Bought a bike off Ebay last week at a pretty significant cost (not far off £2.5k).
I paid for it last Monday and the item should have been posted to be with me Wed/Thurs (as detailed on the listing). The chap emailed to say he couldn't post until Wed but it would be with me Thurs (possibly Friday at latest). No problems there.
No sign Friday and no sign Saturday. I emailed him Saturday and no reply has been offered, silence. Wife just text to say there has been no delivery or card left today.
I'd be relaxed normally but slightly nervous due to the sums involved.
It was a standard ebay transaction, item won/confirmed and paid via Paypal goods, so that is protection I suppose. But at what point do you start ringing some alarm bells?
