another satisfied netclow customer here. BC Huff 2.0 arrived today.
If you stick to a handful of proven good sellers like netclow, baba, and others mentioned on the first page of this thread you'll be fine in most cases (we've still seen a couple good sellers flip on us here and there). It's the unknown sellers with too good to be true prices who pose risks. Your risk of getting scammed increases when you're looking for that one hard-to-find item. I've made dozens upon dozens of Ebay orders with Chinese sellers for 2 years now and have only been scammed twice. One of them was when I was frantically searching for Stomp X (which I eventually found on Amazon) which had started drying up.
I was about to pull the trigger for the same reasons you detailed. Low enough prices, and no negative feedback at all. I waited and I guess it was good I did so. Seeing you, I guess we are all pretty much in the same collectors boat.
Arrived last week in about 2 weeks to backwater Ireland. Ordered on the 31st, dispatched on the 1st. He's been delivering for a couple of years and is on the good guys list.
Echoing this. Thought I'd double-check here first before nabbing Richthofen tonight.
But now I'm looking for the "best" deal and weilangaofeng2015 has two for different prices. One is in GBP and the other is in USD though, and the difference is only about NZ$4, so it should be okay. He's been on the good seller list for a while, so he SHOULD be fine. Guess I'll take a risk.
Oh, and no Gahz'ranka yet. Still going to wait until Saturday though (it says it's due on Friday).
EDIT: It's actually due today (Thursday) but knowing NZ Post, if it's going to show up, it'll show up on a Friday, not a Thursday.
I'm not so sure yet if he's gone rogue or if his account got hacked. I messaged him for a tracking # after eBay gave me notice that my order was shipped and didn't initially get a tracking #. Today I got a reply with one and there does appear to be movement on it. I guess we'll see what I get when it arrives.
I purchased and received a Shadow Fisher hip kibble upgrade kit for MP Ratchet from weilangaofeng2015 a couple months ago. Smooth transaction.
Maybe he just needs the dough. Maybe.
Hi can I ask why zhenglen is on the bad list? He has 2 neutral feedbacks but is at 100% positive. One feedback was for a damaged box and the other is in a language I can't read and at least 6 months old. Not saying he shouldn't be on the bad list, just asking why.
2 days ago he sold MMC R-28 Tyrantron for 35 $, I guess this was kinda' automatic way to the bad list
He's cutting his prices just like yangchuanyan2013 (who has sold a whole bunch of his really cheap scams since, unfortunately, and no, my Gahz'ranka didn't arrive today either),, which is pretty much always a sign of them going rogue.
I sent yangchuanyan2013 a message but haven't got a response yet. It's a requirement from PayPal to do so, so I thought I may as well get the ball rolling. Tomorrow evening, I'll open a case...
Guess I might get Klaatu instead and get Gahz'ranka later on in the year. I dunno.
I hope someone starts giving him negative feedback. Now he has everything way marked down.
Don't worry, I'll do it soon enough.
Got it, see that now. Thanks!!
damn, so i guess gt-04 j4zz is out at 35 bucks.. way to f up my dreams yangchu
I bought the 3rd party Powerglide from yangchuanyan2013 last week just a little before the drastic price cuts. I'm sure I got scammed but USPS says my package will be delivered on Monday. I wonder if it's going to be a keychain. He did get a positive feedback today about one of those Combaticons though, so I don't know.
Yeah this seller is confusing me. I didnt buy something at his current crazy mark downs, but I got one of the Havoc limbs for a pretty good deal. He is screaming scammer, but the tracking he gave me said the package is on the way, and he is still getting good feedback on his on sale items.
His latest positive feedback is from one of those discounted Brawls in Spanish. Very strange. I do expect to receive a box of dick showed erasers on Monday though.
It's Friday here now so I guess I'll see if mine turns up today. When I wake up. Because I've been up all night working again. Because a guy in charge of a project decided not to listen to any feedback despite being absolutely horrendous at marketing, and so now I have to clean up after him lest we lose our funding.
ANYWAY, my problems aside, this is really a shitshow lately with eBay sellers, but quite possibly this one in particular.
One thing I didn't really mention before is just how quickly yangchuanyan2013 shipped my Gahz'ranka. As in, within a few hours or so of me buying it. Not unheard of, but suspicious, especially given everything else we know. Also, mine seems to be the only one without a tracking number - everyone else here who bought from him seems to have got a tracking number. Furthermore, even though he had Gahz'ranka for the cheapest price when I bought mine, it was only by a few dollars or so (at most it was NZ$5, which is still less than US$5). It wasn't anything that immediately raised red flags for me. Usually it's a bit more obvious when they're turning rogue (like his behaviour over the past week or two).
