I posted on here looking for Thrush aluminum side pipes and got a response from Harry that if I was still looking he had a pair that he would sell to fund another project. We emailed back and forth and he sent photos. I was comfortable that he was legit, so I sent him money. No response. Ask what's going on, and he tells me his wife is dying of cancer, but would ship soon. I told him I'm only 3 1/2 hours away I just come get them. He said No his son was shipping them for him. I would get tracking number soon. Next response from him was that it is going to cost more money than he has, please send money to cover shipping I said NO. He said sorry I lied, money is to help my sick wife. I told him I will prosecute, and he responded DO NOT TRY IT. I ask if that was a threat. He again said sorry not a threat and return my money when he has it.

MoneyGram that is where I should have said NO but that is on Me, it won't happen again. Lesson learned. The person I was dealing with name is Harry Gilliland and the money was sent to his wife Marian Gilliland, said they were from Portland TN.

I don't know what his user name is as he did not contact me thru any of the sites that I'm a member, my guess is to hide himself, he emailed me directly. So I posted the name he used and the email address that he contacted me with, Sorry but that's all the info. that I can give at this time. If thru the police investigation more info. becomes available I will be posting as it comes in. Thank You

Sorry for your bad experience. Unfortunately, bad guys all around the world. Hope you get proper support by police, their investigation and law enforcement in general.

I just wanted to chime in that MoneyGram is not bad by itself. although of course it poses a risk due to the transfer process. But it actually helped me to progress with a transaction with a fellow member here on the forum.

No you are correct that MoneyGram is not all bed. Going forward I will ask a lot more questions before sending any money any way. I will most likely upset some folks with the questions more for I will not be a very trusting person, and I don't like to be that way but I cannot afford to just give money away. So to any sellers out there I will say I'm sorry for this but it was caused by 1 JERK

I've had dealings with Doug from Alabama, and I can tell you that he is one straight forward, honest, generous guy. It annoys me to no end that someone took advantage of his trusting nature with this scam. Kind of makes us all leery of long distance deals, which is sad.

Jerks like that make me ashamed to think I belong to the same species.

That address is about 20 miles from me. I goggled 108 North st. and it is For Sale,(all kinds of real estate listings on this property) The Scum bag may not be living there at this time. If he gets back to you and he still has the pipes I could pick them up in Portland and Hold Or ship them to you. I Usually do not get mixed up in things like this But me and you (bigdouglas) know each other. Plus , I am near where that Bastard lives. Feel free to PM me if I can help, Gary..
