    so my little brother is currently in Iwak

    he bought an LS short block with tranny + clutch on ebay

    now he gets a message from the guy saying "sorry dood, ur stuff was stoled!!!11", I think he's already paid for it too

    I've never been Ebay scammed so what should he do?

    call paypal and dispute.

    if he payed with a credit card then he can dispute with them.

    if he mailed them a money order/check then he cant do shit

    he can file a paypal dispute online
    or he might to try writing to someone in the army or whatever branch he's in
    i'd be very suprised is someone didn't take an interest in one of our guys getting the shaft while they are overseas

    i was scammed with a transmission before...i payed with my debt card as a credit card...so it was through my bank...i contacted my bank...told them the situation...they creditted my money back...and went after the dude...but the usual procedure is to contact paypal about it...if they dont help...then go to your credit card company...or if it was through you bank...go to your bank...good luck man

    Well if it's stolen, he still doesn't have to pay for it. Contact Paypal.
