Anyone near Akron?


Jedi Knight
Need some advice here. After much discussion regarding the T9 conversion in a 1500 spridget. I decided to go for it. Searched and searched and thought I found a good one on Craigslist.Would rather do a deal in person but Akron OH and Aiken SC are pretty far apart. At anyrate through multiple emails the seller and I struck an accord and off the deal went. To make a long story short, I sent the money order for the purchase price and now I have no response from seller. I have a name and address, and there were things like pictures and addresses exchanged so I pretty sure it started ligit. At anyrate, I have an address and was wondering if there was anyone in the area that could tell me if that was a true residence or something else. It wasn't a ton of money but getting burned stings a little. I've given him a month to respond but obviously at that point this isn't going to happen. I never got the guys phone number but reverse lookup doesn't work. Any advice, get over it an move on or should I continue to obsess..lol I don't think there is any way to recover a money order but I might be able to file a complaint and the post office?

Hopefully someone near Akron can take a look for you. If that doesn't happen, try this. Go to Google maps, plug in the address, go to satellite and zoom in. You should get a good enough image to tell if it is a residence, gas station, zoo, vacant lot, ..........
Good Luck
