I think I was scammed. I made a purchase for a handbag online, and paid via PayPal. The seller had 1 eBay feedback. After making payment a week ago, I have not heard back from the seller despite numerous emails. I did an eBay contact information request and got their phone number, and tried calling but got a generic voicemail and left a message. Still nothing. So today I filed a dispute with Paypal. Immediately after filing the dispute, it said that the seller is unable to respond to the dispute at this time and to escalate to a claim (does that mean that the seller is no longer with PP???). I also noticed they were Unverified. Few questions for you experts: 1) I escalated to a claim on PP. However, since I paid with AmEx, is it faster to do a chargeback? And if this is the case, and PayPal can't get the money back from the seller, will they hold me accountable and limit my account? 2) I tried tracking the seller down. Looked up the registered eBay name on Intelius and the phone number. Strange thing is, registered ebay name, email address and phone number belong to THREE different names. However, I know that the email (an aol email) is her email because she responded and used it to send me photos. Not even sure if the phone number is hers or even the name. I want to report this person but I'm not sure what is the fastest way. Also got the original ebay user name's home address. Will this help? Any answers would be very much appreciated! Thank you all!!
