That's awesome assuming you actually get what you're supposed to. I was worried because he sells on Craigslist and I figured he'd try to get rid of your Xbox there and never send you a thing.

Keep us updated. Frankly I'm surprised the police actually did something about it and apparently immediately. I'm impressed. Many thanks to them.

Edit: He told the police he sent it out Monday? Hopefully he sent you what he was supposed to (assuming he did actually send anything). I want to know if he actually sent it Monday or if he'll send it now that he knows police are involved.

They must've been bored that day.

Thinking about it I don't believe for a second that he did send it on Monday. You didn't even make this thread until Tuesday. Had he actually sent it Monday he would have told you and not made up some bs about a cousin and such.

Oh well if nothing else hopefully the police involvement will push him to send you what he owes you.

Well the package has until thursday to get here before the cops come after him :)

Good to hear that the suggestion to contact the police seemed like the catalyst to get this dealt with.

Looks like things will eventually work out, OP. Keep us updated on how it goes, assuming you don't get a box of rocks.

And unfortunately, giveaways can't get positive feedback, sorry.

What if i made the contest that you have to add me on xbox live or PSN to be able to receive the gift. Would it be a trade then? lol

And as promised, a giveaway. The giveaway is a 1yr membership of xbox live. I know some of you dont have xbox. and im sorry. but its all I have and if you dont have one you can give it away or sell it. iDC. And since im lazy, the person to go on each page of this forum and give me every single display name of each person who said "i hope this works out" or just gave advice or information or was supportive in any way will get a second name in the raffle (two chances) Itll be a randomized name picking out of a random name picked online or written and put in a hat. Once i get the names I will probably do the contest on Monday or Tuesday. Good luck :D Whoever decides to get each name. Post it in this thread after 4PM tomorrow, posting it any time before 4PM EST will be disqualified for the second chance, you will still get a first though if you were supportive. Good luck and happy hunger games. Lolz

All positive posts have to be before this one. Sorry


Because I was bored at work here is a list of names of everyone who isn't a mod that posted in this thread before you announced the give away. You can go through and edit the list if you feel like they weren't helpful etc.

That's awesome that the Police helped you... and were so quick about it.

I'm sure it is a toss up but I bet a lot of precincts would chalk it up as a "lesson learned" but if you played the mail fraud angle maybe that got their attention.

Anyways I'm surprised they took care of it right then and there. Maybe this isn't the first complaint against that household and the officers got some satisfaction out of being able to hassle them late at night?

Anyways really hope this has a happy ending!

Hey man, its me, just looking for information on where my ps3 is before i open a case for the courts

This is the conversation his "cousin" had with me.


I would suggest you remove your contact information and name from your post., although I know you said you want to keep it up in case he finds this thread. Although the mail fraud/theft is a federal offense and bad enough, I checked to see if he could have violated any SC state laws particularly grand theft. Unfortunately, according to SC law, it appears that the value of the goods stolen has to be over $2,000 for it to constitute felony grand theft/larceny. But you could say that the rarity of the console increases the value to over $2,000, if he doesn't actually deliver and you have to call the Easley officers again. He could definitely be popped for receipt/possession of stolen property.

SECTION 16-13-30. Petit larceny; grand larceny.

(A) Simple larceny of any article of goods, choses in action, bank bills, bills receivable, chattels, or other article of personalty of which by law larceny may be committed, or of any fixture, part, or product of the soil severed from the soil by an unlawful act, or has a value of two thousand dollars or less, is petit larceny, a misdemeanor, triable in the magistrates court or municipal court, notwithstanding the provisions of Sections 22-3-540, 22-3-545, 22-3-550, and 14-25-65. Upon conviction, the person must be fined not more than one thousand dollars, or imprisoned not more than thirty days.

(B) Larceny of goods, chattels, instruments, or other personalty valued in excess of two thousand dollars is grand larceny. Upon conviction, the person is guilty of a felony and must be fined in the discretion of the court or imprisoned not more than:

(1) five years if the value of the personalty is more than two thousand dollars but less than ten thousand dollars;

(2) ten years if the value of the personalty is ten thousand dollars or more.

(B) A person who violates the provisions of this section is guilty of a:

(1) misdemeanor triable in magistrates court or municipal court, notwithstanding the provisions of Sections 22-3-540, 22-3-545, 22-3-550, and 14-25-65, if the value of the property is two thousand dollars or less. Upon conviction, the person must be fined not more than one thousand dollars, or imprisoned not more than thirty days;

(2) felony and, upon conviction, must be fined not less than one thousand dollars or imprisoned not more than five years if the value of the property is more than two thousand dollars but less than ten thousand dollars;

And he didn't give the police any tracking number? I'd wager he was lying to the cops; just attempting to delay/buy more time. Provided that is the case, when you call the police next, I would recommend you request they get any sort of evidence that he actually sent something, anything, to you - a receipt from the post office/UPS...preferably a valid tracking number.

He tried to scam the shit out of you and only told the cops he sent it out so he wouldn't get into trouble. I'll bet you dollars to donuts the postmark will be the day he spoke to the cops or the very next.

Now to update my comment on that youtube page, some of his friends should know who they are dealing with.


New update ladies and gentlemen. He never had a ps3. he never shipped it monday. He contacted me on facebook and told me. He said, I just ordered you a 500Gb bundle online and it should be sent out monday, ill get you a tracking number then. After that he got offline. I messaged back saying thats fine but if i dont have proof that its coming by thursday i have to take legal action.

Okay, this guy definitely needs to be banned. I hope the mods take action.

This whole situation is just crazy; but hey it sounds like your getting a better PS3 than originally agreed on! :D

I can't believe he lied to the cops though and said he sent it out. Basically he just admitted to attempting to scam you :roll::lol:
