    When should I start getting worried?

    I bought an item off ebay ohh about a month ago or so. I then went on vacation and confirmed with the seller that it was OK if I pay after I go on vacation. The seller was relatively new and had several negative feedbacks, but all of them said he sent their money back because items were damaged. So I figured it would be OK to buy from him since even if it didn't work out I'd still get my money back. So I ended up buying the card for 115 dollars and some shipping costs. I eventually sent him the payment after I got back from vacation and we were talking pretty smoothly on a daily basis. He received it this past Friday and said he would give me a DC# when he sent the item out Monday. Well, this past weekend he now has the "no longer a registered user" tag on eBay. I have sent him several messages (which I am not even sure he is receiving--do you still receive messages from people on ebay when you arent a registered user?)asking if he sent it out and for the DC#. He has not responded yet and this is strange because he was usually very timely with his responses. Just wondering if I should start worrying about this yet or not and if anyone has experienced anything like this before and any other advice. Thanks, and I will keep everyone posted!

    And another note--I am only 15 and will be very disappointed if this doesn't work took a while for me to save up 115 and I had to sell a lot of my cards to do so :(

    Yes, that happened to me with a Michael Vick auto on ebay once. I paid and was still waiting for the card after about a week and a half so I went to ebay to send the seller a message but it said he was no longer a registered user. I didnt get the card or my money back. Same thing probably has happened to you, but you never know. Good luck, I hope everything works out for you

    What method of payment did you use? Did you make any attempt to get your money back?

    Paypal, but it was too late to get my money back and he was no longer ne ebay so it couldnt get it back out of his account

    Ask ebay for his info and try to email him. It also usually says his email when you get a message alert via ebay. Try to cancel your money order right away if no response. Sorry to hear about this.

    This just happened to me too. I paid with paypal and filed a disput after 3 weeks of not getting it. He was "no longer registered on ebay" also. He did have 100% pos feedback (over 200) and he sent my money back through paypal. I hope it all works out for ya.

    If I were you, I'd try my best to get in contact with him. However, your chances are slim of working anything out. I find it suspicious that someone would leave e-bay or some other site during a transaction. This usually means that they plan to rip you off. That's not always the case, but what else are you to think?
