| p.1 #10 · Be wary of seller "Kaiku" |
So, what's the best method to warn everyone about my seller? It's been 8 days since I paid. No tracking number. No communication for 7 days. Just empty promises.
The seller is Kaiku. I had a "Wanted" thread looking for a 28mm 2.8 IS. He contacted me on Feb 18, 2014, and told me he had one like new for $300 including shipping and paypal. I paid him immediately after I looked up his history and saw he just sold a 70-200 2.8 lens to another board member and got a positive feedback from it.
He told me he'd ship the same day. The next day he said "Sorry I haven't shipped it yet, but I'm on my way now". Following day I asked for tracking, he said "I will ship it overnight Monday for Tues 10 AM delivery. It's Wed morning and no lens, no tracking number for 8 days, and no communication for 6.
I'm doing a Paypal chargeback now.
My fear is this - he's going into the "Wanted" threads and doing this to other people. I have notified Fred Miranda. If this was a long time member I'd give him more time probably, but after buying and selling on ebay for 14 years I know this wasn't going to be.
