    Yeah, it is. This whole thing is completely sketching me out. We've been going back and forth and back and forth on a deal, not negotiating money, but negotiating how she can sell it to me. After many ebay messages asking for my contact number so she could text with me (no, thanks), she sent me a paypal invoice, promising that she'd remove the listing. I paid. She, of course, hasn't yet removed the listing. I'm not holding out much hope. At least I'll get my money back?

    It's a sweet sportcoat and nearly exactly what I've been wanting, so I hope it works out. But I'm kind of over this shit.

    Dr. Max Bloom was a famous cardiologist. A graduate of Yale School of Medicine, he served as a medic in the European Theatre during World War II. Most notable, he set up the first intensive care unit in the stare of Rhode Island. Nice find!

    If I have something I'll send it to you gratis. It sounds like a worthy cause!

    AAAARRRRGGGGGHHHH! This brings back bad Memories! This was the year when Colorado got a 5th Down against Missouri (my school). They won the Championship, but they lost to Mizzou -- EXCEPT they got a 5Th down! Still pisses me off!

    So you're dealing outside of Ebay on an Ebay listing? I doubt PayPal will take pity on you when you ask for a refund.

    You can offer it here but I think it's kind of a foregone conclusion who is going to own that if not you don't you think? -- Jdriz: holy shit! Some stunning stuff in there. -- Noob: I totally owned the (street version of) that watch in the 80s. Sweet.

    its not the right thread, but PP doesn't give two shits if you circumvented an ebay purchase. not only are they no longer linked, but (hi, lawyers), they look at facts. If you paid for something that was never received, you win.

    Maybe so, but I think I have a right to be a bit pissed here.

    I placed a bid on that item earlier today, not knowing it was what @ATLjon was after from that seller. As the high bidder on the Ebay auction, I'll be a bit upset if the seller has sold the item outside of Ebay. There's nothing I can do to report it, since the communication to circumvent Ebay was done on someone else's messages, but it's happened.

    As a seller, ATLjon should know that what he has asked the seller to do is outside of the Ebay rules.

    ouch. sorry about that.

    but to your original point - PP will side with him if the item isn't received, not the seller for breaking the rules.

    lets bring it over to the ebay thread after this though.

    LOL... I'm a newly minted Buffs fan, but remember watching that championship game on TV. If it doesn't sell by November 7, I'll wear it to the game against Stanford.
