    Default eBay fraud - 9 iPhones gone?!

    Hi there,

    I'm right now in some trouble. Bought 9 iPhones + Shipping for about 5200$ on eBay, from a 100% feedback seller with a verified paypal account.
    He promised me on saturday, that the package will go out on monday and that I will get a tracking number then. About 30minutes ago I have noticed, that all auctions had been deleted, the account has been removed - and, still no message from the seller.
    I opened a Paypal claim and I'm hoping now that it's not too late. Does anyone have similar expiriences? Did you get the money back from paypal?
    AFAIK, paypal will freeze the account if there is a claim..right?

    Thanks for any hints/feedback!

    Cheers from Switzerland

    I had an almost the similar situation.

    I was buying one phone from a guy with 100% feedback etc. I allready made the bit and was just getting ready to make a payment when one of his previous buyers sent me an message that the guy was scamming and he and several others had not received their phones. I stopped the payment and made a claim to ebay. Couple of days later the sellers account and items were taken offline and he is now taking charges.

    Hope you get some of your money back!

    100% feedback means nothing unless there are at least 5 postive feedbacks from iPhone buyers.

    Yeah, I noticed that 100% feedback doesn't mean much
    But did anyone have similar expiriences?

    @jasonn: Could you PM me the name of the eBay user who warned you? Maybe he can give me some hints

    I've read that it'll take a few days until a payment has "really" arrived by the sellers account - so when I've paid on saturday and filled a claimed after 48h, there should be a chance that i can get a chargeback from paypal..right? :/

    damnit, 5k$!

    Hopefully you paid for your purchase through PayPal using your credit card.

    Good. You have the extra protection of the credit card. Let PayPal respond to you. They will probably reverse the credit card charge. You can let VISA know if you want to ahead of time, but they will wait on PayPal. It least you will be on record. You can search the ebay forums for more info.

    Good luck.
