O.K....keep in mind that I am new to this E-Bay thing. I sold a purse. Buyer said it was not as described. I refunded the money because E-Bay sent a message saying, ultimately, that it would be better to just go ahead and refund her. But I still have not received my items. So now what? Am I just s.o.l.? Does E-Bay refund my money if I never receive my items? Or has the buyer hit the jackpot and received free merchandise? What do I do? Please help.

You should NEVER refund before receiving your goods back!
Ebay will do nothing to cpmpensate you for this mistake you made; you will have to just hope the buyer will return it. (really, they have no motivation to, now)
Try to keep up positive communication with them.

I don't believe that. Can you quote the pertinent phrase that mislead you to do this?

Actually, the E-Bay message did suggest that I go ahead and refund her, in so many words, before I received my items. In my head I knew I should have waited, but, like I said, being new to this, I thought I was doing the right thing. I know better now though and it will never happen again. But I have to take responsibility. The buyer lied the whole way through so I should have known better.
