    i just got jipped! mother effer!! i bought a 30gb ipod photo from ebay june 14th and I haven't receieved it. and since then the seller has had 11 negative feedback comments which means he's a freaking fraud! i just got jipped and so did 11 other ppl. thank god he has paypal buyer proection up to $1000 so i just filed a claim. hopefully the dispute will be settled within 30 days and i will get my $315 back . err i wanted that ipod but i guess i'll have to wait. oh yeah and now apple only sells the 20gb ipod photo not the 30gb.

    overall bad experience and im pissed..i'm hating ebay right now...

    Well, i haven't gone through this since they implemented the $1,000 cash back, but I might have bad news for you. I had a similar problem, about 2 years ago, and since the clown had already withdrawn the money from his paypal account, I was S.O.L. However, with this new policy in place, you might be OK. Um, did you purchase it? I thought it had to be purchased for some really small fee...?

    EDIT: and don't hate ebay, it's not their fault people out there have nothing better to do than scam people. I have a feedback of 1170 and people are messing with me all the time. Yeah, it's a headache, but again, not eBay's fault.

    I notice you said $315 for a photo. Did you know you were buying a photo, or did you think you were buying an actual iPod? If it stated photo on the listing (and not the actual hardware) not much that can be done on that one. Peeps (and Ebay) would likely say to read the auction description carefully, so as to know what one is bidding on.

    But either way, his taking the money and not sending the merchandise, there is more then negative feedback you can do. In fact if others are having problems, they can do the same. Basically report the matter to Ebay themself.

    http://pages.ebay.com/help/tp/programs-investigations.html

    I recommend you visit the page for the appropriate forms and information wrt a complaint you might chose to make with Ebay. Such a complaint would be covered under

    http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/inr-snad-policy.html

    Though much might not be done with a scammer for one complaint, if they get a history of it... And trust me, reporting such a scammer, also helps your fellow Ebayers out as well...

    :mad: Jerkasaurus wrecks!! That's why I never shop e-bay. A lot of scammers work hard to build up a high rating, just waiting for the right opportunity to come along and skip with as much money as possible....

    I think you'll be ok. He's registered with eBay using his credit card (and if he used PayPal -- his bank account) so they should be able to get your money back. Cheer up =]

    You know, there was a study conducted which showed that feedback is responsible for as much as 8% of an item's worth on eBay. For good reason I guess...
