    Does anyone have any ebay seller mascot_home? They've been around since 2006 and have no negative ratings. Not sure if I should trust this one...

    Yeah I think the same thing. I'm 99% sure it is another mascotzone, which i believe has numerous accounts. The other issue was I swear I had seen mascot_home being with a 96% review then suddenly spiked to 100% again in the last few weeks. I cannot prove it though so who knows.

    Is there anything shady about stores using super low prices and super high shipping rates? For example, this $7.99+$20.00s&h Newage Bluestreak -- $28 is a reasonable price, but why charge that way?

    If you sort by "lowest price" rather than "lowest price plus shipping" then it will appear first. That's always been my guess.

    The oldest trick in the ebay book. It's how a lot of people actually make money on ebay.

    Back in 'the old days' it was a way of paying less fees... sell an item worth £100, charge 99p for the item then £100 for the postage, only pay fees on the 99p :rolleyes: 

    But it doesn't work as well now, ebay have started taking their 10% out of the price of the item AND the postage o_O 
    So to stop some people from exploiting the system ebay decided to penalise EVERYBODY :mad:

    I agree, it started out as a method to dodge seller fees; I think now, the more nefarious twist is that if you file your dispute the wrong way, you can forfeit shipping fees and only get back to what went towards the item. I believe I’ve seen at least one other poster here have this happen to them, so it’s pretty good to policy to just outright avoid listings structured this way.

    Also looks like negative reviews started hitting this month (for WENQUIANG201688). All 4 were the same item (G1 re-issue of tapes) sent a different item.

    In my opinion you have to be careful of a seller like that, however he already has four negative feedbacks from yesterday. As it happened to me with the two sellers I reported in a previous post, these too were very reliable and from one day to the next they served the Transformers and then started to receive negative feedback for products never received and wrong shipping code. However, this is my personal experience and my personal opinion.

    Besides the tapes from what I've been reading on the Quietus thread,that seller is "Supposedly" mixing up ppls orders and sending out other (cheap) Transformers instead of Quietus lol SmH. Ive been keeping an eye on that sellers item and the prices seem about right to retail yesterday but just now I see all the prices are ridiculously low! Sign me up for a $50 FT Spoiler or a TE-01 for $55! What.!? I can get a XTB Stunticons limp for $30.!???

    In theory small is just a name (you need dimensions and weight) in real life odds are good you got scammed.
