Stay away from this ebay buyer "tomtimtone" !!
He bought a MOC Plastirama Condor with hard clamshell case off of me for $11.00 plus s/h and got the item just over a day later after I shipped it to him and opens a claim as item not as described. He has yet to open the box it was mailed in because he hears rattling inside the box and says there is no way it is MOC and wants full refund now. What an idiot! I told him vintage carded figures and their gear were never tied down or mounted in form fitting holders like they are now and of course they will rattle around in the bubble, they did when they were brand new in stores back in the 80's! He refuses to open the box anyhow saying there is absolutely no way this item is MOC.
I just got off the phone with ebay support and she says from the looks of the emails between us, they decided they didn't want the item somewhere between paying for it and receiving it because they refuse to open the mailing box even though they clearly stated in the 1st message on the opened claim that they never opened the box and nothing is wrong with the box, just rattling from inside it
**EDIT** I just was notified that ebay refunded him the purchase price plus s/h from my account even though he refused to open the box AND refused to ship it back with tracking (ebay requirement when returning item for refund) so now I'm out the item, sale price plus the shipping I paid to get screwed by the buyer and ebay! I cancelled all of my ebay listings and sent them a nasty little message about why I am no longer selling on ebay after getting screwed by them on this. I will be selling through the 'tank from now on.
Rest in peace my son, Aaron Michael. You will always be in our hearts and prayers. 9/13/2012

Just a question for the mods here, why are all the bad sellers/buyers not consolidated into the first post like TFW2005, it would make blocking these fools a lot easier.

I admit, this is partially my fault in that a couple of threads are up on forums warning people about this seller and I didn't check him out beyond his eBay feedback before we clicked buy it now, but currently in the middle of a somewhat difficult situation with him.
I recently went to buy two Encore Convoys from him (one for a wedding cake topper and one to put away for when kids come along): Takara Transformers G1 Encore 01 Optimus Prime Convoy New SEALED Takara Japan | eBay .
At $50USD+$50USD shipping each (so $100USD total shipping), there seemed to be a question mark over shipping, but I thought that if there was a significant overing, that the seller would do the decent thing. As the seller required immediate payment and I was broke at the time, the missus put it through on her account.
Anyway both Encores arrived today and the first sign that something wasn't right was the shipping. The seller paid 99.80 for shipping, but it was 99.80RMY- roughly $30USD (it seems to fluctuate slightly above and below the $30USD mark according to OzForex - Australian Forex - International Money Transfers ). In other words, the seller decided that his definition of a "reasonable handling fee" was $70USD.
Of course the biggest "surprise" came when I opened the box. While one of them was fine, the second one was anything but. I could describe the damage, but I figure it's best to go by the old adage "a picture says a thousand words", and simply link you to this:
Despite only having an issue with one of the Encore Convoys, the seller insists on me sending both of them back. Furthermore the seller expects me to pay the international shipping to return the item when it was their mistake. I've made my position clear to the seller, that I will only agree to a return and refund if the seller refunds the entirety of the outrageous "handling charge", half of the actual original shipping costs, covers all of the return shipping costs and refunds the actual cost of the damaged Encore Convoy. Yet the seller just keeps repeating the same message of "Send back both item for full refund. Thanks !" I should point out here that the seller has clearly indicated in previous messages that their definition of "full refund" doesn't include the return shipping costs.
UPDATE: Seller refused to budge and claims he's merely adhering to eBay policies - despite the fact that in addition to charging unreasonable handling charges, ignoring the fact that eBay only requires me to send back the items which are damaged and the fact that what he's done here is classic toy aisle trolling (does anyone even remotely believe that came out of Takara's factory like that).
In short, deal with this disreputable, faceless con artist at your own peril.

dalcorion don't sell to this person, he bought a ultimate ss off me back I. January and then a week before the 60 day period before I could leave a feedback or even look at the item anymore he closes the case in his favor, it was an international item and had tracking on it pisses me off to no end how people screw you over like that I know he received it can't track international once it leaves US unless you get it express and that costs $50 for that shipping option FML =(

Watch out for "grock9412". I would put him on my block list if I were you. He claims he receives damaged goods. He opened a claim before even sending one single message to discuss. The stuff I sent him was described perfectly and says the exact items he was wanting from the lot were the only things damaged. Ridiculous. I did a general web search for his ebay user name and it looks like he did the same thing to several other people and of course his feedback is set to private. Don't get abused by him. It looks like he is a member here and has screwed people over here as well. His name is Gordon Gaddis if that is his real name. He may have different eBay IDs.

I won three bids from urban-tactics and he/they refunded my money and shut down all other auctions. The reason for the refund is they claim they have received too much harassment. I never harassed anybody. I won 3 auctions at awesome prices. A little research and it seems like they've done this before because they weren't happy with the final bid price. Bad business man. The background used with two of the pictures reminds me of some custom pics I've seen here. I'm going to do some more investigating.
