Did you pay by Paypal? If so you will be covered.

Start a dispute.
Things to be aware of seeing as there are issues:
1) If you do get sent a package, open it in front of the postman in case it's full of paper to the weight of a phone
2) If you do get sent the phone, be aware that some people sell their phones, having taken out insurance and then claim it has been stolen and get the phone barred.
3) If you can, buy a phone from a reputable retailer or seller next time.

Did you check the feedback of the seller?

3 private feedback and you handed over 400 notes

It wasn't private before i bought the phone. They had many items sold in the past its just that its past a year. I did paypay by paypal but i want to open an a case on ebay. The ebay buyer protection should refund my money in full. But i have to wait til the 14th for some reason. A paypal dispute will only recover the money thats left on the sellers account which could be 1p. I cant do a paypal dispute and a case on ebay, Its one or the other. Ill let you guys know how it goes.

OWNED. Stupid buying a second hand phone anyway as they normally just block them as soon as the paypal window has expired through an insurance scam.


I have learnt my lesson, wont be buying anything from ebay again. Well I don't have any money left either.

Im so confused by this thread, did you buy via ebay? Or pay via paypal gift separate through the email you posted above?

If you paid via ebay using paypal you will be covered.

I have been buying stuff from eBay for over ten years, never had a problem, but I only buy from reliable sellers with a long record of good feedback.

unless it was 32gb i can't see the point in buying it for that much through ebay.

Good luck on getting paypal to give you the money back. Shouldn't be too hard if you went through the normal channels.
