Seller in ebay modified ad after payment. Seller scams and violation.

I ordered a used iPad Pro 12.9 inch. Friday, September 21st at 1 AM. After paying him via Paypal, he modifies on Ebay the wrong description of my purchase which is "Apple iPad Pro 2017 Silver 12.9" 512GB Wi-Fi + 4G iOS10 4GB RAM Tablet By FedEx

Message in ebay concerning my purchase at 1 AM September 21.

"We had to remove this listing from the site and you're not required to complete the transaction. If you've already sent payment, the sale should process as normal and you don't have anything to worry about. If you have any questions about delivery, please check tracking or contact your seller. If you run into any trouble along the way eBay is here to help. Please visit the Resolution Centre to help resolve any problems you may encounter.
This item has been shipped."

"It changes the web page of Ebay concerning my purchase

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/183445737406

"We looked everywhere.

Looks like this page is missing. If you still need help, visit our help pages.

Go to homepage ".

What and what should I do?


Udated September 21 at 4.21 PM. The seller modified
" Apple-iPad-Air-1st-Gen-32GB-Wi-Fi-9-7in-Space-Gray. "

And also, I notice can not leave a bad feeback. This option is not offer.

WOW! Amazing!

You wait to see what gets delivered by the expected delivery date, and if it's not what you ordered, file an item not matching description claim. That includes nothing arriving + not the iPad Pro you ordered.

It sucks that they do that, but I would never buy used iPad off eBay. Deal locally, less chance of being scammed. If Apple sells 32GB refurbs for over $600, paying someone $150 for a fake listing is not the best investment.

Your recent eBay transaction may be from a compromised account


Hello deafnessandhardhearing,

You were recently involved in a transaction for the following item:
183445737406 - Apple iPad Pro 2017 Silver 12.9" 512GB Wi-Fi+4G iOS10 4GB RAM Tablet By FedEx

We're writing to let you know that an unauthorized third party may have accessed the seller's account to list this item. The item has been removed from the site, and the transaction was cancelled. We ask that you take the following precautions:

- If you already paid for the item, you may be protected by eBay. Open a request with the Resolution Centre and choose "I bought an item. I haven't received it yet." You can access the Resolution Centre by visiting:
https://resolutioncentre.ebay.ca

- If the transaction doesn't qualify for eBay's protection, it may be because your payment isn't claimed by the seller or has been reversed. You can request an update on the status of the transaction by contacting the payment service provider.

- If you haven't paid for your item, consider this transaction cancelled and do not send payment.

In this situation, your account wasn't accessed by the third party involved. At eBay, we take a number of steps to help ensure the security of your account. Learn more about protecting your account at:
https://pages.ebay.ca/help/account/protecting.html

Thanks,

I had hoped we were done with this shenanigans. Looks like eBay will take care of it so chill out and wait it out.

In searching your eBay name deafnessandhardhearing it seems rfd is not the only place you have numerous "issues". Perhaps you need to reevaluate online purchasing.

It also seems like your eBay community thread suggested much the same - read your email from eBay, follow the process, and calm down.

Nothing to worry about, and they've already clearly communicated what to do - no need to blog here, it's already taken care of.
