1 package is at my post office awaiting collection, 1 got flagged as "damaged" and is still in Germany and will be sent back to seller.

Even if he's legit (stinks a little like a scam to me?) I can't wait for him to reship because I'm moving interstate in a week.

If I want to get out of the deal should I pickup the package that got here and then file a paypal claim or should I leave it and let it go back to him then claim??

Northern Territory?

Bought some jeans which were marked as posted 1st class signed for and should've arrived Tues/Weds last week. Still haven't turned up, no tracking info, and seller not responding to messages (he was quick to reply before though).

Too soon to escalate with eBay, or should I leave it a little longer?

I would have been on to them last Thursday.

Won an auction for an item that purported to be in Europe.

Item arrives 3 weeks later via China Post Roll Eyes

Thing is obviously fake. What's the best way of getting my money back?

I don't fancy springing to get something sent back to China.

Pair of Lemtosh frames.

They're not terrible fakes as it goes but I have no idea if they'd survive the glazing process.

I'm getting annoyed with products on eBay that are defined as being sold by a UK seller, but are shipped from China, particularly if I want something relatively quickly.
