Re: I think I've Been Scammed on Ebay

ebay has a 100% guarantee on things like this now. just escalate the case or try calling ebay directly. it might take up to 1 week for them to 'escalate' the issue, but they do guarantee you'll get your money back

Good for you for being so disciplined!!

I hope it doesn't take too long to get your $$ back.... dishonest people suck... that is the best way I can explain it.
I have a good friend who does that with CCs and they end up oweing her money, LOL.

Thanks

Yuck. I think you should easily be able to get your $$ back though, Paypal won't release the funds to them until you leave feedback so you should be able to just file a claim and immediately escalate with the transaction ID # and the info given to you.

Re: I think I've Been Scammed on Ebay

Thanks for all of your support, Mamas. And thanks so much for finding the Ebay customer service # for me, Lynn. I am planning on calling ebay tonight when my night minutes kick in. That's great that they are open until 10pm PST, that is 1am in EST,my time zone. Hopefully I can post good news soon.

I wouldn't worry too much, eBay is usually awesome if you're the buyer.

THAT is why I ALWAYS pay via CC even when using PP... I have the added protection that if PP doesn't help, my CC will.

I have had a few scammers on eBay, but so far I have always gotten my money back... once I bought some bootlegged DVDs & they guy had the gall to say I had to pay return shipping to return the FAKE DVDs. Good thing for me he was stupid & hit the PP button that I had already returned the DVDs... had they tried to make me pay the return shipping for 20 something DVDs I was going to tell them I was going to Disney & turn them BOTH in. I was also going to my CC company, but like I said, the guy goofed up because he didn't understand English (which was apparent in our email correspondence) & I got my money back w/out having to do all that. Lesson learned!

Another time I bought CDs from a lady on eBay & she closed up shop... the witch was using SHOWER CURTAIN liners in the dipes & I found out because I ripped one apart & saw the liner... the dead giveaway was the hole for the shower curtain rings at the top of the dipe!! I got my money back then too... I used a CC.

I hope you get your $$ back STAT!!
I had the same thing happen, except the seller and PayPal wanted me to send them back. I called PP and quoted USPS website that it was illegal to ship the DVD's. PP told me to destroy it and gave me my money back.
