As of this moment my refund is residing in my PayPal account, in GBP.  I will wait a day or so, but I imagine I may have to manually transfer the funds to my bank.  (Hopefully no transaction fee because it's in GBP...)

And no, eBay cannot "block the money to PayPal", which is now a separate company from eBay.

I am in the process - raised claim - mailed off the stamps (tracking number required; only way to do that is USPS International Priority Mail, $32.95 USD) - they were delivered 3 days ago - awaiting refund.  Never again, absolute PITA...

Hello Tad, did you raise a claim to Ebay ? They can block the money if paid by Paypal. Do not miss the deadline. JC

For my money "sussex-stamps is "as crooked as a coathanger", and I will no longer have anything to do with him.  For the small minority of items which may be genuine it is just not worth the trouble.  I bought 2 lots, both of which were fakes - a month later I am still dealing with returning them for a refund.

The dealer is extremely unresponsive, and being that he is overseas does not make things any easier...

 ??? ??? .   Well, sussex-stamps has sold many fakes. For my there are 2 possibilities: or they are fakes or they are private surcharges for contract with the Mexican Mail (unregistered prepaid stamps). More interesting is to know if already exist any cover. I think that is the first option because in case of "add a new values" on the stamps they had to be registered
