    Hi, I took the plunge and purchased 2 Rush tickets to the Sep 25th show in San Diego off of Ebay. But, it's been over 24 hours and I havent heard anything from the guy I bought them from, except for the directions he sent me as to how he wants the payment to be made. I have e-mailed him 3 times now asking for some info, but he hasn't e-mailed me back yet, it's been over 24 hours since the first e-mail.

    This is my first ebay purchase, and im trying not to be overly paranoid because of my inexperience. But im starting to get upset. Im tempted to get ebay involved already, especially if I don't here anything by the end of the day.

    Are there any Ebay pro's out there that can give me assistence. Thanks in advance.

    I wouldn't jump to any conclusions yet. I have bougth probably 80+ items (mostly Van Halen-related) on eBay over the last three or four years and have really only been stiffed once, and I actually got the item, it was just broken in shipment apparently.

    I do not think that I have ever paid for something and never got the item. I feel some have mis-represented the item, but I always got it.

    willy, what was the sellers grade? How many points did he have? Can you give us the link for the finished bid?

    I've sold a few things and I usually get an e-mail within hours of the auction ending. I don't want to worry you willy, but it doesn't sound good so far.

    The guy probably wants to recieve his payment first before he sends the tickets. When I have ordered on eBay they will e-mail me when they get the money order I sent them in the mail, to tell me that they are sending the item that I bought.

    He should respond to your e-mails though, but he could just be busy. I would wait a few days before I contacted eBay.

    There are a lot of ways to approach this. First off, let us know what auction number it was so we can look at it. I did a search and did not see any 1st time bidders winning tics within the last few days, but my search criteria may be bad. The chances that you are out of your money are slim, but the point is you want to see the show, I am sure.

    Thanks for getting back to me so quickly, I really appreciate it.

    His raiting was just a six (6). But he had not negatives.

    I already sent payment from PayPal, and it has already been taken from my credit card, so as far as I know about this stuff, he has the money.

    Here is the link to the purchase:

    PayPal is kind of like an Escrow agent. He is due the money, but it does not mean that he has it yet. He should have contacted you, but I would not worry about it just yet. You have fulfilled your end of the agreement (you did attempt to contact him). You have plenty of time to wait to see if he is a total flake. Give it a few days. eBay has some avenues to get your money back if there is an issue (they do offer some insurance by default) as well as PayPal's way of dealing with deadbeats. On top of that all, you have retribution you can take with your CC company to resolve this. I have a feeling you will get your tics.

    That's cool, I feel a little better now. It's not about the money, though if this guy is a freaking thief, I want it back! I really want to see this concert. Thanks for the help everyone.

    Hey Trip, I thought it was almost taken care of but im still screwing around with it.

    The guy e-mailed me back, but basically ignored most of what I was complaining about. He just said that he was sending the tickets and to enjoy the concert. I e-mailed him again Sunday to get an exact date that the tickets were being sent, but I didnt get any word back...

    Until today, this guy e-mail's me back saying that he doesn't know where to send the tickets, he's not sure if he should send them to the shipping address listed on PayPal!! I e-mailed him back again saying to send it to the address listed on PayPal, and on Ebay, and then I kinda got upset in the e-mail. I just stated my point that I told him im on a tight schedule starting the 28th (as he already knows), and that it's unreasonable that im expected to wait 7 days after he recieved my payment to get my tickets, that I purchased from him, and payed $15.00 dollars for shipping.

    I e-mailed some of the guys that have purchased tickets from him, just to see how it really went down, none of them had any problems with him. I think he's just pissed that he didn't have a reserve on the tickets, and they went for so cheap, $180.00 for Rush tickets, 11th row, maybe he was expecting more, and he's trying to get me to give up and demand my money back. I don't know, but im getting pissed.

    As long as I get the tickets I will be happy, but starting Friday, if I don't have them in my hands, Ill start dealing with ebay about getting my cash back, and maybe I can get an address so I can kick his ass!

    Do you have any more guidence man?

    The guy has only been a registered ebay member since 5/17/02, but he has no negs. or neutrals and the auction looked very professional. I think you'll be alright. I've had over 300 transactions on ebay and have had very few problems by being careful. If their rating is less than 20, or if they have any neg. feedback, I would ask questions before bidding. Good luck!
