Oh, yeah.

And they use Shill-bidders to jack up the bids,
an example is the "buyer" e-bay.ims.

I'm sure they are the same people!

Was going to say my order arrived and worked fine, but it was my first and was a small part. It did get lost but was re-sent successfully inthe end.

I got a response, to my email, from them:

Quote:
"There is some problem about the above item(NichiconKG4,700/100v ) We just has no stock now!"
Interesting! Because their current listing offers the same product (and it states that over ten 2pc lots are available!)

http://cgi.ebay.com/NICHICON-KG-Audi...3286.m20.l1116

They did offer to send me "another item at half the buy-it-now" price, but their buy-it-now prices are often higher than prices from legitimate sellers, in the US and Canada, on items like Black Gate caps and Holco resistors, for example(and we have no assurance these are genuine)!

I am requesting a refund through Paypal's resolution center before the 60 day mark passes...

Wish me luck!

you should also send eBay a message that they are offering for sale items they don't have.

I was about to pay an invoice for $12.40 to Audiotek but PayPal came back saying that account is not accepting payments.

I got a private Email from Audiotek asking me to pay into another Email account.
They have confirmed they have stock of the 4 items.

I had placed a few small orders to audiotek168 befoer i saw this thread. Nothing to cry about, but I won't be happy if my ALPS pot doesn't arrive.

It's only been less than 10 work days, so there's still time I'd give for the orders to arrive. I'll post the results of that if the order does or doesn't arrive.
