wow, sorry to hear this happen to you....I am very cautious on ebay, try to find out as much as possible about the seller because I see all these horror stories....here in Florida what he did constitutes fraud in the inducement and can have severe consequences....you are right to follow up with a lawyer, we need to put a stop to this fraud on ebay

Someone needs to pay this bozo a little visit. Wish I lived closer, got some whacked-out friends that enjoy paying "visits".
