9/16/17 5:59PM - Auction ends - I win 9/16/17 6:01PM - Pay in full with PayPal 9/20/17 5:13PM - Message seller as to status of shipping item. It has now been 4 days with no info. 9/20/17 8:30PM - Message from seller apologizing for delay because of "work problems". Says they will ship the next day, and send tracking info. 9/26/17 7:30AM - Open claim with eBay for non-shipment of item. Choice of refund or item - I request refund. In comments - "I do not want the item - I want a full refund" 9/26/17 12:17PM - eBay message from seller's account- Item has shipped. 9/26/17 1:30PM - Contact eBay, who tells me that I now need to receive the item. If I refuse it, I lose my buyer protection. I must then file an "Item not as described" claim after receipt, and seller must issue postage paid return label and refund purchase price. Nice to see that eBay really has my back on this one. Where is all of the support? Everyone says eBay always sides with buyers, takes money for refunds from sellers, etc. By the time this shakes out, it will be over 2 weeks I am without item OR funds. Oh, and no reply from message to seller as to why he disregarded the refund request, and shipped the item. Also, now I'm worried that he will try and weasel out of the deal in some way - I plan to fully video and document the opening of the package to make sure that he really sent the item in the "like new" condition as described, and doesn't try to say I'm trying to scam HIM... Not happy... P.S. This is an eBay member since 2001 with 100% feedback on almost 400 transactions. I get that people have bad days, and had he responded or reached out in any way to talk about it, I would have been happy to listen. In the early going, I just would have been happy to have had a refund of the $12.75 in "Expedited Shipping" charges, since he didn't ship within the window, but at this point I just want to completely wash my hands of this.
