Saw a Joe Cole match worn shirt on ebay today so took a punt on it and to my surprise I won it for £23.05. Paid immediately, and the refund came back in a short while with the vendor saying it was damaged or out of stock.

I don't have a leg to stand on because this con man knows ebay will do nothing about it. He's from the Rossendale area. Beward of any future deals with this vendor, and if anyone sees this shirt up for sale on ebay again could they please let me know?

Obviously thought he would be getting a lot more and when it sold for the price of 3 packets of fags, maybe not so much a conman as more of some numpty with no idea how to sell on ebay and not put some sort of reserve on it perhaps?. Why not advise ebay even if they do nowt got to be worth an email to them surely after all they are not going to protect him like they do regular sellers that bring in good incomes for them are they?.
Just a thought that's all. Wave

I had a similar instance a number of years back Leslie when I won 5 Everton 46-7 homes for an opening bid of £19.99.

Seller refudned my money saying he'd lost one of them, the lying arse, and he couldn't sell them as incomplete. I emailed him and said I'd take the four for the same price anyway and didn't even get a reply.

Gave ebay all the details and they didn't even reply. Won't bother them again, their "customer service" as we all know is non existent.
