Dreadful David and so glad that you'll get your money back although there is sadly no replacing wasted expectations and time. Really sad that someone will sink so low to do this to another person sad.gif .

I do not really like paypal, but seems like it has some advantages as well.

Oh man sorry to hear this...That guy must have been scammer since he sent an empty box in order to make things worse...We should really be careful on ebay , I imagine there are lots of people like that over there...Hope you'll receive your money soon and then you can go to a local store and treat yourself with a Mac you wanted.

Thanks a lot for all your support guys!
I went on Ebay yesterday to leave the guy a bad feedback and saw that someone else got scammed by him the same exact way...
Paypal is on it though and I reported the fraud to Ebay.
I like Paypal a lot, they are very helpful.
I'll keep you posted!
Thanks again everyone! :-)

eBay is like the wild west I swear.... You should see all the fake Gibsons and Epiphones on there. Cheap Chinese replicas that are passed off as the real deal! People get ripped off CONSTANTLY on fleaBay. I rarely buy on there anymore, if I do I'm verrrry cautious. First you gotta make sure the seller has lotsss of positive feedback, see what other items they're selling, make sure the ad isn't mis leading in anyway, make sure the deal isn't too good to be true - because on ebay IT DEFINITELY ISN'T TRUE!

That's great advice!
I must say, this is the first time it happened to me, and I bought almost all my stuff on Ebay, never had a problem...

Well I sell stuff on eBay, and recently they changed they way auctions work. When the auction ends, the buyer paypals the money to the seller. The funds are in the sellers account 'pending'. They are not available. They only become available when the buyer leaves positive feed back OR the item is delivered and paypal frees up the funds. Now this is sort of interesting, what I do is I print the postage label from payal with the tracking number so paypal knows when the package is delivered. I guess if I was a scammer, at that point in time I could call pay pal and have the buyers pending funds released. I'm sure pretty quickly they'd figure out what I was upto and it wouldn't work forever. A lot of these scammers are international and no justice is brought to them unfortunately sad.gif

Sickening. I hope you get a full refund. I'd feel miserable if that happened to me with 1700 usd.

Man, what a story. Why don´t people like him go just simply to work and earn their money legally instead of disappointing others? Sad, but true. sad.gif

Fortunately, PayPal is a good service and you´ll get the money back!

Ya sometimes the world just sickens me. Like on an earlier post its "fleabay" IT sounds like you will get your money back, which is the good news. Sorry for your dissappointment and trouble. Its sucks to get ripped off any amount of money. But thanks for the tip, I have never purchased anything off ebay, and hearing this I probably never will.

That's awful sad.gif

I have always checked out my sellers feedback and e-mailed back and forth before buying so I know I can trust them, so I only have good experience with eBay..
I hope you get your money back and that jerk get's arrested!!
