I bought an article on ebay which was not as advertised and

Resolved Question:

I bought an article on ebay which was not as advertised and was not suitable for purpose I complained to Ebay and was told to return item. The haulier was unable to deliver because of the actions of the seller but I did not find that out until a day after the time allowed by ebay and Paypal. I got a small claims decree at a sheriff court and it was taken to the high court in England and sheriff officers have twice attempted to collect from the seller without success. Can I make claim against Ebay and or Paypal under law despite them making an arbitrary time limit. I am not happy that the debt collectors and sheriff oficers have acted with due diligence and given me value for the money paid for serving the decree. The article was worth about £400 but the figure is now over £1000. Do I have any further recourse?

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

So I can still seek a decree against Ebay notwithstanding their time limit being expired? Do I just seek a decree in local sheriff court if they do not negotiate?

Yes you need to do this in your local Court if they refuse to negotiate
