I bought a Kate Spade Thompson Street suede hobo in purple (natch!) off eBay 10 days ago, and since then, the seller has been completely missing in action. No emails, no response to any of my emails, no nothing. I did the "get members info" thing yesterday, to get their phone number and let them know that I was getting ready to escalate this to the next level. And finally, today, I got the nerve to call the number. Grrr. It's disconnected. Why am I not surprised? So I opened a dispute with eBay and PayPal and we'll see if that's enough to goose the seller into doing the right thing. The nerve of this person -- the auction says that if you don't pay withing 5 days, you'll get reported as a non-paying bidder. I paid within 5 hours, and look where it got me. After all the horror stories I've read here about PayPal never doing the right thing, I'm hoping this will work out as it should. Worse comes to worse, I won't hesitate to do a chargeback if it looks like the only way I'll get my money back. Sigh. All I wanted was a purple handbag. Is that so wrong?
