Default Ebay issue, Now I can't bust the boxes I received

So last week I bought 4 boxes of '12 Topps Chrome for a good price. The auction was for a lot of 2 boxes and I bought two lots.

I received the package today and low and behold....only 3 boxes and some packing peanuts. No packing slip and no 4th box. I've contacted the seller but now I have 3 boxes that I'm afraid to bust in case I'm forced to send the whole lot back.

I checked the sellers feedback and they have a 99.7% but there were a few negatives which made me uneasy. Multiple people having issue with shipments/items/etc and most claiming communication with the seller is poor or non-existant.

So not sure If I want to wait for them to NOT reply...or do I create a paypal resolution now.
I really want to bust these boxes and I dont want to send any back for a refund since: 1) its possible I could get screwed 2) I got a good price on the boxes

Any advice?

Do not bust. Wait for sellers response. Plenty of time to open a case if it is needed.

I was looking forward to this

EDIT: Seller is " bleacher-seats ". Despite having 57k+ feedback, the negatives kinda scare me.

Dont bust, seller could just claim you're lying...also with57k feedback he could easily have gotten the order mixed up. If someone received 4 boxes instead of 3 I doubt they will be honest!

I'd say with that much feedback and that large of a seller account, it was probably an honest mistake. With that being said, I would still not bust the boxes.

1st step..weigh the package and see if it matches the label..then weigh each box...if everything matches up this should give you some ammo should you need to fight it. I found most seller are honest and if it shows by weight that you only received 3 boxes they will correct the problem.

Thats a very good idea thanks! However, I dont see anywhere on the label where it indicates the weight. It was shipped usps priority in a regional rate A box. Tracking info online doesnt show anything but history. Also, the package was delivered to the mail center at my school around 1pm but the tracker still shows it as not leaving the local office.

I did take a picture showing the empty box with all 3 chrome boxes unopened, but I doubt that will do any good.

I have bought from this seller. I asked for invoices to combine shipping for about a week with no response. I eventually got sick of waiting and paid for both items individually at the same time. I got two packages 2 days apart. Both were packaged differently, and they were both just toploaded singles. The lone box will probably show in a day or two.

I am hoping it is in another box... But why would 3 be in one box and 1 in another? The lots were under one listing on ebay so I'm still not sure. If they were two similar but unique auctions then it would be different. I will message the seller 3x a day and give it until friday to receive the other. If not, its time to open a case since I'm not too confident due to what all the negatives feedbacks have said.

Update: so I received a box today with one Topps Chrome box in it. The thing is, I don't recognize the seller. I have no history of purchasing from them and have all my other purchases accounted for I believe.

Is it possible the seller didn't have a 4th box and had to purchase it and had them send to my address? The shipping address is from Michigan while the seller I got the 3 boxes from is far away in Illinois.

Hrmmmm

Not complaining by any means. I just like to know all the facts and be certain it wasn't an order I somehow lost track of. Won't be sure till I get home to check my records.

And will do @dustin.
