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.

Weird, I didn't see the option in my order to cancel it, so I emailed him telling him so. He replied, it's cancelled. I then got an email saying it was cancelled by the customer. Can he cancel for me if I asked him to?
I was in Jerusalem, so (a) didn't get a phone call (b) it was cancelled by the time I checked email motzei Shabbos. And it was a generic email "Hello yaakov..."   -my name's not Yaakov :)  I guess he Copied and Pasted his response.
What's his email address?

The one deal I was about to order from a 3rd party since I saw 3 -5star reviews goes sour!

Didn't have a chance of getting honored either way.

I don't know his email, we were in touch through Amazon. Does your order also say cancelled by customer?

No, just says cancelled.
Looks like I did it. But I didn't..

Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I'm guessing they used an "auto-import listings" utility and mapped 1 column incorrectly.
