    Vehicle : Vectra SRi

    Trim : XP NAV

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2007

    Default eBay advice needed....

    It might just be me panicking, but I would appreciate it if anyone could offer any advice, or have seen this themselves.

    I sent a best offer on some purple GHD's for the mrs, it got accepted (straightaway) and I sent payment via Paypal about 30 mins later, this was about 9.30am this morning. I then got sent (at about 12pm) an email from eBay saying it had removed the listing not saying specifically why, and then one from paypal saying the same thing, I have used eBay for a while and never had this, so I don't know if I have been diddled, or it was removed becuase the item was no longer for sale.

    I have emailed the seller for an explanation and as to wether I have the item or not (I'm not too bothered about the money, as I am covered being through paypal).

    Has this happened to anyone here, is it a normal thing, or something dodgy?

    Any comments/help would be appreciated.

    Yep happened to me a while back, I still received the item though. I would give it the usual 7 days, if no reply from the seller start a dispute with ebay/paypal and get your money back!!

    Hope you get it sorted!

    This happened to me with GHD's for my mother-in-law. You'll get your money back out of PayPal eventually. Just a pain.

    I then bought another set which when arrived were fakes. You couldn't tell unless you knew what to look for. Best advice I can give you is don't buy GHD from ebay or if you must then look at the price, if it's too good to be true, it probably is.

    Great, just done a search and the users other items have been removed and when you do a search under their name, they are now no longer a registered eBay user.

    Should I contact paypal now, or do I have to wait..?

    yeah, raise a dispute asap and quote the ebay e-mail as the reason for the dispute. I would also immediately change it from waiting a response from the seller straight to getting paypal to look at it for you. Should speed up the process for you.

    I have raised a dispute with Paypal, so one way or another it should get sorted. What a right royal pain in the bum, as they were a present for the Mrs, and I can't get any others till this dispute is sorted

    yeah, unfortunately if I were you I'd forget ebay for them at all. Even if you do get someone with good feedback and they do actually arrive, you can't be sure they are the real thing.
