Shanked??? how do you know you have a bad seller??

OK all,

You tell me if Im being taken advantage of ?

I responded to a post here in the forum for an item for sale on November 9th.

The seller accepted my offer on the 10th, accepted my PAYPAL payment the next day and told me it would take a week to get a box to ship the item to me.

Week goes by, two weeks go by . . no email no PM no box!

at the start of the third week, I PM the seller, he responds that he will check into the things, he prioirty mailed it out the week before!

Seller does not respond to several PMs then says that the package was lost in transit and was returned to his post office , the address label was pulled off and returned to the postal center he mailed it from.

He sends me a PM tellling me he reshipped it on December 22.

He has not reasonably responded to any of my queries over the last two weeks for a status report.

I have sent him 3 PM requesting a copy of the mailing reciept so I can track my package that seems to be lost - again and he has not responded in 3 days - even though he is actively posting on Ezone . . . . . . . .

Should I go to the post office with the emails and persue postal fraud and turn him into paypal for fraud or give him the benefit of the doubt and wait longer . . . .

I am going to take the high road now and not disclose his name.

What do you think my next step should be??
