Not sure if I should post this here or name them shame them... but here it goes.
There is an ebay seller, zakizaki99, that everyone should steer clear of. I should have known better, but I wanted what he was selling (chandelier earrings and necklaces). His feedback is private. He has a rating of 98.2%. I didn't think much of it at the time and bid on the lot. Then a few days later, while showing my husband the listing, something made me check out the whole 'private' thing. I saw that in the last month they've had 22 negative feedbacks. I went ahead and finished the auction, I won for about $20. I paid within an hour of auction end by paypal (thankfully). That was May 23. It's now June 3, I've sent him two emails since... One on May 30th and one again June 2nd. So far, he has not responded to either email. I gave him until Friday, June 9 to have my items to me, or I am filing with ebay and with paypal. This person is in New York... I'm in PA. Unless he strapped the package to a turtle's back, there is no reason why 11 days after the auction that I shouldn't have my package by now. The auction said to allow 7-15 days from auction end for package to arrive, depending on location. Friday June 9th will be 17 days past auction end.
Am I being unreasonable here, especially considering that they have been refusing to return my messages (all of which have been sent through the ebay system)? Am I being too impatient? or does this seem fishy to anyone else?
