Hi all, I posted a thread a few days ago about somebody who frauded my dad out of $1300 on eBay and now I'm looking for a little bit more help. I have decided to write a letter directly to this person. I am trying to be as nice, and calm as I can not to piss them off and to totaly blow my chances of getting my dad's money back - but now I'm kind of stuck. Should I mention to them that I have filed a claim with the USPS for Mail Fraud and with the IC3.gov website, or should I leave that out of the letter and let those organizations contact her themselves? Here is what I have written so far. I'd appreciate any help that you all could give me - I'm not very good when it comes to writing serious letters!! I starred out her email address, just in case it's against tPF's TOS Dear Ms. Pence, I am contacting you today regarding eBay item number (8422444661) Krugerrand Gold Coin 1 Ounce Fine Gold Bullion Coin and (8422463716) Gold Krugerrand 1 One Ounce Bullion Coin South Africa that were purchased by my father, Robert Tunnicliff (eBay ID: Robertt4495). A total payment of $1363.60 was on May 20, 2006 to the PayPal account registered under the email address: *********@aol.com. According to the shipping information that was provided to my father and I on Paypal.com, the items were shipped on May 20 via United States Postal Service Priority Mail under Delivery Confirmation number 9125 1501 3471 1478 2228 47. As of July 20, 2006 these items have not yet been received. I have contacted the United States Postal Service to inquire about these items, and I received a letter stating that no packages have been shipped under that specific Delivery Confirmation number. ------------------------------- Now, after that I have no clue what else to write. Should I just stop here???
