I'm just going to copy and paste the situation from an email I sent to eBay customer service: Hello, I won this auction for a pair of jeans quite a while ago. I paid for them with a personal check. After I got them, I discovered they were counterfeit. I emailed the seller about it, he said that he "did not sell fakes," but I could return them for a full refund (he had an unconditional return policy in the item listing anyway). I sent them back insured, and I got a receipt that they had been delivered and he signed for them. However, he never mailed me back a check. I've since emailed him several times, to none of which he has replied, and I've called him several times. At first when I called him he said he had a lot of returns he had to go through, so he just hadn't gotten to them yet, but that has been weeks ago. He has since stopped answering his phone or returning calls at all. He also closed his ebay account. So he has my (fake) jeans and my money. I have proof that he signed for the package and my bank has proof he cashed my check. Is there anything I can do? The ebay response was some boilerplate that had nothing to do with my situation, so I emailed them back but haven't yet received a reply. So is there nothing I can do? Thanks to the runaround I was given by this guy, it's already past the 60-day period in which I had to file an "Item not received" complaint, as I was suggested even though it doesn't really apply. Boned?
