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 I had a similar problem, about 2 years ago, and since the clown had already withdrawn the money from his paypal account, I was S.O.L. However, with this new policy in place, you might be OK.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

The Investigations team attempts to resolve reported cases of inappropriate trading behavior. eBay will consider the circumstances of an alleged offense and the user's trading records before taking action. Disciplinary action may range from a formal warning, up to indefinite suspension of a user's account. However, if we cannot prove your complaint with certainty, we may take no action.

How to report specific trading offenses:
Make sure that your complaint falls under what eBay investigates by reviewing the offenses explained on this page. Questions about topics such as fraud, dispute resolution, items not received or significantly not as decribed and VeRO are addressed on other eBay Help pages.
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

eBay's Item Not Received or Significantly Not as Described policy requires sellers to deliver items they have sold on eBay and have received payment for. Sellers who fail to deliver items to buyers, or who deliver items which are "significantly not as described", may face possible account restriction and suspension. An item is considered "significantly not as described" if the seller clearly misrepresents the item in a way that directly affects its value or usability. In some cases, eBay will also contact and cooperate with law enforcement to penalize fraudulent sellers.
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...
