    Jim Galli does a lot of this. You might check with him.

    Re: E-Bay: What can I do If the buyer won't Pay?

    Had a buyer of a $10 item suddenly pay up 2-3 weeks late. Said he had had a heart attack......

    If it's a cheap enough item, hang out for a bit. Keep sending courteous reminders.
