Read eBay's terms and conditions (which, by the way, you agreed to with every account you signed up for).

If you break the terms and conditions (which selling intangible items is), then you lose their buyer protection. Once you've broken the terms, you aren't allowed to create a second account to circumvent the suspension - doing so it another breach of the terms and conditions. Therefore, legally, the guy could have shipped you a brick, and eBay would have no legal responsibility.

Not that I believe a word of this thread.

And Squilly.... I'm not trying to give you hard time (not too hard a time). I am enjoying bantering with you. If I actually had a problem with this I would not be participating in this thread at all. For me, this is just banter.... We were all young once, and we have all tried to scam someone or some company. I got a free phone once - though at that time the only choices were wired kind. At the time I though I had "won"...now I realize it was just a scam. Oh well... live and learn.
I should be whistling a lot right now....

Well, this is unfortunate.

Not sure I understand the whistling reference. And too bad about the appeal.

The life of an inventor is beset with setbacks, or something pompous sounding like that...

An inventor can never inflate him/herself too much. How else are they supposed to drum up funding?!

I messaged the seller. Since he lives relatively close to me, I asked if he would meet me to refund it...
Also going to call eBay and force them to reopen the case.

That sucks...

I stopped using ebay for expensive things a few years back when:

a) I got scammed out of an iphone

b) Sold a bass amp only to have ebay/paypal hold my money until AFTER the buyer received the amp...

I've dealt with many MANY Craigslist transactions before. I don't expect this to be bad. He hasn't responded back anyways. Besides, if someone really wants me dead that bad, they'll jump through fire to do so.

No one expects something bad to happen... otherwise they wouldn't be there/doing-that in the 1st place. You're 18, you're not immortal... just be careful. Expect the unexpected....
