Thursday my FFL called and he received a package that he was not expecting....no advance notice from UPS as would be usual. He called me and said that a blue Anschutz arrived.

Friday I stopped by my PO, just before heading out to my FFL, and found a USPMO from him for the full amount. I would guess he just was not keeping track of personal business and could not find what he needed.

I mad no threats of any sort and was quietly loading my shotgun of information to send off to the authorities.

On the 1st of April he called me and said he would send the rifle again. I waited a couple days and he said he sent it but had no tracking number. I asked hif to file for a lost package and make an insurance claim. Since he had no tracking information, I would suppose he could not make a claim.

Now, guys.....what should I do with the Money Order

No brainer
He 'manned up' and sent it, you got your gun and you were cool
He needs to be paid for it, that was the deal

Return one or the other. The choice is yours. Glad it worked out in the end.

Not sure but I believe the MO would be made out in your name. You would need to deposit it and write him a check or a MO for the amount and send it back. If he gets the MO back, he possibly can't cash it. I went through this once and it was a major PIA. Never was able to cash the MO I got for someone and wasted the cash... but a different kind of transaction....

I'm afraid the poor guy was probably out of his mind and overwhelmed with the divorce. Of all the stressors in life, divorce is usually the top one, followed by death of a spouse.

Glad everything worked out, and now get that man his money back.

Look the rifle over carefully, decide if you are accepting it. Then send rifle or money order back.

One thing to consider: Is this a one-man operation, or does he have employees working for him? I knew a guy who worked in the shipping department of a large musical instrument retailer, and he was not the brightest bulb in the chandelier.

I could see him making a mistake like that -- possibly weighed the package, printed the shipping label, then had to take the rifle out to log the serial number and forgot to put it back in. Something like that.

If you are keeping the rifle.

I would contact him.

Thank him for the rifle and the refund.

Ask him how he would like you to handle the refund.

Good to see it worked out for you.

E.

Plus we also need pix of this elusive rifle.

These, right is right, annoying as this has been I'd cash the MO (see the first post above) and send him a check or MO right back. Heck of a lot to go through though.

Contact him and ask how he prefers the returned funds. Be kind and great full. He has his hands full.

I had a similar experience with a purchase a few months ago. Kept cool and it all worked out.

Advice above great. A demonstration of class is due. Call to let him know the drama is over. See what he wants you to do.

I’m glad it worked out.

By all means send him the money back, if you keep the rifle. I
IF you decide to cash the MO and send him a personal check or new MO wait 2 weeks for the present MO to clear the banks. The last thing you need is a bad MO bouncing and paying him twice with your funds.
Glad everything worked out.

On a funny note just sold a Winchester 75. Guy's paying cash and hands me a packet wrapped in a target. I cautiously open it to find $100 packets of $2 bills. Somehow he thought it was funny.

Presuming you have inspected the rifle and intend to keep it, the dark half of me would want to send his uncashed MO back and let him go through the kind of pain he put you through.

Decorum would prevail, though, and I'm sure I would follow the advice of the three posts previous to mine: ask him how he would like to receive his funds.

As ford8nr advises, be sure to let him know you will allow sufficient time for the MO to clear before you send any money. This will help avoid inadvertently stepping back into the poo, and set his expectations on the timing.

Glad it finally worked out!

If you decide to wait two weeks to see if the USPS Money Order clears make sure and let him know this, but I have never had a problem with a money order from the Post Office. They are like cash in hand. Even though he messed this deal up there is absolutely no point in dragging this out more than necessary. End it most Riki-Tik.
