    I have to say, I have ran into some "High Maintenance Sellers" over the years as well!

    Actually not, a postal money order is like most other money orders, its money tied into an order to the addressee. As such the money was still intended to get to the seller, and for the seller to even cash the money order would not be a federal offense.

    However if he does cash the money order, it allows for the buyer a record that the seller did indeed take money for the said item, which can be used in a civil claim that the item paid for needs to get to the buyer.

    Yes, however since he paid by money order that means he probably sent it via US mail as well - that is more than enough to get the postal inspector involved. I've followed this route myself, and I know it works.

    Actually Karl,

    The postal inspector will investigate a non-delivery on a purchase paid for with a USPS money order as a case of mail fraud, I have had to start a couple of these investigations in the past year and they are very quick in getting things solved, just the threat of USPS fraud often times will get the seller to clean his/her act up...

    Yes, I've had a seller purchase an item at retail for me after I made a complaint to the Post Office - even after he had applied for personal bankruptcy.

    Deal with this person only at your own peril.
    From eBay's web site:

    Publishing contact information of another eBay member in any online public area is not permitted.

    It wasn't necessary to give out personal info; the user name would have been sufficient. BTW, I think you mis-spelled it.

    They can revoke/suspend your eBay account if reported. After all it is their website with their TOS...

    It is also a violation of privacy which is uncool, even if you think the guy might be trying to rip you off.

    As pretty much all information now a days is in databases attached to the internet, there is no violation of privacy, if you think there is, then you are mistaken, yes they can suspend a member, but your name and most of the time you address, your history and such are now considered public record, so other than suspension on the ebay website, there is not much that can be done....because publishing someones name is not a violation of privacy. In fact ebay in their own sense is publishing the same information with their feedback forum, because if you are a seller or a buyer, you can request the information attached to a username, so they are in a sense violating their own policies by makeing so called "Private" information available in a public nature..
