YAET - Payment on hold, cannot get refund

Here's the problem in a nutshell - I bought a book that was advertised as "Like New" condition, but the book was in barely "good" condition (bordering on "Acceptable"). Since the seller does not respond to emails, I tried to open an "Item not Described" case under the eBay buyer protection policy. The problem is that the buyer has a -1 rating (I know, I should have known better) so he has not been given the money yet (its on hold at Paypal). So when I try to open a case I keep getting the message "the item has not been paid for yet" even though I do have a paypal transaction as a buyer that proves that it has been paid. When I try to contact eBay, it routes me to some screens to describe what the problem is but I always end up arriving at the "item has not been paid for yet" screen. What should I do? Is there anyone who knows what the ebay customer service phone number is? (I know that they keep changing this).

Well, this thread has veered off the intended topic

Fortunately, the first response was extremely helpful. Thanks JoeyOh! They had to manually create a case for me.

Mods, please close. Thanks!

I pondered the same thing almost two years ago. Looks like he hasn't been around since April.
