If the seller is based in china or the product is not fulfilled by Amazon let the buyer beware he may have to wait/fight for his money back, and the likelihood of it shipping is slim to none.

love it! About time people should know it, I wish this thread would not even exist but instead just delete or better lock every such "deal" that comes up.

This store just launched and has tons of mistakes.

For example

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001FWY1JS/?tag=cl03f-20
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000A6HM9G/?tag=cl03f-20

These will never be honored, but you can hope for credit.

Post what products you are buying :)
Dan why didn't give you JJ a HT

You mean what's wrong with wasting hours of your time for stupid mistakes... (you will have to spend time and aggravation on getting your money back. So play it smart.)

Smith Optics Elite Outside the Wire Goggle Deluxe Kit - $15.74

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0077RHRNM/?tag=cl03f-20 Amazon is selling it for $80.


Can we trust that seller that the item will ship?

a friend of mine ordered ecco shoes for cheap from a seller that just launched and only has 1 review and didnt realize its a scam, he tried canceling it but couldn't cancel it,
he called amazon a few times trying to say this is a scam and they said there is nothing they can do now, and he will have to wait it out till april 6 to see if he gets it, and till then he cant file a claim or anything, anything he can now do to get back his refund before that date?
Do u have any different idea for a signature?

He should call in April 7 and they'll refund it without a problem
