    ebay does this seem ok ?

    ok i bought a gift card off ebay for £90ish i asked the seller if i can have the numbers off it emailed to me so i can use it online after i pay, they said no problems and they would send me them via email and they were not a scammer ?? ok i said thats fine i will pay now and you can send me the numbers next time your online, i got another message ok pay paypal i am not a scammer you can claim back off paypal if you are worried that im a scammer so you neednt worry ??
    i never thought they were a scammer till they kept saying it but anyway i paid paypal this morning, ive just logged into my ebay and there wasnt a £ sign there was a little egg timer looking thing :giggle: so i logged into paypal and it said unclaimed ?? so i canceled the payment and have emailed them to ask if there is a problem with there paypal account as the funds said unclaimed ive never seen this before ? does anyone else know why this has happened or has it happened to you before am i to worry or shall i just resend them money ?? arghhh so confused !

    thanks all

    they have the wrong email address allocated to their ebay account (when you set up the listing and put your paypal email address in).

    It happens a lot, but be careful if they ask you to pay to another account as you will not be covered!

    ok so do i tell them to add the newone to ebay as ill only pay thro ebay ? it should work like that shouldnt it :oops:

    the thing is because the auction has ended there's nothing you can do. This is the sellers error so be careful.

    Does the seller have a good feedback rating? What you trust them to send them money without being covered?

    thanks for the help repped :thumbsup:

    Go to the ebay forums for advice, if this is known scam someone there will give you the heads up. It sounds dodgy to me I would be very wary.
