I bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 on Ebay auction from user name maiyabell091113 I paid through Ebay as usual, but 5 minutes later the money I paid was refunded and a Paypal invoice for the phone was issued to me in the name of Andrew Butler. I immediately called Paypal to check if I would be protected if I paid the invoice, and a reassuring American man looked at the transaction and said I would be - and so I paid it. I Upon receipt of the money I received an email from Drew Bell (Bell??) saying that my phone would be sent the next day.....Well 10 days later no phone, and no reply to the numerous emails I sent. On calling Paypal to try and claim my money back I was hoffied when I was told, by the woman at Paypal, that I wasn\'t protected at all, and the man I had previously spoken to must have misunderstood!

So please avoid buying anything from anyone calling themselves Andrew (Drew) Butler or Andrew (Drew) Bell from Belfast, Ireland. Ebay user name: maiyabell091113 (although I\'m sure he must have other accounts in different names email: tara.1985.ab@gmail.com (Though no doubt dumped this email by now)
