I recently posted on another Leica forum, (http://www.l-camera-forum.com/leica...58030-moment-therapy-m9-may-never-arrive.html), but thought I'd also post here as I'm a regular user of Amin's forums I recently won an ebay auction for an M9 for a great price of 1929 euros. Luckily, I paid with PayPal (so should have the protection). I asked the seller to send by UPS, but they said they couldn't as they were too far from UPS, and they sent by another courier service with a tracking number. The package didn't arrive, but had apparently been signed for. I initially came to the conclusion that the Le Poste had messed up the tracked delivery (I currently have a complaint open with them, which they are investigating). However, the ebay seller has just got some negative feedback from another buyer for sending an empty box of a Canon Lens. This got me thinking, and I've come to the conclusion that the seller is a scammer. Some initial information I have from my local post office shows that the dispatch office for the delivery was for a different area in my city. The la Poste tracking website also suggests it's a recommended letter (not a package). Therefore, I think the the eBay seller looked on Google maps to find an address near me (and some other online tools to find another person at that address), and post a recommended letter to that address. This would mean that someone would sign, and the delivery is completed. I've opened a PayPal dispute suggesting this has happened. Assuming this seller is a scammer, and did as I suspected, is it sure that PayPal will reimburse me under the buyer protection scheme ?
