The Mslara... eBay account is supposed to be the official eBay channel for Innersound, straight from the makers, so I hope it's just a matter of days...
Can you give the link to the sale so we know exactly what we're talking about ?

Day 1 after forwarding the 2nd chance email to mslara, no reply. I will give 3 days before getting ebay involved with trying to recoup the money. Or should I forgo the 3 day wait and go for the jugular?

Udahti has informed me that he had received this second chance offer through email (and was offered to complete the purchase by contacting the seller through email). Does not smell good in my opinion...

Spoke to ebay officials. They have suspended the account, verifying the email and contacting the seller. At first they said that wire transfers are not covered under ebay policy. That almost gave me a heart attack. But after explaining the loss of funds and money getting sent to an "ebay bank account" they changed their tune a little bit. A report has been filed with Internet Crime Complaint Center. I hope it gets resolved soon. :cry:

There is some dialog going back and forth but it seems like there is a language barrier between mslara and me. I have used the translator to switch english to german and yet she asks the same questions over and over. This is starting to irritate me when its there black and white. Are there any german english speaking players out there?

jrenv.engineer60@gmail.com is the key in this Scam so beware. Astrantia was kind enough to do some digging on this fiasco and found information about others on ebay reporting this have been taken by this particular person on other things. This is the story:

Finally managed to get to a laptop where I can check my inbox, hope it hasn't been long since you emailed. My wife and I celebrate 15 years of marriage and we're on vacation. Long story short, the winner after speaking on the phone, waited for him all day long came up and wanted a straight swap. If that wasn't enough the bugger almost made us miss our flight. I am willing to accept your last bid price X Dollars. I've got nothing to hide, agree with and recommend for your peace of mind a proper inspection before cash changes hands. I will only proceed using the eBay Protection Program. You will get 5 days for item inspection, I do accept returns. I can't accept a direct payment through this program, all payments will be handled by eBay. Seems eBay won't release the funds to me until you confirm the item's as described. If I just knew about this ebay program from the start. There's always something new to learn. Next week I'll return home and would like to have a buyer waiting for me.
If you wish to proceed further please send me your:
FULL NAME and THE SHIPPING ADDRESS.
I am looking forward to hear from you.
Best Regards!
P.S. My cell phone says no network coverage sad.gif but I do check emails regularly"
