Who's to say the guy who claimed to be the seller was actually the seller? A lot of times, someone poses as the seller after the auction to scam you. I seriously doubt it was the same guy.

You can't go by EBay feedback when you buy outside of a protected EBay transaction. It doesn't mean anything.

Sandman is right, Ebay WILL NOT help out with this.  And as far as suing the seller, or whoever he is, that costs time and money to organize and follow through with. 

 

Local law enforcement is unlikely to do much besides file a report.  Believe me, there are not going to be detectives assigned to this, staking out his house.  Private investigators cost money. Lawyers cost money.  Even if you do get as far as identifying the individual and charging him with something, recouping any money will be a monumental task, even if you won any civil proceeding.  It will be years and many thousands of dollars later.  You could do it for the principle of the thing, but be prepared; doing it for that reason is great, but only if you have the funds and time to burn.   

 

Sorry to sound so negative, but this is the reality.  Chalk it up to experience and learn the lesson from it.  Hopefully, you will have helped to prevent it from happening to someone else, based on the information posted here.

 

SELECT COUNT(*) FROM EBAY_USER, BOUGHT \

WHERE \

(A.FUNDS_SENT > {1} \

AND A.PACKAGE_RECEIVED = {1} \

 

RETURN ALL ROWS

 

[0 Rows Retuned]

Uhhh... If you're selecting COUNT(), wouldn't you get a return value of 0 instead of a '[0 Rows Returned]' message?

That syntax is a little different from the T-SQL I'm accustomed to (guessing it's Oracle), but I'm thinking COUNT() works basically the same.

Cripes jeep. What were you thinking? If you were going to do a deal out side of ebay at least do escrow. They warn you about this stuff all the time. Western Union is not protected. Geez.

Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

Nope, didn't work out this time either. I was about to pay, when the seller emailed me saying he alreadu sold it. So I lose out again. I'm having crappy luck trying to get a hold of a Shocker....

^^^I've got money in my savings, that's where the first $700 came from, now I'll just have more to pay back than expected.

New news on the scam, I got an email from the seller today from a different email adress, he says he has no clue what I'm talking about. Either he's playing stupid, or more likely, it was someone different that scammed me.
