I got ripped for $100 for an mp3 player. The seller actually emailed me and
told me he knew it was broke but needed the money and he was "sorry". I left
his the worst negative feedback possible. That's all you can do.

All that makes sense but we are talking about a $50 item, do you think the
FTC is going to jump on it? With Ebay, the victim can leave negative
feedback, if the seller is unresponsive in offering a refund, but the
shipping costs are not normally refunded so it's a poor exercise for
everyone. It is much more prudent to thoroughly querie your seller and
check his feedback. Make sure you ask the right questions, etc.
