Re: This is not true... have you answered the question... - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
To expand/clarify what Scott said - I think we all agree it sucks you didn't get the car, and it sucks to have spent money on plane tickets and spare parts, but there is no scenario where you should be out the money on the car (or your insurance, for that matter). TBH, that message from the seller really makes it sound like he knows he made a mistake, not like he is trying to steal your money. That tone is just not consistent with a guy trying to rip you off. Have you filed the appropriate form with ebay/paypal (we still don't know which - MC/ebay/paypal is ambiguous) to have your payment refunded? It's a couple clicks and your money should be back virtually instantly. Flakey sellers do happen, and buyers are not hung out to dry - those refunds are swift. Still, I think the lesson here is don't try to buy big-ticket items long distance from 0 feedback sellers. That's like buying high end speakers from a dude in a white van.
