    Default Being Scammed ?

    A month or so ago I bought a part on e-bay using the buy it now option. At the time I asked the seller to confirm it was the right part as they quoted a L/H part number, but showed a picture of the R/H.

    My payment was refunded with no explaination, so I assumed they had messed up and thought no more about it.

    I have now had an e-mail saying we have posted your item, please pay, which looks like the normal e-bay invoice.

    I'm going to wait and see if it does show up before I pay, and even then they may get a cheque.....

    The seller sent you the item, which you received, and then processed a refund?
    This is their error
    They can request you make payment, but you are not obliged to make any payment

    I had a similar issue with a well known ebay seller, they processed the refund to the wrong buyer (or so they claimed)
    Their loss
    I forwarded both messages to eBay and they advised me not to enter into any correspondence with the seller

    No - they never dispatched it and refunded my up front payment.

    An e-mail has now arrived claiming it's been sent and requesting payment - smells fishy to me

    Forget it - let them go through Ebay if they have any grievance and let them sort it out - it probably is a scam of some sort. Take it you have Paypal/Ebay records of everything.

    Yes - of course.

    Like I said if the part does show up ( I'd be surprised ) then I will pay them.

    Luckily I hadn't bought another in the meantime

    Did you do all communications through ebay messages? If you did I certainly wouldnt be worried.

    If the part does arrive, I'd contact eBay first and see if they suggest you pay. It sounds abit funny to me.

    i was scammed 2 yrs ago out of £3500 over a car i was going to buy but turned out that this particular car it didnt even exist,
    travelled over 200 mile then to find out it was a complete scam was very much hook line and sinker.

    after it happened it left us with no a car and money to buy another. this was a big lesson learnt

    cant go into it too much as theres a hell of alot more to it and what happened in the end but lets put it
    this way i didnt get a penny back.
