    God damn, I bought something from him a couple of weeks ago. At the time he had good feedback here.

    Ah crap, I just bought something from him a few days ago. Does anyone know the best process for handling this? Do I go through ebay or paypal?

    Personally, I'll probably just wait until after the delivery window. I'm hoping it's just a COVID delay, he does still have more positive than negative in the last month.

    I see they have nothing for sale now either. Ok, scammer confirmed.

    So, how can I claim scammer with ebay now? They just keep telling me to wait until the delivery window is over.

    I think you're better off going through Paypal, just follow the directions at the bottom of CM's first post here. China Ebay Seller Check - New-comers READ FIRST POST!! I think you still might have to wait for estimated delivery time though cause they don't really speed it up even when it's a known scammer. I had to sit around for a month and then one guy tried to fight the claim. I'd take screen caps of all the feedback and relevant info now in case it all goes private or you need to send anything to Paypal later. I've always gotten my money back in the end though.

    Hoodlum Articulated Shoulder replacements - £11

    Have a few excess of these made up at the minute so reducing the price for the weekend. These allow hoodlum to not look like he's impersonating ultra Magnus and bring his arms down to the correct height. They still retain all articulation and he can still transform. This works by adding in an extra hinge into the shoulder connector

    I can confirm that he is, indeed, a scammer. He sent me a sponge instead of Roadking and Spoiler.

    Thanks. Been eyeing for a while. Ordered a set. Hoodlum is by far my most modded MP figure even before this :D

    News update of my order.
    The guy i've ordered hoodlum on e-bay is a scammer.
    Now i have to wait a whole month first and then issue to get my money back.
    80 bucks for hoodlum these days is farfetched.

    So there's a tracking number active while they move the money out of their account.

    Ah man that bites. Just another reason why I don't fool with chinese sellers. But, I guess if you really want the figure and it's not anywhere else, that's your only option.
