No ebay does not care.

the ebay CS said the only thing he could do is REFUND HIM 100% and ask me to file a police claim.
this is how ebay resolve problems, they have to really stand back buyers.

well, the guy seems very familiar with what eBay and Paypal do.

He file claims from ebay, not paypal.

so when I call paypal for the dispute, there is no record, only money being held by eBay.

so Paypal CS cannot help me, even the Paypal CS told DO NOT REFUND HIM, and take time to ask help from the Police.

like I said, I do not need that 475 bucks, I will donate it to whoever need it. I just do not want the bad person get the money and laugh to the end.

so sad about this kind of ppl from US!

Obsessed!!
Omg, this is truly a nightmare. People like this sickens me. I only sold couple items on eBay and luckily, it worked out fine. I'm sorry this happened to you.

All the best to you and hope things get sorted out. The lovely ladies here are good so I'm sure it'll get better. Cheer Up Op!

I agree. There is nothing in all of this that rules out theft by a UPS employee.

He may not care, but it could be enough to spook him into returning your money.
But it could also be buyer theft. And, if so as Iris says, the possibility of an investigation could scare him into "finding" the CPU and returning your money. Good luck.

Just saw your MSG.

Ok, I'll try MSG buyer.

To me,his MSG just indicate he want to get an UPS mail insurance add to his pocket .

Like if I report empty package, he can be benefit from paying from insurance that he initially bought.

All in his design.

Upon searching from google, his info shows record of assault on police officer,violence,public intoxication,child abuse ect.
