    Ok I bought a DS Lite for $129 on ebay 2 days ago. The seller still has not contacted me. I asked him once if he would notify me when he sipped it. The next day I asked if he would provide a tracking #. Now maybe I'm crazy, but I'm paranoid about this kind of thing and I've been scammed before.

    Does anyone else think I should have heard from him by now? He says he ships as soon as payment is recieved. So it should have shipped 2 days ago, and he's using USPS priority mail which takes 2-3 days. If I don't get it by the end of the week or here anything from him I'm notifying ebay and paypal.

    BTW, he has 100% positive feedback on ebay and is unverified on paypal.

    I think I might just give him until the end of the day today before I do that.

    BTW, here's the link to the auction:
    LINK REMOVED BECAUSE SOMEONE DECIDED TO HACK MY ACCOUNT
    Does anyone notice anything fishy about it? It seemed ok to me.

    EDIT: I just checked a thing on ebay and it says sellers should contact buyers withing 3 days of the auctions end. So I guess I should wait until tomorrow...

    I just bought something and the guy keeps putting it off... at first he said he was shipping it tomorrow and then a week later when it hadn't arrived I messaged him and he said that he was busy and didn't have any money but he was gonna ship it the next day... sound fishy? :confused:

    you're lucky.
    if a seller doesn't have good rep or pictures.
    it's usually a scam.
    i look at those too things first.
    just for further reference.
