    ............

    not much you can do at this point ..if he doesnt send you the bat and bag file with ebay and you can also get him for fraud if he doesnt refund the money or send you the items...keep your emails for proof

    yes thats why i said file with paypal you probably have to wait till after the auction ends then if he sells it to some one else file with paypal and if that doesnt solve it press charges for internet fraud

    EVER buy out of AUCTION on E-BAY unless it is BUY IT NOW... E-bay tells you this, too. Your only re course is Paypal right now. I do not think E-bay is going to standbehind you at all. I had a similar situation. LMK how it works out. I would try to recall the money/cancel the transaction.

    Just my $.02....

    this should be on a different category ..but you would have to contact the local police department in his town or yours i guess.. i would give this all some time before you blow it up let him try to make good on his word first.next time post on the open board

    I agree w/ Odf & Mj...

    What was his feedback like- did he have many transactions? If you end up having to take action, it would be nice to know who this is...

    Are you sure that there was only 1 bag/bat combo that he was selling? Sometimes, some dealers will post one auction and sell multiple items off of that auction (i.e. If they have a couple of high offers for a product and they have multiple products to sell, they'll sell it to the top bidders). I had that happen to me once. I finished 2nd and the seller said that he had another of the same item that he would sell me for my top bid.
