    Well I bought some headlights from an Explorer Forum member on October 24th. I paid them through paypal. They said they shipped the item out 1 week later. So I waited 2 weeks since the package was going from Washington to Michigan. Then I contacted the member and he never gave me a tracking number or confirmation number. Then he said after 3 weeks the package arrived back at his door. Now he said he shipped it out with UPS and he sent a faulty tracking number and he is ignoring my phone calls.

    It has been almost a month. What would you do about this? I have gotten people in serious trouble for fraudulent activity in the past, but I wanted someone else's opinion on this.

    Can I get my money back from paypal since I negotiated through explorerforum?

    I think paypal will let you make a claim. I went thoung that once with an ebay transaction and they froze my paypal account until it was resolved.

    Don't expect much from paypal- they will only refund your money if the person you filed the claim against has money.

    Did you pay with a bank account or credit card? PayPal offers buyer protection for both. If you paid with a credit card, however, you can do a charge-back whereby the card takes the money from PayPal, regardless of whether PayPal wants to give it back.

    Yeah- paypal hates chargebacks. If you do that, you'll get a nasty email. I did.
