    Hi guys. I bought an item (not from here)and paid via paypal but only as a transfer so no buyer protection.

    The guy said it was sent via royal mail with no tracking info. After a couple of weeks no sign of the item so i keep chasing him up.

    He has now sent me a parcel2go number which says delivered and shows a signature. But what this doesnt show is the address the item has been sent to.

    I have all the messages he has sent me and its looking dodgy to me now.
    Hindsight i guess.

    So what can i do? I have now asked for the postage label from the parcel2go tracking number which he should have as they always email it through.

    Thanks

    Royal Mail with no tracking info. Parcel2Go number? Two different services aren't they?

    Would help if you told us where it was purchased from? Can they not help?

    Yes exactly just doesnt make sense. It was an item on ebay but bought outside of ebay.

    You have been had, lesson learned. Hope it wasn't anything expensive.

    Maybe someone who knows more about these things can help but I wouldn't have thought so, sorry pal.

    Buy something else off the seller via eBay then request their details and turn up to see them.

    Your dead in the water. You circumvented Ebay's policy and they not even the most helpful when you follow the rules.

    It wouldnt have anything to do with ebay. It would just be like buying from the classifieds here and the item not arriving

    It would be more like buying off the classifieds and dealing by PM instead of on the thread. In other words outside of the rules

    If you follow the trading rules the classifieds mods will do their utmost to assist you if you are scammed.

    Simple answer would be to report this to the police as fraud.

    Ok little update on this. He has sent me picture of the postage label.

    It seems as though we were all wrong. The address is no. 28 on the label i live at no.29 so trip accross the road tomorrow to see if its there.

    Stupid thing is though it was delivered on the 03/06/2015 so if he had done this 2 weeks ago i would probably have it by now. Instead the chances are whoever has signed for it has either binned it or sent it back by now.

    Fingers crossed
