That sucks! So, you sent him money instead of doing a face to face?

Craigslist is not very popular in Germany, did you send the money to Amman? You're better off with the adverts on Thomann.

I don't think you can do much about it, but the bank has his private data. You have to go report it to the Jordanian police. Not a very good deal for a guitar that costs 230€ new either.

What is eBay Craigslist? You mean ebay Kleinanzeigen? I've made some cool deals with ebay Kleinanzeigen - but never ever without face-to-face...

Like 10 years ago I sold a Line 6 DL4 on eBay, did international shipping and was amazed when it sold for $230 to some guy in Italy. Long story short I found out later that Italy has some strange customs rule about musical instruments and it must have been confiscated because the guy never got it. Lost my money and the pedal.

Other than that, I've done some dumb trades but not been really burned like that since.
