    Well here is the situation a guy contacted me on AIM and said his friend on MR (here) told him to contact me about selling his dual powermac
    once i talked to him for a while we agreed on a trade my power mac 500 + $700 for his dual powermac
    so we were both suposed to ship and trade tracking # the next night
    so i shipped the PM with the money and when i talked to him he said he shipped it prority mail (no tracking #)
    so i gave him the # for the stuff i shipped
    and now i havent heard from him since then and that was Tuesday
    he said it would take 5-7 days to arrive so i should expect it no later than Tuesday this week, but i am worried that i have had no contact with him.
    Any sugestions??

    Did he say what his friend's MacRumors name was? Could you contact the friend?

    don't do trades with people you just met on AIM, for future reference.

    I agree. If he gave you his friends MR name, I would look it up to see if it is really a member or not.

    Not trying to be mean but can you help me get some money out of Nigeria?

    In all honesty I hope everything works out for you and that my faith in humanity will not take another hit.
