I bought an item from a dude on the big auction site. I offered him a buy it now price which he accepted thus he ended his auction and I sent him funda via paypal... 2 months later I don't have the item. What should I do- the guy stopped communicating a month ago and I don't think Paypal is going to do anything since the deal was done outside of the auction site. He lives in US and I'm in australia... what should I do or am I S.O.L.?

yes..S.O.L. You see, if you had been in the USA, then you have some rcourse, but since the item was bought off Eflay and you are not in the USA, you have no protection. However, depending on HOW you made payment may be an option. If it was through a credit card and less than 60 days (I am guessing on the 60 because I have seen 60 days) you may be able to file fraud charges with your credit card.
