PostSubject: Watch Out for Ebay Seller ALWAYSLOOKING4MORETOYS   Wed Sep 21, 2011 3:54 pm

More than one month ago I bought a MIB Trilogo Ewok Village from ebay seller alwayslooking4moretoys. Sofar the package has not arrived, though the seller claims he has sent it.

Today Emiel (thx man!) found out that the same seller is offering another MIB Ewok Village on ebay.

Coincidence?

Read further and decide for yourself.

This is the letter I wrote to him accompanying a paypal claim.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi Andy / alwayslooking4moretoys

Let me summarize: I paid you 390 GBP on August 12th for a vintage Star Wars Trilogo Ewok Village Mint in Box. The item was formely advertised on ebay (objectnummer: 140585024727. Seller:alwayslooking4moretoys) but the auction was ended beforehand though I had placed a bid. After I contacted you to express my disappointment about this, you offered me the opportunity to make a private deal, and as said we agreed 390 GBP.

Unfortunately the item has not arrived yet, despite your claim to have posted it. Even more - totally against my wish - you choose to send such an expensive item with untrackable post, so it hard to verify the current whereabouts of the item.

At this very moment you are offering another Trilogo Ewok Village (ebay object number 140609295218). At first glance that seems odd as Trilogo Ewok Villages are very rare items which hardly show up on ebay. But maybe you are a lucky guy and owned two of these great items.

Well let’s hope my item arrives soon, maybe I am just a bit impatient.

Regards,

Marco

"One more thing..."

The black tape on one side of the box has the same length and position as on the box which I bought from you. (compare the pics in 140585024727 and 140609295218).
Can you explain this please?



Trilogo Ewok Village Ebay auction 140585024727, ended August 7th, prematurely

Trilogo Ewok Village Ebay objectno. 140609295218, listed Sept 20th




Ebay objectno. 140585024727, ended August 7th, prematurely


Ebay objectno. 140585024727, ended August 7th, prematurely


Ebay objectno. 140609295218, listed Sept 20th


Ebay objectno. 140609295218, listed Sept 20th




EDIT:
Added links to the ebay auctions. I am aware this is against the outing rule, but this is a special case, as we are dealing with an dishonest seller.
Besides in legal terms I am still the owner of the Trilogo Ewok Village which has been relisted on ebay now, so technically this auction is illegal as I did not give permission for it.

Marco, like me and Paul said in chat the other night, something sounds fishy about all that. Now that he actually put it back up for sale again using the same pix, you know that guy never sent it now. Hope you are still able to get your cash back, mate and neg the hell out him.

YES!!!!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Only two days after submitting a paypal claim, all my money was refunded!!

Thanks for all your support guys!!!

Meanwhile I also had some email communication with the seller today. I don’t know about you but to me he is a very dishonest person with whom I will never deal again. Read and decide for yourself.

And please go ahead if you want to bid on that Trilogo Ewok Village, it is not mine anymore. Very Happy

Glad to see you are getting your cash back Marco.

Long story short is the seller is a douche bag.

Marco - That's some underhanded shit. What a scumbag. Nothing pisses me off more than people who purposely try to rip someone off and then plead ignorance about pay pal transfers or whatever. Or in his case whining to you that he needs the money. Like that makes it right?? Damn right he needs the money - to pay you back for something he never intended to ship.

I swear, sometimes I feel like people who are selling shit must think us SW collectors are all idiots and will fall for their scams. Little do they now we are some of the sharpest tools in the shed (with a few exceptions, lol).

But seriously - glad you got your money back and thanks for getting this turds name out in the open as being a piece of poodoo (to be polite).

I think getting your money back is the best outcome. As they appear to be a dishonest seller, the item would probably turn out to be not as described! I had this once with a mib landspeeder. The guy reckon he had sent it and when I queried where it was, he said he was miffed at having to send me another! It then turned up and wasn't as described. These wrong uns need outing! Good work.

Hi Marco, sad story but I am glad to read you have received the money back.

I just wish some how we all could place a bad seller on a bad list on ebay so if we bid on them by mistake then we get a warning about we are sure about bidding.

Also so we don't have to write all the bad sellers down on paper, it is beginning to be a long list.

I have asked ebay about it, but I have never heard from them Evil or Very Mad

Don't worry too much Marco, I haven't actively followed the Trilogo Ewok village for long but I have seen enough in the past few months to make my mind up on their rarity.

A nice MIB one just ended in fact - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/STAR-WARS-VINTAGE-RARE-COMPLETE-EWOK-VILLAGE-RTOJ-/370543584383?pt=UK_ToysGames_ActionFigures_ActionFigures_JN&hash=item56461e647f&autorefresh=true#ht_500wt_1413

No bids.

Hey guys,

Thank you for your support. I lost a trilogo Ewok Village, but at least I got my money back. Very Happy

And after reading Joe's post, maybe I don't have to wait that long till another will appear.

I added some extra paypal correspondence to make clear that the seller was dishonest IMO, but decide for yourself. Most strikingly he asks me to inform him when the Ewok Village will arrive. On the same day however, he relisted the item on ebay, w/o telling me. scratch








Out last correspondence was less friendly somehow.Very Happy.








Pleasant and honest gentleman to do business with?....judge for yourself!

I couldn't help quoting Master Yoda. Very Happy

Remember this thread?

This sad story has a happy end after all. Very Happy

Thanks to Mark (DarthStanley) who offered me a different Trilogo Ewok Village after reading this thread and deciding to shift his focus somewhat.

It arrived today in a very carefully packed, almost bombshell proof package.

No need to tell you guys, I am totally over the moon about it.

Mark: It was a great thing that you helped me with this, thank you buddy! I appreciate this very much!!! Very Happy
