I am not positive on this:
I dont think you get much protection from USPS money orders. I think if it was lost you could get reimbursed, but if he cashed it already you might be SOL. But if he didnt cash it yet, maby it could become "lost".

Alot of credit card companies offer protection against this type of thing, so if you bought the money order with a credit card, maby you could go that route. But it could get tricky since you purchased a money order with it.

These stories make me like paypal even more, with their buyer protection.

damn! sorry to hear about whats going on bro.... that communication is un-exceptable! there is no reasone you should have to wait this long for your stuff! i have heard two other members that have complained about john mummie. i have also had a run in on the forum where he said he wanted to buy something, and then had no communication with the buyer. no money, no email, no nothin! then i got in touch with the seller to ask if the part was still available, and i purchased it myself! john was upset that i had "stolen" it from him. called me some names, and stayed upset for some time.... apparently the guy just doesnt know how to contact people during business transactions?

if he has already cashed the money order and its been this long, you might as well forget about getting your money back.........this type deal has happened to me. the best I could do was fill out a form to get a photo copy of the money order and where he signed and cashed it at.

well! allow him to defend himself first! haha... but.... there is a website that is used for reporting scams, bad deals, and people stealing on the internet... i have heard a number of times that they investigate ALL claims! the investigations are done by the FBI in conjuction with local law inforcement and other agancies. its realy serious stuff! but if you have no choice, and he doesnt make this right.... the link is below! nobody wants the FBI knocking on there door asking them why they stole money from someone on the internet! or even the local law inforcement! haha...
