I recently won an original Bukimi Kun card from a seller on eBay. The card was great! I love it! I asked the seller if he had anymore - he said yes and sent me a picture of two more original Bukimi Kun. Well, I received my package today to find that the two cards enclosed were 2014 new release Bukimi Kun. I emailed the seller and he denied any responsibility even going so far as to blame me. Even after I paid more than the asking price to cover his selling fees.I found out today, to my horror, that the picture he sent me was from the following website:
Jeremy - did you make the purchase through eBay or Paypal? Have you filed a claim for either one? Let us know how it goes - man, you have not had good luck with international deals - I feel for you, I really do brother - hope all goes well for you!
Thanks, Grant! It was through PayPal as payment for goods and services. The items were never on auction with ebay. In the message to seller section I even put "payment for original japanese bukimi kun." Surely PayPal can discern what between original japanese bukimi kun and the USA 2014 release... I'm really hoping PayPal will back me up. This was such a case of bait and switch. We already know the guy is a pos considering his transaction with Eric.
Yes, I have had some really bad international luck lately: resealed LPB1 packs AND bukimi kun bait and switch. It has certainly started to affect my joy in the hobby, which I hate to say. I know these things happen, but damn these last 2 situations with crooked sellers has taken a toll. I'm still collecting but only with certain people that I trust. This is just so shi*ty - twice within a two month period.
I'm sure I'll feel better in a few days. I'm so glad that I paid as goods and services. My last fiasco (resealed packs) made me realize that buying internationally and paying as friends or family is pretty much signing away your right to dispute.

seymourbarf: I found a new image-hosting site, and have begun the painstaking process of replacing all of my collection photos. I have my art up, but the rest will take some time. I'm not sure how many other people are going to do this though.

seymourbarf: And don't get me started on Maria Thayer. I have loved her ever since she played Copper Top on Strangers with Candy. I have a straight-up crush on that girl. Amy Adams too. Hell, put boobs on Ronald McDonald and I'd give 'em a go!

seymourbarf: Okay, so Eagleheart is probably the funniest, most ridiculous show I have seen since...Get a Life! Chris Elliot is a comedic god. I even loved the one season he was on SNL. Great link Trippy!
