    Looks like the seller going or gone rogue....

    I hope not. I had a successful order with them in the last week or two, and I've got another one (supposedly) on the way. I'd hate for somebody with 2700+ feedback to go bad.

    I swear if he went rogue I'm only making business with some 10yo accounts with a 5 digit feedback.

    Eh, it's one transaction in the last month of well over 100 total, and they've since responded to the feedback, possibly because the buyer never properly contacted them, but regardless, let's not go into crazy paranoid mode because about one transaction in a history of nearly 3,000 in over 3 1/2 years got sent the wrong item...

    Of the two last incorrect transactions. One of them was an issue with the item sent and he answered that it will be "fixed". The other is the item not being send at all, let's just wait before we make a conclusion, this has happened before not only with him but with the rest of the chinese sellers.

    Soo... bit of an issue worth being paranoid about, looking through liujunling87_5's current item listings is a long list of almost every item marked down anywhere from 10-35% off the already marked below average prices. The single feedback isn't concerning, but these significant price drops is very concerning to me at the moment. Caution is advised.

    *Groan* I literally just bought Unique Toys Challenger from this seller after getting La Hire from him with no problem.....

    I bought it on the 7th, and have yet to get a shipped notice. How much longer should I wait?

    And to be fair, the 7th WAS a holiday in China

    Ain't China one of those regions who take extra long holidays?

    That's a shame. La Hire is an excellent figure. I'm trying to file a PayPal claim but I keep getting an error.

    Depends on the holiday I think...

    I'm not sure what's up but everyone keep an eye out on what you buy. I am seeing a BUNCH of accounts dropping prices to suspicious levels. Like some are around 10 or 20$ below what seems to be the market norm.

    Or maybe I am missing something that someone can fill me in that is going on that would cause the sudden drop in prices? I can't think of anything specific with the holiday week ending over a week ago. I can only think of maybe the HK protests are causing some flack?

    Aaaaand Loudpedal actually arrived too! Day366 is still a good guy!

    About bloody time too, since it's my 4th attempt to buy Loudpedal on eBay! First one had it listed but was sold out - that was Jiangyaoming2018 btw, who is still very much a good guy! - and the 2nd and 3rd scammed me.

    I've ordered from him, he is responding to messages, but I've had no shipping update since a shipping number was generated, but doesn't actually register as a valid number. The purchase was on the 28th september

    I just filed a claim on him/her as well. Had to do it the hard way and actually call customer support because the site was being wonky...
