Not sure if this is allowed.

Ebay name ernestov
Name Ernesto villalta from Sacramento California.

He purchased my helix p six dsp. Asked for a return and refund. I gave him the refund and return label. He doesnt want to return the amplifier and ebay told me it's between me and the buyer to get my amplifier back. Seems like ebay doesn't protect sellers.

This really sucks since I lost my job and the only reason i was selling the PSix was to pay bills.

I checked out his eBay profile... he has no negative feedback. Did he say something was wrong with the DSP?

I feel for you man... but why did you refund his money, before he returned the unit?

I know he has good reviews, which is why I trusted the buyer. He complained that fedex was late, and I made the mistake of hitting sell one like this. And it was the mk2 title, didnt realize it which is why he got a refund.

Because ebay said I needed to do it, or they will take the money and I'll lose the amplifier.

I know it's shitty but there isn't much you can do at this point. Unless the buyer decides to return it, you are pretty much fooked. I would just ask the buyer politely to return the amp since he has his refund and cross your fingers.

Ebay made you refund the money before the unit was sent back?? Usually, refunds are not given until the item has been returned.

That really sucks - hopefully, you end up getting it back. How long has it been?

Agree, happened to me few months ago. And even the buyer was really an a$$hole and sent me back a different and broken item, ebay covered me and refund both me and the buyer!
You don't have to refund BEFORE receive item back!

What city did you ship to? You have the address that you shipped to correct? If it was me, I would check to see if I had family or friends near him and pay him a visit, but that's just me.

No family or friends in Sacramento, I've thought about flying out myself.

Has the buyer said anything to you since he got his refund?

Did he request a return label?

If so, when did he request a return label? Was it when he requested a refund?

Did he decide to not return it after he got his money?

If this is the case, call the local police in his area as I believe that is theft through deception. He requested a refund and showed intent to return the item by asking for a return label.

"Theft by deception is similar to a basic theft charge, which is the unlawful taking of something that belongs to another person with the intent to deprive the owner of the property, but theft by deception requires that the individual employed some deceptive act or used deceptive words which were relied upon by the victim in making the decision to turn over their property."

He did ask for a return, I gave him the return label and refund like ebay told me to do. Now he doesn't want to return and ebay can't make him
They will only restrict his account.

I have had a similar experience. What I ended up doing was hiring a private investigator that showed up at the guy's house early in the morning. That same day my money was returned. It cost me $240 to get back $1800.
