On the 5th of this month I had been watching an item on ebay which had no bids on and asked if the seller would accept a buy it now offer, (through ebay, not outside of ebay) which was promptly accepted. I paid £150 for £200 of garden vouchers which is not an OMG too good to be true offer, they had good feedback, they replied quickly and politely to emails prior to payment and I paid via paypal.
Since the moment payment was sent I have received no contact, no vouchers and I was told they would be sent next day fully insured . I have sent various emails - all polite and asking what is going on, I opened a dispute with paypal and have now had to escalate it.
I always thought I was scam-proof with the precautions I took and feel really upset, it's £150!
What is the liklihood of paypal paying out, I heard something about them only paying out what the person has in their account, or something like that - which sounds rubbish. Does anyone have any experience, advice and know how likely I am to get my hard earnt money back in my account?
I would be grateful for all help.
