buying rare ibby overseas/international EU thru paypal
Sorry to be so vague, but you know how we can get about leads and leaks on certain guitars, so because im paranoid about it leaking, going viral, and someone stealing it from under me, but heres the story:
1) I contacted a EU seller to buy a guitar
2) We negotiated and then agreed on price
3) I sent paypal payment (as goods, and in the notes identified the model and serial of the guitar as well as the listing ad)
4) Seller does not want to sell the guitar anymore.
Now I talked to paypal and they said the payment must be claimed or accepted first before funds are released.
My question is:
has anyone had experience with buying from European seller? if the transaction was canceled, what happened with the funds and refund?
im really disappointed, depressed, worried (loss of guitar + money) so if you can help or advise or offer experience, id appreciate it
PS I will post all the details on the guitar etc as soon as I know what this seller is doing, don't worry
