I hope you have good luck getting it.
One thing you can do is ask to have a photo sent to you with something particular beside the item like that days newspaper, it proves the seller owns it.
A few years ago there was a European seller on Ebay who copied other sellers photos from their listing and used these to make his auction for the sword.
He never owned the sword, just started a listing and collected payment.
When you scan auctions enough you remember seeing particular photos.
That seller was soon kicked off but they have a way of creeping back.
