Ebay removed a $899. Macbook Air from sale for fraud... yet allowed me to "buy it now" and pay for it! I am an intelligent guy who has been using a computer for 25 years...yet I couldn't figure out how to make a claim on ebay! I kept going around in circles of artificial intelligence. (oxymoron). When I attempted to protect myself by stopping payment on the bank transfer of funds, they then charged my credit card & closed my Paypal claim. A claim once closed, can not be reopened on ebay!. Now I will have to wait two weeks before I can begin to get my money back from the credit card chargeback vis Paypal who also closed my claim.... The whole process of trying to deal with ebay and Paypal has been Kafkaesque...ruled by catch 22's. If ebay removes an item for fraud, they should help out, not screw the poor fool who bought it.
