    Hi All

    Maybe someone here can help. On 21/12/07 i bought Alternator Tracks from an Ebay seller.

    On 27/12/07 the package was dispatched to me in Ireland from Canada. After 6 weeks i contacted seller to track the item. He said to wait another week or two. I contacted him again two weeks later and he sends me the tracking number.

    After tracking the package it has been delivered to Toronto not Ireland.
    Is there anything i can do about this or am i out $40?

    Thanks in advance for all help and replys

    sounds like you should file a paypal claim ASAP.

    By my calculations, you are on day 53 of 60 to file an Ebay dispute. So, yeah, definitely create a dispute ASAP. I would only give him a couple days to refund your money before creating one, if that. And let him know that you need him to refund the money ASAP otherwise you lose your ability to create the dispute, which would put you in a rough spot. Here's a direct link to creating a dispute.

    Sounds like he reused an older tracking # from a previous sale of his.
    There's a pretty big difference between Toronto & Ireland ya know ?
    I've got tracking #'s from packages I've sent recently, I could easily email you one and guess what...your package went to the USA !!! ???
    I can't see a postal worker actually delivering a package to some random address in Toronto if the package is addressed to Ireland....
    Sorry about that, sounds like you got duped.

    Thanx for all the replies. He said that reciept was for another item and my item was included in that reciept but has no tracking number.

    I contacted seller and asked for a refund minus shipping that way neither party would lose too much. He said to wait longer so i've filed a dispute with Ebay but i can't file one with Paypal because its after 45 days:(

    Open a dispute and escalate to a claim! A dispute will not help you at all....Escalate to a Paypal claim ASAP! Do not bother with ebay... Paypal may help.

    This sounds shady.
    You should ask for all of it. He was responsible for having the item delivered to you. He failed. He owes you a complete refund. Why should you pay for shipping he can't prove he paid for?
    CLAIM NOW.

    My advice, anyways.

    thats a lie!!! I have shipped more than one package with multiple tracking no.s on one receipt and they will all be listed on one receipt. and yeah opening the case was a good idea. that would be a huge mistake on the postal service and doubt would happen.

    Well I'll be damned. My package arrived this morning!! :rock  Looks like the seller was actually telling the truth.

    Anyways i closed the Ebay dispute and informed the seller. Just glad the package actually arrived regardless of wrong reciept or no tracking number.

    Some advice for people, Try not to use Canada Post Surface Mail for international shipping. It takes too long and you wont be able to open a Paypal dispute then.

    Again thanx for all replies and help
