    there wont be much use for his deportation skills in the uk....

    Got all my fans for my DefineXL in. eventually managed to get the fans i was looking for and not had to source it from the U.S so im well happy about that.

    I ordered the fans first because I wanted to find out if i needed to burn £30 on a fan controller.

    Cant put in an order for the case yet as im a little short and my friend who owes me £130 hasnt been available to payup

    I have emailed the guy to refund £60 directly to my bank account via bank transfer hope he complies because -20 isn't a pleasant sign on a bank account.

    a similar thing happened to me 2 nights ago. Except i didnt get charged 6 times.

    I was up until 4am trawling Ebay for some Yate Loon fans which i was having a real fucking hard time getting. Spent days looking for these things from a UK source on Ebay, and at 4am i finally found them as they seller had listed them as their model number instead of their actual name.

    I bought a few items off the guy. First payment went through just fine. then the other payment just wouldnt go through, and i tried about 4 times in 1hr and it wouldnt work.

    I hope you can get your money back.

    you people have so many problems with ebay it's unbelievable

    depends on
    a)why your getting rid of the S2
    b)how good condition the S2 is in
    c)whether a athlon x2, 4GB Ram with Amd 512MB 5470 (passivly cooled) is good enough for you

    I think chargeback will deposit the money into paypal fund and not my bank, but i will contact paypal if the seller won't return my money.

    I got 99 problems but a bitch aint one

    If you can get their support email or phone number. pass it to me, Ive spent years trying to find a way how i can get my bank account fully verified with PP.

    My PP is pretty FUBAR. I cant verify my bank account with PP, but yet. I can pay for stuff when i have no funds in my PP and it will charge it to my debit card which is obviously linked to my bank account???

    Ive only managed to get through to PP support ONCE and they were worse then any overseas call center ive ever experienced but via email then actually on the phone. THATS HOW BAD THEIR SUPPORT IS!!

    call centers in india are bad, but you know service is just fucking horrific if you can experience the callcenter, but through email.

    There are no words in the human language to express what a bunch of fucktards PP support is.

    If you actually managed to actually get through to them and fix your problem with their help, then jesus probably loves you a lot

    Lol i was lucky enough to get through to Microsoft call center couple years ago about my 360!
    And Cheesy this is only a one time thing i have had problems with ebay.
    And as for paypal i would only use them as last resort since i know most huge company like them will have horrible customer support.

    when PP first started off on the interwebs. they got taken to court and sued successfuly by watchdog cuz they bury their contact details underneath a ton of webpages on their website.

    obviously theyve made it easier for you to contact them but you still need to dig really hard for their details or cheat their automated helper thing, make them think you need to contact them about a seperate problem entirely.

    their are websites that have listed PP phone numbers and emails. but ive never recieved a response

    I hate dealing with non-uk call centers. though, some callcenters do posess staff that CAN speak good english. but those are like 1 in a million.

    I hate you for hating ebuyer support! think of all the milfs with sexy accents working there! trying to ease your stress levels with their sultry voices when your hard drives decides to have a parachuting accident!
