Bad ebay transaction go through paypal or straight to cc company?

I picked up a supposed complete motor from ebay that is missing many components and is basicaly junk.

I paid through paypal /through my credit card

should I use the paypal resolution thing or put the claim on my cc ?
Anyone that has direct experience with this have any suggestions.

Thanks,

Same thing happened with my co-worker. He bought a car engine on e-bay that turned out to be junk for the most part. He made a claim through PayPal. The seller didn’t respond within two weeks and the claim was granted. All this “buyer protection” turned out to be a bunch of crap. The seller had $200 on his PayPal account and that was transferred to my co-worker’s account. PayPal said they would try to get more money from the guy, but two weeks later nothing happened. So my co-work turned to his credit card, they did an investigation and refunded his money. He actually ended up with an engine, his $1000 back from credit card, and $200 from PayPal.

The only bad thing he had to get new PayPal account since his old one had -$1000 on it. BTW it happened 7 month ago.

Don't pay that part of the CC bill. Immediately refuture that charge in writting (but still pay any other part of your CC bill).

Contact both Paypal & the seller in writting to try & resolve - this will help you with the CC company - they want to see that your tried to resolve it & that the other party was not complying.

left voicemail a few times,
I emailed through ebay
I listed most of what I found missing,
said he was selling for a friend and was not there at the time,
said he knew about it having a bad cam (not mentioned in auction) but not about missing parts and that he didn't know much about it.

I sent another email today through ebay to him to contact me,

was going to wait until tomorrow to file paypal complaint.

I called paypal, they said that that it fell under ebays buyer protection thing
that has at least a $25 fee, and if the motor has to be shipped thats another $40.

I could file though the credit card but what the paypal guy told me was that if that is done then they work on the sellers behalf to get the money back, for the seller unless he is found neglegent, and it was possible that some type of account restriction would happen to my paypal account.

its pretty obvious the motor was run without oil so most is junk, except the covers, not to mention the grocery list of missing parts.

at this point in time there is no complaint filed through paypal or cc so my options are still open.

I usually do ok with ebay. I had 2nd thoughts on bidding on this even though the guys feedback is pretty good, but most from buying stuff.

should have listened to my inner voice.

yeah, wait a day to see if the guy will give you back your money first. I know a few people who were able to return items to the seller. If this guys gives you shit about it .... sick the dogs on him.

Well paypal came through,
I filed a dispute with them.
The whole process took awhile
but I got a full refund minus what I spent to ship it back.
shipping was only 20 so aside from being a huge waste of my time
I'm satisfied

Glad it turned out OK.
Sorry, missed your previous question. They got a new Pay Pal account in his wife's name.

glad you got your money back.

Im trying to deal with ebay, and see if they will start a dispute against a seller. The guy hasn't sent the item, or it was lost in the mail. The problem is that i went over the time period to file any dispute. Because i "tried" to work with the seller.
