Not particularly scammers, but they've been out of business for over a year yet their site still takes orders(you won't be charged, but you'll be left wondering).

Here's one to add:

cicatrizbooking

I doubt anyone will buy from him since the only feedback he has is my negative one. But either way I won a Star Wars figure off him and he never sent it and never responded to emails. Paypal sided with me, but the account was empty... same old sob story :monkey2 Here's the auction: Targe Clone Trooper (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=101609&item=170000281012)

BTW: This thread might be better somewhere in the commerce section...

i've already asked Dave to transfer this thread over to commerce and have it as a "sticky" but he said it is better here in Permathread since not only it deals with ebay sellers but also other transactions as well.

I have this one to add to the list of bad Ebay sellers:

undagroundtoys

Here's the reason why (http://www.goliath.li/elessar.htm)

But I guess you would avoid him anyways looking at his recent Ebay feedback (http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback&userid=undagroundtoys&iid=)


Another very bad experience I've had was with Ebay seller:

Okay guys, this really stings. I bought a master replicas vader helmet from
TAMEDART located in Canada for $600. He scammed me out of my money and I never got the helmet. I shut him down and he popped up again as TAMEDARTATWORK. I got ebay to shut him down and he popped up again as LUCAGIORGIOPRODUCTIONS. That is his real name. This guy is a thief. I had ebay shut him down again. BEWARE OF THIS GUY! I joked with decadentdave that if he really wanted to rip off people he should scam them out of the falcon and lo and behold LUCAGIORGIOPRODUCTIONS had one for sale. I contacted ebay and his other buyers and stopped his auction. He is a con artist, a liar and a scumbag. He uses master replicas as his bait. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!

What the hell?!?!?! LAMEDART is back?!?!? That scumsucking thief keeps turning up like a bad penny. We've shut him down 3 or 4 times already and somehow he keeps opening new ebay accounts. We've reported all of his known aliases to ebay and IC3 but apparently nobody cares to press charges or investigate him for fraud. I say we hop the next flight to Thunder Bay Ontario and beat the money out of him!

Here's an Ebayer to avoid folks: izombiexxx
(at least I would, now knowing what i know)

This fellow won a dead figure off of me, and I shipped it out promptly and
he got it and left me positive feedback. Was a bit flakey right from the start,
concerned that the figure wasn't the one in my pictures, and I told him several
times that the one he was getting was identical and perfect. Fine and dandy.

I was away this past weekend, and just returned yesterday evening, and was
going through my messages and e-mails trying to catch up.

Here's message 1 to me from izombiexxx:

Date: 9/7/2007 4:04:34 PM Eastern Daylight Time
please leave me feedback - izombiexxx

No problem! Starting off fine. Fair enough request.

Here's message 2 to me from izombiexxx:

Subject: feedback
Date: 9/7/2007 7:11:26 PM Eastern Daylight Time
please leave me feedback - izombiexxx

Hmmmmmmm. Repeat request. Not a problem yet.
But then it goes downhill it goes from there..........fast.

Here's message 3 to me from izombiexxx:

Subject: hello for the 3rd time...
not to be rude but i shouldn't have to ask you over and over to go take 5 seconds and leave me feedback as i've already done for you so please do that - izombiexxx

Here's message 4 to me from izombiexxx:

Subject: hey you !!yea im talkin to you!!
i left you feedback and i would like the favor returned it's part of the processof the transaction SO WHY DO I HAVE TO ASK OVER AND OVER? - izombiexxx

Here's message 5 to me from izombiexxx:

why wont you leave me feedback?i did for you and would appreciate it if you did the same this is very unprofessional FEEDBACK is a part of the process - izombiexxx

Here's message 6 to me from izombiexxx:

Subject: i can email you from now until the end of time
feedback heard of it? its part of the process i left it for you and expect it in return it blows my mind that you wont leave me feedback i paid you promptly i put up with your extensive varification process and left you feedback so go clicky and leave me feedback - izombiexxx

Here's message 7 to me from izombiexxx:

Date: 9/10/2007 5:39:33 PM Eastern Daylight Time
feedback heard of it? its part of the process i left it for you and expect it in return it blows my mind that you wont leave me feedback i paid you promptly i put up with your extensive varification process and left you feedback so go clicky and leave me feedback - izombiexxx

All those messages were over the span of 3 days when I was away.

Folks, this fellow has his feedback set to private due to several negatives.
The verification he speaks of was me asking him to show his feedback so I'd
know who I was dealing with. He did change it temporarily to public, so I
could see his comments. I trusted him and sent the item, still feeling nervous.

I suspect he is a late teenager to early 20's fellow based on his actions, but
that is just guessing and definitely could be mistaken. In all my years on Ebay
I've never had somebody this insistent, rude, and jerky regarding feedback,
which I always leave, and would have left a positive feedback for him, were
it not for his repeated and increasingly rude messages.

Keep in mind this was for a relatively inexpensive 12" figure. Imagine if it had
been an expensive bust or statue?! I can't imagine how difficult this guy would
be to deal with. Definitely one to avoid were I you, and I'll be adding him to
my blocked bidder's list.

Parting question: I've not left him feedback for his purchase at this point.
He has left me positive feedback. Based on the repeat messages listed above,
what should I do/would you do?

1) leave him no feedback
2) leave him positive feedback
3) leave him neutral feedback
4) leave him negative feedback

His feedback rating is now set back to private due to previous negatives left for him.

Be very wary of this one folks.

I would just not leave him feedback. I think a neutral or negative is unwarranted since he did complete the transaction.

galactiboy
09-10-2007, 09:16 PM
I think you could leave him a negative, or neutral because he began to harass you. Not leaving feedback for a few days is not a big deal, but a tendency towards sending ******* emails (especially I can send till the end of time) is one others might want to be aware of... even if he blocks his feedback.

It'd be funny to leave him a negative, and put in it: There, feedback's been left... happy?

As a side note it seems the ones who block always have a reason, I've only sold to one blocked buyer and low-and-behold he had an issue and demanded a partial refund :huh

Guys, I have a question for you. I have just sold some gameboy games and received a ebay alert stating:

We recently canceled bids for the buyer:

ground55control

Our records indicate that this buyer recently attempted to complete a transaction with you. Since the buyer is not currently registered on the eBay site, you can consider the transaction canceled if you haven't already shipped the item.

If you've already shipped the item, we recommend taking the following steps:

1. Contact the company that was used to send payment to verify whether or not funds have cleared.
2. If you find that the funds are fraudulent, contact law enforcement in the buyer's area. Be sure to be as specific as possible, including names, addresses, phone numbers, and any other information that you may have about the buyer. If a detective is assigned to your case, please ask him or her to contact us so that we can assist in the investigation.
3. Contact the shipping carrier to determine whether or not it may be possible to stop shipment on the package.
4. Consider filing a complaint with The National Fraud Information Center (NFIC). The NFIC compiles reports of Internet fraud and relays that information to local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. You can file a report with the NFIC at:

Looks to be a deployed serviceman and he has paid via paypal. From the paypal message:

Note:I am serving with the armed forces in the middle east and my address does not enter properly into ebay. Please ship to: ..............Private information removed by mod....................... Thank you very much.

Tell me what you think. I have only sold a few things w/o issue but not really sure what to do. Thinking I should just wait and see.

Ebay user 75tosh.

This guy is in Italy. He bought my black cat exclusive and paid for snail mail, 4-6 week shipping. I explained to him even before the auction ended the wait time and the possibility that it would take a little longer since canada post's rules are that it's not shipped until it leaves the country.

I had this issue with a shipment to Australie. The guy filed his claim near the 45 day mark with ebay. He was gracious enough to understand that I was doing everything I could, but he needed to cover himself. I filed the lost item claim, and they told me it was not late yet due to when they classify it shipped. I told him and he was understanding. Regardless I had to file again because it was still not there but that got it back on track.

Anyways the first idiot emails me 3 weeks after I dropped it off (2 weeks since it left the country) at the post office saying he hasn't got it yet. I explained to him again and emphasized how long it had been. He said ok and everything was ok.

The next week he files a claim with paypal. They have now refunded him his money and my black cat is still in the mail on it's way to him. Ihave messaged him and expressed my dissappointment with all of this and that I hope he is honest enough to pay me back when he gets it or send it back to me but I'm not holding my breath.

Needless to say either make this guy pay for express shipping or tell him to take a hike if he wants to bid on something you're selling. He's an absolute idiot and a major pain in the a$$.

Excuse my venting.

I know a lot of people have good things to say about AbsoluteComicsandStatues. Not me. I bought a Valkyrie Final Fantasy statue from them a few months back. I told them if possible, I'd pay a bit extra for faster shipping since I was in a brink of moving apartment. In contrast, he replied that the shipping will be a bit late. But I thought it was okay since he looks like a good guy and he responds really fast to my questions.

Anyways, it arrived about 10 days before I moved out. I did not have time to check the content. Around 3 weeks later after everything is settled in the new apartment, I opened the statue and it turned out that the wings are broken and the paint job is just terrible; it was therefore undisplay-able. I contacted him a few times through eBay and after several days, no responds. So I searched around for his personal e-mail address and mailed him through there as well. Still no replies. So I was thinking he is ignoring me. It was too late by then to ask for refund from PayPal. This guy just burned me for $300.

Well, learned my lesson the hard way.

Ebay user 75tosh.

This guy is in Italy. He bought my black cat exclusive and paid for snail mail, 4-6 week shipping. I explained to him even before the auction ended the wait time and the possibility that it would take a little longer since canada post's rules are that it's not shipped until it leaves the country.

I had this issue with a shipment to Australie. The guy filed his claim near the 45 day mark with ebay. He was gracious enough to understand that I was doing everything I could, but he needed to cover himself. I filed the lost item claim, and they told me it was not late yet due to when they classify it shipped. I told him and he was understanding. Regardless I had to file again because it was still not there but that got it back on track.

Anyways the first idiot emails me 3 weeks after I dropped it off (2 weeks since it left the country) at the post office saying he hasn't got it yet. I explained to him again and emphasized how long it had been. He said ok and everything was ok.

Sorry to hear about this. I think when talking about high end items and international shipping there should be insured airmail packages with tracking number or Express Mail options only. Thus you can see where the package is all the time and it is also insured...

Actually, I can personally vouch for '75tosh'. He is an absolutely trustworthy buyer. I've sold him TENS OF THOUSANDS of dollars worth of Sideshow merchandise, including extremely rare items such as Gray Hulk vs Spiderman and Classic/Retro Spidey. I've never had a single issue with him. There is no reason for any seller to place him on their blocked bidder list. You do have to remember, he is Italian and his English isn't the best. From what I understand (If I can translate what he is saying), it took the seller 20 days to ship the item from the auction date. I'd like to see the tracking info and a link to the auction, before I believe he's totally at fault.

Even if he is, I'm absolutely sure he will pay for the item, in full, if and when he receives it.

The tracking on international stuff here in Canada is spotty at best. Once it leaves Canada, the tracking seems to go into limbo until it arrives in the destination country.

Here's the tracking number.
CC090711341CA
canadapost.ca is the website
ebay listing http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MESOX:IT&item=170324119813
I provided this to him but I'm not sure he knows how to use it.

The only issue I have with their service is this rule that they don't consider international shipments mailed until it leaves the country. This usually takes between 1 and 2 1/2 weeks, so their 4-6 week quote on time is actually 6-9 weeks roughly. Like I said this happend with my Australian buyer. I was in a huge panick with him though because his shipment was my celtic and asian elder predators which he paid almost 1000 dollars for.

Thanks for talking to him though Fly. It's much appreciated.

oktubreuno, also goes by frequentbuyer21 DO NOT SELL anything to this piece of work. I sold him 2 statues and sent them insured. Well, he gets them and says they are chipped, so I tell him to file insurance complaint with USPS. So, he blames me, saying they were like that when I shipped them and I in my stupidity didn't see them. Well, I had them displayed for 2 years and I KNOW they were not chippped in any way. Also, how do I knwo that he didn't chip them himself? So...he wont file and expects me to knock off for that, when I argue with him he now says that they also have paint issues, NO crap dumba**....they are hand painted statues for Sideshow, expect some variences in the paint like any normal person would. I am so frustrated, STAY AWAY form this loser. Also, he may be hard to avoid since he admits to me that he has over 20 ebay accounts he uses. I would post his real name but do not want to break any rules here, just want my Freak friends to be warned of this jerk.

Hey Toyglobe does suck. They took my money and never sent me what I ordered! I tried contacting them over a half dozen times and they still never sent it. I have yet to get my money back, and this was about two years ago.

As for crappy sellers on eBay, oh man, there was this one guy......Ack, can't remember his name. Sold me the Jessica Rabbit big fig but never sent it. I ended up getting my money back through PayPal...I was confused because he had great feedback, but he wouldn't respond to any of my messages and over a month had gone by without receiving the item. I'll see if I can find him again... Nah, I lost track of him. This was a long time ago, before I started posting here.

I have to throw a rant out here about ebay member: reptilespawn

Which I think is the ebay store for Hollywood Cinema Collectibles.

Anyway, they had a buy it now on one of the SSC Babysitter (black haired version). The buy it now price is $125 with a best offer. So I decided to toss the offer of $50 out there assuming they would either, decline, counter offer or accept. Either one of these was of course fine with me. Yes, $50 might be a low ball offer but I would assume like most I deal with they would count-offer.

So I get a decline offer, ok that is fine they don't want to counter off that is there business. I ignore it UNTIL I get a message from them saying:

"You have been blocked and reported. Good luck with your account."

I am shocked so I respond back asking why. I receive this response:

"You have continued to throw insanely low offers on my auctions after being asked to give reasonable or realistic offers. You have clearly ignored my requests. I feel that you are just playing games with my eBay store and putting a stop to it is what I have done."

Whoa, so I am quite shocked on this. This is what I sent:

"First off, you never once asked ME personally to give a reasonable offer. This is the first communication I have received from you. Secondly, I only see one time I put an offer out to you on an item. If you don't like the offer then don't put a best offer or have an auto decline.

Blocking or "reporting" me really shows your maturity. I gave you an offer on an item for what I thought it was worth, not your ebay gouging prices. You don't see me throwing a hissy fit like a 2 year old because you declined my offer."

I looked at my offers and I only sent ONE to him and even if I DID send multiple offers to him in the past I never ONCE got communication from him indicating he thought me low balling him was unfair to him and I should send in reasonable offers.

So after that message I get this response:

"Go away. "

So seriously, this is how this guy deals?

Anyway just had to rant and I am not hiding anything. You can disagree with me that I was being unfair but whatever. Definitely won't be buying from this guy ever.

I've put pieces on Ebay and received offers that were 1/4 or less than my BIN price. I decline the offer and leave it at that. It doesn't bother me if they offer a mere dollar. I actually get pleasure out of clicking the "Decline Offer" button. :lol

Thanks for the heads up. I've never heard of them or dealt with them, but I don't really care to now.

Yeah ive had the same response from this guy when i made some offers to him for stuff to the point where he came back and starts insulting me over my 'lack of knowledge ' about figures and my offers were' insulting to him' etc. By treating people like this he's only hurting himself. The idea behind making bids for items is that you put in your own bid and the seller accepts or declines. Apparently he doesn't understand this process and felt the need to add his own commentary about how great he is and then started to insult me over my offers.

I mean if he doesn't like bids being placed on his items why place them up for bidding. Naturally one can assume you will get low offers.

codheadsuz

I made an offer through ebay for a Chopper and Scar Hot Toys Predator lot that codheadsuz was selling on ebay, the seller accepted and i made payment through paypal for £415 including shipping in the UK. He replied to me once payment was recieved and said it was shipped on the 7th of September, he said it should be with me by the 10th which was a Friday.

Nothing arrived and i decided to wait a couple more days after the weekend so contacted him on the 14th and said that i hadnt recieved anything and did he have tracking information on the package...i waited and didnt get a response, was slightly irked by this and decided i would wait a day for a reply and try to email again did that and still nothing.

Ended up filing a paypal claim and finally got my money back after Paypal rulled in my favour since he didnt respond to the claim or any emails.

This guy is still buying/selling on ebay but i think he has a few different accounts on ebay as there is 4-5 other usernames in the same area with similar usernames.

I've had that happen to me before. (Luckily, it was before I bought the item.) I've emailed sellers before with the SAME question twice about shippers, just reworded. And received two different answers. Some people really struggle with the concept of a shipper vs. art box. I don't why. They just do.

My closing of that thread has nothing to do with this existing one, using the search feature or 'ruffling feathers'. If that were the case your thread would have been closed on the first day.

You started the newer thread to alert people to sellers you think are shady/ potential scammers etc and you did that. The last few pages were becoming nothing more than a personal mission to remove ALL scammers from existance (especially these alleged ones) which is an impossibility, not only that, it is not our responsibility to do that. The fact that you refer to that thread saying 'you were closed out' (although you have now edited your post) shows how personal you have made it.
Unfortunately, there will always be there and it is not your (or the Forum's) responsibility to see to it that they are taken down because you think they made be shady.

I appreciate you have made people aware that there may be a problem with the sellers you have mentioned and you have reported them to eBay aswell as tell people here. So you have done what you can.
It is not (nor should it be imo) your personal goal to see that they are removed.
Having said that, if that is what you choose to do then that is your choice, it's up to you so go ahead if you want to but this Forum is not here to spearhead your campaign.

This thread is to alert people to potential problem Buyers or Sellers and you have now done that in the posts you have made here. I already posted a link to your thread aswell as you doing it now so people can still check it and see, if they want more information.

If you need to add people to the list that you think are scammers/bad eBayers then you can update the post you have already made in this thread. Please do not continue with the personal mission in this thread.
Thank you.

Left my friend the following neutral feedback for a brand new, sealed Truetype body (I know it was brand new and sealed because I packed it for him) -

"Item had some loose joints. Didnt want to go thru hassle of returns so i kept it"

Awesome! Neutral feedback because you're not interested in resolving a factory issue! :rock

This seller just dissappeared after paying him for a Premium Format Dastan statue!!! I find it odd because I bought 2 statues from him before and received great service. He also has lots of good feedback (2000+). Dunno if the oke died or somethin. Ebay also threw the case out because it was past the required notification period. Lost $260. Sweet. :thud: :slap

superstreak99 is a BAD eBay seller. Sent me a broken Wolverine PF (listing said there was no damage from what "he could tell"), with none of the pieces packaged properly. :gah: I asked for a refund and he said sure. My first thought was great! finally a nice person. After I told him I sent it back no communication for a week. :slap Filed a case on eBay. After about a month and a half eBay ruled in my favor and gave me a full refund. :hi5:

I'm having problems Bigmike 2738. I preordered and paid for Falconer Predator from him on 8/31/2010. Needless to say I didn't get the preorder from him as he wrote his supplier didn't get those in...and received an email from him saying such. He then emailed me I would have my refund by the end of May 2011. When that didn't happen was told I would have it by June 10th...that didn't happen either. This seller keeps ignoring emails requesting an update as to when I might get my money back when he told me he would keep me posted on it. I may eventually get my refund....but I have serious doubts. Better to just avoid this guy altogether. Obviously, I have no recourse in forcing him to refund my money as the Paypal window expired long ago. I have also contacted IC3 (Internet Crime Complaint Center) but haven't heard anything from them concerning this issue.

I recently purchased a set of comic books from a user named drnoles7842. I changed my address the day I paid for the items, but I guess i should have done it earlier because it did not change by the time the seller got the information. Well naturally I am thinking I can just have the it redirected, but it hasn't even came to Canada yet and its been a month. I explained to the user my predicament and he said he had insurance for this sort of thing and when he said that he called the post office to track it they said it was being shipped back and it couldn't be tracked, but when I tracked it it was still hasn't left for Canada. He has refused to give me my money back and he thinks that I will buy another. He wants me to give him more money for something I already bought and didn't receive when he has insurance to cover it don't buy from him ever.

Honestly, in 99% of the cases, packages tracked from US to Canada won't show past the border until delivered and in some cases never show as delivered. It's feasible that the package might still be en route to your original address and have yet to either be forwarded to your current one (if Canada does that) or returned to him. Honestly, expecting a refund for what is essentially your error isn't right. Especially when the seller doesn't have the items back and insurance won't cover it until there's some resolution as far as delivery. I'd give it more time and wait to see what happens.

Yes, but how is that his fault? You're essentially blaming him because he emailed a package to the address you used to pay with. Now you're mad because the package is taking a while because of a mistake you made. I'm more than certain you knew you were moving well before changing the address in the system, so this delay is owned by you. Demanding a refund because of the long delay isn't morally right. As a matter of fact, I don't even think eBaY would side with you over this. But yet, here you are, using your first post on this forum to blast a seller who's done everything he was supposed to do to fulfill his obligation as far as the auction's concerned, because he's not letting you rip him off. :cuckoo:

This is why I don't sell internationally. :lol

Too many risks when shipping internationally. Paypal really won't cover you very well as a seller, because you can't guarantee a signature on delivery. Plus, it is extra work for the seller, having to fill out custom forms, physically go to the P.O., etc. I don't do it anymore.

I have to throw a rant out here about ebay member: reptilespawn

Which I think is the ebay store for Hollywood Cinema Collectibles.

Anyway, they had a buy it now on one of the SSC Babysitter (black haired version). The buy it now price is $125 with a best offer. So I decided to toss the offer of $50 out there assuming they would either, decline, counter offer or accept. Either one of these was of course fine with me. Yes, $50 might be a low ball offer but I would assume like most I deal with they would count-offer.

So I get a decline offer, ok that is fine they don't want to counter off that is there business. I ignore it UNTIL I get a message from them saying:

"You have been blocked and reported. Good luck with your account."

I am shocked so I respond back asking why. I receive this response:

"You have continued to throw insanely low offers on my auctions after being asked to give reasonable or realistic offers. You have clearly ignored my requests. I feel that you are just playing games with my eBay store and putting a stop to it is what I have done."

Whoa, so I am quite shocked on this. This is what I sent:

"First off, you never once asked ME personally to give a reasonable offer. This is the first communication I have received from you. Secondly, I only see one time I put an offer out to you on an item. If you don't like the offer then don't put a best offer or have an auto decline.

Blocking or "reporting" me really shows your maturity. I gave you an offer on an item for what I thought it was worth, not your ebay gouging prices. You don't see me throwing a hissy fit like a 2 year old because you declined my offer."

I looked at my offers and I only sent ONE to him and even if I DID send multiple offers to him in the past I never ONCE got communication from him indicating he thought me low balling him was unfair to him and I should send in reasonable offers.

So after that message I get this response:

"Go away. "

So seriously, this is how this guy deals?

Anyway just had to rant and I am not hiding anything. You can disagree with me that I was being unfair but whatever. Definitely won't be buying from this guy ever.


Im glad i found This thread !!! Ok so this is a local store near my area.i went in looking for hot toys.

Particle has a positive feedback score of less than 10. The seller said he would not sell to anyone with a feedback score that low. Particle didn't notice it in the auction listing, and won the auction. He then left the seller negative feedback after the seller refused to ship the item to him. . .

I had one a couple of weeks ago.
Wanted a figure for half the price of the buy it now.
I refused and he paid in full.
That got my back up straight away.
Anyway sent it.
And got messages back saying I overwrapped it and as a result it had very minor damage.
Get this.
He wanted me to refund 2.50 for glue to fix the damage or he would have no option but to leave neg feedback.
On yer bike I said
He already got the figure at a very fair price and was moaning about ostage from the start and left me a note on paypal.
Postage was slightly more than I qouted aswell.

Told him not to threaten as against ebay policy and he backed down apologised and left positive.

Won’t name him as of yet because he seemed to be having an off day and did seem geuinely confused in general:)

Ebay seller, schlinke, advertised a "scratch free" disk in "Like New" condition, that clearly had scratches was not Like New when I received it. Before purchasing, they reassured me that it was scratch free. I filed a claim on Ebay and got back a full refund. Unfortunately, I had to pay out of my own pocket for return shipping. Here's the original listing for the game:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/290970627753?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

It's interesting, that he has relisted it again, as "Like New" :slap. That alone, earned him a neutral feedback from me.

secretcompass is a fairly large ebay retailer with over 8000 feedback. i was very surprised when they purchased my sideshow iron man stealth comiquette at $529.99 plus shipping on ebay. clearly an item valued at over $200 is a strange buy for a retailer. no room to move for resale. the item was delivered and close to 6 weeks passed. then they opened an ebay case stating the item's light up functionality didn't work and the knuckles were chipped. this piece was previously displayed in my personal collection. the buyer claims he had it stored in his warehouse for 'a few weeks' before he could check it. it was actually 2 days short of 6 weeks.

when i decided to sell it i checked functionality, cleaned it, and repackaged. all these were stated in my description. the light up worked perfect and there was no way in hell the knuckles had any chips. the buyer messaged me asking to provide a partial refund for these problems. i refused. since everything worked when i sent it, any damage that occurred was during shipping to which the item was fully insured. i had the feeling he was shaking me down for a discount. after all, what did he have to lose? he didn't provide pictures and has not responded back to me in a week. for this i would warn people to stay away from this shake down buyer. the case most likely will be escalated when he gets around to it. he has thirty days from when he opened it.

A nice thread to fill it a little bit more :) mine story, I believe, is a bit "better" than some of you. So, So, I have bought an ozone generator from here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/600mg-DIGITAL-OZONE-Generator-Oil-Vegetable-Meat-Fresh-/220809570335?pt=UK_Home_Garden_Hearing_Cooling_Air&hash=item336946a81f

Ebay user name is nestcf2009, companys name is Health First Tyne & Wear CIC, Health First UK Ltd or Health First Global. Call it how you want it, the seller is the same.

Story goes like this - ozone generator arrived a few days ago. Today I was about to use it for the first time. But since the package was extremely damaged (ripped hole at the edge of box) and look liked the box was used a lot in a past, I decided to open the ozone generator.

Inside ozone generator i saw that the tube (which pumps out the ozone) was completely brown (we do have the same ozone generator at home and you can get that kind of colour ONLY after using it up to 2 YEARS).

As well micro chips were dirty and sticky, the box was used before. Micro chips were dated 2009 and 2011!!!!

It all shows that this ozone generator was USED!!! NOT new as described before reselling it from some other origin company.

So, BE CAREFUL about NESTCF2009 seller on ebay. Because it might sell you USED products instead of NEW.

Why speculate and not look at Paypal's website (https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/security/buyer-protection-resolution):


2.Open a dispute in the Resolution Center within 45 calendar days of your purchase.


If you decide to open a dispute, be aware that you must open it within 45 days of the date you made your payment, and that you and the seller will have 20 days to work things out.

After contacting him 30 days after my purchase he told me D'ont worry I will resend another one and you should receive it in 20-25 working days and please do not post a negative feeback because I am a new seller.He no doubdt knew that it was impossible to open a dispute after 45 days. I sent him several emails and he told me I will refund you after the Chinese Holidays and needless to say that I'm still expecting the refund. Stay away from this dishonest seller.

Avoid ebay user : " argmaytee " at all costs!!!!! Horrible seller, theif, and being he sells "so many items" and refunds "no one" even when he can not provide tracking or the item i "paid" for he claimed he would refund once feedback was left he then "blocked" me .. I called ebay to report the fraud and they simply said hes a platinum seller so its out of thier hands (basically he makes them too much money for them to care about what he does) do not buy from this theiving liar and ill be happy to provide proof of this matter to anyone at anytime by emailing me at rose.camasso at gmail dot com

Vendor "gqhorror" is Jordan Alexander. I bought a 3D DVD set from him in December 2013. The movie, "300: Rise of an Empire" had not been released yet. When this is the case, your complaint window supposedly does not start until the item is shipped.
The DVD was not released until June 2014. He didn't ship. But this was well beyond the time frame to complain to eBay or PayPal. When I provide the transaction number and item number to eBay, it is too old to be recognized. And of course, there is no way for a humble buyer to actually communicate with a live person at eBay or PayPal successfully.
Gqhorror ignores my emails, and is still an active seller.
I still have all the correspondence from eBay and PayPal to back this up.

Avoid seller popolove1124 on eBay! Won a 1/6 Joker bag on a BIN auction for $15.00 and paid immediately. He sends me a message saying he listed it for the wrong price and wants $70.00 more or he can refund my money. I told him I wanted him to honor the price he set for the auction and ship me the bag. He refused to ship the item then refunded my money. I filed a complaint with eBay but have to wait 7 days to leave negative feedback.

Here is a doozy from eBay:

z-3-p-uan

Whined about $0.80 overpayment on shipping versus the actual postage cost in his feedback. Just to be clear I never in any way implied or promised exact shipping charges. Not only did eBay make me pay a fee on the shipping (only $0.40 since international), but I went out of my way spending at least thirty minutes to send this jerk his package by Registered Mail because Priority Mail can no longer be tracked to Thailand.

Hmm, maybe another with a similar name. I know there was another with fake auctions around the same time of showcasecomicsandstatues had all their fake auctions up. Even if I did mistake the name, if they are recasting I wouldn't buy from them personally. This was another seller that had their account shut down by eBay. So, I guess if babygq still has a account up, it wasn't him...

Babygq takes pre orders but NEVER ship out the item... I had to file a case with eBay after they started avoiding my phonecalls:

BABYGQ14 NEEDS TO BE BLOCKED:

Here is my story:

I purchased the Ironman Heartbreaker in April as a preorder through eBay and the seller was on top of all my messages and seemed friendly up until november when I got antsy and demanded my figure be shipped... the seller informed me it would be shipped the following day... well it never was... and from that moment on I did not hear from them through eBay...

So I called eBay and they said there was nothing they could do because it was purchased in April 2014 and it was now January 2015... but they DID give me their home number... I called dozens of times... only once again DID NOT hear from the seller... The seller was so rude that this person literally was ignoring my phone calls/texts (don't have an iMessage READ CONFIRMED message if you are not going to reply back lol)

Anyways, I called Ebay again and asked to speak to an "appealment specialist"

I spent an hour on the phone with her explaining the situation, her name was Ashley and she literally told me she, "had never heard of this happening before." She explained that eBay DOES NOT protect their SELLERS when it comes to a pre order item, BUT IT DOES PROTECT THE BUYER aka YOU!

The only problem she could see with me not getting a refund was that the actual Heartbreaker was released in November and I waited till January to contact her (even though I had been on the phone with Ebay the entire month of January)... A week later I have the money ($245.00) deposited into my paypal account... I have still yet to hear from this scam artist

And stay away from babygq14

You can't leave negative feedback when the listing passes 90 days, I believe it is. Since these are pre-orders that basically can exceed the time limits -think sideshow and hot toys delays- you are left with no recourse. I just went through all this with TNS FIGURES, and now I may be the next victim of babygq14 as I have 2 pre-orders with them from back in May and August. It's too bad because I've dealt with both these sellers in the past with great success. Seems all of a sudden these sellers are just taking the money and disappearing. :dunno

*I was ripped off over a $15.00 item. Angela Girard LIED to me about sending a refund in two days, which I never got but why not be polite and send it now? especially when it was already 3.5 weeks overdue. Too many ebayers either don't want to communicate or don't know how to. But when Customer Service is in the balance girard1222 still declined contact.
*Ebay's return policy is that the buyer gets the refund within 6 days that the seller receives it back. That was something I thought I could depend on two months ago. It said "Hassle free returns" on the item's page. Hardly. If she still refuses to wake up and respond, to paypal again (second time I've called them), when the case "times out" in 10 days I'll get my refund, 'tho its another 2 weeks tacked on to the two months I've waited in vain.

I'M GLAD I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT DEALT WITH BABYGQ14

My Story:

When I was new to Hot Toys, I pre-ordered the Iron Man MK42 in July '14. A month before release. Communication with this seller was no problem. After mid- August I checked to see if item was in stock. My response was "should be here next week." Next week passes of course. So the seller's next response is "there was a shoulder defect. Item has been delayed to October" Fortunately for them, that story was true. So I wait another full month in ignorance because I didn't want to bug the seller.

After seeing other posters showing their MK42's for weeks, I randomly decided to google Babygq14. I was not too surprised to see complaints on forums about this individual, but I was floored to actually see complaints on eBay's own forums. The customers (victims) who were duped didn't do anything about it. They took their $200 to $350 they spent as a loss. I'm thinking "heeeeeeeelllllllllllll naaaaaaaawww"

So I send a message to Babygq14, confronting (her) about multiple customers not getting their pre-orders. After no response for a couple of weeks, her typical answer was "should be here next week" and then a "do you not want the figure?"

After that I took it to the next level. I responded that I have links of other users posts stating they were screwed over, and I have presented them to US Cyber-Crimes Division :wink1: Since it was past the 45 day eBay policy, I demanded my money back in full from her and I would drop the case. Surprisingly, I get an immediate response of " we have this in stock ready to ship (bs). You don't want figure?" followed by "you don't have to threaten me. Sending refund" I got my refund 10 minutes later and babygq14 mystically disappeared from eBay as I tried to see if she was still running her scheme.

I really hope this seller is no longer on ebay.

I've had really bad experiences with vovotrade_hot. Bought 2 speakers from them and kept emailing about it not coming. Eventually they stopped replying, the speakers never came and I never got the money back and at that point eBay couldn't help much because it was after the 30 days. First bad experience on ebay. It put me off for a while. Then more recently I bought a dress from liliantan624. Took like 3 months to get here and it looks so cheaply made.amd I had to pay for shopping and customs. I would sell it rather than return to get the money back but doubt anyone would buy it.

I threatened her as well after I got all her REAL information/other phone numbers/home address... never heard anything back from her, just saw "read" text receipts on my iPhone.

I am sure she still is just using a different name, after all it is good money... I have no doubt in my mind that she created another eBay account and is doing the same thing over again (I mean LOOK at all the preorders on eBay (even though eBay policy states they are not allowed to sell preorders, yet there is NOTHING from preventing sellers to do so). eBay is COMPLETE crap (even though I got my money back I stand by this statement as they have screwed me over in the past two months (for little amounts but still)).

I read something once... never spend money/sell anything on eBay that you are not afraid to loose/throw away :mad:

As horrible as this sounds, you can not take your rating to seriously on eBay :/
I did for years until I got my first negative comment...

At the end of the day there are honest buyers and not honest buyers (same with sellers)... negative feedback is a common thing and one negative comment won't scare buyers away (especially depending on the situation)... now if I see a seller that has multiple "never ships item" comments, of course I am going to ignore that item.

When you really look at it, Ebay is a very crappy place to sell things... I have sold dozens of figures and one day a buyer opened a case stating the item was damaged. I gladly told the buyer they could return it... well they ignored my message and I escalated the case to eBay... Turns out eBay didn't care (rarely will they side with sellers), but since it was a small value amount I got to keep the money too... This didn't sit well with me... Not once did I (or eBay) see a photo of my "damaged" item nor do I have the item back. So logically if the value is under $50 you can open a case and say it's damaged without any proof and eBay will cover you.

What I have learned... don't take it to personal :wink1:

I had a similar incident. Buyer claimed damaged but made up all sorts of reasons why he couldn't send photos. I finally just asked him to return it but he was trying to ask for all the money back before shipping and then also trying to get half off what was $100 worth of figures to keep them. Took buyer nearly 2 months to send the items he supposedly didn't want back. Very frustrating. Trust breaks down quickly as soon as there is any sort of problem.

Yeah, it's great that they switched that system. I have 100% after 1,000 or so transactions over a decade or so, but I remember I got a negative or neutral at one point over the case of a CD that arrived cracked. Always seems so crazy how feedback-wise a $2 CD counts as much as a $2,000 item. People have been kind to me though, I've literally forgotten to ship items for a few weeks before when I was younger and more irresponsible, but was never penalized that I recall. Much better about that now.

If the item says "delivered" via USPS tracking ebay automatically sides with the seller (you)... This is how it has worked from day one.

IF the item was a low prices item, ebay might just give the seller their money back and let you keep your payment as well. I am assuming this is what happened... Now if the item wasn't delivered by the delivery date ebay sides with the buyer. If the item wasn't shipped the method listed in the listing, ebay once again automatically sides with the buyer. If you labeled it "first class package" and it says delivered before expected silvery date, file a claim/call customer service.

A member stating "they never got an item" doesn't make them rude... This has actually happened to me before... Turns out the postman put it "next to" my mailbox (I live in the country, next to my mailbox is a mile down the road/away from my house)... Post office made the mistake... NOT ME and not the seller... So it DOES happen.

I've reported the negative to Dave and hopefully he'll take care of it soon.

Does anybody know of this ebayer that goes by the user name romromerami and romerodis?


He used the romromerami to bid on my auction last week, and didn't pay and doesn't even respond to my messages. So this week, he bid again on my re listed auction with another account romerodis. I checked the shipping address and name and its a match.

Hello all:
First, but this incident has turned me off to buying accessories for a while and in a way has ruined part of the hobby for me (i haven't been on in a while), you really can't trust anyone anymore and that is so upsetting... this is a hobby we are supposed to enjoy, yet I am being harassed and belittled by an eBay member whom I am sure belongs to these boards as well :(

Second, the real reason I am here today, I wanted to share with you this incident:

I purchased a pair of boots from an eBay member named OLDJOEINFIRMARY-OJ (who also has an actual webstore)... Today I opened my gmail account and received harassing emails and wanted to report him here and see what you all think.

A month ago (march 17th) I ordered a pair of boots for just over $5 via eBay. A week after the boots were scheduled to arrive I still did not have them (the seller did ship them out on time/next business day). I emailed OJ when I noticed that the boots stated "in transit delay." Now I completely understand "in transit delays," yet I NEVER received the boots... so I simply asked for a refund.

When I opened the case asking for a refund the buyer called stated rudely: "So you must have confused with Domino s Pizza? We never committed to a specific delivery date or it s free. The estimated delivery from eBay is simply an estimate not a contract." (yet it is a contract... why else would they WAIT for the item not to arrive before you can open a case)?!

Yet when I told him thats what eBay policies are there for this is the reply: "Sniveling, unreasonable, infantile buyers like you make eBay a lot less desirable place for sellers. So stomp your feet, throw your tantrum, and wait for the eBay process to run it s course. The threat of your impending negative feedback amounts to absolutely zero! In short, you are an immature and unreasonable person. " (word for word).

On april 3rd the seller stated that the item was in fact lost by USPS and he agreed to ship out another item.
Once again this item NEVER arrived. What are the odds of USPS loosing TWO packages from the same person to the same?

On april 11th the seller messaged me through eBay case and stated:

"I just checked the tracking on our second package and see that again your package has failed to be delivered on time. I honestly have never seen anything like this happen before. There clearly is something going on with your particular destination. Either the address you have provided to eBay is incorrect, or your postal delivery people are intercepting your deliveries, or your delivery person is purposely not scanning the parcels so they appear to be lost. Whatever the case, we will not be making a 3rd attempt to deliver these boots. Sorry, we really did give it our best effort...."

Once again OJ is BACK to blaming me... WHY?! I have purchased off eBay and high ticket items from this site MANY times and not once has this ever happened... He blames my postmaster and me for having incorrect information... When the fact is BOTH items never even made it to my post office... they never even left the sorting facility.

Did I receive me packages? NO. Did the buyer issue me a refund? NO. I had to call eBay and ask for a refund WEEKS after I was able to (I gave him plenty of time).

I had NO intentions of leaving negative feedback because I wanted to wait for the boots to arrive. THEY NEVER did... so the other day I DID leave this comment: "Item had to be shipped TWICE, neither arrived. Had to get money back via case" which was entirely true.

The buyer then replied with this: "The USPS took full responsibility for this & we granted you the refund MORON" which is not true at all considering the photo files uploaded CLEARLY show "eBay Customer Support has refunded you through PayPal." OJ did not, as he says he did.

And calling a customer a moron in an HONEST negative feedback comment after I waited A MONTH for my item... SMOOTH dude :cuckoo:

Now... today I open my email to received a harassing email (see photos): he still thinks I WAS IN THE WRONG?!

Calling someone a moron and calling a post office (when in fact the post office he called wasn't even my ACTUAL post office) is so childish. The woman who operates the post office is in fact a friend of mine and I deal with here on a DAILY basis, she knows me very well! This buyer REALLY upset me and ultimately hurt my feelings (silly i know) and ruined something that was going to be amazing for me. I was planning on using this pair of boots on a Terminator custom... I have waited over a month to finish this custom because I wanted these boots and now have to start searching for boots all over again.

After I reported him to eBay for harassment eBay informed me he had ANOTHER report against him for the same issue (so obviously this has happened before).

Literally while I was on the phone with eBay I revcieve ANOTHER email:

"Hooked on Phonics can help when you are having difficulty with your words. You should really try it. At least run the spell check.

Now, go look in the mirror and see who brought all this grief into your life. All you had to do was act like an adult rather than an impatient little child. Blaming the seller who shipped your package quickly and addressed correctly when it goes lost or delayed is UNREASONABLE! Blaming the seller when they send you a second package to you that also goes lost or is delayed is again UNREASONABLE!"

WHO does this guy think he is? This is a hobby we are ALL supposed to ENJOY! Not belittle people with?! I don't believe waiting a month for a pair of boots (after they were shipped twice and never left the sorting facility) is UNREASONABLE? What really gets me is he is harassing me for a FIVE DOLLAR item? and ironically is now saying "the boots would have been delivered today but I requested them to come back to AZ and they are not halfway back" REALLY?! REALLY DUDE?! I thought they were lost (as stated in your eBay messages)?!

I am going through with the promise I sent back in my email (and while I am not proud of calling him an "a**h***") and reporting him to this site as well as the BBB for his online store. When someone tells you to STOP multiple times, that means STOP, that does not mean reply back and harass again.

Attached are photos of both our ebay case and the google mail I received/replied to today.
I am sure he is a member here at sideshow and I do NOT want him harassing me through here. I am worried he will report ME/my eBay ID to the boards for being "unreasonable" when our entire conversation is listed in attachments below.

:( :( :(

If you took the time to read this, I thank you. I just wish people could be honest and not think everyone is out the get them.

I would simply just block him from being able to bid on your items via preferences... If you cancel the transaction (even if they don't agree to it) you can call ebay and have it done for you after a certain amount of time and still get your listing fee/ebay fees back :)

I am so tired of OldJoeinfirimary-oj harassing me...

AFTER I asked him to STOP multiple times I heard from him YET again once today...

I literally replied with the message:

"Do you not understand when to stop?
Do you not understand the word harassment?

Do you not understand what you are doing is illegal?

Do you not understand I NEVER received my packages!?!?!?"

HE STILL REPLIES BACK!!! I don't get it... Entirely unprofessional. When a customer doesn't receive their item that customer has EVERY right to open a case. Yes he tried sending another package, but I never received it.

If you can call and "find a package" and have it "shipped back to you" WHY can't you find the package when the case it open?! I DO NOT GET THIS and I am tired of this person harassing me... and what kills me is he thinks HE IS RIGHT. I would like him added to the list for all the reasons listed above.

Anyone know anything about a seller called gorilla-collections? I won a very cheap HT hulkbuster auction, seems to good to be true, and he has 3 other hulkbuster sales, all under $500.

Avengers Age of Ultron Movie Masterpiece 1 6 Scale Figure 21" Ironman Hulkbuster | eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Avengers-Age-of-Ultron-Movie-Masterpiece-1-6-Scale-Figure-21-IronMan-Hulkbuster-/271916574600?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f4f7da788)

So I called ebay, and they had no interest in uncovering this scam. Basically you can only get insurance from ebay for 30 days and 180 days from paypal. So if you buy any preorder beyond that you aren't covered. It looks like this seller has built a small but decent reputation selling low cost items and now is selling preorders that he never plans to fill. I could be wrong, but I doubt it. I don't think anyone has access to HT hulkbusters at anywhere near the prices he's sold them for. Hopefully this will help someone avoid making a costly mistake.

I guess if you are going to risk a eBay pre-order the best approach would be to try and time the 180 day limit in with the preposed ETA and say a month to spare. At least that way you can call it a day and open a dispute and *hopefully* get your money back.

After the 180 days I fear a lot of Pre-orders won't be fulfilled. Maybe contacting your credit card might help, but it's a place I'd rather not go.

It's definitely risky. I have a pre-order open with loontentoys on eBay for the AoU BW.
- I'm anxious to say the least but the price (£147) was far better then anything in the UK

I'm speechless, I've never seen anything quite that bad. I've had some iffy purchases in the past sure, but nothing like that. Just reading the sellers comments made me uncomfortable. That's horrendous especially the fact that it has resolved (refund received etc) and yet he is still harassing you.

Is there no way you can block his e-mails?

Maybe if you just ignore them, and don't respond he'll just get the hint - responding seems to be fueling the rage so to speak.
- Awful though, and over what $5 :cuckoo:

Here's a new buyer to avoid: mikeybgood327_8 (http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=mikeybgood327_8&ftab=AllFeedback&myworld=true&rt=nc)

He has bid and won the same item from me twice and not paid. There was a space of a month or so in between the first listing and 2nd so I didn't recognize the user name. But sure enough, he won a $250 figure (the same one I relisted) and then never paid or responded to any requests.

Of course eBay doesn't allow sellers to leave negative feedback so he'll just continue to buy stuff, not pay and go on his merry way.

Can't you block bidders with none payment strikes?

You can, but in my experience, it has no effect. Of course, I never see the bids that were prevented by the policy, but it also hasn't stopped non-paying bidders from winning my items. I think between eBay not preventing people from registering unlimited accounts and unpaid item strikes dropping off someone's account after a set period of time, their unpaid item strike policy is toothless. I just always list with fixed-price listings, and then I am able to check the box requiring immediate payment.

I'm not sure how "tin-foily" it is, but you have to keep in mind that eBay takes their cut as soon as the item sells, not when money changes hands, so it's not in eBay's best interests to prevent people from buying your items. They probably count on people forgetting or not realizing they can file an unpaid item case to get a refund on the final value fee.

I would like to add one to the list. J.C Comics out of New jersey. Ebay name Webdeal ...looks like it has since been changed. ( The original price was $275 + $50 SH which was going rate at the time)

I normally try to do transactions with fellow collectors here and on Statue Marvels. Occasionally I will buy from eBay but it has to be something extra ordinary be it price or a piece I am adding to my growing collection. This is from back in November 2013 but I was and still am so appalled by them I thought others should know.
I had the nightmare of dealing with J.C Comics based out of New Jersey. I normally browse the forums and eBay before I start my shift as an L.E.O. I started watching an auction with a buy it now of 275.00 for a Cyclops PF. At lunch I figured why not and bought it, paid immediately and thought all was well. Later that night I emailed the seller (J.C Comics aka Webdeal) for the tracking info. No more than 15 minutes later I was refunded the purchase price. I then got an email from them stating there was an error in the listing, it was mispriced. After here things went down hill fast.
I emailed them stating thats fine, maybe we could work something out, J.C Comics said yeah I can pay an additional $100 for the Cyclops PF and $50 shipping and handling . And after I paid he might be able to take off $20 . I said no thanks and thought this was the end of it. I then got a nasty email from the same guy about how I am an ******* for even thinking they would sell it at that price, I did not respond and instead of not leaving any feedback decided to leave negative feedback due to the attitude conveyed in the emails to me.
This is where it gets out of hand ..... J.C Comics who's mission statement states (We are a family business that treats our customers like family. Many have been with us from the start but we love meeting new customers every day. Whether you are a customer for 20 years or 1 day we want to treat everyone special.) I then received an email stating how dare I leave negative feedback I am nothing more than an ******* ..... I tried to take advantage of them amongst other threats. The next day another ... apologizing stating they couldn't eat the loss. However if I switched from negative to positive feedback he would send my paypal account $25. I stated that was against ebay policies to even offer something like that and to stop emailing me the negative feedback would stay. I then received two within a few hours that not only threatened me to change it (Said he would come to my residence which he had from paypal) and also vulgar (multiple explicit/racist rants and N-Bombs dropped). I have taken my matters up the chain with eBay. After talking to eBay at length he has multiple strikes for buying peoples positive feedback, and sending harassing emails when he is not happy. Was just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience and wanted to warn fellow collectors.

Since he does have 10,000+ sales over the past decade eBay won't do anything.

Here's buyer to watch out for.

raffyrowdy150.

He bought a coo model body from me Saturday afternoon.
I emailed him that body would ship out on Monday and
we would follow-up Monday afternoon with email
containing tracking # and expected delivery date.

Early Monday, before I even get home to send out shipping emails,
he sends an email complaining that I didn't ship it yet and what kind
of a seller was I. It was long and worded like it was from an 8 year old
who's first language wasn't English.

When I got home, I sent out his shipping email(item was shipped that morning)
and advised him, I did exactly what I promised.

He says, oh okay, just wanted this item fast.

Today, after I already left positive feedback, he emails me the following

"I got the item today, but I'm going tomorrow to have it return.
Sorry if you don't mind because I found the same item for $5 less. Please reply".

Obviously fishing for a discount.

I explained to him that it says no refunds on my listings.
And that I will not be offering a discount.

And next he'll be threatening neg feedback.

I knew something was up, when he went ballistic on me after
I shipped the item. But by that time it's too late.

Save yourself some trouble, put him on the blocked buyer list.

It's the same person with two accounts (uses them to bid on his own items to inflate the price). Deals mostly in saber props and parts. He's been going around "buying" items but then not paying, while he turns around and tries to flip the items for more. If he has no luck he then tries to cancel the sale citing a host of reasons.

There's a couple threads on theRPF and Rebelscum about the kid--he had put a deposit on a saber someone had listed for $400 on theRPF and was going around various forums listing it for $900. Anyway, save yourself the hassle, especially if you deal in any of those types of items.

I'm not sure,but can't you give it to the 2nd highest bidder,being that the highest bidder hasn't paid or responded to your messages,I'm pretty sure if you get it touch with eBay they will actually notify the 2nd highest bidder that they can have a 2nd chance at the item. Hope this works out for you.

Ugh...Why do I still sell crap on Ebay is beyond me.

I sold a bunch of old GI Joe boxes, empty boxes, clearly stated in the auction. The buyer now sends me several nasty emails, 3 out 4 words were F bombs. Calls me a fraud, etc. Files a claim with PayPal that I sold him empty boxes and that I started my bidding too high? Whaaaat? I have 100% feedback well over 400 transactions. What should i do? I know that Paypal usually sides with the buyers. This guy even cursed in the dispute that he filed with Paypal! :lol

Ok so i got a HT TDKR 1/4 figure for 405$ shipped on ebay a month ago,yeah i know...too good to be true but his feedback was allright with 100% positive.I sent him 3 messages the past 2 weeks with no response.And today i log on ebay and see 5 buyers have left him a negative feedback saying he is a fraud.
My item is supposed to be delivered between the 10th and 17th of september.
Do you suggest i wait a bit longer or should i open a dispute with Paypal right away?I have 180 days to open a dispute through paypal,but what if the seller for example delete his ebay account?Im still covered right?
Thanks :)

If i will get a refund regardless whether he deletes his ebay account or not,i will wait until the 17th(6 days) which is his estimate.Just to avoid Paypal saying i should wait until the 17th first.
After i bought the item from this seller located in Hong Kong,he told me the item will ship from China.That's when i started to get a bad feeling.

So yeah, just like I thought, raffyrowdy150,(post219) left neg feedback for me which I disputed.

The really stupid thing; is he emailed me everything through eBay.....:lol

His abusive emails, when he went off the deep end. When he said because
I'm not giving him a refund he would just make something up
to and refuse package. So in my dispute I just told them to review
the eBay emails between us.

Because I remained professional and he went to crazytown.
Even the neg feedback shows how do-wack-a-do he is.
He never opened the packaged, but listed item not as described & damage.
I took pictures of the packaged before I opened it to double check he
didn't steal any parts. All the parts were there of course, because box was never
opened. I told this to eBay as well and said would be happy to send pictures.
I gave him a refund once I made sure everything was there. So I did everything
by the book.

Ebay said after the review all the information, that he could be banned from eBay.

We should take all our business off ebay and make a site throught the right connections to deal strictly in any type of tooys,with different rules. Sounds like the key to the unlocked door,the question is are people willing to put together a site like this?

Just out of curiosity what was the item in question on ebay? If haven't moved yer then........? Who knows,let me know,or if i know someone can obviously help too. Ultimately hope it worked out for you already bro. I just had a incident with ebay this past Sunday and totally ruined my morning. Check this out,i list a item,fist of all the item i listed was bought by Echeck over 2 weeks prior to what I'm about to tell this forum about whzt you guys already know Ebay sucks!! Anyway by advice of eBay i wited for funds to pop up in the account so i could get paid. Nothing happens,i trash the persons buying history after getting of course not 1 of my messages back either,so i put it up for sale again,30 day window to buy,bought in under 2 days,so i do the normal process get ready to ship etc... Ultimately ebay tells me while I'm on the way to the post office that they put down that it was paid again by the same buyer who i sat on waiting over 2 weeks with no communication,it wasn't that the person bought it,it was that ebay put through in there system that it was paid again. Don't ask me,believe me it sounds just as crazy to me,but here is the persons ebay account and definitely add to,stat the *** outta my world. alanmari.ipps1s so keep adding people to this list everyone,we love collecting and to screw with you in that area is definitely a off limits spot,so even if it helps 1 person,which I'm sure it will do more then that,keep it rollin against phoney sellers!

Why have people PM you? This thread is for posting these guys. If he's a fraud, let people know it? Did he have good feedback up till that point? Could be something happened. My brother sold on eBay and had a heart attack. He had a real mess when he got back online.

Wanted to wait a few more days just to be sure.He had 100% positive,but only 12 feedbacks.It was when i had my first post here 5 days agoo negative feedbacks started to flow in.Ive seen what i can assume is him under many usernames with same items over and over again lately,so he is definitely around.

Just filled a dispute with Paypal.
His ebay username is maria56498

BE AWARE of 24 or 48 hour auctions with Hot Toys figures specially from sellers with few feedbacks.It is most likely him.

I've got one for you guys: lizard-69

Block him all you can. This guy bought an action figure from me through ebay's global shipping Program. When he got it, he claims it was broken and demanded a full refund. My listings don't offer returns. Here's the thing, I sent a mint, well intact figure. This guy either damaged the figure I sent and then wanted to return it, or got my mint figure and tried to send his broken one in return. More shade on this guy, he ordered it on 8/24/2015 and opened a case over a month later. EBay allows returns up to 45 days. This dude waited until the last second to file a claim. He essentially got an expensive, mint figure and ended up keeping the figure and getting a partial refund on it. MAkes me sick. He still left bad feedback. EBay protects system abusers like him. So please add him to your blocked list.

And if this dude is on these forums, **** you.

Sorry to hear about your problems. But my advice is do NOT use Global Shipping Program. Did you know they repack your carefully packed items just to save on weight and thus on shipping cost? The seller sounds like an idiot, but might have not been only his fault, but also the fault of GSP guys.

Watch this, a long video indeed, but will shed some light on the GSP "professionalism" and you can do your own Google (https://www.google.ro/#q=global+shipping+program+problems) research on GSP issues:

I removed the global shipping program as well after making a sale that went to Erlanger Kentucky,which i think is the main hub for the global shipping program. Even though i didn't have any issues with the sale the point of this message is to beware to have the global shipping program unchecked. To me it doesn't make any sense why everytime you list a item ebay automatically has their global shipping program checked,if you want to use that then you should check it,not have it automatically checked ahead of time. Another thing is you don't see the option to uncheck the program unless you look for more information under mailing,such as wether buyer payes shipping etc... Ultimately another sneakey way Ebay conducts business and I'm very thankful for the informative video Luke and hopefully one day a company who has large amounts of capital and run a business the way it should,unlike ebay will show up and when selling goods we can use a different company. Granted there are other companies, but ebay has the bulk of the buyers/sellers,especially when it comes to toys and better prices for them. Anyway thanks again for that video and if you live in the U.S. and want to ship international,leave the global shipping program out of it and uncheck the box before lisiting any items.

My first experience with the global shipping was basically this: It was an over-sized box going to France. The buyer paid but then there were complications with the payment (it was back when Global shipping was first being offered), I can't remember the specific problem. But it caused me to call eBay about global shipping, and I found out that if I had sent it out, they wouldn't have been able to mail it anyway because it was an over-sized box and at least at that time they didn't deal with over-sized boxes BUT they also didn't have anything in their terms that they didn't. So I'm glad I called, because basically I would have sent it to them, then they would have either needed money to send it back to me because they wouldn't ship to France, OR they would have destroyed the item - which was a custom item I had spent a few days creating. So I NEVER use Global Shipping - as far as I'm concern I'm better off taking the risks that go with international shipping on my own and I don't see any benefit of doing it through eBay - it's just one more layer of bureaucracy and things that can go wrong.
