I won an auction on ebay last week for a Lapierre Froggy (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/190873904546?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649). The seller first said they wouldn't ship until the cash had left their paypal and gone into their bank account. Annoying but tolerable. They then said (on Saturday) that it was sent on Friday, and would arrive on Monday. It's not arrived as of today. I emailed them several times asking for courier and tracking info, and they said it was some courier that advertises on "an auction site", but didn't give any more details. They're only responding to every third message I send them asking for an update, and are now saying they can't contact the courier...
I was suspicious enough, but they then had no fewer than 6 high-end bike auctions ending this morning (http://www.ebay.co.uk/csc/kellie9981/m.html?LH_Complete=1&_ipg=25&_since=15&_sop=13&_rdc=1), and another 2 this afternoon.
The pictures all seem to be taken in different places/gardens.
Am I being paranoid, or does this look shifty? Anything I can do? I have a case open with ebay for my transaction, but doubt ebay would do anything about my suspicions without conrete evidence would they?
