Okay okay I asked one of the mods to kill my other thread because at the time it was just too much. Thanks to everyone who messaged me afterwards, I really appreciate it. Anyways, after finding out that she was no longer a registered user, I contacted eBay immediately and opened an "Item Not Received" dispute...plus I contacted the seller by sending her the same email to three different email address she gave me (her Paypal payment, her husband's email and her own) and after I finished my last class, I got this response: Don't you dare accuse me before u talk to me. You don't even know the reason I'm not on ebay anymore. So let me fill you in before u get all in a bunch about it. I didn't freakin scam you. Acutally I left last night at around 5pm to go to the race track today. I had my niece answer some emails and I told her if any ony sent me an email about the lv sandals to tell them I still have them she must have gotten confused an just saw lv and said yes. I don't even know exactly what she sent. The reason why I am suspended on ebay (and you can even ask them) is because I have the same address as someone in my family got suspended and they suspend everyone related to that account. One of my brothers or sisters prolly just didn't pay for a bunch of stuff. I was still planning on sending ur items out. I was at the track all day today so I didn't get to the post office. If you still want them I will send them out tomorrow if I'm up early enough. Or monday. I will send you the tracking number but once I give u the number and you check it on the computer you HAVE to take the hold off my account. Sooooo anyways, although this is not very assuring, I found that it was comforting that AT LEAST she still made the effort to reply to my emails. Ok, I'll take her excuse for the race track now, b/c she did mention that she may not be able to ship the stuff today, and she'll either do it Friday or Monday. My hopes are not up high for this, and I'm still ready to contact my credit card company any time between now and my statement due date in November...but the PayPal dispute closes October 26, so I have now until then to figure things out. Thanks for all of your support guys, I really really appreciate everyone's support during these two...stressful...yet unusually exciting days! LOL. No I'm not excited or happy...just a tiny tiny bit relieved...things COULD turn out well, or they cannot. Oh well, whatever, I got a gigantic tip from a customer today and I can pay everything off so worst case scenario my credit card company won't cover it...I have no problem paying it off!! I made a stupid mistake and this will be one expensive lesson!!
