Okay, I would be FURIOUS. Surely you have to be covered for this kind of obvious froud?

This is really awful and I’m so sorry you’re going through this… but didn’t this strike you as maybe a risky business to enter into?  I’m not trying to give you a hard time, but I just have to ask.

My brother ordered an xbox once and they sent him a brick that was the exact same weight as an xbox so that when he told paypal that what he got was a brick the seller/scam artist was able to prove by the shipping receipt that the package he sent weighed the same as amount as an ex box and my brother had no way to prove it was a brick. He even put the brick on the scales and took a pictures but paypal said that he has no way to prove that the brick was what was in the box that was shipped to him. He got screwed but you have a better case, you have 2 witnesses that are not related to you and you know the name of the person who sold you the empty box, paypal even refused to give my brother the name of his seller so that he could file a police report. I would suggest getting signed affidavits from both the doorman and especially the postman (they might think that maybe you know your doorman personally but they would surly believe the postman) and taking them to the police you might even want to get the noterized and fax a copy to paypal and ebay. You can also look up this woman’s phone number on the net. Was the package insured? I really hope you get your money back! Maybe she just forgot to put this ring in the box or maybe it was stolen by someone in the post office and repacked in a different package. Please keep us posted on what happens with this situation.

Just file a claim through eBay, and they will get you a refund for the entire amount paid.  Their claims procedure favors the buyer, for reasons I won’t get into, so they are likely to give you your refund even if the seller denies everything.

@smiles731:  A few months ago I randomly went to check my Wells Fargo checking account (which I never use) and noticed there had been over $1000 withdrawn to Paypal.  I called Wells Fargo right away and it ended up being that some f****** loser had hacked in to my Paypal account and used MY money to book a trip to Jamaica.  I was absolutely mortified.  I realize my loss was much less than yours but I feel your pain in the trust department.  Needless to say I was refunded my money and never did find out if they caught the a hole.  Don’t give up!  Hope all works out for you!!!!
