Anyone else ever have problems with an eBay seller named 'collind4205'
I won an eBay auction (320037091992) back on Oct 17. After confirming the total with shipping to Mexico (his ad said 'N. and S. America'), I made a PayPal payment the same evening. Please note that the seller wanted $16 US for shipping, about twice what I normally pay for a small packet sent by USPS Global Airmail from the USA.
I received no further response and no item, so on Nov 8 I sent the seller a polite note asking for tracking info. He responded that the package had not yet been sent (after 3 weeks).
I sent the seller a note asking him to send the package soon. On Nov 9 the seller sent a reply stating he was "doing you a favor" by sending overseas, and was having difficulties obtaining the forms necessary to send overseas
On Nov 9 I sent this third note:
Well, tell you what: since the paperwork seems to be presenting you with difficulties, perhaps it would be best if we called this auction off. I will be happy to leave a positive feedback if you refund my payment via PayPal.
I haven't received any response, and haven't received any refund.
On Monday, Nov 13, I sent another note asking the seller to either send proof of shipment (tracking number, photo of shipping bill, etc.) _or_ send a PayPal refund. After no reply for a day, I opened a 'dispute' with PayPal.
: After opening a claim with PayPal, I finally received a refund on Dec 12th, roughly 8 weeks after original payment.
