I had this one guy who I bought a game from once. I paid for the game as soon as I clicked the buy now button and sent an email in regards to how he was going to package it (as it was a brittle case). No reply and I waited for it to be marked as dispatched, I even sent emails asking if he was going to dispatch it. The guy didn't reply for 2 weeks, and I didn't receive the game either. The delivery time was pretty quick and I noticed people who had purchased after me had received their stuff so I left negative feedback (I may have been a little hasty, I dunno) saying that I wasn't getting my game and that the dude wasn't replying to my messages and I wasn't happy. Next thing, the guy replies (after 2 weeks), calling me rude because I gave him negative feedback, then said he'd actually sent it (by airmail, despite living in London, not sure if he was taking the mickey). How the hell was I supposed to know that he had dispatched it when he hasn't even told me? For all I know he could have been taking my money and not giving me what I paid for. So I wait for however long it took, it seemed like weeks, and I still got no game. So I asked him what had happened, and he said it must have been 'lost in the post' and that he couldn't give me a refund because 'PayPal were holding his accounts' or something like that, I'm not sure what that meant. He said I'd have to open a case through eBay. But the worst bit was, he said he was 'still disappointed about the negative feedback'... I haven't used eBay long, but I was thinking 'What the hell? Even if I gave him negative feedback before I knew he'd dispatched the item, then surely if I don't get the item I ordered then that means negative feedback?!? isn't that the whole point of eBay?!?'... So I opened up a case, explaining what he had said. The dude never replied to the case I opened, despite it being his suggestion, so after the time went by I just reported it to eBay and thankfully I got my money. I then went and bought the same item off a better seller for much cheaper. So I won in the end.
I still wonder if he ever sent it.
