*BUT*

Im still unclear about one thing

IF you have no way of proving that you agreed upon $300 instead of $340, then you'll probably be on the line for $40.00 *IF* he decides to take you to court.

I'm not saying you're lying, i'm just talking about what you can prove. He can prove he shipped it first, then you decided to pay, so the ball is technically in his court, if he has something to show $340, and you have nothing to show $300...he might have you for $40.00 + court costs

(anything over $20.00 is eligible for small claims court)

Even if that it would be $300 plus $36 westerern union payment total of $336 so it would be $4

Well, the $36.00 is on you though, it wouldn't get added to the equation...they would tell you that Western Union as payment was your choice, you could have just mailed him a check, or sent it through something like PayPal... he would still have you for $40.00 if he wants to be a liar and you have no proof

If u have the message he sent you with your mothers address and yours. Take that as evidence that he's threatening your family.

I would hope this is all over more than 500 extra dollars or so. If not, this guy is pathetic.

Update. I just read the last page of posts. This guy is going through all of this over 40.00. Holy! That guy must be really hurting for money. Tell him to blow you. And leave it at that. Good luck though man. Merchants like that have to be stopped.

niteglock brings up a good point

You can prove that he's harrassing/stalking you ... use that against him. If he wants to play hard ball, bring a big bat.

In the end, even if you lose, you're only out a little time, $40.00 and some court costs...at least you don't have to sleep with one eye open thinking about police showing up at your door...


i'd still report him to armslite though

Well, if he sues you, he has to get a lawyer that is licensed to practice in your state and sue you in your county. He can't file where he lives and expect you to show up.

Yes, but it's still the matter of sending the money v.s. the money that he claims should have been sent.

For example, when you use a credit card at a retail store, they're actually paying about 1.8% - 3.2% of the transaction amount.

They don't tack that onto your bill directly (they might raise prices gradually to compensate) or at gun shows a lot you'll see them charge you 3% if you want to use a card, this is to cover the fee.

But they're up front about it, and not waiting until you leave the store to say HEY!!! You only paid 97% of your transaction!!

In the end, what it'll boil down to is that he claims you should have paid $340.00, but you only paid $300.00

So unless you have something to prove otherwise, he might (might, not a certainty) win against you in small claims court for $40.00

If you want my personal opinion, you have two choices:

Stick to your guns and don't pay him, risk him taking you to small claims court (honestly, I don't see him doing that, or he would threaten that, instead of calling the police, this guy is either a scam artist or a total moron...or both)

Or pay him.

If it were me, I'd refuse to give in. He agreed to $300, and i'd make him go through all that nonsense, building up all that negative karma, just to get $40.00

I'd rest easy man, no cops are gonna take you away or even show up. Screw this guy. Call his bluff.
