Wow! Sorry for your misfortune, and thanks for the warning. I haven't sold anything on Ebay yet, but have been thinking about it. I wonder if working through Pay-Pal can help prevent this sort of thing. As a buyer, I had a problem with a thief once, and Pay-Pal returned my money. This will make me do more research. In any case, the guy with whom you are dealing is definitely a "low-life".
I went through pay-pal! BUT, like I said, I was the stupid one and I hit "REFUND MONEY" on pay-pal to make this guy happy. Well now he has my money and item. I'll probably be calling pay-pal too to see what they can do.
