I have a situation with a product purchased off of eBay. The item was paid for and my card was charged on the 27th. It is a time sensitive product that prevents seed grow in vegetation. I grow herb here in California under prop 215 and am totally compliant with the laws. Without this product a 40k to 50k loss is inevitable. The purchase was made on the 26th of June, giving one shipping address, with a delivery date of the 3rd of July and a second set of e same product was purchased on the 27th of June giving a separate delivery address and a agreed upon delivery date of Friday the 5th of July, this Was in no part a mistake. The seller had marked the items as sent and in the mail on the 29th of June as i had recieved an email from ebay comfirming this, meaning that they should have arrived on time. The seller then sent me this email today: "Dear buttworms,
I noticed that 5 of the reverse flower is shipping to 1 address in Santa Rosa ,CA and another 5 of the reverse flower is being shipped out to a different address also in Santa Rosa , CA ????? Please let me know if this is the case,i noticed the 2 different address and wanted to make sure before i shipped them out to you.Thanks again for your order. Once you confirm the address issue,your items will be delivered flat rate priority shipping and should only take 3 days to get to you.

Meaning that the time sensitive product that I have already paid for and am in great need of is not even in the mail yet.
I spoke to the seller today and he told me it will get there when it will get there and here is no contract
and he has signed nothing.
I am interested in filing a civil suit for the loss.
I am also wondering if there are any criminal charges of fraud for misrepresentation and lying about a note being charged for claiming that it had been shipped but has not.
