I sent payment for this to Dentrague exactly 24 hours ago. During the negotiation he has had a phenomenal response time. Once payment was sent I've not heard anything from the past 24 hours. I'll give another 24 hours until I file a claim.
Because a family member being sick somehow means you can't take the literally 30 seconds it requires to respond to that email.
I've had pretty good experiences with payments disputes with PayPal over the years, odds are you'll get your dough back from this lowlife.
Dantrague, Joseph/Allen Waters (according to paypal), made no response to me but promptly made a response to paypal once the file was claimed. Looks like he wants to fight it.
@Otnas - Do you think it may be a good step to call the credit card company (since I funded it via CC) and have them cancel it if Paypal does not come to a resolution in my favor by the end of the week?
Paypal tends to side with the buyer (especially when you used CC) unless buyer has a history of filing claims. Plus the seller probably don't have proof of shipment o anything other than "I sent the buyer an email".
It may take up to a month after it's been escalated by you before Paypal makes a decision. In the unlikely event that Paypal doesn't side with you, or they do but can't recover the full amount be ready to call your CC company. That has a habit of forcing Paypal to dig into the seller's account for money and even going after seller with debt collection and/or credit record reflecting badly on him.
In the end the seller really loses if they try to scam through Paypal, and the buyer does use credit card.
what would happen if you told paypal that what you bought from him wasn't "virtual goods"?Well it sucks for me because my money was in paypal I hadn't pulled it via cc or anything so he has my money and paypal doesn't seem to be reviewing my complaint because it's showed as a close claim. I sent him another email but I don't he responds. I hate scammers it's crap like this that makes you not trust anyone and that's unfortunate for sure.
