    Okay so I paid $63 to someone April 28th for some eggs that never came and were never shipped. I sent over 10 emails with one response saying they'd ship them out the following Monday (never happened). I finally filed a Paypal dispute, which they never responded to and I won it, but they couldn't recover any funds. I paid with a debit card.
    What gets me is I really think they're legit and just got busy then the birds stopped laying and now they're ignoring my emails because they don't want to give a refund. Would contacting my bank do any good? Anyone have any ideas where to go from here?

    You need to leave feedback on the forum about them. They may respond to that or at least worn people about them.

    You should post their name so other people will know not to buy for them if they don't make things right.

    They are a BYC member, but I responded to an ad on BantamCallDucks and a Hatching egg yahoo group. I hate to give any names until I'm sure they're not going to make it right.
    Does anyone know if I can get my money back on from a debit card transaction?
    This is the email I got from PayPal. Id love to know if they're still using the same paypal address. The conclusion I got was that if anyone else sends money to them, I'll get it?

    After careful review, we have concluded our investigation of the Buyer
    Complaint described below.

    We have decided in your favor, however, we were unable to recover any funds
    from the seller's account. As stated in the PayPal User Agreement, recovery
    of funds associated with a Buyer Complaint cannot be guaranteed.

    Please know that we will make our best effort to recover the funds in
    question if they become available in the seller's account in the future and
    will take appropriate action against the seller. Such action may include
    issuing a warning, a temporary restriction, or terminating the account.
    Keep in mind that PayPal uses a number of factors to determine when to take
    action, including member complaints. Due to privacy laws, we cannot discuss
    the details of any action taken. We hope you understand our policy and that
    it assures you that you are safe using PayPal.

    Considering it's been almost 2 months and the person is too rude to even email you back, I would def. tell everyone who it is and also post on places like

    I don't know whether you can get your money back, I doubt it, but I feel strongly that you should post feedback here, since they are a member here. At this point, I would certainly not worry about their making it right; not going to happen. BYC people shop places besides BYC, and would want to know.

    If by some wild chance they should refund the money, you can always edit your feedback.
