[ddots-l] Re: OT: stolen Kurzweil K2661 and accessories, please read!

Pay pal said that I am not eligible for their insurance because he didn't
put his address on the invoice.  However, I checked and the address that I
shipped to, and that he signed for the package at, is the exact same address
that is on his varified pay pal account!  When I called pay pal before this
sale, all they said was to make sure that I sent everything signed delivery,
which I did.

Don't waste your time with the FBI, they're not going to do anything for 
you. I'd really focus on trying to get an attorney for internet crime if 
possible. I can't imagine that paypal can be purged fully of the 
responsibility of not compensating you somehow.
