Online Auction help!

Just a question for you guys. My brother won an auction off of yahoo for an Xbox 360 for around $120. Anyway the guy requested a money order, which we sent him. That was on the 8th, and 2 weeks later I haven't gotten anything in the mail, let alone an email from the guy. Anyway I was wondering if you think he ripped us off or something, and we should cancel payment on that money order, or contact yahoo to see if they could do something. Just wanted to hear what you guys thought, or if you had any similar experiances.

I won an aucton on Yahoo once and the guy tried to rip me off. If you can't get a hold of the seller, I would cancel the money order before you are ripped off.
However, it could only be that he was waiting for the money order before he shipped.

Normally, asking for only a money order is a sign that they are a scammer, and $120 is really cheap for an Xbox...

Try contacting him again. If that doesn't work, cancel the money order. Thats just my

There's the closed auction. We're probably going to cancel the money order and whatnot too.
