This rat scammer tricked me
Maybe cause its the first time i use ebay and in my country there is no paypal so i asked him wu he took advantage of this, at 1:30 am his time china he picked up the money and ignored all my emails that i sent.
He was replying in 5 mints now he disappeard and did not hear back from him.

Any chance you are over reacting?
You sent payment on June 2 2016 @ 6:50pm
Your last pic shows communication at 8:57pm

I assume these are local Lebanese time. It is 10:26pm 'ish in Lebanon right now - right?

China is sleeping now. Maybe give the guy a break? Why do you think you were scammed - because of a shipping time "issue"?

I think patience is in order. Like umichchris noted - he has great Ebay feedback and his website looks legit. And, he maybe reading and taking money at 2am, but he needs to sleep too.
I would say give it a day or so - in China - and see what comes of it. It is only 5am in China (midnight in Lebanon, 6pm in US EST)

Did you contact Ebay?

I think you will be all right - I hope so.

You have a few things in your favor. As others have said the guys eBay feedback is very good and he has over 200 items for sale. I doubt very much he's going to risk all of those sales and years of good standing for your purchase. I bet over the next few days you get a shipping notification a tracking number or both. When attempting to communicate with the seller keep your head and just ask for a reply with a tracking number. I'd say if you don't hear anything from him by the middle of next week you're not getting your gear.

A couple mistakes you made were making a purchase outside of eBay and using Western Union to save a few bucks. EBay has rules against these very things to protect the customer. EBay's rules are heavily weighted for the buyer. Sadly if he doesn't send your goods you have little recourse besides reporting him to eBay. Unfortunately you'll also have to report yourself if it comes to this which could lead to you being removed also. Your other option next week would be to alert your credit card to a fraudulent seller.

Give the seller some time. They all cannot respond to emails 24/7 right on the minute. Of course he will need to collect your money first before he ships out your product the following day. Be worried if he doesn't respond within the next couple days but for now, relax and have patience. This is the age we live in now, nobody has patience and want their emails responded to right away.
