I bought an xbox live code from ebay from a seller who had 299 feedback and had a history of selling other xbox codes left in his feedback.
In the description he said that he would send it on the same day by email. I wanted it fast and I have done that on the request of a buyer a few years ago. He had 7 for sell, I bought one and I thought I should get it later. Later in the evening I emailed him, no response. The following day I still have not received the item or an response. I check my purchase history and notice that it say's that he has relisted the item, he relisted later on the first day 7 more times all sold. I then saw that it said "this item has been relisted again" click it and he's got another auction on and 3 have sold and he's got more left.
I then look at his feedback to see if anybody has left feedback... nope, I realise it must be a scam, I tried to report the current listing to ebay but they make you select pre defined options. Today I look and I see that he managed to sell 13 more live codes and I see that his feedback has lowered to 288. People have started leaving feedback saying that they have been scammed, no resonse from seller etc.
I can't open a case in ebay until next week Wednesday as I tried and it said I must wait until then. I think the seller probably set the estimated delivery date as far as he could to make as much as possible and so that nobody could open a case.
Looking at ebays price promise after having no way to actually report this to them, it says that digitally delivered goods will not be covered. The guy made it clear in his listing that he would email the code and that he wouldn't send anything so where do I stand in regards to getting my money back?
