Heads up guys.

I tried buying something from lusopc with the Buy It Now option.  
Paypal (not Paypal Verified) was listed as a payment option so I went 
for it.

Tried paying for the auction immediately, found that the seller slapped 
a Paypal Verified restriction on there without saying so in the auction 

Emailed the seller, expecting this was some sort of mistake, and asked 
them to send me a request for payment for the auction without the 
Paypal Verified requirement and they did so.  Almost.  Tried to pay the 
request and what do you know, they slapped a Paypal Verified 
requirement on there.

This went back and forth for awhile, but they played stupid about it.  
Well today I get a nastygram from eBay telling me that the seller has 
filed a Non-Paying Bidder claim against me.

I went back and looked over the auction again ( 
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3011748729 ) and 
nowhere does it say "Paypal Verified".  The seller is trying to change 
the payment terms post-sale, and then getting nasty when I don't live 
up to that more restrictive change.  Then they have the stones to try 
to tarnish my name as a buyer (I'm one of the fastest paying buyers 
you'll ever have the pleasure of doing business with, usually 
submitting payment within 30 minutes of the close of auction).

Fair warning.  Steer clear of this creep.  I'm trying to get a real 
human being at eBay to look at this.
