    An update on my Quakeblast purchase from shenzhouxing2013. My tracking number showed some strange behavior so I went to my local post office Saturday where it was supposed to be. The guy there said that they located the package and I should get it on Monday. Monday passed with nothing delivered, and this morning I got a call from the post office that they had it. I checked the tracking and it said "Delivered, PO Box".

    So I go to the post office and the guy comes back with a very small box about a few inches in size. He showed me the label on it and it had the wrong name and a street address that doesn't exist. It also had a tracking number different from the one I got, but he said when scanned it shows my number. Anyways, I told him that couldn't be what I was supposed to get so he said he'd return it to sender and printed me out some info. I hope this doesn't present any issues with getting my refund.

    So basically, I was scammed like others by this seller. I payed $52 for it, which I thought was a good deal and not too cheap. Lesson learned though, when I purchase from ebay it will only be from highly trustworthy ebay sellers such as baba from now on.

    This has happened to me a couple of times. You need to take pictures of the package with the tracking number and possibly a video of the postal service worker scanning the package and it showing the tracking number you were given as evidence to eBay.

    The last time this happened to me I received a janky bracelet instead the transformer I had ordered. I took pictures of package and tracking number on the package and emailed ebay promptly and explained what was going on. I was issued a refund within in an hour.

    Well this is interesting. I'm not too concerned yet, since it's only been a few days. Although, it's slightly annoying that he doesn't have the products 'in hand'.

    This is for KO Ironhide and Prowl. I will update when I have more info.

    I am sorry to hear what had happened. I have stopping using Chinese sellers other than baba for a long time. It is just too much trouble to go through and baba ships toys lightning quick. The tracking number is usually active in a couple of days and he replies all my messages. To offset the price difference, I buy during the ebay flash sale ($15 off $75, once per month) together with baba's $5 off $70 coupon it saves me $20 on every purchase. I also use my wife's Ebay account so I can buy two figures at once if needed. The only drawback is she knows how much I spent on toys. :(

    Ugh, another negative feedback today for hxli7777_5. Not good. My tracking numbers didn't show anything for almost 2 weeks, and after 2.5 weeks tracking still shows in China. Should I file Paypal claim now or wait?


    Edit: I've decided to wait until the 3-week mark hits (this coming Saturday, 6/10). If package has not been processed through and left China facility by then, I will message the seller asking to furnish the item or process a refund within 48 hrs or I will open a Paypal claim on Monday 6/12.

    I went ahead and ordered a Quakeblast from baba yesterday and got a notice for tracking the same day. I have a good feeling I made the right decision to pay a little more to avoid the hassle of scammers. Not to mention I'd rather support a legit seller than someone that will most likely go rogue at some point.

    Re: whzhen1976-9

    I sent the Seller a message last night asking for an update on the shipping and just got this response:

    [​IMG]

    College entrance exams causing delays? Makes no sense to me but I'll give him time to prove his reliability before I jump to any conclusions.

    You should contact the Seller for an update if you haven't already.
