Never heard of this before. Get onto paypal and hopefully you will get money back.

I don't buy anything worth more than a few quid from ebay these days, too many scammers.

oh fook

Sounds like an I.T. problem rather than a scammer, as how could a scammer fix Ebay's/your summary page so not to show anything there??(s'pose it's possible - but they would have to have hacked the system somehow?!?!)

Good luck!

yeah i was hoping thats what it would be!! But its not appeared yet! I've filed a thing in the resolution centre on paypal, hopefully they will suceed in contacting the seller smile

I heard a few stories like this on money saving expert the other day and the sellers account had been hacked.

hope this isn't the case for you.

Some auction sites can have anomalies. I once increased my bid amount on an item and it bloomin well increased the actual current price (as though I was a new bidder!! Bidding against myself??!?!)

sounds like an account was hacked, you will probably get an email from paypal or ebay about it

you can also try live help?

Are other items showing up?

I had this once and it was a scam. The seller deleted the auction from Ebay and tried to get me to pay by credit card via a Chinese website hmm

Obviously I refused and reported it but at least I hadn't paid. Hope you get it sorted out.
