    So the item was removed, and I never received a hacking message from eBay. I’ll contact them tomorrow about a refund.

    Why is tfclub on the bad list? Feedback is solid and I have gotten a few items from them.

    I haven't received anything either. Will give eBay and the seller a few hours and then contact them.

    As memory serves, they're an odd listing on the bad seller list because they're not really scammers or thieves, but had a very long history of selling very cheap KOs, in extremely poor packaging, with lots of damaged shipments, and offering little to no refunds or replacements for their poor handling. While their service has possibly improved over time, and may warrant revisiting, I don't know how many buyers are eager to gamble on their level of handling just yet.

    Safety Tips? Thats Hilarious! My Favorite is this:
    We make purchases for Transformers and receive stickers and legos and empty styrofoam from Scam Sellers, if we receive anything at all, and ebay makes us wait 9 months because of their made up delivery window.. but watch out for Fraudulent Buyers..LMAO!

    I know right! It’s crazy that we have to wait 6-8 weeks for eBay to do anything, when most of the time it is evident after 7-10 days that we’ve been had!

    So who do I contact now?
    liujunling87_5, eBay or PayPal? My tracking number is definitely fake.

    PayPal should be quicker. In my experience eBay won’t do anything until the last day of the expected delivery date.

    Yeah just phoned PayPal, they are going to look into it. Shame really but I hope if they have been compromised they get it sorted out.

    So my PE-DX09 Mega Doragon from day366 has finally arrived to its destination place, after 19 days, in a perfect condition with a "fragile" warning sticker and... I don't know what to say really because the figure is simply mindlowing :eek:  Spectacular! (and I didn't even care for messing with that dragon tail on a ball joint)

    Happy to inform you that there're still good sellers on Ebay like day366 :thumb

    I wish I had found this forum sooner. I'm not completely new to the Masterpiece Line. However, I just discovered 3rd and fourth party manufacturers, went a little crazy and ordered an MPP-10 as well as an Enhancement Set. I received tracking numbers for both items from different sellers. None of them have checked out in the tracking system for 3 days now, i.e. eBay says "Tracking number was provided". However, if I try to tack them, it says that the tracking numbers cannot be found.

    Scam?

    MPP-10 was at around 65,- USD, the enhancement kit about 25,- USD The sellers are supreme0519 and 6hk666666. Both sellers have an almost impeccable ebay history... :( 

    I had to edit this post, because I mixed something up. My purchase of Robot Hero Airstrikes at around 150,- USD is a different matter. The seller is iuubc and appears on this board's bad sellers list. However, only with one complaint as far as I know. He hasn't provided me with a tracking number yet, but has given me some positive feedback. So my hopes are still up on the oversized Starscream.

    Sorry about the confusion.

    Are the tracking numbers valid but not showing any movement or progress, or simply not registering at all? If it’s the former, then it would be alright to just wait, the process can take a few days and you don’t get much in the way of updates sometimes until it hits the US postal system. If it’s the latter, then you’ve likely gotten a rude introduction to rogue eBay sellers and will need to call either eBay or PayPal or both. Good news is 99% of the time you are covered by one of their protection guarantees and will get your money back eventually. Your time and patience are forever gone however I’m afraid. Hope that helps.

    I'd probably give it another day or two just to be sure. If it doesn't show then I guess you know what to do sadly.

    Thanks the both of you for your replies.

    I had to edit my first post, because I mixed something up. However, the two tracking numbers I received cannot be found by any tracking app. So, this isn't a good sign, right? iuubc still has my trust so far.

    As long as I get my money back - in case of a scam - I'm happy enough. , I don't care if it takes some time. I just don't want to lose it completely.
    Maybe you can point me in the right direction here? As far as I've read, I will have to file a complaint with PayPal and inform ebay later, once the money has been refunded?

    not sure how everyone else does it, I always go through eBay first because when I’ve tried to call PayPal first, they’ve always told me to go through the eBay process first, and it that doesn’t get resolved, then they’ll step in. Note that eBay’s guarantee window is 30 days after delivery or estimated delivery, while PayPal’s is 6 months (technically 180 days) from the date of transaction. eBay usually gives a fraudulent seller 3 business days to resolve a dispute, while PayPal usually gives them 7-10 days.

    But in my experience ebay have also said that I can't open a dispute until the estimated delivery date has passed, which is oft times months away! :rolleyes: 

    Whereas Paypal started the dispute instantly :D

    Yeah, that’s kinda why I said ymmv, bc if you get someone on the phone who’s a real stickler for the rules, they’re gonna make you wait even when the conclusion is obvious to anyone. I’m just glad there are two layers of guarantees, because lately you kinda need both.
