    Shoot, what do I do? The estimated delivery date isn’t for awhile, but clearly this is gonna go south.

    Do I have to wait until delivery date or attempt to message the scammer first?

    This is the first time this has happened to me.

    I used the chat on ebay and told them about all the negative feedback and that the seller closed his store and the amount of time that I had waited, they opened a claim and gave the seller 3 days to answer and he did not and I am issued a refund

    Thanks for the info, I'm looking for a reliable seller for KO for my kid, don't want to give him an original until I can see that he will take care of them

    Sorry to keep spamming the thread but another reply from dajing-hunte:

    We contact the post office to inquire about the reason, please be patient, if you cannot receive the item, we will give you a full refund, please rest assured. Thank you!

    Bare in mind, I asked him what tracking app he was using for the item, but he says the same thing about post office, although the full refund is funny seeing as the one delivered to the wrong place was on Monday! As noted by someone else he now has zero items for sale.. I'm going to ask ebay to step in but my guess is they will just do the same as last time and not bother. Neither item delivered still to me still.

    Hope no one else has items from this guy supposedly out there as it'll no doubt allow ebay to side step things.

    Ebay strikes again - escalated my case vs dajing-hunte as i am concerned he's a scammer. They closed it about 20mins later, not covered by money back guarantee. Fucks sake
    They will no doubt do the same with the other one too.

    Help me Paypal, you're my only hope :-/

    Least you can make it amusing :D  did you get a refund off ebay? I saw one of the negative feedbacks he got was someone saying just like me, they wouldn't refund which is ridiculous really considering all the evidence

    Only just started the refund process, so no results yet. However, I will say that when I gave the mysterious padded envelope an experimental squeeze and was met with a dog-toy squeak, I genuinely burst out laughing.

    Best of luck, maybe now all the negatives are there ebay will side with you. To be fair if I had that and heard it squeak I don't know if I'd laugh or swear :D

    cowcowtoy is legitimate. Ordered the Transformers vs Street Fighter sets from them on 5/31 and they came in last week. Packing, shipping speed, and price were good.

    Some good news - ebay is reviewing my case vs dajing-hunte for the Sheridan listing. I had an email from customer services saying they have seen the item has been delivered but no destination address is provided so they have contacted the seller stating he must provide this info by 23rd or they will refund me.

    Unfortunately it was a not monitored email address so I can't ask why they threw out my other case against him with zero reason why.

    Also just got my escalated claim vs tj_dynng-8 from paypal decided in my favour of a refund within minutes of me escalating it. Thank you Paypal!

    This is great news! I am genuinely happy to see this was resolved for you. I hated to see you panic, especially after I assured you in the other thread that this seller was legit and not to worry.

    Mine arrived Saturday, and I really did get Fanstoys Hunk! ... NOT. He sent me some Optimus Prime instructions in a padded envelope.

    I recorded myself opening it, and sent him a message I did not receive the correct item. As expected no response. I'll allow him until tomorrow to respond, then open a case in the resolution center.

    I don't know who tj_dynng-8 is blowing over at ebay, but ebay declined my case against this scammer!
    I cannot believe the audacity of ebay to allow this crap!
    I would really be pissed if it wasn't for Paypal actually doing the right thing and refunding me.
    I am seriously considering never using ebay ever again!

    This guy turned scammer - his shop disappeared after selling various different items cheaply.

    Edit sorry in regards to : dajing-hunte
