Got the T shirt
...except in my case it wasn't a violin, just a sealed, genuine copy of some tat from Microsoft that happened to have a revoked licence key. Ebay wanted nothing to do with it although they pulled the account of the seller. Paypal were as about as co-operative as a Pit Bull on crack.
Paypal insisted on wanted written proof it was 'fake', Microsoft couldn't provide it, except from screen prints of their failed activation process, so Paypal suggested (I kid you not) I go to PC World and get a report from one of their 'experts' I was also against a timescale of a couple of days that Paypal had imposed on me (not related to ANY of their published conditions) If I didn't submit proof by that time then I would get no refund.
So I then asked for a UK address at which I could serve legal papers, repeatedly, via a number of electronic channels.
In the end they said I could fax, yes fax, not email or by post, a signed affidavit to their office in Dublin confirm I had 'destroyed' the counterfeit item, but they wouldn't guarantee a refund even if I did.
I asked them to confirm they were asking me to destroy any evidence that could be used in court to prove my case if they didn't refund my money. They confirmed they did.
Said 'legal document' looked like something thrown together by someone on a YTS.
I signed, but handed over the 'counterfeit goods' to a tame solicitor in case things went t*ts up.
The fax was permanently engaged, but after many hours it eventually got through, my money was refunded.
I still use Paypal, as their is not to my knowledge a practical alternative but I would not trust them at all. The sooner they are brought under control with suitable legislation in a territory that has some credibility the better.
