On October 11,2006 I bought a bunch of Action figures from a seller that goes by the username yourtoys14. The figures totalled $203.50 US $243.60 US after shipping
$279.36 Canadian (I'm Canadian) It has since been nearly two months and I have received nothing. I e-mailed him, and he would not tell me anything, all he would say was for me to check out his ME page on eBay. This is what his me page had to say.
IF YOU ARE MISSING YOUR ITEM
I just got back from a vacation to learn of many problems. Many of you know I closed my store and have discontinued any further EBay activity. This is due to a new position at work and I cannot provide a quality product, timely shipping, make a profit, and give EBay 10%, Pay pal 10% and then the supplier 50%. I have been doing this for 3.5 years now and it is time to close my doors.
1: USPS ERRORS: I returned from vacation to learn that over 30 of my packages had been opened/stolen from the Atlanta Bulk Mail center. Please see the attachment as it is one of the many that have arrived in the last week, hopefully this will help regain some trust and cooperation. I have been on the phone with the postmaster this morning, and they suspect employee misconduct but we are both uncertain which goods are missing. In the mean time I am filling out these forms, faxing them, and working with them to reach a monetary settlement. I need your help to determine which packages were actually missing/stolen. The full extent of Ebay misconduct rules will be used on individuals making false claims.
2: MISSING YOUR PURCHASE: Please let me know if you honestly and seriously are missing your purchase. According to the post office these empty packages had shown up for the last 3 weeks before they suspected more than a coincidence. Each of the packages have 1 thing in common they have my user name on the return address (your toys) seems to me like the reason for theft. Obviously those of you who purchased delivery confirmation have been spared in this nightmare.
3: PLEASE EMAIL ME AT: email@example.com if you honestly did not get your purchased item so I maybe able to investigate it. Place the word STATUS in the email subject line or it WILL NOT be read or taken seriously.
This entire thing comes as a shock to me and in my 5 years on Ebay I have never seen anything like this. I as well as people in the area I have taught how to sell are getting threats and crazy claims in emails. This is not right and if I have to I will pursue a legal resolution. If you have a problem with my business and user id DO NOT email every seller in the state I live in. There is nothing shady going on here; I was gone for the holiday – nothing more.
Below is a list of all the figures I purchase and the amount I paid for each. Keep in Mind I have not received any of them.

I have since e-mailed him several times, but the seller has stopped answering. And his once perfect feedback is now full of negative feedback. I don't know what to do. Do you guys think I've been scammed? Or do you believe the sellors story about the stolen parcels. Is there anything I can do? $300.00 is alot of money to me. If I do not get a refund, I'm afraid it may be the end of my Marvel Legends collecting.
Thank for your Help
