Default Am I Safe To Do This As The Buyer???

I contacted a seller on ebay about a card and we worked out a deal off ebay (paypal direct). When I received the card, there was a stain and a big scratch along the whole length of the card so i requested a refund. He said to send the card back to him and when he received it that he would refund the paypal transaction. Since this is off of ebay, am I protected at all? Or do I solely have to trust that the seller will refund my money when he receives the card?

You are not protected at all and actually if eBay heard about this they wouldn't be very happy (not that they would take any action). You are just going to have to trust the seller or be stuck with a damaged card.

Haha well this sucks. I think the route that i'll take is that i'll send it back to him and if he doesn't refund my money, I'll tell him that i'm on every sportscard forum and will completely trash his name and reputation and hope that works

If you took the payments as goods you could be ok, you are able to open a dispute of items not recieved as described in the resolution center of paypal.

If he don't give you the refund buy some cards from him on ebay & give him negative feedback. That might upset him a little.

Yea I also think that if through paypal & was as goods then you could just file a complaint with paypal. I'm not too sure though nor do I have that much trust in anybody!!!!

How much did you pay for the card? If it was a few bucks, take a chance sending it back. The worst that can happen is you lose the card and cash, but the flipside to that is the seller might just be a decent person and refund your dough.

What you should have done was file a dispute in the first place through paypal. Provide a DC to paypal and you get a refund easily.
