Complaint / review text:
I bought a 2006 VW Golf 5 2.0 GTI DSG (transaction #) from a woman, Linda, a verified eBay user. I received an invoice from eBay, with the purchase amount of R69,000.00, and the payment details. I had to pay a deposit of R30,000.00, using the Western Union transfer facility, on which I had to email the seller the receipt, with the 10 digit MTCN#. A day after the first payment, she mailed me asking for another R30,000.00, to which, I replied saying that was not the agreement, but paid in the amount, after she said the car will be delivered to me.
Two days later she again mailed me saying i had to pay R16,800.00 towards carbon tax. I again queried this, but paid in the end. She again mailed me, saying I must pay another R18,900.00 so that the Transcar company can start shipping the car. She mailed me that the car will be delivered on Monday, November 28, but nothing happened. Today, she again asked for another R9,000.00, but I refused, asking for her to refund all my money, because I no longer want the car. What can I do now because she doesn't reply anymore?
I thought that the deal was legitimate, because of the eBay invoice. What now? Can i get my money back? I received the invoice from eBay Support [email protected]
