Found 25th Jan 2010
Basically i dont no why but i bought a mobile £49.99
It came with no charger, so i asked a thousand times for a charger and was promised to be sent one a thousand times, never ever recieved it so i opened a paypal dispute,
we then came to a descicion so closed the paypal dispute.

the descicion being i sent the phone (recorded) which cost bloody £12
and then he would refund me for the cost of the phone and postage back

I provided him with the tracking no. this has been going on since about september last year, I am messaging him nearly everyday asking for a refund, he did say he couldnt cause of paypal so i rang paypal and after speeking with an answer machine and pushing 1,2,3,4 all that crap for half an hour i eventually spoke to a lady who said "you closed the case so theres nothing we can do"

now he is completely blanking me, anyone else done the same sort of thing?
is there anything i can i do? thanks will rep helpers xx

Would have been so much cheaper to buy a charger yourself surely.

Now you are £62 out of pocket.

As the paypal case as been closed, there is nothing you can do via paypal and ebay.

If the phone was sent recorded, it will may of been insured depending on the service used.

Try and seek the costs back on the parcel if the tracking states its not arrived.

Best of luck!

negative him...did he send it recorded, if not buy again using another account and just claim through paypal (never received) and keep the phone

nothing you can do as you closed the dispute just do as said before track the parcel if it is not showing as being delivered you can place a claim with royalmail but only for about £32 (unless it has gone up) unless you paid extra insurance

Right i have tracked the parcel, it says this:-

Your item, posted on 16/11/09 with reference R###########GB has been passed to the overseas postal service for delivery in CHINA.

does that mean its been delivered, or should i claim?

read what it says, it said it's been passed to the overseas postal service.
once it left UK there is no tracking at all.
you should have checked before posting to see if its tracked all the way to delivery then if not (as is the case) chose a better postal option that did provide tracking all the way there.

A better option would have been to just pay the £4 odd for a charger instead of £12 for post

royal mail, how do i make a claim? x

I am afraid you haven't got a prayer of seeing anything again.

Unfortunately you went about the whole process completely wrong suprising given the fact that you must be aware there are several ebay experts on here.

The chances of a parcel being trackable to China are minute, and if it has been delivered you can't even claim from the postal insurance.

I think you need to forget it and learn from it.
