That's probably the more likely scenario yeah, but the seller had a good reputation on ebay and many recommandations so yeah. It doesn't really matter. Either way, the money is gone and the item doesn't arrive. It happens I guessed. I tried ordering another one off Etsy now, let's just hope I can keep my faith in humanity and not get scammed a second time lol.
I did, but it had been over 45 days so I couldn't officially file a complaint with Paypal anymore. (It had to come from Hongkong, so I thought it was normal that it took a while and was too patient.) Anyway, it's not like I lost a bunch of money, I'm more disappointed that I still don't have a Sylveon plush as it's my favourite pokemon c:
aww, yeah I often don't trust stuff that comes from china (ordering online stuff that is) it's either super cheap and breaks/falls apart easy or doesn't come at all, I have bad experiences with chinese stuff off of amazon.
