    So I'm on eBay, and then I make an account (no credit card given), and then I click on "BUY" on one of the items, and it says "You sure you want to buy it? Blah blah blah", ext thing you know... I get a message saying, "Your item will arrive on June 22nd, please have the money ready"

    ? Are they serious?:confused:

    Yeah, like I signed up (no credit card), then it says "BUY NOW" or "BUY THIS PRODUCT NOW" or something. I click on it, and it says "If you click buy now, you must pay for the item"... So I didn't think if it you know... and I clicked "Buy" (again, no credit card entered). And two days later (today) I get an email:

    Along side with adress + username

    holy fuck!

    The guy came! Brought shit worth of almost $600 and I told him I didn't want any of it! So he said that the items stay with me,and it is my 'duty' to go and pay for them through eBay...What do I do now?

    I'm thinking of just going "... I never got the items" and keep all of it
