I have tried filing an eBay claim, and while I have done this in the past on other items it appears that auto's are another beast to which your only option is calling eBay. That got me to a call center to which the person on the other end of the line seemed to have no interest in my issues, couldn't answer my questions, and kept giving the same scripted answers. She said they would file a report against the seller, but I honestly do not believe that to be the case. I got on google and started searching numbers for eBay and called numerous numbers with no success. All were either a recording or disconnected.
I also facebook messaged Ben Popken, author of the Stealerships article on Jalopnik. I'll see what media outlets I can get a hold of tomorrow in Houston.
How do I contact the admins?
