Well I think I’m going to finally give up hope of ever seeing this helmet. :pale

He finally replied to one of my many emails on Jan 14.

Quote:
this is terrible mate i know what its like to have somthing lost in the mail and be out of pocket, no worris mate i can claim for the helmet and send you another out, now the claim takes a couple of weeks to come through but il need to make another one for you anyway so please please be assured that you havent been ripped off and you WILL! get a hemet my friend, i will start the claim tomorrow and let you know how things are progresing


Then I never heard anything since.

Most recently I saw that he has received around 5 or so negative feedbacks from buyers saying that they have waited for months and never received anything. And now on his latest auction (ironically for a Royal Guard helmet) he has this:

Quote:
Please note i have now sold the mould for this item as i am leaving ebay these 3 are the last ones i had on stock dont just watch and be disapointed when there gone there gone. i would just like to say i have enjoyed my time on ebay and thankyou to all my customers who have bought from me


I sent him one last email, this time to his actually email address instead of through ebay. But I have a feeling it is of no use. :pale

What? He has to make yours from scratch, but has three to sell on eBay and no longer has the mold?

What a rotten thing to do. That's a real scammer and you should report him to eBay for scamming you and still selling hot air to others.

Sorry that you didn't get your helmet.

WTF is going on right now? Left and right we are getting reports of people not getting their stuff... it's just so sad to hear and I wish I could do something about it as I hate people getting scammed in this way.

Really sucks that you had to go though all that Corbadda. Those few bad apples out there always make me nervous about buying stuff online. Which is why the sellers feedback section is always my first stop when i wanna pick something up.

Hopefully, you will see the helmet *Fingers Crossed*

Well I think I have officially lost all hope in this. I just found this thread on The Dented Helmet forums.

http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/forums/showthread.php?p=315104#post315104

If you are ever on ebay make sure you avoid karline-2000 :angry4

Sorry to hear that. That really sux.

I know it's probably too late to get the money back now and you probably feel like not wanting to go through the hassle with another seller.

Man... this really sux.

You should probably make a public warning about Karline2000 in the feedback section, so others won't get scammed as well.

And then... let's got throw some eggs at his house. :angry4

Corbadda,

I posted in that TDH thread too. He stalls to make you wait past the 45-day deadline to report it to eBay with "I'll send you out a new one," etc. etc. I'll post a follow-up in the Den's "Seller/Buyer Feedback" forum.
