Another great communicator.
If he shipped already, he should be able to provide you with a tracking number. It is possible he was foolish enough to ship without tracking as some sellers do that to save $1. It is also possible that he is BS-ing you and has not shipped yet.
If he has good refs, you are probably okay. Otherwise, you might be in for a misadventure. But, as long as you did not gift the PP payment, you should be able to get your money back if you don't get the racket in the next week. If no racket by then, file a PP claim and unless he can prove delivery, you should get your money back from PP. If the racket ever shows up, cancel the PP claim.
How much did your speeding ticket cost?
