Not sure if these 2 iron panels with engraved mirrored pieces are parts of a gate or transom or just decorative panels meant to be hung on a wall. The mirrored pieces do appear old (1930s?). Not sure what to make of this. They are 4' tall. Your opinions wanted! Thanks!

There are so many different Fenton patterns, manufacturing dates, etc. that it makes my head hurt.  I recently acquired this Fenton green hat vase and need help in regard to:  1) Actual pattern name or what it would be called--Fenton green (emerald) cased glass?;  2) Manufacturing timeframe; and 3) Even though I know the cased glass MIGHT be white based on the fact that it is laid over a green glass, the cased glass really has more of a gray or blue/gray color to it, so is the cased glass actually white or could it be an experimental with a gray casing?  It measures approximately 3" in overall height. HELP!!!!!

POTTERY - Need help with Blue Willow Mark

When I acquired this pitcher or vase, I was pretty sure it might be Blenko.  However, according to characteristics of Blenko, it should have a pontil mark on the bottom, which it doesn't.  However, the color seems to match up with Blenko colors produced, the bubble pattern is similar to theirs, the design seems correct, and this piece is pretty transparent.  Could it be Blenko designed by Wayne Husted?  The vase measures 8" in height, 6.5" approximately in width, and 3" in depth.  Any help would be appreciated.

Long shot I realize, as the mark is anything but defined...the age is not in question, nor the art, simply looking for a mark ident. Appears to be two ..bears upright holding a shield, I can make out the number 685, but beyond that it is too bled out to sort out, Regards, V76IMG_4742.JPGIMG_4743.JPG

mark on balsa wood box

Can anyone tell me about this? Is it valuable?

I looked on eBay under tapestries with Middle Eastern and saw single squares, but none stitched together & none with camels and elephants & horses.

This is a middle east tapestry, correct?

Judging by the little moth holes I'm assuming it's old - does that make it valuable?

Any help in decribing it or what to list it as would be greatly appreciated.

Good morning everyone.



New to eBay Chit Chat & More ~ EVERYONE WELCOME!

I have this bracelet I can't figure out. The metal is very oxidized, was nearly black,,thought it was copper due to its darkness but it is silver in color and obviously has a high copper content judging by the darkness of the metal before polishing. The settings are what I am unsure of - they clink like glass - when you look at the backs, though, it looks poured, and at the same time, enameled - there are speckles in the surface along with a fingerprint in one of them. Does anyone know what this technique is? Thanks --

Technique on old bracelet?

I know it isn't antique, but I'm wondering if there's a way to figure out the time frame for this rug. I'm thinking the colors make it "newer," but I don't know how new. The previous owner was recently moved to an assisted living home & she had very electic tastes, including southwest items.


I borrowed the book "Navajo Rugs...." by Don Dedera from the library, looked at a bunch of videos on YouTube & researched the Internet, but still unsure about the age of the rug.


The rug is a beauty & in pristine condition. It's about 62" x 48". I do love the colors, especially the teal /turquoise around the border. Any thoughts about age, or anything else would be very much appreciated.

I was looking through my TL user file directory, and noticed that old photos are still saved in the databases for items long-ago exported and deleted from the program.  Is this something I should look into fixing, or should I ignore the orphaned entries?


I haven't had any major problems with TL - just the normal hiccups, and a few random crashes.  I certainly don't want to mess it up, with the holiday selling season just starting.


A few examples:


1.  A brown creamer sold earlier this year.  Listed exported and deleted from TL in March:




2.  Crystal lamp parts sold in 2012 - listing exported and deleted from TL in June 2013.




3.  These owl salt & pepper shakers were sold in 2014.  Listed exported & deleted from TL in July 2014.  The glass goblets in this same folder are current items - which seems rather weird.




4.  This chicken dish lid was sold sometime in 2010.  I can't find its listing record, but I'm assuming it was exported & deleted that year or early 2011.




5.  These little glass dishes have been floating around my TL databases since at least 2009.  I had completely forgotten about them, and can't find their exact sale date.  I'm guessing they were sold sometime in 2009 - I do remember now that it was during my first year selling (which started summer of 2008).




Like I said, just a few examples, out of many more not shown.  Also, I found multiples of several of the items pictured scattered about in various folders in both the "iansnanatexaslisting" database folder and the "user000" datase folder.  For example, the owl shakers were in 4 different folders, all with different numbers and dates.


Any adivce?  Thanks for your time.

returning my purchase



I recently bought an iPhone that was advertised as clean and clear for activation on the Sprint network, was a white 32gb iPhone 5C in great condition other than minimal use, and had a clean ESN/MEID ... The only thing true about the phone was the color and the cosmetic condition of it! The phone was only 16GB and it was reported lost/stolen when I went to the Sprint store. Smiley Sad This was literally the third phone I'd purchased on eBay that had some kind of defect, but the other sellers quickly resolved the problem and I was refunded. However, with this latest purchase, the seller has been extremely slow to respond to any messages and comes across as anything but concerned about the defective device. (For the record, I finally found a phone on Craigslist and met the seller AT a Sprint store where he stayed and waited until I could solidly confirm that the phone was in great shape! --- I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a used phone btw, too... hate to say it but after three bad attempts, it's frustrated me to the point of no return <no pun intended> as far as buying used cell phones here).... Anyway, I ended up paying $175 for a beautiful white iPhone 5S 64gB - less than I paid for a 16gig 5C (which was falsly advertised as a 32gig with a bad MEID! Crazy! lol)


Anyway, back to the problem, I requested a refund and the seller slowly and begrudgingly accepted. I was offered a shipping label (economy) but I wanted to get my refund faster so I purchased a flat rate expedited shipping label from the post office. Unfortunately, I never did get to the post office the day I created that label (and subsequently added its tracking number to the refund/not as described case I'd opened here on eBay. 


I did manage to get the item shipped and have the new tracking number. The item has arrived according to the USPS tracking number I have, but there doesn't seem to be any place to put the tracking number on the case details. I did add a "note" under the 'purchased items' section of my account but I think that area may just be for my own use - not sure if anyone else sees it. I also sent a message to the seller providing this information to him. Of course he hasn't responded in any way and I only have my tracking number to go by. The case still shows the old tracking number and nothing has escalated, though the device was returned to him at 2PM Sat Oct 3, 2015. 


So where does this put me with my refund status? If the incorrect tracking number is in the case details and there is no way to update that information, am I still protected my eBay's guarantee? I paid nearly $200 for this phone and I'm feeling like I'm being ignored by the seller - and when I go to help/contact on eBay, I have to go through so many steps that all just lead to an article or 'helpful video' ... nothing helps with the problem I have and I don't know how to get ahold of eBay. Can someone please advise me on this? I need to be sure I get my refund and without guidance from 'the powers that be' in eBay, I fear I won't get the refund - and even worse, the seller will have made a profit off of nothing and could likely list the same phone again!


I'm just frustrated and need help. Thanks to anyone who has any advice. 


Here's some screen shots to better explain the problem. I've covered any information about the seller for their protection at this point. Also I added my own descriptive notes in red. Hopefully this helps explain better than my rambling! Thanks again!

I believe this is older Delft since it is definitely handpainted not transfer ware. It is 15" across. The mark is kind of smudged. Just wondering if anyone has seen this before? Thanks, all! And by the way, I looked in Kovels but with the mark being illegible, it's impossible to know what to look for.

I do custom vinyl decals or stickers and I like to send a pic of the custom item completed prior to listing to make sure the buyer is satified with there product. But I take a pic and upload it as a attchment in the message section it shows or of proportion and does not show the image as it was taken.. Tried lowering the size of pic but it keeps doing it... When ever the buyer would click the picture the overlay appears but photo is not correct and show improper size..... I want the buyer to be able to see the decal as it looks not out of porportion... gives a false decsciption when the pic is falsly accuate..... I also tried numerous browsers with the same outcome.....

So for some reason usps has lost or sent to the dead mail center about 5 of my items and one of which was returned to me. So I printed a new shipping label and gave it to someone to ship off for me today but just now going through my old postage labels I was trying to void the old ones when I accidentally voided the new one!!! That and I'm desperately trying to pay my ebay fees while I do a weird transfer bank account/paypal balance thing with my paypal and it keeps getting declined and I'm losing my mind! Now they've sent me this e-mail talking about missuse of labels or fraudulent something and I don't know what to do!!! I've e-mailed ebay I've emailed usps I've emailed paypal I'm running out of options. Heres the forwarded e-mail. So far I've paid like 40 dollars or so on shipping for this one item between what I paid at the actual usps office and thru ebay  :-(

I have bought a suspiciously cheap tablet today (item 121775582570), and the listing was soon completely removed from eBay.


I would like to cancel the purchase because I am pretty sure it's a scam, but when I go to eBay's online Customer service/resolution center it doesn't work.


If I go through the steps shown on the help page (Buying -> After your purchase -> Cancel a purchase), it shows a list of items I bought, but as soon as I select it, it shows a message claiming I am "not buying that item". The software is probably "confused" since the item doesn't exist anymore (although it's weird eBay allows a listing to be completely obliterated after selling it to more than 100 people?)


eBay customer service page claims I haven't bought the item, right after I select it from the list of bought items


My Paypal indicates that the payment was processed, and, the item is still shown in my Purchase history (but it has no image anymore).


What am I doing wrong?

hello everyone,


Recently i would like to purchase a skirt from 7 for all mankind, and i found this skirt pretty cute but doubt if it's authentic after reading some authenticating articles at the forum.

1, from front image, cannot tell whether it's fake or not as the button at the center front is written"SEVEN FOR ALL MANKIND" ->forum said auth should have these wordings.

2, the last image is the most suspicious one as the center back logo print looks too rubberish, the i also read that if the logo shows "TM" instead of "A CIRCLED R", it is a fake.

3, I have messages the seller and the seller has guaranteed this skirt is authentic..

could somebody help me to authenticate this skirt is really from 7 for all mankind?? thanks!!

Bidding & Buying question

I purchased a lovely porcelain handpainted portrait in a Gutta Percha frame at an estate sale.  The potrait is marked on the back with very faded pencil and a red stamp mark.  The markings are so faded that they are illegible.  I'm hoping someone may recognize the mark on back despite its fading.  The frame is dated 1855 but unsure if the painting dates to the same timeframe.  Thanks for any help you can lend.

EAPG Paneled Celery Vase ID Help

I just recently purchase a highboy that I intend to keep indefinitely.  The problem I have is whether or not I should refinish it myself or have a pro do it depending if its rare.  Im pretty sure it was designed by Albert Parvin; however, there is little to no info on his pieces to go on other than previously sold items on 1stdibs so im on the fence.


Major Issues:


1. Previous owner was a picker and threw on PU haphazardly in order to sell quickly (DRIP MARKS)

2. The LEFT cabinet door has wood epoxy that need to be recovered with veneer

3. The hinge joints are not original on the LEFT cabinet door (already ordered replacements)


Other than that its in good condition: sturdy, light scratching that can we sanded out, dings that I can live with


If its not something rare/desireable, then ill do the work myself. Any info on the piece or opnions would be gratly appreciated .

Why is ebay charging me so much?

Hi - I know this is probably a long shot but I have an older belt buckle with a faux scrimshaw insert with appears to have a signature or initials on the bottom.  If anyone can give me any help or point me in some direction, I would really appreciate it!


Thanks in advance for your help, Mary

So, every morning it does this..and I'm not sure why. It says 31 even though I have 96 listings. Later on in the day, it will say 96. Why does it always say 31 in the mornings?


Selling question

I didn't win Item number: 252101594461 (Reserve not met) even though I was the highest bidder. After auction finished, item was relisted.

Why is like that?

New to eBay Chit Chat & More ~ EVERYONE WELCOME!

I acquired this chair at an estate sale, as I was struck by its beauty and uniqueness. It was made by the now-defunct Trouvailles Inc, Watertown MA. Can somebody tell me anything about it? For instance, the era it represents and what you would call its design?

Looking for Info on Repro Chair

Found this today. It is LARGE and stunning in person. I found 2 comparables. One here on eBay, sold item # 151817728485. The seller says "MONET BOOK PIECE, ONE OF THE FAMOUS BRITHERS PREMIER HAUTE COUTURE PIECES."  I Googled Brithers Premier and found nothing so I am wondering if anyone might know what the seller is talking about or if they know what book this may be in. I found the same necklace on betsy but no mention of books or Brithers. 


I am also wondering if this is 80's, 90's or even newer?


Here are some pics.  Thanks!

I recently (about a week & a half ago) won an item and paid for it right after with an eBay gift card.  The seller just contacted me and said that the payment is still pending in their paypal account.  Under the transaction on my paypal it says: paypal.png

Sorry if I am out of the loop, but I just went to mail a "medium flat rate package" and the cost was up over a dollar increase. Did I miss something?? Did the USPS prices go up October 1, 2015 or is it a glitch in Ebay's system!! I hope the latter, postage is already killing sales!

USPS cost increase? October 1, 2015???

I was looking over my seller page and there was a link to view Paypal transaction.  I followed the link that led me to my Paypal account and said a buyer had been refunded $119 for something that I had received positive feedback on and there was never a request for a refund.  To make matters worse,  the item was shipped to Italy.  I have tracking numbers showing the item got to Kentucky and then it shows it was undeliverable in Italy.  However no one notified me and buyer 's feedback is "Great customer care; fast shipment; excellent!!!!!!!"


Ebay says there was never a case opened so they can't do anything about it.  Paypal says the money was refunded.  My Paypal account says it was refunded.  Paypal has backed me up twice on this.  Ebay refuses to acknowledge what happened because there was never a case opened.  I have spent three hours on the phone today with Ebay and couple yesterday with Ebay and Paypal.  I don't know what else to do.  Please help.

Ebay Refunds by Mistake Help

 So my "buyer " made a counteroffer which I accepted then shipped-Ooops the guy thinks I tricked him into purchasing by shipping before he paid. OH BOY! I tried to explain that his good feedback let me trust him and that mailing quick was just a service and convienience. The contract was made by HIM and he tricked himself by not knowing what all this fancy bidding was all about. I told him that my deals are never tricky and that all he had to do is return the purchase. So now my good deed has been thoroughly punished and the poor guy still maintains that I tried to trick him and so " I was going to buy it but now I never will" OMG is there some sort of informational candy gram that could gently educate a buyer without incuring wrath and negative feedback. I always accept returns-  no  matter what. I just don't want this guy to continue to misthink the bidding/offer process and hurt himself or others. What say you?

Selling question

I sold a human hair wig recently to a buyer.

I had a conversation with them through eBay messages for an ongoing of four days before they decided to purchase.

I answered all their questions regarding the item and even the price and whatnot.


They decided to purchase two days ago, the 29th of September and I shipped the wig.

The tracking states that it left my local USPS facility and its on the way to the destination.


I received a message today from the buyer stating that they want to return the item when they get home which is on Monday apparently, for a refund due to them being in the hospital after a miscarriage and needing the money for medical bills. Call me rude or whatnot, but I honestly do not believe this story.

I stated that I do not provide refund/returns in large size font  in bold lettering at the bottom of the description along with on the listing.

I know the horror stories of eBay siding with the buyer and whatnot, but this isn't a case where they don't like the item or the item isn't as described.


I am aware of the buyer may leave me negative feedback, which in this case I honestly do not care because that was the last item I had for sale and I don't plan to purchase or sell on eBay anymore; so please do not mention the risk of receiving negative feedback and whatnot.


I'm planning to message them back kindly stating that I do not accept refunds/returns and that I directed them to read my description (which includes the large bold words of "no refunds/returns" before their purchase.


Is there a better way to handle this kind of buyer?

Thank you everyone in advance.

Have a bag that someone wants to return.

Ebay giving away defects like Haloween Candy makes me hesitant to accept it. 

How can a bag "not Fit" ? The strap on the Coach is not adjustable - yet a 21" drop was stated in the listing. It is a cross  body bag.


This bag is becoming like the plague to me. This will be the second return. The last one claimed it smelled like cigarettes - impossible it was in A/C storage for 5 years. 

Seriously wondering if ebay is worth the effort. 


To return ? Do I get a defect? 



Fashion discussion

So, here's what happened:

I bought a 3DS XL on eBay that was maufacturer refurbished, still-in-the-box. I got it, was very pleased, everything was as described, and I left positive feedback.


A month went by, and then yesterday I started having problems with some of the device's features; so i called Nintendo for tech support. They told me that my device+account had been banned because the person who originally bought the 3DS from Nintendo had filed a chargeback! Therefore my device technically hadn't been paid for, so they considered it "stolen" and required me to pay for the system myself in order to lift the ban. I did, and the total came to $135, which is $5 more than i paid for it in the first place.


As you may have guessed, i'm not too happy about the situation at all, and i want to get a refund, but i don't know how to proceed!!!  I DON'T want to return the 3DS, since I've already put a lot of time and expense into it.  The seller himself doesn't accept returns, but if i try to file a return through the eBay Money Back Guarantee system, I'm afraid that i'll get roped into sending the system back. Plus, i don't know how to proove that any of this really happened! Can anybody steer me in the right direction?????

To return ? Do I get a defect? I have had to fight defects I have been given - one said they did not receive a package - I had a signed receipt from two weeks before they complained. My error was using lower cae letter in the tracking.  So amidst clearing it up in 10 minutes and guess what the guy had a signed receipt I still got a defect. Then there was the alleged buyers remorse - smell " issue. Still have one because a package was knocked about while being shipped by USPS and a candlestick broke- The buyer did not inform the post office and accused me of sending him a broken item. The box had a hole in it. He did not report it to the post office and sent it back in another box. I feel so burned. Have sepnt at least 4 hours with ebay getting this off. Lost my Power Seller too. Sigh

Averaging about 1 NON payer  per week and the real holidays are not even here yet.  This is Getting really to be a silly site to post anything on anymore.  It's becoming the worst I seen it in 15 years of me on Ebay. .   I spend more time waiting and relisting and Blocking People.    2nd U should be able to post Neg. Feedback for Dead Beat Buyers.  It would cut down on all this wasted time and effort.  Its getting to the Point I would rather sell elsewhere and get better response.  U can post  a bad feedback to them for not completing the sale before UPI ends  But, no one really sees it cause they all show up Positive feedbacks.   Each year this is getting worse and worse.    Then  if the buyer decides to wait to the very last day of the EBAY UPI  The seller is still expected to quickly get the item out  within 1 day to still stay a TOP rated seller?????   After waiting a total of  4 to 5 days or more???     Otherwise, the seller will not  get the 20% savings and discounts.  The seller really stands to loose here. Basically at the buiyers beck in calls whenever they decide they want to pay???      In My Eyes DEAD BEATS are DEAD BEATS.   All U can do Is Block them for Not paying.  They can Open up another Ebay site or through a friend in an Hour or so.  MY BLOCKED list  is about 100 or so now and where does it end??    Or should I say How much more can I put in there before I can't anymore??         **********     NOTE:      ****** Thanks On all the Gr8 Responses!!!    I do always let Ebay do the UPI for me. Its Automatic.   Just wears thin on me after while.  And Most times I already repost the ITEM before it closes.  If I hear nothing in 2 to 3 days which I post in each of my auctions. Sorry your loss.  Blocked and reposted.     I do send the buyer 1 to 2 messages about payment just before the UPI starts. Once it starts most of the time your item is reposted and your blocked.  I do not have time anymore to keep waiting 5 plus days anymore. If U bid on it and won it And do not reply to me at all in 3 days its history. for the buyer.  There has to be some sort of end to bidding and not paying.

I recently received a coupon in my eBay inbox for $20 off a purchase of $100 or more for being a loyal eBay customer during its 20th aniversary. I bid on an item and by the time the auction was over, the coupon had expired! It was literally only valid for four (4) days. How is that supposed to be a eBay doing me a favor? Instead, I now need to cancel a transaction because I cannot afford the product- which is going to anger the seller- and I am angry because I am not getting to use the coupon and I am afraid the seller is going to leave me negative feedback. I've been a member for 14 years with 100% feedback as a buyer and seller and the eBay customer support team didn't seem to sympathize with me at all. I am disappointed in eBay.

       hi all,


                  has anyone noticed an Automatic Payment is submitted to PayPay when the "PAY NOW !" logo is clicked on

                 on the "You have won " 'page


                 Even if the   Buyer HAS'NT proceeded any further with the Transaction at that point in time.


               I could'nt work out how this was happenin ( at least 4 times )   I really started to consider ..... am I goin' nutz !


             And then, I was informed by eBay / PayPal  that I had opted for a Auto / Turbo Payment method .   ehhh !


             To my knowledge....... HOBBY SEARCH (Japan ) was the ONLY Business that I had opted for this Payment Method .


            I have deactivated the Payment Method much to the dismay of HOBBY SEARCH...coz it is a great Payment Method

            and  as I trust  them explicitly  to carry out  a courteous  Transaction.


            And  NO !.....  Buyers CANNOT nominate who they want to have the PayPal Automatic Payment System   just who applied to . !

Then contact the seller again with the name and info of the person I spoke to at the manufacturing company so, they could  in turn call the company and verify what I had reported ( to the seller).

sales tax

Well, I finally bought and received an item that doesn't match the photos (probably due to drop shipping--another reason to go with the little guy).  The photo in the listing is totally different design on the t-shirt than received.  I would like a full refund--item price + shipping because I never would have ordered and paid for this if the photo was of the t-shirt that I actually received.  I ask of the sellers on here, should my first step be to do a "return this item" in my purchase history indicating "photo doesn't match item"?  Also, should I add a photo of the item I received when first making the return request?  It's obvious it's different.


The reason I ask, is that I am still not real clear on the returns process.  By requesting a return through eBay (by "return this item" drop down tab in my purchase history), is this just sending the request to the seller directly (similar to "contact member")?  And then if they don't respond or refuse a refund, only then will eBay open up a case if I want to pursue the return?


I very much want to know the specifics since I'm a new seller.  I've yet to have a return request, but I know that's just a matter of time.  I'd like to understand the process better.  What I've read here indicates that the way to request a return is through the "return this item" form, but before using it I want to make sure that it is just a way to contact the seller with your request.  After all, that does seem like the courteous first step.  


It seems like eBay is wanting to take over the whole returns process for sellers.  Does a returns request automatically put a ding on your record if it's done this way?


Would love to hear input from other sellers about ebay's new return policies.  


IN more searching found this, which really clarified things:  "Starting in February 2016, sellers will only receive a returns-related defect if eBay has to help resolve a returns issue, and the resolution is in favor of the buyer. The buyer’s reason for returning an item will no longer count as a defect as long as you successfully resolve a return request with the buyer without asking eBay for help."   


So, before Feb 2016, if one of my buyers goes to eBay first instead of contacting me about a return, does that mean I will get an automatic defect?

Emailing/Contacting Bidders

How do i report seller fraud? Seller listed multiple auctions for a splatoon Amiibo 3-Pack. 7 other buyers besides myself have already left negative feedback. The seller provided all of us with bogus invalid USPS tracking numbers and isn't responding to any of the buyers that also won an auction for the same item from this seller. I opened a dispute yesterday in the resolution center, but it says that I must wait 7 days (until October 8th) before I can escalate the claim to have ebay investigate. No response from sellers paypal email address either. Is there anything else I can do prior to October 8th? I realized something  was wrong once I saw 7 negative feedbacks that were recently left for this seller, all with the same complaint...bogus tracking number, item not received, and they too won an auction from this seller for the Splatoon amiibo 3-pack. Does the paypal resolution center require that you wait just as long? Will ebay or paypal do something sooner if i call them? I've been buying on ebay for over ten years and as many problems that  have come up, I've never dealt with this before. Unfortunately this will end up being the 1st negative feedback that i will have ever had to leave for a seller. Heck...almost 90 transactions and I've only even ever left 1 neutral feedback.


Please advise as to what I can do without having to wait a week.

Report seller fraud?

Quick question. Long story short ... I sold a Android Samsung Galaxy Note 4 recently, that the unlock request was approved by AT&T at which I was given the unlock code. As per the instructions attached to the email containing the unlock code all that needed to be done was to insert the SIM card for the carrier you wish to use phone through and then type in the unlock code. After buyer recieved phone, she stated I not only gave her a false unlock code (I even screenshoted email showing her the code directly from ATT), she also stated I falsly sold the phone as unlocked (it was unlocked she just had to type a code in after inserting SIM card). She opened a return and then she closed the return herself stating she obtained a code herself. THEN today sent me a message stating she would not be leaving me postitve feedback because i didnt appoligize, after she gave me the opportunity to do so - for the record I did appoligize for the inconvenience she came across. Sooo she left me negative feedback - my first negative feedback ever! Is this something i could request the feedback to be revoked or would eBay side with her on this matter?! Thanks !!

The item still wasn't updated to shipping  Sent another message... no reponse. Their feed back has two stars - of course positive  Listing dtates 1-2 day shipping from sale.  what can I do? its now been 5 days.

"Bought it Now" No communication from Buyer

Just purchased PS4 console unopened for $108. Friends tell me that's way to good to be true and sure enough,ebay took the listing down,but not before all 9 were sold. Ebay sent me a message that the seller account may be compromised. The item is marked as "shipped " but of course, no tracking. Any thoughts about my chances of actually getting my purchase would be appreciated.

Possible fraudulent listing

My eBay bucks disappeared.  Were they applied to a purchase, or did they just go to waste?
