    Here's an example of a seller I would definitely stay away from:



    Some of you smart cookies from the RPF may know this seller...

    Guys! Somebody needs to body slam this guys shoty quality and keep others from getting burned! Otherwise, what's the point of learinging the lesson? To just keep learning it over and over and over again? Don't worry about the negative feedback thing, it doesn't mean squat! For Instance, a couple of weeks ago I won an auction for a low number 12" HELLBOY action figure from SideShow Collectibles for $29.00 bucks, not bad since they dont make them any more and they usually go for double that! But, then the Seller ( pinkeeleo ) wants to charge me $18.00 dollars to ship it from NY to WI, COME ON! This thing doesn't even weigh a pound! What a friggin joke! So I told the seller he was trying to gough on the shpping end of things, because the figure went for alot less than they anticipated! So they leave me negative feedback, call me a deadbeat and that I should be blacklisted! So I look at the seller's feedback history and the next transaction they sold to another buyer got negative feedback and now it says that seller isn't even a user anymore. This all just happened in the last two weeks. So my point is, someone goes to look at my feedback and it's spotless and everbody else is singing my praises, then you see this one blemish, who care's! It's the other guy that looks like an idiot that's smokin' crack!!!

    YOU GOTTA GO AHEAD AND DO WHAT YOU CAN TO, BRING THIS GUY DOWN!!!

    True. I'll glady take a hit to my feedback to leave a rotten seller a negative. In fact I have and yes they do leave retaliatory feedback.

    When I search for an item to buy (not necessarily Fett-related), and several sellers offer that item for the same price, I use feedback as a way to measure a seller's credibility. . .
    And I usually trust 100% sellers first (so that I don't have to read the others), so it helps to keep that percentage high...especially if you're selling on eBay as a business.
    Oh, I completely agree with you on those points. I will look at the feedback rating of a seller before I buy something, and if it doesn't give me a "warm fuzzy", then I'll pass on the auction.
    But say it's something I want, and they have a 98.3% instead of 100%, I'll probably still bid. The total number of transactions figures into this too.

    I know it seems that neagtive feedback means very little. But much like Batninja, I use rank sellers based off of that. And when you are like me, and hardly use ebay at all, one negative would KILL ME. That's why I try to warn people here. Besides, Ebay for some strange reason wouldn't let me leave feedback on amiadfilter (I gave him a month to send the stuff), so after a month, it pretty much expired, and acted like it never existed.

    I can see your point when you don't have a ton of feedback. A negative would hurt.

    I think it's 45 days. After that you can't leave feedback.

    I wish I had read this post a few months ago before buying a bucket from Amiadfilter. This was my first bucket purchase and I didn't really have anything to compare the quality to, but it did seem rather sloppily made and not very good quality (very thin). Not to mention the jackass took like three and a half weeks to ship it to me. I had to send several nasty e-mails to him and he finally mailed it. I left negative feedback for the delay in shipping.

    I was thinking about laying another layer of fiberglass resin on the inside of the bucket and reinforce with fiberglass sheeting - anyone had success with this type of modification for reinforcement and is it a good idea?

    Wow, I just bought a bucket from this guy... I wish I would have known before hand... it turned out pretty good... I'm going to have to do ALOT of sanding however.

    And the inside needs ALOT of work.

    Thank fully he sent it to me quickly, but the resin parts he sent are pretty crappy, I'll need to purchase those again.

    My biggest complaint was that his ebay auction said no sanding needed, but it's going to take alot of work!

    The resin RF posts he supplies have been recasted from my aluminum ones. I contacted him a couple of times to stop this practice but now he just mentions in his auctions that the post doesn't come with the kit, but he supplies it anyways.
    I believe Karma will get this guy one day.

    I bought a helmet from him about a month ago and as soon as I opened the box, I requested a refund through Paypal and eBay. He responded back that he wouldn't send a refund until he received his helmet back, so I threatened him with selling me an item that wasn't as pictured (He's now selling a (MS bucket with the seperate keyholes for the back). Basically, we all could get refunds and shut him down for selling non-pictured items pretty quickly. I got my money back ASAP and now I have the worst bucket I've ever seen. If it's not too late, send requests through Paypal and you can get your money back for an item that wasn't pictured. Maybe, if we all work together, we can put him out of business for good. Karma is catching up to him.

    I'm going to leave him feedback at the last possible minute, he's a known retliator. I have reported him to the proper people at Ebay and they are currently resolving several cases against him.

    I'm not sure I could accuse him of not having the pictured item... it looks the same, except for the extra fiberglass on the bottom of the helmet.

    I'll attach a pic of my helmet and link the auction, since it's over now.



    and here's the auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...2965&rd=1&rd=1

    GeekPastor, actually that is NOT the helmet pictured in the auction. In the auction, it was a Mystery Helmet with the attached ear cap, not the MS recast that you received. The item description states "This helmet requires very little sanding and absolutely no removal of unsightly seams. Who knows what you'll get from someone else!" - I would beg to differ otherwise. Be sure to complain about every imperfection in the helmet and list the reasons why this product is not the one pictured. You have every right to submit an Item Not Received or Significantly Not As Described, that's how I was able to get my refund. Do not let this guy tell you otherwise, he'll try to steal your money for sure.

    BTW, check his feedback. Who cares if he retaliates against me? I feel much better now. Who wants to go next? At this rate, we should be able to shut him down.

    Leave negative feedback and don't forget to demand a refund by going through Paypal and eBay first.

    I just sent him a message to allow him to respond (like the ebay rules say to do)

    But it looks like I'm back on the hunt for a helmet, and since I am on a time crunch and have a deadline... does anyone want to sell a painted ESB helmet?

    I've been hearing people complain about him for over a year now, if those guys left NEG. feedback as they should have in the begining, we still would'ent be talking about this unfortunately.
