Holy Smoke, any response from that seller at all? Give that seller a very negative review. It is an order killer for their future sales. I think there is more that can be done via E-Bay directly as well. If I get some more details for procedure I will post them here too. Good Luck.

yea I can flag them to ebay obviosly give them terrible feedback.  They where easy to get ahold of in the beginning through messaging, but in the last two weeks nothing.  They have like 3300 sales with 99.7% positive feedback so I guess im a .3 on this one.  I was thinking karma or something cause I cussed in earshot of a kid at the bowling alley on accident, so thats probly what it is.Big Grin  I payed through paypal and I believe that works as an escrow servace so im looking into getting my money back.

If you haven't found it already, I think the following link will get you started directly with EBay transaction resolution. Of course the first step is hammering away to get a response from the seller.

ebay is going to contact seller.  Seeing as they are considered a power seller, ebay has closer communication to them it seems and ebay is supposed to contact me within 24 hours.. 
 
Thanks again Terry, keep ya posted...

So ebay and the seller both contacted me.  Ebay said the seller was at fault, I guess they admitted they didn't ship the item.  So the seller said they "are all about customer servace and feedback" so if I leave them good feedback they will send me my money back and they are supposed to finally ship the item today from chinaland.  I asked why they werent responding to my messages and they didn't answer.  So I sold myself for 85$ and said id do it.

Im not that satisfied because it was bad buisness.  They should send the flashlight out and my check before im required to leave feedback so I can still leave the score they deserve..

  Wasn't meant for you h. 
 
  AGREE with you there.  Although I don't mess with e-bay it seems I'm reading more and more complaints like yours about dealings there and some with BAD outcomes.

Yea ive bought and sold quite alot without a bad exp.  I check feedback and the # of transactions they have and when they are in the thousands with good feedback I feel pretty safe.  I think they just forgot to send the item.  Cant explain the lack of contact though.  I just got off the phone with pay pal and they are an escrow service and they can give me my money back if the item is not recieved.  I would never pay on ebay with a credit card or check, money order etc.  Paypal is safe and secure.  But 100 or so transactions for me and 1 bad one, and it may turn out to be good.  But in case im glad pay pal can get me my money back.

There are really good deals on ebay if you shop carefully.  You can find anything on there you can think of too.  I wouldnt be afraid to use it.  Just make sure if your buying that the # by there user name is high and there rating is good.  Last year I bought a new in box with papers Movado watch for less than half price if the stores and msrp.  Actually my first transaction about 6 years ago was a Mustang cobra.  I flew to Missouri to pick it up.  But the seller was very honest and the expierience was good.

Ive since sold that cobra and bought an '03 cobra off craigslist classifieds from chicago.  We used escrow.com and it went well also.  I wired the money to the service and there is terms of sale through them that we both agreed to.  Like 3 days to inspect before I let the money into his account etc.  It was the best 25$ you can spend for peace of mind but the car was great so I got on the site and clicked good and it transfered te 25k into his account just like that.

Just remember unless otherwise stated NO WARRANTY so I might not buy a tv or computer unless they back it up.
