I just tried to buy a 7D on here from username 'Remington'. I sent him the $1,400 via PayPal (Normal, NOT a gift), and he said he would ship that day. He opened a FedEx request for pickup, but that's all he did. He never shipped (according to FedEx) and he won't return emails, calls, or PM's.
I tried to open a dispute with PayPal, but they said he could not be contacted via a normal dispute, so I had to escalate to a claim.
So, am I going to get my money back? Anyone have experience with PayPal and their claims? Is there anything I could have done that would make me lose my chance of getting my money back?
