    I paid for an item a member on here was selling and havent recieved any response in the past four days. I sent him a PM and emailed him without ever hearing back. So I have opened a dispute. Would a week be enough time without a response to escalate to a claim?

    Seven to 10 days is what I usually give, then I open up the gates of hell (me, a pissed off queen). :)

    same here...7 - 10 days. it's tough to be worried about something, but good to give the benefit of doubt for a few days. you never know..could be death in the family or something serious. if no response, then let 'er rip!

    I usually just escalate it the moment I get the dodgies.. not like it is going to hurt, if your hunch was right you win too, if it is a mistake on your part you definitely don't lose either.
