The issue in GetHuman5781261's own words
I purchased an item yesterday on eBay (Transaction ID * *W******XX******R), Item: Felco F* Pruner High Performance Pruning Shear!! Item number: ************ from phymo-****. Total cost $**.**. Less than * hour later I received a message from eBay to inform me the seller was not a registered user and eBay removed this seller from their site. I no longer have a way of tracing this seller as he*she (phymo-****) was removed from eBay under suspicious circumstances.*I contacted PayPal within an hour of receiving eBay's message to cancel the payment. PayPal opened and soon closed the case within a few hours as if the transaction was fine? Sounds like fraud, and the staff at PayPal has failed at protecting me after I requested their help. I sent them another detailed email, due to the the limited options, I filed the case under an unauthorized payment (seller was an unauthorized seller).*I followed up by contacting my credit card company yesterday. The credit card company can see the transaction though advised I contact eBay. eBay has acknowledge this is an unregistered user and removed the seller. Again, this is possible fraud and should be pursued immediately instead of waiting the ** days under these circumstances to see if the seller delivers the item. This seller should have never have been listed active on eBay. Illegitimate seller, fraudulent seller, this transaction should be refunded immediately. *eBay has a difficult site to navigate to connect to a real person. I am now on my second day of trying to resolve this issue. Please advise.
