You should have contacted the seller and called them out on their BS.

They probably just wouldn't have replied and hoped someone else would be stupid enough in the meantime to fall for it...

Or given the classic "I'm just listing it for a friend. I didn't know." excuse

I always wonder how these scams work. The buyer pays, the seller obviously doesn't ship (or ships something else), then the buyer puts in a claim with EBay. I assume the seller is long gone at that point (looks like they make profiles like this just to pull off one scam anyway), so EBay Buyer Protection must take the hit. This has to happen a lot, I would think. Shouldn't EBay have better defenses against this by now?

A few years ago a member here on the forum recognized photos of my Murphy R9 in an eBay from a seller out of China. I contacted eBay and the listing was removed quickly.
