Just a heads up... I think I should share this recent encounter with everyone..
I won an item recently (non camera related, from the U.S.), and the seller did not respond not ship the item to me. I went to the Ebay protection centre after 1 week, and Ebay has recently refunded me the money. Before the refund (but after opening the case), he messaged me that he has sent the item a few days ago. I asked for his tracking number.
Upon knowing that Ebay has refunded me the money, he sent me a message, saying that now that I have the item (which did not arrive at my door, obviously) and the refunded money, I'll have to return either one, else, he'll get Ebay and Paypal involved. Shortly after, he sent another 2 messages, saying, sorry that he's gotten it wrong (the odds are against him, and I've seen him through and through), and told me to disregard his previous message. (such a dishonest and sneaky fella)
I didn't reply him at all, but I've brought this up to Ebay that he's a dishonest seller, and to check all the messages that we've exchanged. The seller just sent me another message, telling me that I've 24 hours to reply with my decision (wt* is this guy up to, what decision?)
Anyway, story waiting to unfold.... I'm not gonna reply, he can be worried for his actions for all I care.. he's like self-pawning himself. But I'm gonna make sure karma strikes back at him.
