 100 class yesterday. We split into groups and are discussing foreign business aspects such as social, political, technology. Our group was assigned technology, and everyone was saying things along the lines of "their computers and cell phones aren't up to speed with us". Sounded pretty simple until one short quiet guy said "In my country people don't have electricity."
