This sounds so familiar. I've had similar issues with taterslasers on ebay since November 2015 --yet he has 100% positive feedback on ebay. I haven't opened a paypal dispute resolution yet, because I do believe he is having health issues --no response from last set of emails in which I requested that we work something out before 3/31/16
7+ Watt 450nm Blue Laser Kit $429.99
( 272050556936 )
PayPal ruled in my favor on three disputes. So that's ~$700 recovered but they still have a fully built laser with a custom Eghemus host and a Kryton host that I paid for. They are worth another $400-$500 I think. But I have not been able to get her to send them back. His wife texts me but very intermittently. Technically, since she's using his phone and email address, I'm not 100% certain it's her but I'm leaning towards his sickness/story is legitimate and it's really her. But we're 5 months into it.
I worry that with mounting medical bills that they're tempted to hunker down and keep the money/sell them for their own well being.
Honestly, if the story holds up, I would have been inclined to help them out financially but I'm reluctant to throw good money after bad.
People like you have bought their "Buy It Now" items and PayPal freezes their account if any dispute is opened so now that mine is closed, you may want to file one before they can withdraw any remaining funds.
