I had recently filed a dispute against a buyer in order to recover my Paypal funds for an item not received. The dispute was awarded in my favor but as the seller had no funds available I did not receive a copper.
I then requested that the transaction fees that were collected by both E-Bay and Paypal be returned to me, at the very least, but was notified that I would not be getting those fees back either.
Not only was I ripped off by the origional seller but by both E-Bay and paypal as well.
If buyers are not protected from fraudulant sellers or a buyer protection policy that does not legally exist....
