    If you bought from a person with little or no feedback beware. If that is not the case then you will probably get your merchandise

    Review the seller’s feedback and test the seller’s communication before the sale.

    I purchased a set of grips and 2 magazines on GB yesterday. We exchanged emails before and after the closings; I’m not worried – Sellers had good feedback and prompt communication.

    GB is great for those of us who live (and shoot) in the middle-of-nowhere.

    Go to the Gunbrokers protection plan. When you log on go to "for buyers" then to the protection plan. Bulge

    Paypal provides buyers with a guarantee and protection against unethical sellers. Had this happen to me once and Paypal came to the rescue and got my money back. Just make sure you follow their procedures. iope this helps. JM

    How about giving us this person's user name so it doesn't happen to us.

    As already mentioned, check with GunBroker and PayPal. Both have protection plans.

    I was the only bidder on some brass on gunbroker.com a few days ago. At the last minute someone use the buy now function and out bid me. Then I noticed it said they were re-listed by the seller. Does that mean the seller is the one that out bid me ie they were just trying to bid me up?

    coho, its possib;e the person has more than one lot of brass and did an auto relist for another lot rather than do a whole new listing.

    What are the sayings? "Once bitten.....twice scourned ??" or "Once a mistake....twice a fool" Seriously, though, you MUST have some recourse. I've bought 2 guns off GB and NO problems.

    Hi,File a claim with Paypal for merchandise not received and they will refund your money.I have had to do it before,just make sure you follow their guidelines and it usually takes two to three weeks to get the money back but it can be done.Regards.

    stubs How long has it been ? Pay-Pal takes a little time . The biggest problem with internet sales is communication or lack of .

    If it,s only been two or three days give it some time . If I were you I would never Bid on anything . Let me guess you don,t have the sellers phone number right ?? No e-mail address no phone number no money .
