    So upset. I opened a dispute with Paypal,but it was denied due to the 180 days, I talked with ebay customer service, but they can't do anything since 30 days have passed, so the I called my bank trying to do a chargeback on card and they couldn't help since its passed 60 days. I tried contacting the seller, but hasn't responded. Bank said to make a police report so that's what I'm planning to do next.

    sucks to hear that man. but that is why i would never preorder a big ticket item from anyone but a reputable source. especially something that was super rare like this. that just seemed too risky.

    how much did you pay for that unicron? was it all in full or just a deposit? if he is stateside the value of it is definitely a felony in most states.

    you could also get them on wire fraud as well since you paid with a card or check.

    same. Almost got ripped off on a wfc bumblebee and negative reviews regarding the seller popped up and was able to cancel the order in time.

    I paid the full amount up front. I wish I would've just waited to see if online stores would sell it.

    I think you might be able to take them to small claims court. Depending on what you paid.

    725 positive and no negative. I found 1 response to feedback he left for another buyer. The buyer replied "Too bad you didn't send the item and relieved it to get more. Thanks for screwing me over." Don't understand why he didn't leave him negative feedback.

    if the fleabay purchase was just like any other one. they should have sent you their contact info whenever you completed the sale.

    just look at the city, state and go from there.

    Weird that someone would destroy their feedback after all that. Can you tell if he had any other unicron listings previously?

    No, but he left positive feedback for supposedly 12 other Unicrons he sold to other buyers. He has nothing for sale right now and no feedback from these other 12 guys.

    shit like this happens all the time for way less than this.

    let's just say for arguments sake this guy sold 12 for cost which is 550 or whatever. that is over 6gs of cash.

    so he has 6600 set aside with good intentions and all that sweet stuff. then brovid hits or he just has hard times and needs cash. he has a nice little chunk from that upfront money. it makes sense and how things could have easily have gone south.

    or he up and dies who really knows. but the bottom line is. if he is here in the states you can totally be prosecuted.

    I haven’t read all your posts related to this so apologies if it’s irrelevant but both Visa and MasterCard have special rules about chargebacks for pre-ordering items well in advance of anticipated fulfilment. I discovered this when an Australia retailer, Premium Collectables, went awol with a bunch of customers pre-order cash. Front line bank staff usually don’t know about these charge back reason codes so it’s worthwhile being persistent, assuming this applies to you. In my case, I got all my money back but I know others who paid cash via bank transfers weren’t so lucky.

    Have a read here: Credit Card Dispute (extended pre-order) time limits

    Yes, I would be wary of ANY preorders outside of eBay's allowed 30-day window. There's not much I agree with when it comes to eBay policies, but this is a good one.

    Filed a police report today. Gave officer all the emails regarding the case. Showed her the Hasbro Pulse page that states its availability being on 4\22, and how ebay and PayPals protection windows should start at that date. Wish me luck! I'm gonna need it.

    I'm like, so disappointed that this this guy won't scale right with the other WFC toys. In my based opinion they should have just invented a new size class: MOON CLASS
