How does this ebay report lark work?

Ordered a book three weeks ago. Was due to arrive in 3-5 days.

Payment was debited on the day it was ordered.

Two weeks later, no book. He said there'd been an ebay error and the book was being shipped that day.

8 days later. No book. Opened one of those report things.

He's now emailed back to say "Please accept our apologies for any delay you may have experienced. The book will be despatched by 5pm tomorrow to arrive within 3 to 5 working days."

I have a feeling he's just waiting to collect loads of orders in before going t1ts up.

Is there a way to say "shove your book up your ar5e" and get the £54 back?

    Just leave the case open with e-bay and also with pay pal as it takes ages anyway to get anything back

    IIRC go to paypal, click on 'security centre', 'view open cases' then there should be steps to escalate to a claim

    Righty,next time you are looking for a book check out www.abebooks.co.uk

    They have almost everything available through their sellers.Cheaper than ebay as well for most of the books i have bought there.
