I have my claim in with Paypal to cover me. The seller has responded to Paypal and gave Paypal a shipping tracking number that they have also sent on to me. It will be interesting to see how that pans out. I am not holding my breath though.

Couple months back we had a seller sell trex450 clones for $60. The stuff he sent was coins and tiny foam gliders, both of which were worthless. Everyone ended up getting their money back but it took couple of weeks for some.

You got a full refund already? Can you share how you went about that for those of us who are going through our 1st scam situation on Ebay please. Meaning, did you go through Ebay or PayPal to get your refund? I went through PayPal and they are telling me that per their rules they'll contact (or try to) the seller and give him 10 days to return my payment (ain't gonna happen) and then if they don't hear from him they will reimburse my payment. Is this similar to what you did? Thanks

I filed a complaint on E-Bay site, within 1 day they and PP redunded my money, I did not have to do anything except file complaint. Not sure how it got resolved so quickly but it did.
On the other hand the Hero 3 for $79 has not seen much from e-bay except that they accknowledged complaint! Some knows how to push right buttons others like me do not.

Interesting, and wouldn't ya know it....that's the one I went for. Oh well. I'll just have to wait and see what PP does about it. I shouldn't have to wait more than 10 days and I can certainly get by for that long. Especially since I was so friggin' stupid to even go for it. Thanks for your input.

Update:
E-bay contacted seller and he convincved them he was legit, so I am in holding mode also to see if or what shoes up.
The Hero 2 was different story, e-bay and PP pulled his plug quickly.

The Hero 3 Black edition for #79.99 seller that I bought from convinced Ebay that he was legit? Because I got an email from Ebay the day after I placed my order saying that they pulled his listing due to "breaking the Rules". I then placed my actual claim with PayPal asking for a refund and so far the only action they took was to send a message to the seller to ask him to ship the camera even though I said I didn't want it. They said they'll give him 10 days to give him the benefit of the doubt. Pretty lame in my book but like I say I brought this on myself by being so stupid in the 1st place so I deserve it and will live with it.
