Can I claim my money back from ebay/Paypal after 6months if my tickets don't arrive???

Hi hopefully somebody can help.

I'm really tempted to bid on some tickets on ebay for a concert that's happening in 5 1/2 months time.

The thing is the person whose selling these tickets says they are selling them for a friend who doesn't have internet access, and I noticed that they have already sold a couple of other tickets 'for a friend' for a different venue but for the same concert.

They are also on a 24hr listing and I emailed the seller earlier today to ask if they had any proof of their friend actually having the tickets, like email confirmation etc but haven't heard anything back yet and the auction finishes shortly.

The only reason I'm tempted to bid on these tickets is because they are currently at a brilliant bargain price and I really want to go.

The seller has a feedbac score of 21 and joined ebay back in August last year.

So do you think it would be ok to chance it??

Would Paypal refund me if my tickets don't appear almost 6 months later???

No, the maximum time in which you can start a dispute is 90 days.

I once had a problem on ebay like this. I purchased something which was going to happen over 90 days in advance and as soon as the 90 days were up.... email stating sorry but not going to happen. Ebay/paypal not interested.

no, as above

Yes it does. Thank-you.

I'm a bit of an amateur with ebay, so a glad of your help.

Take That by any chance?

OP if you pay using paypal with your Credit card then Most banks cover you for 6 Months.

With 21 Feedback & only joined in August I would not buy from them.

To avoid hassle and worry just leave it

Wise words, thank-you :-)

i was desperate fot tickets and tried all day. I wasted over £30 credit on my mobile phone being kept on hold numerous occassions and being cut off as well as trying on the internet.

I have bough tickets off ebay in the past (for lady gaga and black eyed peas) but only when the sellers had tickets in hand and would post them as soon as auction ended.

just try nd buy nearer the time

Well-known and easy way of scamming people for their money, seller knows the buyer will wait for a long period which would be over the amount of days a claim can be filed on PayPal so they dont even have to worry about completing their end of the deal.

Avoid :-)
