    I've bought from him before and it was quick and good. I'm awaiting another package to arrive from him in a couple of days. It's been in MISSISSAUGA, Ontario for about a week now. I'm not sure what the hold up has been, but we have had a lot of winter storms.

    I noticed a bunch of items he has up for sale have been discounted recently. It makes me suspicious. I hope he doesn't go bad. He has very good ratings...

    How long ago was your previous order before the current one?

    I ordered from wanli-chengke on December 8th and the item arrived in about 2 weeks.

    Recently I ordered January 27th and the item has been in one of Canada's main shipping hubs for about a week. I'll know in a day or so if he is still good. However, his price drop is a very recent thing!

    I ordered on the 27th and mine's been sitting in customs since Feb. 7.... so, we'll see.

    Hoping he didn't get through CNY and just say F this, I'm done.

    Still waiting on him to send missing parts for my Ramjet. I left negative feedback for him since he was dragging his heels. That and I filed a paypal claim. Finally he's paying attention now... But still no parts.

    NY customs. Normally my stuff gets through within a few days but I guess the agents like my package this time.

    I placed an order from weixiaolu2013 on 2/1. It's been stuck in ISC Miami since 2/16 (4 days so far).

    I'm on my phone so I can't copy paste it but my last update was 31/01 and it showed as arrived in the U.K. and hasn't moved since.

    Based on my past experiences this likely means it was addressed with a jumbled address to make it impossible to deliver. There is nothing being held with my address in customs as I have checked with the postal service.

    My package from wanli-chengke has arrived.... But it's arrived back in China! I don't know what's up. Perhaps there was a customs issue or the delivery address was unreadable. Either way, it's not here.

    File a claim. I ordered from same seller on Jan 26 the package said stuck at Miami isc sense feb 9. I called jacking st the isc and she said that it never arrived the reason for the scan was they scanned the bin not the actual package. Give Jackie a call and have her check yours too. Her number is 1-305-718-7505. But I would act now sense this this happened with me with same seller

    I don't suppose you still have the tracking from your December order that was delivered? Would be interesting to see if the infamous "Chen Aiyin" appears there too.

    Ordered a ko mp28 from lcukboy. I'll update how it goes. "Private" feedback which for some reason I'm able to view on my phone which has good feedback for the same or more expensive items this month at the same price point. Items are all priced within eBay norms so I'm optimistic.

    I opened a dispute for pengqianwen13 a week ago and got my money back today. If they don't include a tracking number you don't have to wait for the estimated delivery date I don't think. I opened the ebay dispute on Feb 14th, so I obviously didn't have to wait for the delivery date.

    The cool thing is that you get refunded the $15 coupon onto your paypal account so you can use it for something else or even wait for another flash sale coupon and get $30 off an ebay purchase.

    Actually I called ISC Miami directly earlier this morning with same number drazen gave prior to me see his post. Sure enough I spoke to a helpful woman who told I was the 4th call she received today about Transformer items from China. She confirmed that my package was never in the shipping container. Ol' boy never sent it. I'm still puzzled as how the tracking number was active and made it to Miami. At any rate, I notified the seller and let him know I'm on to him and gave him 24hrs to refund my money otherwise I will file a claim.

    eBay told me I had to wait till the expected date of apr 4 or I could file with PayPal now. I filed with PayPal and it's a 10 day wait but weixlilao2013 now has removed all items for sale so that should be a big red flag and indicator of what's going on

    Was the dispute with PayPal or eBay?

    I've learned that going directly thru Paypal is the fastest route even calling Paypal by phone and speaking with a live agent. Given that he removed his listings, there's no point in waiting for him to reply to my message. I'm filing today. My quest for Stomp X continues.

    weixiaolu2013 is now a full blown scammer.
    @botfan please add weixiaolu2013 to the Bad List.
