hi. I have a problem and can someone help me with a solution please. I bought a product that I did not receive. I paid it through paypal. I tried several times to contact the seller but without any answer. I reported the problem to paypal. paypal received a tracking number from the seller but that package was not mine and was delivered to someone else. I contacted Fedex who told me that the package was not mine. therefore paypal closed my claim in favor of the seller. But it is not fair. the seller sent a false tracking number. I paid for that product and I will not receive it. I want the product purchased or the money back. how can i solve the problem? thank you in advance

Paypal is just a payment processor that gives you 'some' buyer and 'some' seller protection.
So disputes for non receipt of item are mostly automated. Seller provides tracking that shows delivery = seller wins.
So then its your turn to do some work to assist Paypal in recovering your purchase price from your seller.

Firstly ring customer services and tell them that the number is fake or that the item was shown as shipped before you purchased it. With that information they may well just issue you a refund.

Secondly if they don't then... APPEAL
To submit an appeal on the dispute that was closed, PayPal asks that you obtain a detailed report from the shipper/courier (on their letterhead or some other form of official stationary) that includes the address the seller gave them for the shipment. Or one that includes a statement mentioning your address and saying the item was delivered to a different address. THEY DON'T HAVE TO SAY WHICH ADDRESS IT WAS SENT TO, JUST THAT IT WAS NOT DELIVERED TO YOUR ADDRESS.

Check tracking in below link to see where it went.

When you have that, contact PayPal via phone (log on to your account and click contact at the bottom of the page, or via Facebook (send a Private Message to PayPal) or via Twitter (send a Direct Message to @AskPayPal) and say you want to appeal the denial of the dispute based on the shipper saying the item was delivered to a different address. Once it's submitted (you will be provided with directions on how to do that), the dispute will be reviewed further and a determination will be made.

You also have the option to contact your card issuer if you funded your paypal payment that way and see if they will do a chargeback for you.

Kudos / Solution appreciated.

The exact same thing happened to me.  No delivery, seller claims it was delivered, PayPal sided with seller.  I don't think I will use them anymore.  One other time the wrong product was delivered and the seller wanted me to pay postage to return it to China!  PayPal sided with them, too.
