Lovely. Was that sent thru ebay ?

this is the message I got sometime in the last couple hours.

What the heck!! Why!! No Who the hell is that. Oo christ. Dont worry about it. Im getting another device so no one will be able to hack me or whatever that garbage is. I am so sorry about the mistake. - chisox2005

To which I replied

That is very strange. Please send me the item with tracking.

ps - the 150 was a test ....

Friday - got tracking

Monday AM - tracking had not updated.

Monday Lunchtime - ebay sends me a message specifically asking me to call regarding the email I forwarded (in OP)
Ebay rep is clueless as to why I'm calling. Explain. Put on hold for 10 minutes. Ebay rep gets back on line and assures me they will do everything in their power and if tracking hasnt updated by tuesday to file claim.

Monday Night - tracking shows as accepted. (did ebay actually harangue the guy? hmm)

Wednesday - Item arrives!

As much as I'd LIKE to leave a neg based on the initial email,
item arrived as described and fairly quickly,
so dont see how I can do anything but leave a pos.

At least you guys know what you MIGHT be dealing with.

thanks again for the advice!

I'm glad it all worked out for you but I think I would have told him to take that card and shove it after the original message. I just don't believe his story,but you got the card and that's the main thing. Just my 2 cents...

I agree...I don't believe his story of someone "hacked" into his account... what does the so call "hacker" have to gain from this?? If you really wanted the card and agree, wouldn't you have send the money to the same paypal account??

Unless he just wants to mess with the seller... in any case glad you got the card, but something is still fishy....

I do not believe for one second there was a hacker.
Why would a hacker ask me to send paypal to the seller ?

I took XL5's advice and wrote to seller thru ebay and effectively provided the hacker excuse for seller. This allowed the seller to pretend that he didnt send that message and gave him a chance to do the right thing while minimizing the confrontation.

I think sellers true colors are shown in his reply to bjs852

Honestly, I don't think I would leave feedback at all. You can't technically leave a negative or a neutral, because you don't have "proof" he did anything wrong...but this knob doesn't deserve a positive (and you can't leave a false positive).

Eh...it certainly wasn't a positive experience. I would say neutral out of principle - can't just leave it alone and not let others on eBay know about it.

Aside from that, I wouldn't give the tool any more of your time or energy.

You guys are crazy
Metdude, you have always been on the level but come on....
this person lacks integrity and was willing to rip you, period

Neg in a heart beat "Seller tried to extort additional funds,but claimed he was hacked"

No, you do an injustice in not warning others, period
