So about a week ago I ordered this Bower Macro Ring Flash on Ebay, and when I got it, the damn thing didn't work. So I have been trying to contact the seller, I bought it from him because he had great reviews and a like 98% + out of like 4000 sells. But I want to know if worse comes to worse and he doesn't refund me, can I file mail fraud? If so how?

You should contact ebay then give them the auction number and seller username and give a breif description about what happened. That's what I did when I bought my Nikon D50 and it was a fake.

Hope this helps! :D

Yeah I know, I took the cheap way out( bad idea and I have no idea why I did). If I can get a refund then I will be able to get my camera sooner, that is all I need and I will be set.

Nathan,

If you decide to go the mail fraud route see this: http://postalinspectors.uspis.gov/forms/MailFraudComplaint.aspx There's an option in one of the menus that has "misrepresentation of product/services". I think your situation would be covered by this. However, you may have better luck just dealing with eBay, Paypal and/or your credit card company (if that's what you used).
