This information is provided for all of us who have bought an item on ebay.
I won an auction for a pair of running shoes. ($74.00 + $9.00 shipping and Handling = $83.00 total) from a Seller who sent me the wrong size. They were 1/2 inch too large.
new Nike Air Rift yellow olive/pollen 10 (This item is very popular with the movie stars of Hollywood, California)
I had to pay the full amount in order to ship them back to Texas as stated in his auction at the very bottom. I had no problem with shipping the shoes back. I did so with the United States Post Office using "Priority Mail".
Be sure to read all of the fine print of a auction. He stated on the bottom of the auction in font size 1 that the buyer had to pay for all return shipping charges.
I emailed him asking for a refund.
I waited, waited and waited. I filed a Paypal claim only to be told that I was too late.
Paypal a ebay Company told me that the time limit to file a claim had expired!
Claims must be filed within 30 days.
Upon checking his feedback profile, the latest three negative comments mentioned were:
Owe me $350.00
Immediate payment, item never shipped. Extremely poor seller.
never heard from him after I paid!
I pulled his contact information via ebay, called his cell number which was not in service.
I emailed ebay with this information that his number was not in service.
I received a email out of the blue from him stating that his number was in service.
I called him in Texas. He told me to expect a refund of $74.00 in my Paypal account.
Another month went by!
Did I give up? No.
I filed a case with the Internet Crime Complaint Center and since the United States Postal Service was utilized, I filed a case with the Unites States Postal Police.
I called his cell number and left a message stating that he left me no choice. I wanted my refund.
I finally recieved a full refund of $74.00 into my Paypal account from him.
