Be careful when buying off armslist. I bought a holosun 507c from a guy in Minnesota, $250. It has never showed up. I followed his purchasing info by using PayPal friends and family, not knowing that I COULDN'T FILE a claim against him. Don't use PayPal friends and family, zelle, or cash app. You won't be able to get money back.
His ad is still up. Do everyone else a favor and let them know about my buying mistake so they won't make the same. And you can flood him with questions about it. He told me it was s green dot, not red.
Thanks
Tommy

Sorry to hear about your deal.
I had a similar problem 10 years ago and got screwed for 20 bucks over a tech manual on CD for my then truck. I was summarily bounced off Ebay for complaining. Paypal not on your life will I use it. I will use my credit card to purchase sometimes, but NEVER on the Paypal app.
I had a property management company in Phoenix that I ended up in court with because of Paypal was not forwarding the money. I proved to them that I was making the payments and they would not believe me. So they just kept the fee from rents received. So off to small claims we went. They were really pissed when the judge awarded me damages and costs.

I have not purchased from Armslist in a long time. When I did it was within the state. Is there a way to leave feedback on the seller?

Many years ago, when laser rangefinders were a new item, I bought one off of ebay. Sent a MO but never received the item. Filed a formal complaint then did some more research and found there was actually a private bulletin board (pre-facebook) of people the guy had ripped off. We all filed fraud complaints with the local DA in TN where the guy was located and he was arrested, convicted and sent back to prison. The fun part was that one of the people he ripped off was a defense attorney in the local area who just happened to represent a bunch of inmates in the same prison. Suffice it to say, the little thief was visited by several bubbas every day and night. Real justice was served ... and served ... and served ...

One of the reasons stealbay is not on my list of places to shop. I ordered a CD for the truck I was driving and when the guy failed to ship it. I complained. Stealbay sided with him even though he had been paid. I filed with my bank and got the fund returned but the experience left me wanting.

You can file a mail fraud complaint with the USPS and call the local PD in the seller's area and file a fraud complaint. Many people fail to realize that these scams are felonies and should be reported as mail fraud to the USPS. Both the USPS and FBI investigate and prosecute these crimes.
