    That doesn't seem right for a sales site like eBay to expect - yet hide it at the bottom of the page as well.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    The worry bit for me is that it doesnt say its in hand. Often what bots will do is take your money, bot to get it in hand, burn the account, OR return your money, and then use the PS5 they got to flip it for like 800-900 bucks. So you more or less are a leaning service for them to flip for higher profit on a main account.

    Maybe it's the one that only makes fried chicken and doesn't play games.

    Or maybe this was one of the delivery drivers that was stealing them, so $500 to them is a profit. Either way, something like this, with a "meh" library right now, I would have just waited for them to be fully stocked everywhere.

    The lack of due diligence on OP's part is frightening.

    I'll be honest here, I'm not sure why you'd go to eBay for a PS5 for close to retail price, when you could have tried to get it from a retailer that actually sells them, like GAME for example or what ever your countries equivalent is to a GAME store.

    That's what happens to people when they see a highly desired yet hardly available item. Thinking and caution turns off.

    With CC you are backed whatever.
    Also if the seller cant supply good info it will not go trough.
    That is not dead which can eternal lie,
    and with strange Aeons even Death may die.

    You 10000% got scammed bro and since it's ebay, you will probably not get your money back and glhf cancelling that order if seller already marked it as shipped, then only the seller can.
    I once opened a ticket for an item not arriving. I had actually bought two of the same item about 3-4 months apart from this guy. When I escalated the dispute he submitted the shipping on the previous item and won the case. Luckily 3 days later I got my item anyway but what in the flippin fuck did the ebay guys think they were doing? Literal fraud, more serious than not sending an item and I had no recourse because they considered the matter closed.

    I do not hold their dispute process in high regard, good luck OP.
    The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.

    Because I have never used the site before and didn't see it until I purchased. I thought the seller had 5 stars and 1200 reviews but it was the ps5 as an item and not the seller. And because I was tired. I'm also a very gullible person irl. I believe stuff when people tell me things without second guessing much. I'm not dumb. I'm naive and too trusting.

    That's why I didn't see it. I was wrongly treating the site like Amazon. I learned my lesson.

    One of those restocking alert sites linked me to the page with PS5 listings. In my mind it was someone being nice cause they had 2 or something. I tend to think the best of people. It's a flaw I have in these times.

    I'm sorry, but that's literally exactly how I would define "dumb."

    Well I was afraid the "good deal" would get bought out and since I thought the seller had 5 stars and 1200 reviews I pulled the trigger.

    Sure I'm street dumb, but I'm not "book" dumb. Also I was born blonde so maybe that's why haha.

    The answer is you can't.
    You're getting exactly what you deserve.

    It also seemed a little sketchy because I got it for 500 dollars which is the retail price. Idk why they would sell something for that unless they got it as a gift for someone and decided not to give the gift maybe? Either way, I did purchase it. I'M just a little apprehensive about it.
    It’s $542 after taxes for a PS5 and eBay/PayPal take a total of 14% of the sale. So he’d have to sell for $600ish just to break even, let alone $500, where they’d lose $100, unless they somehow “acquired it”.

    Not to mention theyd have to be a saint to sell it for that price when it’s very easy to sell them at 700-800.

    In other words. You got scammed. Cancel it.

    Everything about that posting was a huge red flag. Fresh account, weird telephone contact requirement, price at a loss, no reviews\sales, bla bla bla.

    You should have known better, but i wish you can resolve the situation and not be at a loss.

    Good luck!

    Good thing you weren't dumb enough to call the seller and pay him directly. Then you'd really be fucked.
    You're getting exactly what you deserve.

    Well I can give you one thing. Ebay has really garbage layout, they tried to make it in my country but we have much much better and cleaner portal that is 1000x easier and more readable. Amazon isn't good either. Both portals failed.

    Next time make the thread before you do the questionable thing.

    This guy is probably working out of a country half-way around the world where nothing will be done.

    From the refund notice, it sounds like he's some Indian dude.

    This is what happens when you grow up in Azeroth instead of the real world, people.
    Why am I back here, I don't even play these games anymore

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.
