    Anything can happen but it is very hard to image why baba will go rogue given the reputation he has built over the years. If I were him, I would stay in the business knowing that I have tons of buyers waiting to buy from me.

    I filed my claim with Paypal a couple of days ago and got my refund already. Probably going to stick with the usual merchants from now on...

    got a reply from whzjen1976-9 ... things not looking good.

    New message from: whzhen1976-9 [​IMG](270[​IMG])


    I received your letter and asked the post office immediately. The item was detained because it contained metal. But please don't worry, you'll be able to track it soon. The post office man told me: "the customs are always strict for a few days and relax for a few days.". I hope you understand!

    How are sellers determined to be legit? It sounds like the seller being discussed above is actually going rogue...

    At the time when they are listed other members on here have had positive and good transactions with them. Later on they can become scammers or go rogue

    Shouldn't that be the criteria for GOOD sellers? What makes a seller good then?

    Legit sounds like they are a person who is actually known in the community (either by manufactures, distributors or fans) somehow, that can be spoken for on a more personal level... Not just another faceless seller.

    this message from yumyumprime also showed up on my profile today

    YumYumPrime Can you help me to post? I am still unable to post as new user. Thank you
    * whzhen1976-9 is trying to delay your claim to paypal so he can have enough time to withdraw the money that he took from paypal.
    As I mentions before hxli7777_5 and whzhen1976-9 are the same guy named (郭瑶 in Chinese) Kwok Yiu
    People should start to file to ebay or paypal as soon as possible to stop this scammer. *

    So I was going to open a Paypal claim for my 2 packages from hxli7777_5, then this morning I see they hit Chicago ISC Customs last night. I'm still thinking it's a scam - either package will never move from the facility or or wrong item in the package as other feedback claims. Should I wait a few days to see if there is movement, or proceed and file a claim? I'm thinking I could inform Paypal that I believe it is a scam and if during the 10 day window the package arrives and is legit I can cancel the claim. If not legit then I shorten the wait time.

    I placed an order the other day from TOYNK - I'll update at the completion of the transaction. This seller is based in the US, by the way-

    based on feedback from @YumYumPrime and others hxli7777_5 and whzhen1976-9 are going on the bad seller's list.

    i filed a dispute with paypal today for whzhen1976-9

    its kinda funny, because ive now been scammed 5 times in the past year - 3 times in a row last year within a 3 week window, and these 2 within a 2 week window. all the sellers had between 99-100% feedback at the time of purchase and always had a rating well over 100.
    ive done countless purchases with chinese sellers and it seems like it comes in these heavy waves. i bet a lot of the scammers do it with multiple accounts and do it at the same time with all their accounts.

    Alright, another update on my Grassor/Guttur from hxli7777_5. Both packages arrived at ISC in Chicago, and one has actually departed with estimated delivery 6/13. The other says processed through but not departed with same estimated delivery. So it appears at this point I will actually receive packages, but the kicker is on both the package type is first class/small packets. No way that should apply to the big dino boxes, first class is limited to smaller dimensions and under 1lb. Fuck.

    Any advice? My plan I suppose would be to video record the packages on my porch, bringing them inside and immediately opening while video documenting.

    well fuckitty fuck....I ordered a primorion from that guy and at the time he had 0 negative feedback and 2 nuetral. I thought I was golden....now it seems he may have gone rogue. Just our luck eh. Well I guess I will wait and see if anything happens....his tracking number is not showing anything except for the fact that a number was created. Been that way for 5-6 days now. I sent him a message asking about that. I guess I too could use some advice, should I wait (and if so, how long?) or should I contact paypal and well...I guess I aint sure what I would have them do at this point.

    Advice?

    I would suggest to call paypal as soon as possible to report this seller so paypal can start the investigation and freeze his account. If your package tracking status is showing incomplete address and returned to sender, you can called ebay. Ebay will start the investigation right away and you don't need to wait for the shipping period ended to start the case. I have opened the cases on ebay and ebay said it will take a week to investigate and I should be able to get the refund in 8 days.

    You have whzhen1976-9 on both the good and bad seller list, when it seems as though they should be only on the bad.

    I had an issue with shipping (supposedly the address on the shipment was incorrect and my item is being sent back). I contacted hxli7777_5 and they said to wait for them to get info on the shipment. I opened a case on PayPal and got my refund from them rather quickly.
