I bought a part jungle explorer outfit last week, it hasn't arrived yet, and the estimated delivery is the end of this month - a month after I won the auction.

I am a little perplexed as to the delay.

Have you also bought something that has not arrived?

Hi all
Yes I won something coming up to 4 weeks ago now, and I have been very polite to this seller asking about the delivery, the communication is and was no forth coming, as when I won it i asked if I could have a delivery date as it was a present for some one, and yesterday I got replies, very rude and and swearing at me!!
I reported him to ebay and they will be taking measures regarding him, to which I don't know what, but it will look like I won't be getting the item and will have to open a case to get my money back!

There is no need for this seller to be rude or swear in the messages not called for at all

Just be a tad weary if you use this chap

Cheers
PJ

Oh dear, it sounds like I had better start looking for another Jungle Explorer outfit!

It is a shame if the bloke is a shyster, as the item I bought was good value. In hindsight the price may have been low if potential bidders were put off by his past history.

I don't ever look at the feedback when buying, maybe I should start.

I normally look at the feedback, but was doing via my mobile and looking at feedback on it is not always that good!
I must admit all the times I have used ebay this has been the first time this has happened, but of course it has taught me a lesson, lets hope we both get our items

Think I may start using the forum to buy and sell in the future at least I will know its coming from a good home

I have had similar experience's PJ, these people are a nightmare to deal with, first off, if they are quick enough to take your money, then imo any item you have brought from them should be posted out straight away, after all you didn't make him/her wait for payment ?

I learned from my pal Ade, always look at feedback score first, Personally I do not usually buy if their score drops below 90, I know some guys will not even go that low

Well as I said I think i'll start making sure I check out the forum first before i buy anything in the future and also make sure i double check the feedback, but on the plus side though, I won 4 nude VAMS on Monday and they have just arrived  Very Happy   Very Happy 

1 x Flock painted face
1 x Eagle Eye (non BP(
x2 PH, Brown hair and a black hair

They could do with a clean and the flock needs redoing but they are fab and only cost me £20.00 very happy  Very Happy   Very Happy

fantastic news PJ!, I always clean my heads by using a small plastic tub with a lid, filled with washing up liquid and warm water, i pop the heads in give it a shake, then leave them over night. In the morning I then use a soft toothbrush to lightly clean them. Them come up a treat  cheers

True, think i'll start to save my pennies now though for AM Day, which I am well looking forward to, as I need a few bits on a custom uniform I'm doing for the Middlesex Regiment, so far i have the home service helmet, and going to make my own uni, fingers crossed  Shocked

I think we need to start a new thread nearer the time with our mug shots and names on the forum as well, what do you think, it could be a tad scary looking at my mug shot  lol!   lol!
