    So weihaike1982 on eBay definitely has gone rogue at this point. Kind of hilarious how quickly that whole thing happened too. 20% off sale one day on items already too cheap to be trusted, then the negative feedback rolls in and they delist all their items. Now their feedback is set private. Whole thing took like 3-4 days, tops.

    nothing was delivered yesterday. I will likely know the result of this order today.

    True Ebay protects you, but if this continues to happen and you order frequently you put your Ebay and Paypal account in jeopardy of getting banned. I lost my Paypal account because of these China scammers and can't get it back (I spent hours trying).

    I noticed last night that mascotzone just wiped out their store. Been buying from them for a while no problems. Still have one item shipped left out there. Is this normal? They are still up and not private, just empty. Mascot home which looks related is still up.

    Sometimes they do clear out their stores for a day or two and then relist it all. Cleaning house and fixing prices, etc. Many sellers will do this once or twice a year it seems.

    Yeah, totally normal. Nothing to worry about unless it doesn't come back in a week or two (yes, I've seen it take that long).

    You're most welcome.

    Also note that many Chinese sellers wipe the store during holidays where they aren't shipping like CNY, fall festival, etc. I've seen those gaps last several weeks or more.

    I'm pretty sure they've gone rogue. $73 for MP44 KO is too good to be true. BUT I'll be able to tell you for sure in a few weeks, since I went ahead and took a chance and ordered from them. LOL.

    Heya all. Dealing with dongxia126 for the first time. Feedback is less than 1K, but seems pretty good for a lower volume feedback seller at least right now. Has anyone else dealt with them before?

    Hi yes I would also like to know of any experience for dongxia126 i have checked his store out a fair bit since he opened in 2018 but just went through the good and bad sellers on 1st page and his name didn't come up?
    It's just I'm considering parting with rather large sim of cash for something in his shop that I will need to apply for PayPal credit for it slowly pay it back so really want to get this right.
    Personally I switched over to AliExpress these last few years due to scamming so much on Ebay my sister just tried to get me something for my birthday transformer off a UK Ebay site and has been scammed so now has to waste her time disputing it.

    One more thing do you have to use PayPal credit on Ebay only or could I use it on other websites like say Show z store as well?

    Hi
    I’m a Transformer collector in the Uk. Anyone used Dajing Hunte (749) or Dongxia126 ?
    Both there prices for Fanstoys Astrotrain is really really cheap. Has anyone used these sellors before? hope you don’t mind me asking?

    I usually only use mascotzone or mr.brian2009 , they are very good.

    I bought the same Astrotrain over the weekend when eBay had the 5% bucks offer going on. I checked today and mine is now showing in transit. I'll try to keep updates here in case it helps, but I'd like to know if anyone else has used 126 as well.

    I had a good experience with him getting an "Ancient Leader Scorn" with no problems a few months ago.

    Correction: something is in transit. Until it actually arrives it will be a mystery whether it is a collectible toy or a $200+ bag of plastic beads. Thus is the nature of the scam game...

    Yep.. guang1121 def went rogue. No items now, Previously searched him up specifically on 2k5 and others were saying they were getting stuff from him. Since 2016, sad. Probably got desperate b/c of corona. If I hit return item since its still on the paid status, how long will it take to get a refund? Or should I dispute through PP since I paid with them.
