Me too. I stopped selling on eBay a few years ago. I was too stressed out worrying about getting scammed. It's not worth the hassle. I vaguely remember a situation exactly like this from a year or so ago. If I remember correctly, a man bought a Chanel bag for his wife from one of our fellow TPFers and then claimed the box was empty when he received it. I think it turned out that the guy was a scammer and had done this to several sellers. If I remember correctly, he was also in NYC. Does anyone remember that thread? I wonder if it could be the same scam artist at work?
