It's this kind of nonsense that has me almost entirely done with ebay for good...or ill for that matter. I've just bought a lens for my P67 from Keh.com and been 100% satisfied. In fact, it's better than I could have expected for a lens graded EX...I can find only one miniscule scratch on the thing...and the price was just too good to pass up. Ebay might make sense if you can't find what you'd like to buy anywhere else, but there are just too many decent second hand outlets with ongoing reputations to uphold to take a chance on ebay.
