Hi, everyone! I have some sad news and I really need your help with it. A few weeks ago, I won this lot on eBay. It contained one of my largest grails, a 1/1 Cyndaquil, and one of my smaller wants, a 10th Anniversary Pikachu. I was so excited to get the lot for such a low price, and I couldn't wait for it to come. I paid immediately hoping to get my items before Christmas. Fast-forward a few days, and I get a notice saying that the seller opened a claim. I check it out, and they say that they want to cancel the transaction. eBay gave me an option to accept or deny the cancellation, and of course, I canceled. The seller also refunded my money. I got a bit freaked out, paid the money once more, and send them a message asking what was going on and if I'd still get my items. I hate to admit it, but between now and then, I've probably sent more than 6 messages. I'm completely irate about this. A few days ago, I opened a claim with no response. Then, I saw a post belonging to a member here which contained some of the plush that were in that lot. Those Hasbro plush are really common, so I figured it was just a coincidence, but then I saw that 10th Anniversary Pikachu plush, so I figured it couldn't hurt to ask. I sent them a message, asking if that was their eBay account, and they told me it wasn't...but that they had actually bought the lot after the seller claimed I didn't pay within 2 days (which of course, isn't true). I never thought that I'd be so frustrated over plush, but you guys have no idea how much I wanted that lot...what do I do? I cannot put into words how frustrated I am. I'm sure that eBay will be on my side when it comes to the claim, but I don't want my money back. I want the lot. I don't think that there's anything I can do besides buy the plush back, but the main reason I didn't buy the plush in the first place was because it was cost prohibitive for me. Please help.
