The claim that he can't relist seems odd, as there's nothing that should prevent this - but 'second chance' offers are a real thing on eBay, if done correctly: http://pages.ebay.co.uk/help/buy/second-chance.html

As for protection, you'd have the usual buyer protection, but if this is from a private seller, that's unlikely to extend to a warranty agreement.

So say if he didnt send the item or sent me something completely different would i be protected?

If he opened a case for none payment then he would not be able to relist phone until the transaction is closed. It can take 30 days to sort out as he would need to avoid paying the sellers fees. I'm guessing he's realised he's not going to get paid so has option to sell to you as a second chance offer. He's thinking stuff the other buyers as time wasters. Just pay with PayPal and you will be covered. Nothing wrong with this.

Yes. Just make sure that it's a legitimate 'second chance' offer, and not coming via external links. If legitimate, you should be receiving the offer via your eBay "My Messages".

Oh. Log into your eBay account and communicate that way. Don't communicate outside of your ebay account.

Avoid. You'll be thankful in the long run. Avoid ebay for anything other than cheap tat from China.

Yes he can relist
#10
What's their recent feedback like? do they sell much? this would give you an idea of how much trust to put in them. personally I'd avoid but only because of the amount of scams that seem to be on there.

I'd recommend going to your eBay account directly - legitimate 'second offers' should come via your eBay messages. There may well be nothing wrong with what you have, but it's hard to say without having direct access to the email.

DONT DO IT!!!
If it he hasn't gone through ebay, it is probably a scam!!
He may just be trying to avoid ebay fees, or he may be using a hacked ebay account or dodgy paypal.
If you haven't received any notification through ebay, do not send any money!

Utter rubbish, the seller can do a second chance offer, or why not create a new listing if he's going to get all his money back from dispute? Clear attempt for a scam

I told him to relist he said he has hit the maximum selling listings
#16
sounds like he is trying to avoid ebay fees and therefore offering you less protection
#17
Tell him you wont do it without going through ebay, as you wont be covered the buyer protection and you will both get in trouble if anything goes wrong.
He can offer you a second chance offer or relist it.
If neither of these options are available - then walk away!

Not necessarily it sounds plausible that the seller has reached their selling limit.

If the seller has indeed reached their selling limit for the month they can't sell anything else unfortunately.

#23
walk away. better to be safe than sorry later on. Looks like he wants to avoid ebay
fees but that means you have less protection. Not worth the hassle.

Look at his items for sale then completed items,that will show items he's had for sale before.

Check for following:
How long has he been a seller
His feedbacks & ratings
How many negatives in twelve months

Avoid if he doesn't relist or offer second chance.

You're still missing a crucial point,the seller can't list anything if the limits are reached.

Still I'd avoid,but it doesn't necessarily mean he's out to scam the OP because he can't relist.
