Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

hi ! well, that's what I would have and did think! it turns out eBay has NO enforcement power whatsoever save banning someone ( for up to a year then they get a clean start and can start ripping off all over again ! ) yes indeedy I did immediately file a complaint in the "resolution center"which is(outsourced offshore 10,000 miles away by very nice and friendly, professional philippinas ! ) they were quite nice and empathetic and said basically, sorry we (eBay ) ! can do nothing ! they said "be sure to file negative feedback" which is a further farce as you get 80 characters of space to say....... Nearly nothing ! )Not even a complete sentence!This despicable seller is free to sell the car again on e-bay ! and elsewhere! They ONLY look at feedback, (including negative ) only once a month on the 20 th of the month ( oh sorry Mr. Dale, it's too late for this month I was told )! the sad fact is as they say "your experience may not be typical " you mayhaps were lucky when you bought your car and had an honest seller and your transaction went smoothly now imagine you had been ME in this rotten deal ? just because you win an auction and pay in full for the car, obey all rules and regulations, are polite, proper etc DOESN'T mean you'll get it ! and, eBay will do................................... NOTHING ! regards, Neil
