I can't believe so many people would allow themselves to get duped like this, actually I shouldn't be surprised due to how successful several scams have been in the pasts (aka pyramid and ponzi schemes)

I got a $30 package from China last month that cost $30 in shipping...free shipping from this guy would have set off alarm bells for me.

I think that people basically say 'meh I'll just file a claim with paypal.' I would like to hear from those who purchased this and their experiences getting their money back.

paypal froze the guys account

got email

We recently learned that eBay removed the listing for the following
transaction. As a result, we have placed the transaction on hold until we
complete an investigation. We are contacting the seller to gather
additional transaction details. We will contact you once our investigation
is complete.

called pp seller being investigated for fraud

$ will be returned
