That really sucks, I would call him up, you have his name and address
should be pretty easy to get ahold of him. After 2 calls I would just
drop it. We are talking $30.00 at the most here right, is it really
worth it for the headache? He may not know he has a virus on his
computer, there are many worm type virus that send them self out on
I would think that this is a rare thing that happens in our group ( I
Perhaps Paypal is a better option for this type of thing?

Subject: Screwed over by fellow Qlister...

I hate to air out my dirty laundry here but due to recent happenings I
I have no other choice...

This is the problem: About 4-5 months ago I contacted the list with the 
offering of 4 Audi Driver UrQ issues that I had for sale. The issues
quickly claimed in a matter of hours. I contacted the first 4 people who

wanted one and disclosed price, shipping addresses, etc. I was feeling 
pretty good about the list so I sent the magazines out before I actually

recieved any money. This turned out to be no problem except for one 

After I had recieved the 3 other payments promptly I began to wonder
the other one was. Days turned into weeks and still no money. I then 
contacted him and he wrote me back and was apologetic and claimed to
sent out a US postal money order and that he would get the receipt and
out what was going on. A couple of weeks passed and again, no reply. I
another email and asked what was going on? No answer again. Finally I
him an email telling him to please respond by August 17 or I would be
to call the Postal Inspector and have him look into possible mail fraud 
charges. This was something I did not want to do and I told the Qlister 
this. Once again no response...until today. Today I recieved an email
him that contained an attachment with a virus. Nice.

So my question is this: Have any of you had any problems like this
How do I get my money? Should I just write this off as a loss and never
trusting again? Is it not illegal to send someone a virus? This kinda
me sad that someone from this great list could be such a PITA...

By the way, if you want to know who the lister is, email me! If he keeps

messing with me I'll just post his name for everyone to see so they know
to buy from him...
