    Exclamation Ebay problem - HELP!

    Bought an item off ebay on monday for £300. I bought the item from a seller with 98% feedback, and has sold nearly 200 similar items in the past. I paid for it by debit card. It was supposed to be delivered on friday latest, but i am still waiting, so i decided to ring the delivery company myself to see whats happened, quoting the tracking number the seller gave me. They have no record of the item at all! Now the guy is not answering my phone calls, texts, or emails.

    Where do i stand on this? I am starting to get both worried and severly pissed off, because £300 is a hell of a lot of money! Help me guys!

    Matt.

    Legally there's no comeback - you've given him the money.

    Where is the seller? You got a postal address for him?

    No I have no postal address, just a mobile number and email address. Surely there is something I can do? Surely Ebay can shut people down who don't send items?

    A work Colleague of mine bought an item from ebay which he never received. After about a week, he contacted ebay and they sorted it out for him. He got his money back and the seller received bad feedback. However, he did use paypal but that shouldn`t make a difference.

    Get in contact with ebay straight away and explain the situation, they should be able to contact the seller as well.

    Good luck.

    I think Beastra got the right idea, it won't harm contacting e-bay.

    Why name and shame him?

    If this guy makes a living out of this sort of thing then people should know his ebay username, so as not to buy from him. Maybe I was a bit harsh in saying name and shame him but this sort of thing is happening all the time now and it really bugs me to hear that these people are getting away with it.
