    did you pay with Paypal? If you did, then you get a 30 day protection guarantee if you get ripped off or conned - however I don't know if this covers damaged good.

    However, if you received it damaged, I would contact the seller and ask for a replacement and your money back and then leave negative feedback
    If you can't contact the seller, or they doesn't reply, then complain to eBay

    Internet Explorer

    Sellers are usually good.
    Buyers are a whole other breed! It can be like pulling teeth to get them to pay up!

    I did get my car from an eBay auction - from someone (now a friend) in Los Angeles!

    eBay is built on trust...If sellers didn't trust buyers to pay, or buyers didn't trust sellers to send the item, then the system would not work.

    In my experience, having bought and sold a few times before, I've had no problems.

    In my opinion, eBay is great - better than a lot of shops with the prices
    I've never had any problems anyhow.

    It really isn't EBay that you should complain. It would the seller, ebay technically has no contact with the actual item. I've boughten a few things and so far so good. But nothing beat ClickABid when it was still around...

    I've bought loads of things from eBay including graphics cards, xbox and pc games, mobile phones and auto parts and the only problem I ever had was one guy getting really sick so his wife had to handle it and she had to ask me how and where to send my stuff so I waited an extra day... Always check the seller's raitings and specifically the negative ones to see what trouble you could be getting yourself into, and if you don't feel comfortable with the seller DON'T BUY FROM THEM. It's just like in real life, if a sales person tries to pressure you into something just tell them where to go and leave...so if the item description is vague or is mainly just images and text from the manufacturer website I advise against buying that item.

    And always contact the seller and ask for more details, note their response. As a rule I only buy from people who can spell and use correct grammar, it indicates they have half a brain at least.
