Hope this is a good place for the question. I'm just wondering how other people's ebay purchases have gone. I made my 1st ebay purchase of a bass on 10/16. I've made plenty of other ebay transactions buying and selling car parts memorabilia and such. Never had a problem so far. I closed the bass auction with a buy it now and promptly paid through paypal (should have requested a total). I have had zero communication with the seller as he hasn't responded to any email. This is the biggest ticket item I've bought sight unseen from a stranger, and I'm getting paranoid. The seller has 100% feedback but hasn't sold anything in a while. However he did make a purchase since my action closed. So he should be aware of his auction status. He also had a Peavy Cirrus for sale that has since closed. I requested his contact info and of course the phone number is disconnected. Am I too anxious? Ebay wants you to wait a week before you do anything. Supposedly your protected anyhow. What would you do?
