    Default Ebay problem

    hi..i won a coffee machine on ebay a few days ago for a very good price..and luckily in the same town as me as well.. so no postage on top either..
    thing is the seller said they would only take paypal.. but i offered cash on collection as they wouldnt have to pay any paypal fees to recieve it etc..
    seller has sent me 2 invoices with the price including delivery, £15 more! obviously i dont/wont be paying it as i will be collecting..
    now they arnt replying back to any emails or anything and i am starting now to doubt their honesty etc in the item.. i did say if they wanted paypal, i would do it while i was their at their house when I was collecting it and would do it on my phone to make sure the item was as it was described and working etc..
    have also managed to get their telephone number in the request contact info section.. and i have politely text them to say i would like to collect asap at a time convenient to them etc.. but no reply either!!!
    is it me being a bit cautious.. or is something not right...??

    i think you are right to be cautious whenever i have picked anything up its always been cash on collection as they dont have to pay the fees i think it could be a little dodgy me thinks!!!

    It does sound a bit dodgey that. And £15 is quite expensive for postage. I mailed a rear backbox exhaust for a little over 8 quid
