I agree, not mail fraud, just a bad mistake.
Honestly, the only thing I could see if he never returns it is filing a civil suit.
Of course, here in Florida filing a civil suit costs $250, so... that seems fairly pointless.
I would definitely beg the guy with every sad story I have, because if I lost $350 bucks refunding the other guy, I'd be done for.
If it's never resolved in your favor, I do believe that you would be able to deduct this bad transaction from your income taxes depending on your personal/business tax situation.
