I'm having "issues" with ck-modelcars_uk (ebay seller) from Germany, has anyone else had any problems?
I am surprised, never had a problem with them at all. I've had maybe fifty or so things from them.

I'll stop fretting then! Hopefully just a one-off, thanks.
What problems are you having?


The packages are just taking an awfully long time to get here and now the DHL tracking is showing the status as :"The recipient of the shipment is unknown. The shipment will be stored."
When I contacted the seller, he got a bit shirty, gave me a different tracking number that isn't recognised and told me to contact my local post office as "they have the order dunno why they not delivered in to you." The point seems to be that DHL still have the package and not Royal Mail but he won't accept this.

As you said, I haven't had problems with these guys before. If I hadn't dealt with them previously, I would be getting a little bit more annoyed than I am at the moment!

That's odd, normally things from there take four working days to arrive, sometimes they come in only three.

I've only had trouble once with a sub standard model but contacted them & told them I was a member here & if they didn't resolve problem I'd have to inform the other members that I had bad experience, got a inspected fresh model the next week.  I'd use that approach if you have no joy with them but usually they're quite good.

I've never had an issue with them either... perhaps they were just having an "off day" or something. Nonetheless, I'm wishing you the absolute best resolution! :occasion14:

I've also bought stuff from them before, and had no issues whatsoever. Shouldn't be a problem, just wait a little longer and the parcel should arrive.

I just recently had bad experience with an Ebay seller (min-collection) from South Korea.  Ordered a Kyosho Ferrari 512TR and an Autoart Countach, for reasonable price.  Got a 1/43 Minichamps F1 model instead.  No communication or attempts to resolve.  Finally eBay stepped in and refunded my money.  In process of recovering shipping amount now.  (I get the difference refunded, as I need to return sellers item to get it.)  Ironically, I would have been better off if seller had sent me nothing, as I will only get about 60% of my shipping cost back after paying to return wrong item.

The whole experience has me very puzzled:
-Seller had no previous issues, good feedback rating and over 1000 transactions
-This last batch of auctions something went very wrong as seller recieved 145 negative feedback in one month
-If eBay account was hacked, why send anything at all?  Really puzzled by getting wrong item.  They also combined shipping charges for two items after items were bought.
-Feedback settings were changed to private at some point, so I really cant tell what happened.

Anyway, this seller currently isn't selling anything, but if you see this username, I would steer clear!

Greetings from Finland

I haven't had real bad experience with any dealers but some, usually French ones, have been somewhat unsatisfying. Either they charnge totally illogical s&h fees or just refuse to send their items anywhere outside France.

But these sellers I must give greetings for well done trades

BAD:

car_models (Greece).

I bought a FrontiArt openable resin Lambo Aventador in 1/18 from them. It was supposed to be "brand new, never opened" and so on. But what I got simply shocked me. The model was totally damaged without any chance to fix sth and dusted. I opened a case and returned the model for the full refund. But it cost me € 55 (US $ 80) for return shipping (shame on eBay).

linshan_07 (China) (and many others)

They've listed plenty nice models at ridiculous prices until recently. It was fortune to me (I thought that time) I'd managed to win a Kyosho's BMW Z4 (E89), and I was disappointed I'd missed Kyosho's Testarossa. Silly me!

Luckily I found out who they were prior to pay and never paid.

'linshan_07' has been an eBay member since Dec 28, 2012, and having earned some positive feedbacks on crap started to scam.

STAY AWAY from those sellers! Look to their feedbacks to confirm.

Guys beware of eBay seller "f1_mania" who is a former dx member that was banned after getting caught being shady: https://www.diecastx...he-next-victim/

Looks like he is slowly selling off his collection on eBay. I recently purchased a model off him but it wasn't until after the model was shipped that I worked out who he was. This guy was an absolute nightmare to deal with, and it's a miracle my model arrived in 1 piece. He tried to cancel the order, and when that didn't work he tried to get more money out of me. He also did a piss poor job packing the model. All I can say is once a shyster always a shyster ...

Oh Mark! Sorrry you bought from him! I urge anyone who reads this not to deal with him. He's shady as hell! After he was banned he came back on, surprisingly I had a tip who he was and we banned him again. No doubt he's moved on to some other forum as scammers like that tend to do  :rolleyes:

I've been there before. What's worse is they think they're doing you a favour!
I only ever do buy it now when I sell as there are too many dreamers and messers on there now.

Exactly.... and it was a "Buy it now" sale, as always for me.  He ghosted my first message, and sent me this tonight after a second attempt : " i've lost all confidence in you after your first message "

Lol, i've sold around 60 models in 18 months on Ebay with 100% positive feedback, but ok why not....  I can't relist my model now because i always wait for the discounted ebay fees to 1 euro.

Ebay is terrible at the moment, with this idiot and the other one from Spain who decided to leave an insulting and defamatory feedback after his purchase.... ( the package has been rejected by his country because of the virus, my fault obviously )

Another time waster is kumkarth_5 which may also help you identify him on the Facebook Group Autoart Fans.

We agreed to do a sale through ebay so as to use UPS for shipping and make sure we were both covered. Then I had the number of messages I've only ever reached breaking up with girlfriends!!! He's on, he's off, he's on again then off again!
Next minute he's opened a PayPal case against me for fraud!

I've wasted hours getting it all unraveled and sorted out! Just DON'T go near him!

This seller here, bpositivebp


I've never bought from them and never will. This is how they do their ebay adverts. I've bolded the text that is against ebay policy, sadly though I can never find a way of reporting this nonsense. I'm baffled why they are allowed to sell.

Item number, 174212991295



1:18 AutoArt Mercedes 600 Maybach SWB !READ CONPLETE TEXT BEFORE BUYING! New!



Please read my complete text before buying!!

If you don't agree with what you read, please don't buy!

- PayPal transaction costs are costs to the buyer (+6%);
- If you don't want to pay the extra costs for a PayPal transaction pay by bank transfer!
- Buyer is responsible for custom duties etc. if applicable.
- Shipment in the Netherlands EUR 10,-
- Shipment to countries belonging to the European Union EUR 15,-
- For most other countries EUR 25,- (ask me for the costs to your country)

I hereby have on offer a very nice and brand new Mercedes 600 Maybach Short Wheel Base by AutoArt. Car has many beautiful details.

This is a very detailed Diecast model.

The car is brand new and comes in its original box which is in as new condition as well.

AutoArt fans don't need further explanation. They know these models and know the high quality and high degree of detail we are talking about!

F**k you Photobucket.
