    So a few days ago I decided to send my Xbox 360 to RedEyedJesus for an RGH install. I paid, then he gave me the address to post to, and as I was taking my Xbox 360 to the post office I lost it somewhere along the way.

    So I tried asking for a refund due to this, and he replied with “I already ordered the matrix and the return shipping”. So I tried asking for a PARTIAL refund, but from then on he wouldn’t reply. His website is down too.

    How do I get my money back?

    if you got insurance, you could claim that the package never arrived. I don't know if they'd force a signature though. every time I've gotten insurance they didn't.

    Maybe it's just me but I don't think committing mail fraud is very smart, or even worth the little money you'd get vs the trouble it could potentially cause.

    To answer all your questions:
    1) I paid via bank transfer
    2) I didn’t get to post the package (which you’d know if you read my post properly). I’d lost it before I could even get to the post office.

    I should have bought from Ebay where they have a money back guarantee.

    I’m thinking of either contacting my bank or calling the police. Would either be a smart idea?

    You authorised the bank transfer, the bank doesn't care why. So long as it was you that did it and not someone who shouldn't have access you wont be covered. Pointless going to the police as mod chips and flash carts are illegal in the UK anyway, you may just incriminate yourself for trying to buy one.

    It's the risk you take with dodgy dealings. Unless he decides to be co-operative, there is pretty much nothing you can do.

    Do you have insurance which would cover losing the 360 in some way e.g. house insurance?

    No. Especially not since I still live with my parents.
    I just got it second hand in a terrible condition. I don’t care about my xbox 360 though I just care about my money.
