Have I been shafted or what ?

Bought a phone on here over a week ago. Seller insisted I pay that night for it to be posted next day. I paid via PAYPAL GIFT as everyone insists on that. I've had no reply from seller since I paid. I have not received the phone.

I also had an option for P&P which was

2nd class = FREE
1st class = add a whopping £2.30 (real price 40p-ish)
Recorded = £3.00 extra (real price 75p)

I have contacted seller 3 or 4 times via PM and email.... Nothing !

Am I screwed ? Is there anything I can do ?

I paid via PAYPAL GIFT

That was mistake number 1.
Never ever ever pay with Paypal Gift unless you know 100% that the person you are dealing with is trustworthy.

Small claims if you have their address and screenshots of thread/pm's showing a deal took place.

Maybe this isn't the time to be suggesting marriage.


Hopefully you'll get the problem sorted OP.

There is no hostility - if you dealt via PM, you deserve what you got thats all.

If not, as I said, link to the thread, and we'll try to help.

They seem trustworthy - their feedback is good - we've even spoken on here before...

regular paypal payment doesn't give much protection outside of ebay, so the gift part isnt that important

Looks as tho' dealing was done by PM as there is no confirmation from both sides agreeing to the deal in the thread. If you didn't follow recommendations in FS/FT guidelines, you only have yourself to blame. Unfortunate, but that's it.

LOL at you Predi. Always looking on the brighter side of life :thumbsup:

I think his postage fees were fair if that's any consolation. To post a phone recorded would cost more than 40p, probably more than the £3 he's charged, you've not done too bad.

There is no sale agreed in that thread if that is the one you purchased the item from, so unfortunately then this is a private matter between you & the other party as the sale wasn't conducted on HUKD. Thread closed. Please do not re-post.
