    Glad you got a refund but yeah be very careful with anything essentially new or high demand on places like Ebay or even any other online shop with mail out that isnt an actual shop thats been trading for awhile (Facebook marketplace, gumtree, craigs list etc if not buying with pick up).
    Many times the scammers are not in your country and can be in countries where their actions carry little or no repercussions.
    They use catching titles which doesnt even need to reflect the item at all or tags to bring it into a search it doesnt belong in. I see it constantly in Aquarium and other items on ebay, ill search for a specific item and the add will pop up with the right description in the title and a good price, but in the add the item at that price is not the one in the title, and the title product could be 10x the cost it appeared to be. Those are also legitimate stores doing it with thousands of feedback and ratings etc too. Most times the items are sitting in China awaiting shipment so the quoted shipping time is also weeks or months wrong. They have tricks to avoid too much negative feedback aswell.

    It isn’t too hard to get money back from eBay. I have on a few things that never arrived but they were cheaper than what you got. Good luck though.

    Hey it says gullible on the ceiling. Lol but I understand your line of reasoning, Ebay should certainly protect people from scammers so it's not unreasonable to feel confident in making a risky purchase.

    If you paid by PayPal or credit card it’s super easy to get money back. You can also return item as well during 30 days.

    OP got their money refunded by ebay but they should update the OP post to reflect that probably.

    Its probably one of those scam call centers based on India. Thats why they gave you a number to call. Heres an interesting channel to watch about those guys. You can even catch one of those scammers here on mmo champion computer forums.
