Hi, As much as I despise Logic, I thought I should probably upgrade my Logic 7 Express to Logic 7 Pro as I've started doing a lot more compositional work lately. Unfortunately I don't have a steady enough income to afford the RRP of Logic, so I decided to go the eBay route . I found a seller who was selling, what looked to be, full versions of Logic 7 Pro. I did a 'background check' on the guy. His previous auctions were hidden, but I managed to find a roundabout way of finding them. I then contacted some of the buyers who had bought the same software from him to ask how their experience with the seller had been. I also contacted the seller himself in the hope that his reply would reveal all the tell-tale signs of a fraudulent seller. I never heard back from the buyers, but the seller replied and seemed to check out ok. He was also offering payment via PayPal, so I felt reasonably safe. I bid on, and lost, one auction but got an official (as in, received it in 'My eBay', not via email) Second Chance offer from the seller, which I accepted. Here is the actual listing. I PayPaled the US$615 to him (US$585 + US$30 shipping to New Zealand) and toddled off to polytech feeling rather elated. When I got home I checked eBay and found that I had received a message from one of the previous buyers that I had contacted to say: I freaked out and sent a message to the seller saying that I was totally unaware that it was an Academic license (he states in the listing that the software retails for US$1000, but the Academic version retails for US$499). I also contacted PayPal and informed them of the situation (though I doubt I'll get any help from them). I am pretty sure he won't have shipped it yet, so I sent another message to him asking that he simply PayPal me back the US$615 and get the whole thing resolved as quickly and painlessly as possible. The annoying thing is that I'm a student, so I can get Academic software legally anyway (at the time, I didn't realise there was an Academic version of Logic Pro ). Also, the resale value of the Academic version is drastically less than what I've paid. I was hoping that I'd pick up a cheap version of Logic Pro on eBay, use it for a couple of months, then sell it in New Zealand when I'm done with it. So, I guess what I'm asking is, am I ever gunna see my US$615 again? Or am I stuck with heavily inflated, Academic software? Has anyone ever reversed a PayPal payment? Regardless of how this turns out, I'm never going to be tempted by eBay again!
