    Glad you gotten yours.

    These guys are being termed as "sketchy" on the Chinese eBay Sellers thread so you definitely wanna add a little dose of extra caution when dealing with them.

    We will know soon enough if they're turning rogue, especially if these guys start clocking more negative feedbacks.

    I got mine from him. According to tracking he has entered the country. Time to send out the seekers.

    This is actually part of a cycle. A store will build up feedback, so is now worth money to sell. The store is sold to a scammer, who then goes in for the scammer kill. The original store owner then starts from scratch to build up a new store, or is just moving in to another business. Some of these it doesn't involve a sale of the store, just a person who goes through the cycle of reputable store, major scam, then restart.

    I actually ordered a Nemesis Prime from him as well, which is still incoming. Worrisome, as there have been two more negative feedbacks added now, also saying receiving stickers instead of the toy.

    That is who I ordered from as well. At the time, the only negative feedback was for long ship time and the item having too tight joints. Unfortunately it looks like we may have purchased from a store that just switched to scamming. An unfortunate risk in this hobby. My shipment is in the US now, I'm hoping it will be delivered sometime next week. I will take a video when I open the package. This is disappointing, but oh well. At least I'm forewarned. Now I need to consider if I want to try another attempt and how much I'm willing to pay.

    Yep I am here too, waiting for the scam to drop. If it is it'll be a sign for me to take a pause in collecting. Which I was thinking about doing anyway.

    Looks like three recent negative feedbacks with people just getting stickers. Is it really worth it for these people to buy an eBay account that took a lot of time and work to establish themselves only to scam a few people and get caught?

    I don't understand the reasoning either. Seems to me like too much effort.

    Keep in mind even though we will get our money back from eBay, it is harder for eBay to get their money back from some of these scammers. The idea is to take advantage of long shipping times, and the fact established stores can get their money once an item ships rather than when it is delivered. Once the money is freed up, pull it out and close connections to those accounts. By the time packages arrive to notify eBay of the scam the money is long gone from the accounts. The amount of money is relatively small for eBay, and it is difficult to pursue smaller criminal issues for a foreign company within some countries.

    Yes but in this case the seller had 4 negative reviews out of nearly 500 in the last 12 months. It is more likely there was an honest screw up in their ordering system than it is they are deliberately scamming buyers. Most ebay scammers do short cons and cut bait before the negative feedback can give them away. Properly servicing 490 buyers to scam a few people with sticker sheets seems highly ineffective.

    Same boat I'm in too - it appears to be in the U.S., guess I'll find out soon if I was screwed.

    Nah, this happens with Chinese eBay sellers from time to time - perfect feedback for ages, then they suddenly go rogue and make off with as much money as possible.

    It's a bummer for me, since I ordered 2 Nemesis Primes from them, but that's likely the situation at this point. Just gotta wait to see what they sent before I request a refund from eBay.
