AH! I actually have that t-shirt from many years ago. They should have written in the description that it has "100% Recycled Music" printed on it. I have a photo of mine, in light blue.

Bought something on ebay last week. Got a dispatch email from seller. Tracking number too, and it has been dispatched. This morning I got an email from Ebay saying the following:

We'd like to let you know that eBay has ended an item you were bidding on for breaching of one or more of our policies. As it's important that eBay maintains member privacy, we can't tell you exactly why the listing was removed.

Any offers or bids placed on this listing are now null and void. If you were the winning bidder, you're no longer obliged to pay for the item.

It then gives me options of what to do if I have already paid for the item.

I've contacted the seller and he says he has some problem with his ebay account


So what should I do??? What could be the problem? The item is on it's way to me.

Well, since you already paid for it and are certain it's already been dispatched, then I don't see the problem. Ebay are giving you the chance to back out if you haven't already paid, but since you have and are 100% sure you will receive the item, then...well, it's no skin off your teeth if there's a problem with his account unless you were planning on buying something else from that seller, right?

Yeah, that's fair enough, it's just it all seemed a bit dodgy.

I can see why you are a little anxious but try and relax. After you get the item, you might want to check your bank statement to make sure everything went smoothly with the transaction-- but I think it probably did. Maybe your seller was involved in some badmouthing of another seller or something completely else unrelated to your purchase.

By the way, can you see my avatar? It's not showing up on my computer.
It's supposed to be a kitty.

Oh, good.
I always like to know if it can be seen.
I wouldn't want to assume it can be seen and have everyone just see an empty box.

Hey Eddie,

That's happened to me too, it actually happened between me paying and the guy sending it out, so I was a bit anxious. But it was all OK, the guy was genuine and it arrived OK. What happened is that he used a photo from this product's website, instead of taking a photo himself and loading it up, so the person you could have purchased from could have unwittingly breached ebay's policies but still be an otherwise good seller. Good luck.

So annoyedI missed that mug's end time by just half an hour yesterday. :-(
I LOVE my TFC umbrella! :-)
