Paypal may take a bit of time but at least you will not lose $ if you cannot resolve this with the person you purchased with.

Will PayPal get involved or even let you file a dispute if the item was not purchased on EBay??

Yes, as long as you paid without sending the money as a gift.

around 9-11 or 9-12 EC Tackle started several threads of items for sale, the one in question has been moved or deleted. the one I was interested in was the Blue Water Candy king dusters. I PM'ed asking if any of these were the BWC Private Stock and if so, I would buy all he had at that price and where should I send the money. On 9-12 I got a reply back telling how many Private Stock dusters they had and what email address to send PayPal to.
9-13 PayPal payment was made
9-20 after hearing nothing from EC I PM'ed asking if they received payment
9-23 again, after hearing nothing I PM'ed EC again asking what is going on with the order
9-23 EC replys something along the lines of "sorry about the delay, was shipped Saturday (9-21) and if I didn't receive by Wednesday (9-25) to let them know
9-27 I PM'ed that I still have not received. No response
9-29 I PM'ed again that I still have not received. No response

I have PM'ed back and forth with several members here in the last two days and was assured that EC was just slow and I would receive the items but it would be nice to hear that from the seller.

I'm still hoping that they will show up in the mail today but I'm beginning to doubt it. I wont be out much money but it's the principle and I see where they have advertised some high ticket items (Rolex watch) and I'd hate for someone to get burned on that.

Man, that sucks. I've seen other threads regarding the same seller and also have seen other members defending him. I think it's time to stop defending this guy. His business ethics suck.

another day passes with no word from EC Tackle!
since starting this thread two other members have PM'ed me; one placed an order with EC and is out of the country so he is worried that he got ripped off too. another member said he ordered a kite rod and reel during the first week of September and has not received the rod/reel or heard from EC.
