I won an Auction he had on Overstock.com for 7 morgan silver dollars and sent him a Certified cashier's check on 3/15/05 by Fedex.

On 3/24/05 he emailed me that my package was mailed by priority mail on 3/23/05 to the wrong bidder by his shipping person and that it was being reshipped to me and he gave me a usps tracking #. When I tracked it I found that the package went to Sylvania, Ga.

on 3/23/05 and then was delivered back to him on 3/26/05. I tried to email him and he no longer has this email address and when I try to call him he does not answer his phone.

I have contacted my local sheriff and also the sheriff in Grand Junction, Mi. and have also filed a complaint with the IFCC. I do not plan to let him get away with this, and am prepared to go to small claims court and will go to MI. if necessary.

Mike Socorro was sentenced on Monday, September 24, 2007 to 3 years in prison for robbing the Fifth Street Bank in South Haven, Michigan on 4/5/07. He was arrested on 4/6/07 in Nebraska.

After he serves the prison sentence, Socorro will be on a 3 year supervised release program and must pay his civil and criminal debts of approximately $11,000.00.

Now that he has a felony conviction on his record, if he winds up in trouble again, he'll face much stricter sentencing guidelines.

MIKE SOCORRO Still in the Hands of the FBI on Bank Robbery Charges

AUTHOR: Ray - (U.S.A.)

Mike Socorro is currently still being held by Federal Authorities on bank robbery charges. The FBI is working on the prosecution side, and will have a very solid case against Socorro when he finally goes to trial.

The U.S. Attorney in charge of Socorro's case is also investigating other charges that have been filed against him, including his on line activities fraud that he will probably be required to pay restituion on, which includes this case #051443.

If convicted of the bank robbery charges, which Socorro to date hasn't denied, he could be sentenced to federal prison along with paying restitution to his victims.

MIKE SOCORRO being held by federal authorities on bank robbery charges

AUTHOR: Ray - (U.S.A.)

According to the 7th Judical District Court in South Haven, Michigan, Mike Socorro is being held by federal authorities on bank robbery charges and is awaiting trial.

If Socorro is convicted of robbing the Fifth Third Bank in South Haven, MI, on 4/5/07, he could, according to law enforcement officials, get sent to prison for a few years. The fact that he did not use a gun will undoubtably help him at sentencing time.

The many other civil cases against Socorro, including this case #051443, at this point, are pretty insignificant, but according to the court will be dealt with at a later date.

Michael Socorro Arrested for bank robbery

AUTHOR: Vince - (U.S.A.)

The following is from WOODTV8 in Grand Rapids, MI news web site:

South Haven bank robber caught in Nebraska

Updated: April 6, 2007 10:00 PM EDT

SOUTH HAVEN -- A man who was wanted for allegedly robbing a South Haven bank was arrested in Nebraska Friday.

Authorities from the South Haven Police, the FBI and the Nebraska State Police coordinated to arrest Michael Soares Socorro near Grand Island, Nebraska.

According to police, Socorro walked into the Fifth Third Bank at 601 Phoenix Road just before noon Thursday. He gave a teller a note, demanding money, was given some cash and fled the scene.

Based on tips generated from media exposure, the 43-year-old Socorro, a Grand Junction native was taken in to custody Friday.

Socorro has been formally charged with Bank Robbery and is being held in the Hill County jail awaiting extradition to Michigan.

A link to the web page follows. It has a picture of Mr. Socorro allegedly robbing the bank.

I'm a disinterested onlooker in all of this. Just happen to be a neighbor of Mr. Socorro, so I'm somewhat aware of what's been going on.

MIKE SOCORRO in CONTEMPT of COURT --- AGAIN ! -- CASE # 51443

AUTHOR: Ray - (U.S.A.)

Mike Socorro failed to appear for a 9:00 A M April 2nd, 2007 show cause hearing as ordered by judge Arthur H. Clarke.

On April 3rd, The 7th District Court in South Haven, Michigan has reported they will issue a warrant for Socorro's arrest based on his failure to appear as ordered.

Socorro will be picked up, AGAIN, by the local authorities, brought to jail/court and AGAIN he will post bail that will be forwarded to the plaintiff. This will be another partial payment put toward the amount of the judgement awarded to the plaintiff by magistrate J. Michael James.

This is part of the continuing saga of Socorros fradulant Overstock.com internet auctions that date back to 3/13/05. He would post items on auction listings that he didn't have or own. Unsuspecting "lucky" winners would pay him and never receive anything!

More updates on this case will follow as they develop.

MIKE SOCORRO Case # 051443 Update From 7th Distridt Court, South Haven, MI

AUTHOR: Ray - (U.S.A.)

Mike Socorro appeared at the 7th District Court in south Haven, Michigan on Thursday, February 1st as he had been ordered to do by the judge last December. Socorro posted the $250.00 cash bail to the court that he couldn't come up with at that time.

The court is forwarding Socorro's $250.00 bail to the plaintiff as another partial payment for the judgement against him for the $1,773.00 that he stole from the plaintiff in an on line auction. This will be the second payment sent to the plaintiff for a total of $850.00 so far.

Unless Socorro steps up to the plate and pays the plaintiff the balance of the judgement, the amount will continue to increase due to the court allowing any fees payed by the plaintif for process servers to be added on to what Socorro owes.

The plaintiff will continue to have Socorro served and brought back into court for as many times as necessary to recover ALL the money owed.

Mike Socorro appeared at the 7th District Court in South Haven, Michigan on October 6th as he was ordered to by the judge. He had been directed to pay a $250.00 fine and give the court his employers name and address or spend 25 days in jail.

Socorro told the judge that he couldn't pay the fine because he doesn't have any money and couldn't give his employer name etc. because he doesn't have a job !!! Then he continued with a story that he was not well !!!

At this point the judge gave Socorro until February 1st, 2007 to comply or spend 25 days in jail. It will be just a matter of time before he wears out his welcome with the court and they will come down hard on him. THE BEAT GOES ON !!!

Mike Socorro kicked around by the court again-- CASE # 051443

AUTHOR: Ray - (U.S.A.)

Once again, Mike Socorro was a loser in the South Haven District Court on August 28th when Judge Arthur H. Clarke ruled against him. It was a rare occasion for Socorro to make an appearence in court when he was was served with a subpoena to appear.

As a continuation of this case, the judge has ordered Socorro to pay $250.00 and give the court the name and address of his employer on 10/6/06 or spend 25 days in jail. Interestingly enough, when Socorro was asked by the judge for the name and address of his employer, he could only remember the name but conveniently couldn't remember the address!

Again, he is playing games with the system, but is just prolonging the inevitable. The plaintiff was told by the court that the $250.00 will be forwarded to him as another partial payment and other information will be given to him in order to put leins on Socorros wages and or property in order to settle the case against him.

Socorro will eventially pay back all and more of the money he stole from the plaintiff in one of his fraudulant internet auctions.

SOCORRO IGNORES ANOTHER ORDER to APPEAR SUBPOENA --- CASE # 051443

AUTHOR: Ray - (U.S.A.)

Mike Socorro, once again is making a futile attempt to dance around the legal system and avoid the inevitable. He apparently is a slow learner. The last time he pulled the same maneuver, the sheriff picked him up on a bench warrant, he appeared before the court,the judge set his bond at $600.00 and the court sent the plaintitt a check in that amount. This covered a portion of the $1,800.00 plus that he stole from the plaintiff as a result of a fraudulant online auction.

Because Socorro was a no show on July 17, 2006, when he was subpoenaed to appear, a motion and order to show cause has been filed with the court. If he fails to appear for this, the judge will no doubt take the same action that he took the last time and Socorro will have to post another $600.00 bond that will then be forwarded to the plainiff as another partial payment.

Because this is a property crime, and not a violent crime, it rightfully takes a back seat to the more urgent issues that they must deal with. Law enforcement and the courts just don't have the time and or resources to spend on bafoons like Mike Socorro.

That being said, it is just taking a long time to prosecute Socorro but it IS happening and WILL continue. STAY TUNED IN FOR THE NEXT SOCORRO EPISODE.

MIKE SOCORRO INTERNET AUCTION FRAUD CASE # 051443 UPDATE

AUTHOR: Ray - (U.S.A.)

Mike Socorro posted $600.00 cash bail (bond) to The Seventh District Court-West in South Haven Michigan after he was last arrested on one of his outstanding warrants.

A check in the amount of $600.00 was issued by the court, mailed and received by the plaintiff. This is a partial payment applied to the balance on the judgment that Socorro will pay.

In a very short time, this process will repeat itself. Arrest warrant, arrest, jail, cash bond and another check in the mail from the court to the plaintiff.

Socorro probably figured if he played enough games and gave enough excuses that this case and others would just go away. WRONG, this is only the beginning! STAY TUNED IN FOR THE NEXT UPDATE!!

Case # 051021SC Mike Socorro arrested again

AUTHOR: Marilyn - (U.S.A.)

The above incident of arrest Ray is speaking of is related to our case. Mike Socorro failed to appear in court on March 20th, so a bench warrant was issued for his arrest. He posted a small bond of $350 which we received in the mail on April 19th as a partial payment of the money owed for work he contracted us to do. Surprisingly he appeared for another discovery hearing at the 7th District Court in South Haven, MI on May 22nd. Because he did not pay the balance of the debt owed to our business, and others, he was once again arrested. At this point he will need to post a bond to satisfy the remainder of the judgement or spend time in jail.

MAY 22, 2006 -- CASE # 051443 -- MIKE SOCORRO IS IN JAIL ! !

AUTHOR: Ray - (U.S.A.)

Mike Socorro suprisingly showed up at the Van Buren County Court House in South Haven, Michigan for a discovery hearing, not related to this case, and while he was there, he made it convenient for the sheriff's department to arrest him on the warrant from this case.

Socorro was handcuffed, hauled off to jail and will spend 50 days incarcerated unless he can scrounge up the $600.00 bail.

Due to the fact that this is a civil case, the bail is set low. As soon as the criminal case is set to proceed, Socorro will need to "tap" some of his "fantasy on line" racing fans to bail him out of jail!

The Van Buren County County Sheriff's Department along with the U.S. Postal Fraud Division is getting closer in putting their case together to prosecute Socorro on federal criminal charges. As soon as the case is ready, it will be presented to the federal district attorney for prosecution.

Mike Socorro has been ordered to appear for arraingment in court for internet auction fraud, case #051443, on Tuesday May 16, 2006. The 7th District court in South Haven Michigan has given Socorro until this time to come up with the money, or at least a partial, of what is owed the plaintif for merchandise not delivered in a pirated Overstock Auction Socorro had put up.

If Socorro should fail to appear at this arraignment, he will be picked up, arrested and put back in jail.

The Van Buren County Sheriff's Department and the United States Postal Fraud Division is still processing evidence to present to the federal district attorney so that Socorro can be prosecuted on criminal charges.

You have the wrong man!

AUTHOR: Bill - (U.S.A.)

Here is an email I got from Mike "Soco" Socorro.
It says: "How can this schmuck 65/66-yr old man Ray from Redwood City, California have so much FALSE knowledge and FALSE information when I am in a small town in Michigan?" "Mark and Brian are really feeding this old timer alot of bull, 11 months later and still no evidence, just made up hog wash and false accussasions. First of all, the computer hard drive they took was not mine, so it will be impossible to assume there is anything of mine on it, perhaps a few games, that's it, my wife used it to read her email and the images I got were from fellow task force members sending me reports on online auctions, and they stated "Why would someone bid on some old coins for $1,773.55 when they were only worth $125.00?" "This guy Ray Snider must be trying to get the coins for free, not paying for them, posting bogus bids like that fellow who bid $10,000,000 on a racing helmet on ebay."

Mike also stated: "That he was out of state when Ray Snider came to Michigan for small claims, and told the clerk he would not be able to make it." "That there is someone close to Ray Snider or perhaps someone in Southern California who knows more about this imposter running around on the internet impersonating Mike "Soco" Socorro because of his popularity and his involvement with the task force, which is an anti-crime website geared for victims and for victims of idenity theft, online auction fraud and other internet crimes."

I have seen both sides, and one thing is clear, it doesn't take 11-months to point the finger at someone, it is pretty obvious that there is no evidence against Mike "Soco" Socorro, that it was or will be planted by either the perp or the Van Buren Sheriff's office detective squad Mark McCulfor sending emails to Ray Snider and that other Scumbag slappywhite_67 who has been posting lies about Mike "Soco" Socorro since well before Jan of 2005. This does not add up. I have known Mike "Soco" Socorro for 5 years now, and I have seen other impersonate him on the Yahoo message boards, and I know he was a recent victim of idenity theft. Even before this ripoff report was started, this guy slappywhite_67 was posting Mike's home address, phone number, email address, social security number and his wife's name. If anyone broke the law it's that guy, not Mr. Socorro

MIKE SOCORRO ARRESTED on CONTEMPT of COURT WARRANT !!!

AUTHOR: Ray - (U.S.A.)

The Van Buren County Sheriff's Department has arrested Mike Socorro on an outstanding bench warrant that had been issued by the Michigan 7th District Court in South Haven.

Socorro was handcuffed, brought to jail, booked and sometime later he was able to post a bond and arrange for his release. He was directed to appear for arraignment on only the charges related to THIS specific warrant.

With more evidence mounting up every day on Socorro, eventually CRIMINAL PROSECUTION will procede against him. So far what he has faced is nothing compared to what he will go through when the Federal District Attorney is ready for him.

MIKE SOCORRO is CONSISTANT, HE STILL REFUSES to COMPLY WITH the COURT'S ORDERS !!!!!

AUTHOR: Ray - (U.S.A.)

Mike Socorro failed to appear at his April 3, 2006 court hearing in South Haven, Michigan, as ordered by Judge Arthur H. Clarke. This hearing was ordered for Socorro because he failed to show up on two previous occasions when subpoenaed by the court.

Socorro's failure to appear for this criminal contempt hearing has triggered a bench warrant for his arrest being issued by the court. Approximately two weeks ago, the same court issued another bench warrant for his arrest on a charge not related to this one.

With two bench warrants out on Socorro now, it becomes even more evident that the persistance by his victims is paying off. The plaintiffs,(victims), and the Van Buren County Michigan Sheriff's Department are committed to pursuing this theif and bringing him to justice.

The Van Buren County Sheriff's Department, along with their Computer Crimes Unit are working very closely with The U.S. Postal Mail Fraud Division on Socorro's case. As soon as they have all the evidence organized, the case will be presented for prosecution.

THE BOTTOM LINE----
MIKE SOCORRO is a THEIF and HE WILL EVENTUALLY PAY FOR HIS CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES!!!!

MIKE SOCORRO FAILS ONCE AGAIN TO COMPLY WITH COURT ORDER !!

AUTHOR: Ray - (U.S.A.)

On Monday, February 6th at 9:30 AM, Mike Socorro was subpoened in the name of the People of the State of Michigan to appear in court at 1007 E. Wells St. in South Haven, Michigan for a discovery hearing.

Socorro's failure to obey the court subpeona and appear at the required discovery hearing have subjected him to penalty for contempt of court and has started the proceedings for a motion and order to show cause.

The plaintiff has filed a motion with the court and Socorro will be ordered to appear before a judge. Failure to appear at this hearing will most likely result in the judge issueing a bench warrant for his arrest.

Socorro not only has this and other civil cases filed against him but criminal charges are in the works by The Van Buren County Sheriff"s Department and the U.S. Postal Fraud Division.

Message boards for the past 7 months, this is the person I believe is responsible for impersonating me online since 2001... I have not ripped anybody off, I am a member of a 5-man anti-internet crime task force call "The Task Force" our website can be see on the world wide web... and there you will see what I have been a victim of, and others as well.... nobody besides yourself Mr. Snider has pointed a finger at me claiming I victimized them, and I understand your motive for approaching me as the person who you claim has ripped you off in some way, but I assure you, I am not that man... I don't need to rip people off, and I have no motive to rip you off... I don't even know who you are... and I don't have any online business, except for my Skip Tracing business and my website design and marketing business. I have been the victim of idenity theft, impersonation, stolen mail, slander and harassment for the past 5 years. There was even someone who posted bogus ads on craigslist.com in my name, with an old cell phone number I had last year. Can you explain that Mr. Snider? Can you explain why this imposter has been harassing me for over 5 years, pretending to be me on several websites?

You let me if know who this person is, and we can both find justice, until then, you are barking up the wrong tree, and speaking of trees, as for you Mariyln and your disgruntled Landscaping company, I had arrangements with your husband for him to come back and cut these 2 trees down, after he asked me to spray paint them, he did not return and I never heard anything about it... however you may contact me by Phone anything to settle her little dispute, I never received anything from you either regarding the manner, as I am still waiting for your Landscapers to make good on our agreement... so until then perhaps I will start my own Rip Off Report, and hold you liable, since I was the one Ripped Off $8,000 for fencing that could not be put up because of those 2 trees!

Sincerely,

Mike "Soco" Socorro

Mike Socorro con artist, scams are not limited to the Internet

AUTHOR: Marilyn - (U.S.A.)

Ray, I hope you receive restitution for your troubles with Mike Socorro. I thought you might like to know that his scams are not limited to the Internet. He has ripped off a number of people in the community where he lives (bad idea). He has multilpe law suits against him in Van Buren County because he has contracted people to do work for him and not paid for it. If your bench warrant reaches him before ours-Kudos. He will be in jail soon enough. He is a pathological liar and con, his real name may not even be Mike Socorro, we have done a thorough background check to gain access to his social security #. FYI, if you can get it, you can file a lien on his State tax refund. Yeah Mike I know you are reading this....

SOCORRO FAILS to COMPLY with COURT ORDER

AUTHOR: Ray - (U.S.A.)

Mike Socorro has failed to follow the Van Buren County Michigan judges orders to pay damages of $1,863.55 to the plaintiff within the 21 days that the court allowed.

As a result of the defendent failing to pay, the court issued an order, signed by Judge Arthur Clark at the South Haven, MI court house, to seize any of Socorro's property, sell it and use the proceeds to pay his debt to the plaintiff.

On December 18, 2005, a Van Buren County Deputy Sheriff personally served Socorro with the judges order to seize his property, as allowed by law. A search of Socorro's Grand Junction Oak Street property was conducted by the deputy and the result was that their wasn't anything of any value worth seizing.

The next step for the plaintiff will be to file with the court for a Discovery Subpoena. Once signed by the judge, the defendent will be served with the order to appear in court and disclose personal information about himself such as bank account numbers, employment etc., to the court. Once the court has this information, action can be easier taken against the defendent.

Should the defendent, Mike Socorro, fail to appear at the Discovery hearing, the judge could put out a bench warrant for his arrest.

IMPERSONATIONS, FALSE REPORTINGS, COMPANY INFO REVEALED

AUTHOR: Gordon - (U.S.A.)

IT IS VERY WELL POSSIBLE THAT PEOPLE ARE IMPERSONATING EBAYERS AND OTHER AUCTION SITE SELLERS & BUYERS. I'VE SEEN IT JUST LAST WEEK. I ALSO KNOW FOR A FACT THAT SOMEONE FRAUDULENTLY PLACED A BID FOR 10,000,000.00 ON ROBBY GORDON'S HELMET ON EBAY, THEY THREW THE BID OUT. I AM ALSO AWARE OF IMPERSONATIONS DONE ONLINE, ON NASCAR MESSAGE BOARDS BY SOMEONE WHO CALLS THEMSELF SLAPPYWHITE, AND OTHERS WHO POST MESSAGES WITH SIMILIAR WRITING STYLES. IN THIS DAY IN AGE THERE IS MORE IDENITY THEFT AND IMPERSONATIONS GOING AROUND THAN MOST PEOPLE THINK. FALSE REPORTINGS ARE ALSO A COMMON ACT, SOME WITH GOOD INTENTIONS, MOST WITH BAD INTENTIONS, FROM WHAT I SEE HERE THERE A SIMPLE SOLUTION TO ALL THESE ALLEGATIONS AND ASSUMTIONS. I HAVE INSIDE COMPANY INFORMATION TO BELIEVE THAT RAY SNIDER WENT TO MICHIGAN TO TRY TO GET $3,000.00 TO PAY FOR HIS PLANE TICKET AND LOSS FUNDS, IF THERE WAS EVER SUCH A THING WE HAVE NOT SEEN PROOF OF IT, JUST WORDS TYPED FROM A KEYBOARD POSTED ONLINE, NOTHING MORE. ALSO IT IS KNOWN THAT JOEL49 WAS BEHIND THE CRAIGSLIST POSTED ADS, THAT WERE DONE FRAUDULENTLY BUT RAY SNIDER KNEW ABOUT IT, LAUGHING ABOUT IT THEN TURNING AROUND AND DENYING IT. ANYONE CAN CREATE A FRAUDULENT ID AND SEND FRAUDULENT EMAILS, TYPE UP POSTINGS AND COPY & PASTE, I SEE IT EVERYDAY. I HAVE COMPANY INFORMATION IN SUPPORT OF ONLINE RACER & FORMER FEDERAL OFFICER MIKE "SOCO" SOCORRO, WHO HAS BEEN WORKING UNCOVER IN A ANTI-IDENITY THEFT TASK FORCE FOCUSING ON FRAUDULENT INTERNET ACTIVITY DONE ON MESSAGE BOARDS, CHAT ROOMS AND ONLINE AUCTIONS. HE WAS IN THE PROCESS AND STILL IS HELPING LAW ENFORCEMENT IN ASSISTING THEM WITH PERSONAL TESTIMONY IN DIRECT CONTACT WITH THESE PEOPLE. IT IS WELL KNOWN THAT SOCORRO WAS A RECENT STATE LOTTERY WINNER IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA IN 2001 AND MICHIGAN IN 2005, SINCE THEN HE HAS BEEN WATCHING SCAM AFTER SCAM TRYING TO GET HIS MONEY, AND WATCHING OTHERS CON HIM INTO GIVING AWAY FREE ONLINE AUCTION ITEMS(NON PAYMENT). THERE IS MUCH MORE TO THIS STORY THAN MOST OF YOU HAVE SEEN OR HEARD, UNTIL JUSTICE IS DONE IN THIS CASE, PLEASE REFRAIN FROM DOING ANY MORE DAMAGE TO THIS CASE, SINCE DETECTIVES ARE AT A POINT OF EMBARASSMENT. THEY HAVE BEEN MISLED FOR 5 TO 6 MONTHS NOW, AND ARE FOCUSING THEIR INVESTIGATION ON THE WRONG PERSON(S). FURTHERMORE, LAWYERS ARE IN LINE TO TAKE THIS TO THE SUPREME COURT SINCE ONE OF THEIR OWN IS INVOLVED, ALSO LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENTS.

YIKES! A 4% POSITIVE RATE AND A -22.7 COMMERCE RATING?!?!?!?!?!?

AUTHOR: Sherri - (U.S.A.)

The Overstock rating profile is very telling. I am seeing now that you are far from being the only one scammed. If someone is legit and there is a question about the item, why refuse escrow? I can see a seller having a dispute or problem with one or two buyers, as you can't please everyone. But his ratings look like he didn't please ANYONE.

Good luck with this, Ray!

EXCELLENT and ACCURATE COMMENTS SUBMITTED by SHERRI of PIEDMONT, CA

AUTHOR: Ray - (U.S.A.)

As mentioned in a previous comment that I left on this site, Craigslist has said they know nothing about any ads placed by me and further more have absolutely no records of any dealings with me.

The false statements above made by Mike Socorro and/or his associates are the only way they can attempt to intimidate me into dropping my charges against him for the internet and mail fraud he has committed on so many innocent victims.

Myself and some of Mike Socorro's other victims are commited to spend as much time and resources as necessary to bring him to justice.

As of this date, at least six of Socorro,s other victims have stepped forward and filed charges against him for internet and mail fraud. Anyone that has been victimized by Mike Socorro is encourged to contact one of the lead investigators working on the case at the Van Buren County Michigan Sheriff,s Department. Detective Gabriel Rought at (269) 427-8711 And Detective Mark McCulfor at (269) 657-7711 x297.

Anyone interested in checking out Mike Socorro's closed auctions on overstock.com to see the ratings/comments that his victims wrote after they had been robbed by him, can access this interesting information as follows----(1) Enter overstock.com (2) click on auctions (3) click on search (4) type in mikesoco111 in the by seller box (5) put the "dot" on search only, closed auctions (6) click on search (7) click on user ID mikesoco111 (8) click on ratings/comments on mikesoco111's home page (left side of screen). Then you can actually see what he did to a lot of innocent people !

By the the time overstock auctions caught up with Mike Socorro (mikesoco111),disabled him and finally closed down his auctions, it was to late for the people that had paid for the auctions and lost thousands of dollars. Overstock auctions offered their appologies to the victims but would not take any responsibility. Overstock issued a statement that their security department is looking in to the case.

SOMEWHERE THE TRUTH IS IN THE MIDDLE...

But I do know that craigslist would NEVER send out an email such as the one posted above. If someone had a complaint, the only information given would be action is being taken.

Jason- In answer to your questions, yes a cashier's check, money order or Personal check were the only forms of payment Mike would accept. I did not like this, but he would not take PayPal and BidPay will only accept up to $1000.00 so that was not an option. I asked him if he would let me use and pay using Escrow.com but he said no.

I have always used PayPal in my purchases and have never had a problem like this. I do have a Fed Ex Tracking Number which I have turned over to the Authorities, and yes I made a big mistake sending a cahiers check to Mike Socorro. This has been a very expensive and painful lesson. Ray

You state that you sent it, but I am curious, was that the only method that Mike would accept? Normally things can be worked out for other methods of payment which provide more protection to the bidder.
