Sorry to hear about that Neo Geo lot you bid on. I hope you get the entire amount back, but as you already know PayPal is always heavily on the side of the buyer, so I doubt you'll need any luck to get it back.

FYI, I've seen the exact same lot pop up for auction on ebay several times. The auction title is the same every time. It's definitely not a case of a seller realizing the value of the lot last minute, and then backing out.

Oh, geez, for real? So the account really was hacked! The account holder hasn't been helpful at all (account has been restored, selling photos of nuns again, but ignoring most of my messages).

Yeah, I don't get it...how does the hacker expect to make any money when everyone just recovers through a PayPal claim?

I imagine some folks might drag their feet, hoping and praying it's real, so not filing a claim? I mean, ebay actually closed it because of high value, told me to contact paypal, spent 2 hours on the phone last night and still am not refunded, so I mean, there's a chance of getting away with it. If nothing else, a loan.
