Yeah, I went through the whole circus -- I got his contact info, called him,
e-mailed him -- over and over (BTW, his phone number is disconnected). I
contacted eBay's safe harbor program/buyer protection, eBay fraud center, etc.
I just need to wait to find out the result of their investigation. I may be
able to get back my money (minus the eBay "service fee").

Well, he's in Alabama and I'm in Maryland. I doubt that for $199 I'd go down
there to court. I did get a hold of others who were defrauded by him and added
them to my complaint...Maybe that'll help.
