    Yep, SpeedPAK starts with ES and and has a combination of 26 numbers and letters following (all of mine have been more numbers ending in 0A but that could be a reference to Australia)

    China Post (for me anyway, again the LZ could be a destination reference) starts with LZ, ends with CN and has 9 numbers in between.

    I don't think either service is faster or slower than the other - an oversized seeker is waiting at my post office after 6 days with China Post from TF Direct and yet an MP10 upgrade kit took 24 days with China Post from kingslayer777 - both were shipped within a day of ordering and both (apparently) traveled by plane. toyspark (who sells genuine Takara) uses registered airmail with Hong Kong post and that is guaranteed to go fast - everything else seems to be a crapshoot, with, thus far, only SpeedPAK playing customs officer with toy guns.

    Can we get a list of all the toys stopped by SpeedPAK? Mine was an MP10 KO.

    This way readers of this thread can then see which items not to order from sellers that use SpeedPAK, without penalizing those genuine sellers that are probably finding the service as frustrating as us buyers - like jinfen-3 and sczg_969_8

    So what’s the protocol if you get burned by a seller? You file for a refund/claim with PayPal right, not eBay?

    And once you are found in the right, how long does it it take for PayPal to refund you money back?

    Good to know for future reference.
    Thanks in advance :)

    Ebay:
    It's faster to go through PayPal for a refund. Call the number in the first post of this thread, explain your situation to them and follow their instructions if they give you any.

    I've gotten refunds anywhere within a couple of hours to around 10 days. Either way, it's faster than dealing with eBay.

    In case anyone is actually interested, I got a response from sfa6650. He basically answered that he is "dealing with his batch of stock, only for processing, not for making money, so it is very favorable".

    Yeah right.

    Make of that what you will, I am still reporting this bozo to ebay. Even thought I know ebay won't do anything.

    My order from caosuyun226-6 is still stuck in China, but people are starting to give him bad reviews for no shows. So I started my resolution process.

    On a similar note, my order from kefeilgz2225 is still in Speedpak limbo since late September (ordered on the same day as caosuyun226 during the 15% special)
    is he still legit?

    I'd contact orangeconnex.com on their help page and message them (with Google translate if you don't speak Chinese) to see what happened to it. They were the only ones to tell me my Caosuyun226-6 order was seized by customs.

    Is PayPal at this point familiar with these kind of situations happening to people with Chinese sellers on eBay? Meaning is there a lot of explaining required sellers going rouge...I’m getting concern I may be next....

    Thanks in advance:)

    I've never used them before so I can say off personal experience with them. I don't see any glaring red flags on the surface. You may want to check the list and ask around or run a search on this thread.

    I believe @Pessimus Prime and @pilot00 bought from him before.

    I actually didn't end up buying from gongxifacai8; I asked around about him but by the time I got done dithering the item I wanted was out of stock.

    I just now saw the above message, after placing an order with seller "mengxiao_cn" as well. Unfortunately, I did not see the message until AFTER I had already paid. Also the selling listing disappeared after I had purchased i....Hmmmm not looking too good.

    Will see if I hear anythign from the seller over the next 2 days.

    Would this be a good indication to start calling PayPal about getting a refund before it’s too late?

    I bought and received MMC PS-09 Ocular Max - Hellion from that seller. I received it about 2 weeks ago.
