 I was ripped off online on eBay. I found that the negative feedback will not give me my money back. The first thing that buyers think about is this negative feedback.  ( Many sellers do hold the feedback untill buyers post ). Actually I never think Of writing a review about this issue as I only sell on eBay Until few weeks when I bought somthing and never get it from the seller.I searched about what to do in this situation untill a found the process that should be done as follows ( this is from my point of view ):

1 - Work with the seller and Inform him clearly about the problem ( many emails ) as much as you can daily. Many volume sellers can't read all the emails. Keep on asking about your rights.

1 - File a complaint with eBay File a report immediately with eBay Rules & Safety http://pages.ebay.com/help/basics/select-RS.html

2 - You should also submit an online complaint at :

http://crs.ebay.com/aw-cgi/ebayisapi.dll?crsstartpage

within 30 days after the listing end.

3 - You should visit Internet Fraud Complaint Center to submit a complaint at: www(dot)ic3(dot)gov

4 - File a complaint at FTC Bureau of Consumer Protection Consumer Response Center.

5 - Contact your local and state police departments.

6 - Also contact law-enforcement officials in the perpetrator's town & state.

7 - File a complaint with USPS

8 - File a complaint with better business bureau

9 - The last step If you paid through credit card online do a charge back on the transaction through the issuer bank. Most of the banks give 90 days after the transaction is done.. so make it the last step.
