    Default Negative & Neutral Feedback Thread- Read Before Buying!!!

    This thread will now act as a place to find relevant and updated information regarding which members have been given negative and neutral feedback ratings.

    A few rules:
    1) Feel free to post information in this thread; it can be used to update and make any changes

    2) This is not an automated system, so for it to work please PM me (or add it to the list) with information on any issues and I will add them to the list

    3) Buy and sell at your own risk; feedback is only an indicator of past performance. As we've learned in the past even members in good standing can turn bad; so be careful with who you send your money to or trade figures with.
    -These threads are useful reading:
    Rules of the Marketplace
    Use Caution when buying or trading!!!
    Rules/Guidelines and Information for Buying.

    4) Also remember negative and neutral feedback does not always equal a scammer; there are people on the list with one or two negatives that have since not had any further issues. So like all things use your judgement when viewing the information and making decisions about how you want to proceed with a deal.

    There are 3 sections- Negative and Neutral which are for both buyers and sellers and the 3rd relates only to customizers:

    1) Negative Feedback:

    abnpredator [-1] Info here.

    Acid Burn [-1] Info here.

    Addicted2Collecting[-100] Member recently began selling off large portions of his collection and requested payment be sent as a gift. Delays happened and then there were claims of medical complications from the seller. A few members did receieve their items, some recieved refunds, but others got nothing or had to file a claim with Paypal to regain their money. Evidently this member has done similar things on other boards in the past. You can get more information here

    Blakus939 [-1] Buyer received damaged item and not as described, information is here:
    http://www.sideshowcollectors.com/fo...postcount=6324

    BlindVoyeur [-100] Many commissioned projects were not completed and while some refunds were given many are still waiting for items or their money back. A refund thread was started by the member, but he has not followed through on any in a long while and is no longer responding to inquiries. You can find information regarding this here

    Yes, you are correct... I'll go ahead and remove his name.

    And to be clear I just copied and pasted the old list; so if there are other issues that need to be addressed please let me know.

    Passing this on from a Statue Collectors group on facebook.
    Carleton L------ [email protected] Ebay ID leatherface20066
    He's scammed a couple people over there and from what I've read, he's been doing it for years on other forums.
    He'll take your money and never send your item. Then make excuse after excuse as to why you haven't received your item.

    My rules for buying are probably well known but, they are great for protecting yourself.
    1. Never pay as "Gift" unless youre willing to throw that $$ away.
    2. Always file a dispute before Paypal's 40 day limit is up. Even if he/she says it has been shipped or promises to ship soon. Scammers prey on patient and trusting collectors.
    3. Do a name search before buying from someone you haven't dealt with or someone who doesn't have a lot of positive feedback.

    Be careful ladies and gents.

    User: Greedowan - buyers approach with extreme caution.

    I've delayed posting this negative feedback because I've been waiting for the dust to settle from my transaction.

    I bought a large life-size Terminator T-600 statue from Greedowan last summer (June 4, 2015) for a significant amount of money. Days after the deal was set and I had paid, the seller contacted me asking for additional money to cover shipping supplies. The initial price was very fair, so I was willing to pitch in. After he had the extra money, there were weeks of shipping delays. He kept putting me off and putting me off. Eventually, I was fed up and managed to spur him into shipping the statue.

    He sent me photos of the packing job, which looked terrible. I told him to re-pack it before it was shipped. He assured me it was taken care of.

    Days later, the story took a bad turn. To my total amazement, Greedowan called me from the UPS store asking for more money because he had miscalculated shipping... by $500! At this point I had sunk a ton of money and time into the transaction, so I felt like I had gone to far to back out. After I paid up again, the statue finally shipped in 4 massive boxes.

    When the statue arrived, I knew right away we had a problem. The boxes were mangled, and the parts could be heard shuffling around inside.The packing was completely irresponsible given the sive, weight, and value of the T-600. The foot was shattered, the ammo belt was trashed, there were holes punched in the legs, the base had a 8" long crack (all the way through), tons of paint chips, and little sculpt details were broken off all over. The statue couldn't even be assembled in the condition it was in. Shockingly, the seller tried to push the UPS claim off on me, and a real mess followed. UPS refused the insurance claim, due to Greedowan's packing job. This left me paying far more than we agreed to, only to receive a destroyed piece. I wasn't going to let this happen without a fight.

    I eventually managed to get a very small partial refund from Greedowan, but this was only after 3.5 months of relentlessly pursuing him. This guy was about as irresponsible a seller as there are. Hopefully his smaller sales are smoother, but his handling of this transaction was awful. The transaction started in early June, and wasn't resolved until mid-September of 2015.

    In the end, I rebuilt the T-600 and made it a custom from the ground up. It was months of painstaking work. I'll never do business with Aiden (Greedowan) again. Had I not been someone who did custom work as a hobby, I would have been totally screwed. I've attached our email thread & text messages to this post. Cross reference the dates/communication in both to get a better idea of what a mess this was, and the lack of follow-through on his end. The critical points in the emails have been highlighted. I tried to keep commincation as codrial as possible, as I was afraid of also losing my meager $300 partial refund.

    My advice is to stay as far away from this member (Greedowan, aka AidenFett, aka Ebay Arts) as humanly possible. He doesn't at all represent what this community stands for. Period.
