Have I been blocked?

17
Found 26th May 2011
Won something off Ebay cheaper than the seller wanted, but she did agree I could pick it up today.
She gave me her phone number yesterday which I called fine and got addy.

Today im trying to call the same number to ask to pick up earlier but its doing a noise then saying "Sorry there is a fault please try again"

Tried my parents home and that rings properly, but its just this 1. Can she put my number on block?

She wanted £15 more for the item than I won it for and I have a feeling she really doesnt want to sell it to me.

Says network unavailable and just cuts off when I try with mobile. I may request user info off Ebay to make sure the address she gave me is the one on system. Suspicious I am lol

Just forget about it. If she's blocked your number and is ignoring your emails, she isn't going to concede the loss just because you've found another means to contact her.

Edit: I don't think stalking her's going to do any good either.

report to ebay?

If she gave you the addy then just go for it - she will get a neg if she is not there and if she is then all is well. There could easily be a reason for the phone not working properly and it is easy to read too much into it.

I have to turn up early though, I arranged to pick up afternoon, but I forgot I volunteered to go with my sons nursery class on the school trip.

Im thinking I will just have to go and hope for the best then.

Are you daft? The question is "have I been blocked" not "I have been blocked, what now?"

Its ok I have life insurance!! Only picking up a TV for my son, Imagine the TVs he could buy with my life insurance

Logic dictates that if you called the seller and spoke to her yesterday and she gave you her address in order to collect the item today, that 1. the phone number works and 2. she has given you her address. If she wanted to back out of the deal why would she give you her address in the first place? After all, why put herself through the hassle of you turning up at the door and her having to make an excuse so as not to sell it to you? It probably is a fault on her line/network provider issues. Last week the o2 network was down in London for about 2-3 hours, people who were trying to call me got a similar message. These things do happen.

I know these things happen, I just don't want to turn up early unexpected as thats a bit rude really. But I have no choice due to school trip in afternoon. Only wanted to call to check it was ok. But i have no option to just go and hope she is in now due to no replies from Emails or phone

Have you tried sending a text?
