Ok, so I did something really stupid. I sold my previous computer (a Windows laptop) on eBay so I could start saving up to buy a new Powerbook. Well, it sold for nearly $1,000, and the buyer sent me a money order for $700, promising he'd send the rest of the money after he got paid that Friday. So, being the trusting idiot that I am, I shipped him the laptop anyway, thinking I'd receive the rest of the money the next day. Well, I got screwed. He never sent the other $300, and every time I have tried to contact him he blames the postal service, saying that they keep sending the envelope with his payment in it back to him. I dismissed this as BS, because his first payment arrived just fine. Then I requested his phone number and tried calling his house, but every time I do he's not in, so I end up leaving a message only for him to not return my calls. I know I'm at fault for being a moron and shipping the thing before I received payment in full, but isn't there anything I can do? The jerk still owes me money, and I was hoping if I notified eBay or put enough pressure on him, he'd have to send it. Has anyone been in a similar situation like this one? Can I do anything or am I just screwed out of $300?
