Finally someone willing to ship this thing instead of local pickup only. Zero feedback makes me a bit curious, but I can't bid right now anyway. Good luck to those of you in the game!

"Member since January 29, two thousand thirteen".

Yikes. At least ebay will refund your money up to a point --- but this will go beyond that point....

As long as you follow the precepts of the Buyer Protection Plan, you are *fully* protected by both eBay and Paypal.

Just be sure to document all stages of the purchase.

I'll second this, eBay Buyer Protection is incredibly helpful. I had a situation with an auction recently where the seller basically "took my money and ran" - no communication, never shipped my item, nothing. I sent him a couple messages through eBay, but when I got no response, I opened a case with eBay, and he had a week to respond to it - with a few hours to go on his deadline, he kicked it further up the chain to be reviewed. Within five minutes of that, the dispute was ruled in my favor and I had my refund.

Curiously, he had 100% positive feedback when the auction ended, but by the time this situation was resolved, mine was one of about six negatives on his record.

It's possible you weren't interacting with the actual seller. I often get phishing emails, forward them to "spoof at ebay.com". They want you to verify your ebay username and password (the links always go to a weird site).

Then, with your ID, they sell things like Superbowl tickets. By the time the victim starts getting complaints (thief changes the email address), victim complaining "But I wasn't SELLING anything!" --- the thieves are long gone.

Him escalating it gives him more time to receive bogus payments (and to vamoose).

Ebay NEVER solicits information; neither does paypal --- and paypal messages always use your REGISTERED NAME, never "Dear Paypal User"...

There are two things wrong with that auction:

1) Collector mentality.
2) That ridiculous arbitrary grading system.

To the lucky winner: Enjoy your $5,000 game! ^_^
