I'm not sure what to do here. I received a $100 Dell egift card from a Samsung 32 LCD deal. I sold it on eBay for $94 (really less) to [personal info removed] ([personal info removed]@gmail.com) and emailed her a copy of it as well as mailing a printout of it. The card has been used and this morning I received an email from PayPal saying the buyer ( [personal info removed]@gmail.com) "did not authorize this purchase." So the payment is being reversed on my PayPal account 😕. I've contacted PayPal through the resolution center as their email says to and hope they side with me. I don't know what I could have done to prevent this.
In another related eBay problem, a Fitbit I sold was returned to me (undeliverable) because the address was bad and the buyer has not responded to my messages. I don't sell on eBay very often but get very annoyed with hassles like this and their fees.

Sorry. selling egift card on eBay is well, I can't fathom the thought of it. You almost have zero recourse as you might already beginning to figure out. As far as what you should done? Read the T&C closer. Selling eGift card on eBay is like running through a thornbush naked.
btw. remove the email and name of the "buyer". You have no idea if that's someone who are just as much a victim as you are.
FW has an Online Auction forum for eBay/PayPal related stuff, with some experienced folks (paging tlaxy, paging tlaxy) that could probably answer your questions. You could send a mod alert from your post, and ask the mod on duty to move this thread there.
