A cautionary tale but it raises many questions.
Which Ebay site (US, UK, FR or...) did you buy from?
Why were you not covered by Ebay "buyer protection"?
Did the seller have good feedback?
How did you pay - PayPal? Which has guarantees for non-delivery etc.
I have purchased quite a lot from Ebay and sold stuff as well - their protections seemed adequate until I read this. Some more detail (published) would be appreciated.
