okies, here’s what I sent to the paypal resolution centre about 2 minutes ago:
I requested confirmation of shipping from the seller as I’d had no correspondnace and they were no longer registered on ebay. I gave them a little more leeway after they emailed me to apologise and state that a job offer over christmas had delayed things.
upon my next request for information I recieved this response:
“hi sorry they have not arrived ill glady send you the tracking number…
please forward a s.a.e with £1.00 to ensure a copy of the receipt (terms & condtitions bexs ebay home page)
please let me know if you would like to proceed
I then requested the tracking number they said they would gladly send me and they responded thusly:
“hi recorded delivery is only to ensure there is a signature at the end they gibe you nay updates to were it is..that special delivery and obvioulsy i would not pay an extra £5.00 for that facility as its no use to me all i can do is send the receipt so you can claim
please let me know what you would like to do
i have had no address given to send this sae, i have had no proof the item has been sent, just an empty promise of proof of posting – that they expect me to pay for! added to which I have no way of checking T&C for bexs ebay home page as they are no longer a registered user!
I would like either the goods i’ve paid for or a full refund of my money.
Sadly I’m expecting no joy from this and I’ve kissed my £24 order of swarovski crystals goodbye because this is the email I just recieved from paypal:
Dear Victoria Stringer,
Your Item Not Received dispute for the payment you sent to TERENCE NORMAN
WHALLEY on 27 Dec 2006 (Transaction 3GN387860A5548516) is now open.
By opening a dispute, you are communicating with the seller, not PayPal,
about this problem transaction. We will email you when your seller posts a
response in the Resolution Centre.
Since I’ve had no joy via email I think it’s highly unlikely I’ll recieve a friendly or businesslike response via paypal.
*sigh* and I was so enjoying the eBay experience *sniff* now I’m ready to distrust everything.
I guess I wouldn’t be quite as morose about it if i hadn’t started up with the cfs aches again, i don’t think this chocolate is really doing me that much good, I’m supposed to avoid caffiene and the effects of the 85% stuff are almost identical to when I drink coffee, I just feel a bit down right now – i’m tired, i hurt and some bastard has taken me for a ride financially – I hate when that happens.
