    Ok. Been checking my tracking number and it still says "status not available". Getting worried now.

    Sorry if this was brought up

    I saw 2 sites people mention

    17track
    USPS

    My ref did show up on 17track- but been at sorting office since Monday, not on USPS

    Not sure if I’m reading posts right but How do people know the package size and address that was written on the packaged

    Yeah it sucks. Zongbo refunded me straight away, and it sounds like he's doing that across the board, at least for now. Which is a small mercy at least.

    For the, what looks like hundreds of buyers he's scammed and is continuing to scam, he'll hold onto their money temporarily to pump into new stock to sell. Rinse and repeat. No doubt when he loses this account he'll just set up another. eBay really need to get on top of all this.

    Personally I don't think they'll do anything about it. It's a cycle that'll keep on continuing.

    Let me remind you guys I was refunded by Zongbo1026, but here's what happened today. I got a box that had all paper bag stuffing, It had a smaller box in it with a black and silver beaded bracelet. He contacted me saying I must return payment since item was received. Then he said he's contacting paypal to file a claim against me. It was supposed to be a MP36 Megatron. So I took a ton of pictures and put everything back in the box and put return to sender on the box. Back to the post office it went.

    Well, tjzhki123-4 got back to me. Refunded my money and told me to keep the figure they sent me.
    Even if it is Detective, it's still technically a free figure.
    Now to find a Brawny...

    My stuff from Zongbo seems like it isn't moving. It made it through customs. Went to a distributing center in Queens, NY and has said that it's on the way to Amsterdam, NY for three days now. I live 3-4 hours from Queens. 3 days for it to not be with my local post office

    Box was damaged. Figure looks fine. I paid about $70 with ebay coupon. Not bad at all. Shipping was ultra slow.

    lilanqing2013 doesn’t seem to be on the Good Sellers list yet so I’ll give him a shoutout. Just got Quakeblast from him. Ordered on 12-20, arrived on 1-12. Box was fine, figure was fine.

    Biggest complaint is the week-long handling time before shipping. Never had that issue with other China sellers before. Other than that he’s good.

    That's the norm with him. Glad your figure was fine.

    That's what's probably going on with my FT Apache. I'm usually patient but not this week (just hectic and kinda bad). I think I'm gonna chill and wait til my order arrives from wangpan986-1.

    Not quite "bad seller list" material yet, but I ordered a Grinder from Geo5fish777 on the 31st of Dec. He shipped it a few days later. It's been 8 or 9 days and tracking still says Status Not Available.

    He said he will check and if it's lost or has other problems, he'll refund me.

    I really hope he isn't turning. I bought stuff from him earlier this year and he was a good guy to do business with.

    Looks that way. He sent me a bunk tracking number and is not responding to emails. I put in a claim through PayPal.

    Zongo sent me Megs, but scammed me on FT-07..After no replies for moneyback request, I called Ebay and Paypal. I just spent 2 hours speaking with reps from both. Thanks to this message board and some of our complaints. They are now working to freeze his Paypal account and escalate it even further. Todd is who I spoke to and provided him with this website and message board for reference as well as in depth information into how all of the sellers are working to scam customers. A security team member is going to be calling me back with updates and they are sending me a refund asap. If anyone can spare an hour of your time and do the same for whatever seller has scammed you, please do so. The more complaints and notations they have about an account, the quicker something gets escalated. Zongo had numerous complaints but nothing had been done as of yet, this rep actually walked over the info to his manager and security team. I will post any updates I get.
