So i've been quite excited because thanksgiving night, I contacted an individual that was selling a powerbook on craigslist. (15", 1.33GHz, etc.) Great condition, 2 years applecare left, for a very fair price. Had all the original boxes, etc, so I figured this was the one to get. We agreed paypal was the best payment method, so I transfered the sum to his account with the agreement that he would ship sometime in the next 2 days. (the Friday or Sat. after thanksgiving). Following that, I haven't heard anything from him, i've called numerous times, left numerous voicemails, numerous emails, etc. The only response I got was a brief "i'll call you sometime today" on monday, which never happened. Nothing about actually shipping though. Here's where it gets fishy. He deleted the craigslist post on tuesday, which means he has computer access. Why couldn't he just send me an email updating me on the status? Since I haven't gotten any word AT ALL, I left more messages yesterday saying I would file a complaint with paypal if he didn't respond by the end of the day. No response, so I filed. Now I guess it is in the hands of paypal - they said that if he doesn't respond within 10 days the claim is decided in my favor - does that mean I get my money back? What if he doesn't have it in that bank account anymore? Has anyone had any experiences with this? I'm really bummed b/c I was really excited to get this powerbook, and I figured paypal was a fairly safe way to buy it. Note, this was not ebay, it was a response to a craigslist post. (And talking to the guy and reading the post it seemed like he was a normal guy, i.e. it wasn't fishy). Thoughts? Do you think i'll recover my money?
