called twice both reps including one supervisor now say they cant know if the seller has a balance in their account  but i should rest assured if and when i win the case PayPal will refund me and either take the money out of sellers account or put a -1500 balance on it
If there not sure if there's money in the accnt then something is wrong, they should and could see all the details in another's accnt, and even should the guy have taken all the money out already what good is to put a debit of 1500$? They could put a debit for $10,000 ,whats that going to do for you?
 If there's no money I couldn't care less what hold they will put, it seems like no money around with the seller, and if so I would take it further with amex, you don't want to go through yomtov with a $1500 loss to think about, go for amex. 
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

they said that even if there is no money in the account once I win the case, PayPal will lay out the money and pay me and they will (try) to get reimbursed from the seller

Oh, it didn't sound like that originally rather they will put a hold on something which is not there. Gotch ya! I wish you the best.. keep us posted.

ETA.
B"H! The full amount was refunded by PayPal.

OT.
In the past I have been buying travel advice aka (GPUs)on CL after what happened here I don't think I can bring myself to risk it.
Any where else I can purchase travel advice from ? eBay is ridiculously expensive.

I have nothing in common with lazy people who blame others for their lack of success. Great things come from hard work

 Craigslist started charging $5 to post in certain categories.
Smart move although I think $5 is too expensive

U can use Letgo
even if it's a good site where they don't charge how many people actually know that site or heard of that site?
 For example Craigslist almost every guy out there heard of it. When your looking for something first thing that comes to your head is Craigslist.
  For example swappa it's been around for quite some time with amazing prices, amazing place to sell but how many people heard of it vs eBay and Amazon and other sites are much more famous, so that takes the cake when trying to sell phones, yes even though it's more expensive to sell, the same applies with Craigslist you might have a better chance of selling it on Craigslist and pay the $5 fee versus selling on some site where hardly anyone heard of it
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Checked out Craigslist last night and I must say car shopping is a much more pleasant experience.
I had stopped using CL being that it took too long to filter through the spam
