Hello, My name is Scott and I haven't been a member here long.
I have been collecting Star Wars toys for some time now and have recently made the jump to Props and Costumes. As I'm sure a lot of you did.
I've made a ESB Vader so far and wanted an ESB Fett.
I'd been looking on ebay at parts when a friend suggested the TDH.
Didn't even know it existed.
I applied for membership and was accepted.
When I logged on for the first time I was Thrilled!
All the info I could ever want or need was right here!
Looking at the Suits people had made, I knew I came to the right place.
I was eager to start. Trolling the Cargo Hold for Pieces to start my build.
But I keep running into a snag.
Everyone ONLY takes PAYPAL.
I was scammed out of over $1500 by a guy overseas and paypal was NO Help. Even had the tracking # but since it got held up in Customs for 30 days they ruled in his favor. Then they conveniently had Technical Difficulties with there appeals page for 35 days after the ruling so I couldn't appeal it.
When It finally worked, they said it was too late.
So I lost my $1500, the Extra shipping to get a Global tracking # and my Stormtrooper armor that I hated to sell anyway.
Since then, I will not use paypal.
I understand why people use paypal because it is fast and Convenient.
But I don't understand ONLY using paypal.
But this isn't a Complaining post.
Just a Frustration post.
I love it here and will stay a member of this Wonderful Forum!
But unfortunately , it looks like I'm stuck buying my parts off ebay.
Or do you think I'm giving up too soon?
Like I said I'm not Complaining, I totally understand why people like paypal.
I'm just frustrated that I can't purchase parts because paypal did me wrong and I will no longer give them any of my money.
Thanks for listening.
