did you pay by credit card or anything like that - cos they usually have fraud protection... I think paypal does to to a degree but im not entirely sure on that.

sorry to hear you lost the money

I have a hard time trusting people. Yours is a good reason not to change my feelings about strangers.
I'm like you Deacon when it comes to trusting complete strangers. I'm one of those guys that will pay extra $ so I can avoid situations like this. Plus, I need instant gratification. Sorry to hear about your lost Turbo but $485 is awful cheap for a moped even for a chinese one.
Just remember, every race has some dishonest people.

Can we have the actual details? A good deal found you? Your cpu was "intercepted"? How do you know it was a black guy?

I'll go along with that... they come in all shapes, sizes and colors. Personally I can build a heck of a motor bike for four hundred bucks. I wouldn't buy a moped anyway.
