Have you actually been scammed or simply going from what feedback they now have??
If the seller took the money but did not send the item, you MUST report it to Ebay. They can try and resolve the situation, depending on what has gone on, OR you make call to your local police station IF the situation cannot be resolved. Ebay/Paypal will help you decide.
No need to get some court order, Ebay and the Police will deal with it.
Trust me, even with a fake address and name, the police can investigate. I have a friend of a friend, who nearly got sent down for doing something fraud on Ebay and used fake names. Didn't take long for the police to find them!
EDIT: KittySue in the UK the police DO get involved. Fraud is not a civil matter.
As I said, I have had the police involved and we won back our money!!!
Ebay/Paypal will tell you to call the police. They told us to!!
Had the police sort out a fraudster! MAKE sure YOU follow the rule book, to cover yourself, so get onto Paypal. Never mind this cloke and dagger *gaining information for a small fee* You may well incriminate yourself.
