On christmas I bought a late model laptop that was missing a few parts on eBay for <50$. I have a hard drive and ram to throw in there and a new motherboard will cost about 120$. The machine is worth at least 600$. I paid and the seller sent a message saying he relisted and to get my money back. I want to computer, and not my money back. I understand eBay contracts are legally enforceable. Do I have any leverage in this situation to get my computer?

You can: 1) leave him a neg 2)decline cancellation if he does send one. Nothing more you can do.

They are.
Get an attorney, he will want a $15,000 retainer.

Decline cancellation and seller will eat the final cost fees. Probably he mistakenly listed the item and you bought it before he caught it. His loss. In any case, if too good to be true...

That what they say, but as a seller a phone to eBay will almost suredly get the FVF credited.
