    Bought DNA Fort Max kit from him 1 month ago. Got tracking number within 2 days. It was active but last activity was "dispatch from sorting center Beijing". That was 25 days ago. Has anyone else waited that long for package to get from origination country to destination country?

    BTW, you can see all feedback if you use eBay app...even "private" ones that you can't see when using website.

    Hmm. That sounds way to long. I'd call Paypal for a refund.
    Thanks for the tip about the private feedback.

    I currently have an order with him as well. I have the same situation. My item was dispatched 13 days ago from Beijing. I feel like it is unusually long. Typically, it's onshore by now.

    This "disappearance" after dispatch is something I have not experienced. How is this "scam" (assuming it is one) carried out? I mean, how does the sender get the tracking # to show dispatched and then apparently disappears. If there truly is a way to pull off this type of tracking scam then this is going to create problems because eBay will say to wait since "its still in process of delivery". I have gotten tracking #s that never went live so they were fake tracking #s. But this...

    BTW, apparently my package was sent via epacket which has delivery time of 10-20 days.

    Ebay:
    Some scammers are trying a trick whereby they send along something crappy and small but the address/name is deliberately mislabeled. The tracking still shows as working (for the most part), but delays are created and sometimes the package does a U-turn to China, because it can't be delivered. At that point the seller will say to you, "Hey guy... don't worry. I'll resend the item... trust me."

    Don't believe them.

    I had an item with tracking. It was partially mislabeled and was sent to Sweden instead of Canada. Now the Swedes are smart, so they got the package to Canada and I received it (addressed to someone else with MOST of my address on it). However, if I go into the tracking, it doesn't say it was delivered, it says the Swedish postal system has it. So according to the tracking, it's in limbo.

    And yes the little envelope had a little crap lego thing in it.

    The animal tapes that come with KFC SG Transistor are garbage. SG Transistor himself is one bad mother! Hopefully your order will work out. My KFC Citizen Stack hasn't reached the great white North yet.

    I have an order with furongchen138 as well.. Its only been a few days. Some of his prices are low, yet other items are average. I am also aware of the private hidden feedback. Just playing the test subject, I guess.. I'll report back what happens.

    Unfortunately she no longer sells on Ebay. She's only on Aliexpress now.

    Going by some of the recent feedback and my personal experience, I'll say definite scammer.

    So I contacted furongchen to ask if he knows what is going on about my package. Just got a reply from him (within few hours). He states it is not normal to have shipping take that long going from China to US once its been dispatched. States he is in contact with China Post to find out what is going on. So we will see what comes out of it...

    When you get the SG transistor I want you to send me your thoughts on the figure. Either he or the RH soundwave are probably going to be my next buy.

    Yeah, I figured the negative feedback would hit him all at once eventually.

    Not half. Fourteen or fifteen negatives today? Opened a dispute myself today, got this message: Screenshot_20170422-195618.png I assume the 'items sent' are plastic beads or something. Continuing my dispute.

    It is much faster to file directly with Paypal if that's how you paid.
