I've bought a bike from someone on ebay who described the bike as in "Great Condition". They said I could make an offer, so I did and it was accepted and I arranged a courier but paid via Paypal. The bike has arrived today covered in rust (not the frame as it's aluminium) and one pedal is missing (I can only assume went missing enroute).
I can't even resell the bike because of this at a low cost. Is there anything I can do to recoup my money without having to go to further expense of buying a new pedal?
Am I covered by Paypal for this even though it didn't finally get sold via ebay as they removed it from sale when I made the offer?
Another very expensive lesson learnt!
