I won an auction on ebay a few weeks ago, sent my check in, and I still haven't received my item. I have been e-mailing the seller, but he will not respond. It has now been 3 weeks since I sent my check, and 2 weeks since he told me it was on the way. Plus, now I found out he has been suspended from ebay, and I think the only way that happens is if you either don't pay for something or don't send the item. Anyone have any ideas as to what I can do? I have his name and address, and I even looked up his phone number on the internet. Can I call the police about something like this? I am really getting pissed off. This is the first time anything like this has ever happened to me on ebay.

Any lawyers here? I'd love to hear the legal implicatsion of this. It certainly sounds like a scam. My apologies for posting the whole article - I heard it on the radio this morning and found it in the San Jose Mercury News. Posted on Wed, Mar.
