I really, really hope that I am wrong...but.....
I just looked at your auction, and, I am sorry. My gut reaction is that you have been scammed. This person says they ship overnight immediately with tracking. They will probably reply to emails to get time to "drain" their Paypal account. Send them email on Monday, and see if you are sent a legitimate tracking number that you can actually track by Monday night. If they don't reply or send tracking, then...
I believe that if it is a Paypal "buyer protection program logo" (blue shield below seller's name) then you are covered by Paypal up to $500 and then by EBAY up to $200 additional with a $25 deductible. All in all, I believe you could be out a good bit of money. It also takes a good bit of time to get your money back if you do recover it. PLEASE UNDERSTAND....PAYPAL IS NOT A BANK, THEY ARE NOT A CREDIT CARD, they are NOT there to protect you. Since a year or so ago, they are owned by EBAY, and they exist solely to be a medium for auction payments. That's all they are. Do NOT be suckered into thinking that they are a bank or a credit card company, or that they are safe to use. Your deal may be good, and it may be bad. I have lost about $500 through Paypal. Each time, I thought that I had followed all of the rules to be covered. I HAD NOT!!! From this $500 loss I got $145 back from EBAY on one transaction, so I am out $355!!
Each time, the deal was almost "too good to be true". Each time the seller quickly replied to all of my emails and questions, until I paid, and then I never heard from them again!!!
