    Can you do anything if people rip you off?
    I ordered a pair of shoes off that shit like a week ago and it hasn't come. The person's shit says they are based out of Canada. I emailed him and said give me a tracking number and he gave me some ETS express out of China or some shit and finally after trying to navigate a foreign web page I was able to find the tracking part and it says the AIR BILL number or some shit wasn't able to be found.

    He said mail him back if I don't get it by Monday or Tuesday.

    My question is, if this guy doesn't plan on giving me my shoes can I get him in trouble? Ofcourse there has to be some kind of thing I can do because if not people would just rip people off on Ebay for tons of loot and never send them their merchandise.

    He has pretty much all positive feedback except for two neutrals about people not receiving their shoes until late and one about not receiving them and the guy wrote they were lost in shipping and gave a refund.

    I was thinking maybe he ran out of the particular shoe I wanted and instead of telling me he just has been putting it off until he can get the shoe and send me it.

    I am pretty fucking mad. I just want my shit.

    I always say, give me your address and I will send you a cheque, then when I have it I use paypal so I know I can find them and fuck them up.

    You can file a claim with paypal, and it will freeze his account. You can also email EBAY and see what they can do, I really am not too sure about this situation. Just wait a day or two more, sometimes shit takes a while to get there

    if he has all positive feedback, he's probably not screwing you. if the shoes are being shipped from china, it might take a minute. calmly write dude and express your concern, ask why the shoes are coming from china, and tell him the tracking number he gave didnt work. give him a chance to make it right before you involve a bunch of other shit. since you paid with paypal, you're covered. you have a month to file a claim with them, so give it another week and if the shoes arent here, and he hasent offered a refund of some kind, then contact both paypal and ebay. for the time being though, just relax. people take their feedback ratings really seriously, and dude isnt going to risk fucking it up over the cost of a pair of shoes.

    Sometimes people's accounts get hi-jacked. criminals look for accounts with a lot of positive feedback and then take over the account. you never really know. go on google and you will find plenty of stories dealing with things of this nature.

    Aight I'll give it a little time, I just dont trust a lot of these online people. The only reason I ever deal with them is to get shit I couldn't find locally.

    Yeah I have known people to hack into others accounts, change the info and intercept a little loot, then change everything back and vanish.

    right, but there are millions of transactons that happen daily. you have just about as good of a chance of being struck by lightening, as having that happen to you.
