Is there a meme somewhere of DJ Kaled saying "Another One"
You should be fine other than probably having to wait about a month to get your money back. But if eBay can shut them down from scamming more people sooner, figured it was worth the 5 minutes to tip them off. I'll be curious to see if they take action sooner than later considering the good feedback...
Unrelated but now when sending payments friends and family to Canada I'm suddenly paying a fee, even if I use my bank account and send usd to USD.
Thanks everyone who said "obvious scam but I'll get my money back from PayPal"
Eventually these things catch up, eBay will increase or add new fees, as will PayPal and frankly I don't blame them, they're not the ones scamming or being scammed.
Simple truth, some random guy comes up to you on the street you wouldnt give him $50 for a black bin bag he claims has a $100+ toy inside would you?
not sure how to read this, not sure if you are taking a shot or not....
but i am pretty sure a person with feedback all positive with over 700+ is a safe bet, more often than not. Especially when i have bought an item from him before.
I was just trying to pass on a deal, if there was one. Wasnt till after someone said SCAM, that i went a noticed all the other auctions and the notice-able savings
on another note, we have to pay a fee to send money to the USA also. Just greedy paypal
No, my "unrelated" comment was sincere and not sarcasm. Ugh, as is that sentence although I could see how you could easily think it so! I was trying to make it clear I wasn't taking a shot at you!
In your case you got caught. We've all been there. Im just peed off at a lot of people who have been in the past coming in and boasting saying literally "this is an obvious scam but I don't care, I'll be fine!" You thought you'd found a deal and did check feedback etc. That has happened to us all. I know for sure I've fallen for it!
May be on the lookout for the red version if still available at TFCon.
The dude has sold dozens and dozens of items so far, no negative feedback YET. He's going out with a bang.
Either eBay is slow to react or giving them the heads up was a waste of my 5 min...
I thjjtits the first. They surely have a procedure in place and each step takes time and on step involves the request being buried in peat for 3 months.
Hey, I said they HAD a procedure, not that it was efficient!!
I'm back in the game on Sphinx and have a chance to get a used (like new) Dark Blue w/ parachute for the same price as the lighter Alternative version (Brand new). Any advice? I personally like the dark blue a little better, but I've heard the light blue (owned it before) has some slight improvements. I'd love to hear which way you guys would go on this one. Thanks!
My personal preference would be to stick with the newer, lighter blue option. This is because they fixed the front end collapsing issue that plagued the original.
Things like wheel issues really annoy me (which is why the MMC Trailbreaker is a no go for me). So that would be my reason to avoid the original release.
I'm quite happy with my dark blue original but it's true. The light blue version does improve on the QC shortcomings of the dark blue original... Now that you bumped this thread, I'm reminded to add the shifting Sphinx to the list of TF's to buy.
Sorry to bump an old thread. Anyone have any idea where a guy can buy PS-01A Sphinx???
Been looking at most of the common stores and no luck. Should of bought him last month when he was found everywhere
I wish they'd rerelease the chromed spoiler version with the parachute.
Never feel sorry.
Kapow has him:
Perfection Series PS-01A Sphinx Alternative - Kapow Toys
Works out a little pricey with exchange rate and shipping, but this may be my only option this late in the game
pre-ordered one at ToyDojo few weeks ago, kind of surprised that he is already not available
however, PS-01 with parachute can be ordered directly from MMC PS-01 Sphinx with PS plus parachute
if anybody interested
Yeah, I got mine for 79.99 with them. They're planning a sale in the upcoming days, but I'm not sure whether he will be discounted.
