Trading advice

Hi guys

After a bit of advice from people, I paid for an item via PayPal (for goods/services) off of a member on this forum in early February. No signs of the said item in the post and it's difficult to get hold of the seller.
Am I right in thinking that I have been scammed or should I hold out a bit longer and try to get hold of the seller?

Thanks, Andrew.

The user has been on here a long time and frequents a specific tuner so I would suggest they just being lazy rather than scammy. They were online yesterday as well so build your posts to 15 and send a PM

My advice if its been over a month is to dispute it mate. I think PayPal give you 45 days to log a complaint so be careful.

Get with the times mate...

On Paypal you can pay for an Item and open a case 5 month 29 days later and still get your money back.. Ridiculous.
