I ordered a video cable for a Toshiba Laptop and the cable arrived in 2 pieces. After sending multiple e-mails to the seller, I received an email from eBay to give feedback. I gave the seller a negative feedback rating and quickly received a message back from them saying they do not reply to emails, only to messages on Ebay. Figuring this may have been a misunderstanding, I agreed to send the cable back and change the feedback rating. After a while I finally heard back from the seller saying that I did not send back the cable he had sent and he was not providing a refund.
Now the 45 days is up and eBay/Paypal refuse to help. I think the seller purposely waited long enough so there was nothing I could do. If you order something from this seller and it comes in damaged, go straight to eBay/Paypal, don't even bother with him because he will string you along until your 45 days are up.
