Thanks for all the responses!
Wow I had no idea he had ripped off so many of us, this is really not right. I believe he is a good guy, but I feel that he should not be allowed to operate on this forum anymore.
You are right and the money should not have been spent, it shouldn't have been placed in escrow. This is extremely unprofessional and honestly theft among a lot of us.
I can understand his condition and I do feel bad for him, however this was a business transaction.
I'm in Florida so it would be quite hard to do anything about it... I would honestly consider legal action if possible considering I'm finding out there are numerous members here that have been ripped off.
It really sucks overall.
