that’s crazy. That guy is a real piece of shhhhit, he did so much work to try and get away with a petty $200 bucks...

And that’s really weird first deal was good and second deal so shady.

I’m glad you got your money back. PayPal is awesome for that. All my online purchases are done via PayPal for this reason.

Damn sorry you went through all of that . Years ago I I had a simular experience but not for that much money . Honestly on Ebay I don't trust anyone . Unless it's a store front and has buy it now and I think I can trust it and can buy it with my CC .

That sucks. Hope you get your money back. A couple years back I ordered a set of front and rear seatbelts when I was restoring my 1980 Monte. Paid $250 thru PayPal for them from a guy on Ebay. Package showed up with only front inners and I contacted the seller and of course he said he sent all of them. I sent pics of the packaging and the 2 belts but still he said he sent them all. So I contacted PayPal to try to get a refund but in the end they sided with the seller so I was out $250. So it doesn't always go in way of the buyer. I got fuked on that deal.

Yeah, once a dude bought my Traxxas rustler and i specifically said it was modified and had a team associated t4 body on it, couple days later, dude was like "this aint no Traxxas ruslter it's a t4!" And kept changing his BS story, so as eBay always does they sided with the dumbass. So I was pissed about that but now, whatever
