I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

Was this person also located in Illinois? In other words, was this package allegedly seized in Illinois?

What exactly was shown in the picture he sent you?

Alright the guy was from tescoma Washington. And I’m not honestly sure where it was seized st , but he sent me a picture on Snapchat the next day and on that is said “law enforcement has seized your package” and like.. I’m freaking out pretty bad

Did he have your name and address, or was the package being sent elsewhere?

Had my moms name on the package but the adress of the house I’m currently living in.

The picture says seized by law enforcement it doesn’t let me know where ..
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
He also didn’t send me the tracking info so is there anyway I could just be getting set up..?

Yes, that is my inclination and is where I was heading with my line of questions for you.

There are several similar scams that are prevalent.

If the package was seized this person would also be very much at risk of criminal prosecution, even more so than yourself.

It's more likely that this is a scam, this person most likely took your money knowing this wasn't a sale that you could contact the police about, with no intention of ever mailing a packed, but just sending the photo that you've received.

It doesn't appear that you have anything to worry about in regards ***** ***** prosecution.

That being said, you should refrain from making similar purchases in the future.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions about this. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
