Mastodon guitarist Bill Kelliher has taken to Facebook to warm he was ripped off on eBay after selling a guitar to someone in Germany.
The kid who bought the guitar wanted to return it after receiving it but returned an empty box to Kelliher, yes without the guitar.
Before Kelliher had a chance to do anything about it, eBay refunded the $1275 the kid paid even though he did not send the item back leaving the Mastodon guitarist out of pocket.

“hey everyone and Merry Christmas, this is Bill from the band, i recently sold a guitar on Ebay to a kid in Germany. now long story short, he didn’t like the guitar so asked for a refund. i gladly said “send the item back and i will give you a refund” well he opened a case and somehow Ebay Germany decided in his favor and refunded his money $1275 , WITHOUT EVER SENDING THE ITEM BACK!!!!!! i’m not interested in hearing any shit talk about ebay or Germans. it’s really just the PRINCIPAL that i’m fighting for. to not let these things just go. maybe someday you will be in the same situation and be able to DO something about it. so please post only if you can help. believe me i have called Ebay, Paypal,German Ebay…you just get shuffled around and NO ONE wants to take the time to hear or see the evidence that i have about this petty shit. thanks for your time and help”.
