You certainly should try, and I hope you get financial satisfaction, but I
doubt very much that ebay will do the right thing and boot out a person who is
earning them big commissions. I hope they prove me wrong.
My guy, ibecp1, is a powerseller from the UK. I didn't receive shipment and I
can't even leave feedback because I gave him too much time to deliver, given
the distance and that I chose 'surface' as a method of shipment which does take
longer. Same for paypal. When I look at his feedback, it's almost as if he
knows how often he can get away with it. But, maybe I'm paranoid. :) He says
he shipped uninsured and accepts no responsibility for the item ( chrome Sprite
embossed K&N filter ) not getting here. Peeved, jaded, out $200ish, and
probably breaking some ebay rule by publicly dis'ing ebay.
