    Anyone Know Italian?

    I bought a Christmas gift for my son from Ebay back on the 30th of November, and it turns out the seller is from Italy. I used Paypal, and they sent me a confirmation the money was sent. Yet I haven't received the item.

    I did get a email from the seller, yet it's in Italian. And the only word I understand is the reference to me being a "Gentile".

    I'm considering contacting Ebay because I'm having a very difficult time getting a hold of this seller.

    If anyone knows Italian I'd be more then happy to PM you then email so you could translate it for me. I'd much appreciate it.

    If no one bites, do a google search for Italian to English translator. There are some pretty good web utilities out there that will translate his letter for you.

    Gentile means nice, sweet, kind, etc. Probably not what you think it means

    I don't speak fluent Italian, but PM it to me and I'll probably be able to figure out the gist.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Thanks everyone for your responses. I used the babelfish.altavista site and it worked great.

    He is basically thanking me for his purchase and hopes I will leave a positive feedback.

    I went to the Ebay website and used babelfish to send him a correspondence in Italian that I haven't received the item and when can I expect shipment. Keeping fingers crossed, but that is a cool website. Thanks again all.
