I am in a holding pattern right now to see if I got scammed on Ebay.
I ordered something, and didn't pay close attention to the seller, or the location. It was a good price, and free shipping. Sounded good to me! It wasn't until after I hit the buy it now and paypal that I noticed that 1) The seller was brand new, as in ZERO feedback, and 2) He was in China.
At the time that I noticed, it made me a little nervous, and I fluffed it off. Everyone was a newbie at some time, right??? And even though the shipping stated it was free, the estimated time of arrival was 13-20 business days. OK, lesson learned....I will wait.
Then this morning I got a notice from Ebay that they pulled the listing due to possible copyright issues. Upon further investigation...it is POSSIBLE that I bought a copy of something....not the real deal. Ebay said I had to wait 7 days to open a case. Ok....that is next Friday.
THEN, I get notice from PayPal that my item has shipped. OK.....So back to Ebay I go, and per the site, I have to wait for the item to arrive and I can inspect it. If it is a fraudulent copy, then I can open a case. If it is ok....then I go on my merry way.
I am hoping HOPING HOPING that this is just a new guy that got flagged. And that my item is real. It was purchased as a gift.
The lesson from all of this....read EVERYTHING before you commit!!!
