Seller won't answer e-mail but before reporting to Ebay would like to know how I

A company that I consult for has just upgrade dall their dells. This involved dumping loads of XP disks. None of them had the COA as they were stuck on the base units. I would suggest that you have be sold a pup. the wording of the Ebay advert is very important and you need to read it carefully...did he advertise an XP disk or a disk and COA. In any case I would nail him pronto.

ps...I have 30 of the disks and am using them, one by one, as drink mats in my office. (the company uses 2000 so they dump the disks)
