Joys of eBay, right? I guess I'll know more when I receive the book back, which I'm not expecting to be the IH 181. I've been directed to call eBay and speak to High Value Claims department. What happens then, I have no idea. As new developments happen, I'll be sure to post them. 

One thing I will definitely be doing if the book does not come back is alerting any comic shops/pawn shops in New Bedford, MA area about the book and its serial number.

How can Ebay make an informed decision either way? It's not like either one of you can prove he got the right book?

One more reason not to use eBay to sell items that are this valuable.  Selling on consignment with a reputable dealer gets you the indirect added benefit of said dealer having insurance and lawyers in place to deal with situations like this.

After reading that guy's message to you.....I can tell he's lying. The line where he says "I paid you more than enough money for that book" tells me everything I need to know about this guy. Who would use a line like that if they had just been ripped off. Ebay should be able to see directly thru this guy......but the question is will they do anything about it.

They sent me a mail telling me that it was removed becauae the delay was customs not me.  On this case the sending them an email worked better for me than calling them

I would film the opening of the box, preferably at the Post Office or with the mail man witnessing you open it.

I know that, I was talking about when he gets the book back.

"Buyer" has just dropped the item in the mail for return. A day before the deadline to return. Will provide updates and figure out next steps when it arrives.

Well...One quick bummer update for everyone. On the bright side, it will be a learning experience for others.

I called Collectibles Insurance Services to find out what my next steps should be if the book does not come back. Turns out they will cover loss and damage by the shipping service after you sell a book out of your collection, but they do not cover fraud or scams such as this.

So yeah, just be aware of that...

@awakeintheashes, were you able to contact the local authorities of this d-bag to see if there was anything else that could be done?  I think that was mentioned in a prior post as a potential option.

Not yet. I will if the book I sold him does not come back. Thanks for the tips.

Made an offer for a book, I countered, they countered, I accepted..and 5 minutes later, asked to cancel.

Time waster.
