Now, two+ months later, I can not get any answer.
(and ofcourse no help from ebay).

I can happily report that I did receive my shipment from Audiotek168 in a timely fashion. I'm not inclined to say that he's a bad seller. That said, the item that I bought was fairly low-cost, and therefore a less likely candidate for an eBay ripoff.

I sell and buy on Ebay.

When buying, I always evaluate the seller - checking feedback, number of sales etc.. I would never buy from a seller with low score unless I can pick it up in person.

When selling, I will always send by some form of signed-for delivery. This gives the buyer peace of mind in that it has been sent, is trackable and is insured. It also prevents "I've not received it" scams. It costs more but you get what you bought.

I have a 100% rating at present with a feedback score of 670.
I have only ever had 2 bad feedbacks, both from attempted scams.

Ebay is safe to use if you follow the "rules".
Not everyone is out to rip you off !!

about their feedbacks.. many of them are FAKES...
Check this thread near the end. Lots of unhappy people.

As for the feedback, he has HUNDREDs of it. He had a slew of bad feedback on the icepower stuff and within a week or so he suddenly had a huge increase in sales of $.99 items to 0-5 feedback members.

You may want to add "audiotek968" and "hu6073" as well!

Default Audiotek = mobile6699 on eBay

The seller who has been widely accused of shill-bidding and fraudulent feedback is back in business with a new name:

mobile6699

Unless you bid very close to their "BuyitNow" price, they will
probably never deliver the goods.

See:

Audiotek on ebay...

and

Scam Alert!

Audiotek are currently being investigated for furaudulent activity.

Too bad! They have nice stuff, and if they'd cut out the "Free Shipping" gimmick and shill-bidding nonsense, they'd probably be doing a nice business with many of us right now.

Sad that greed has motivated so many potentially good sellers to scam us nowadays!
