Hi Guys's

Just like to warn you of J E SPARES in the uk.

I have recently ordered from them for the first time and i'm still waiting!! Been over 2 weeks since paypal cleared. They said they would post when paypal cleared and i have had no respose to emails and my on line account says the order is still pending!!!!

I order from TOWER HOBBIES and i have done for some time... I have no problem with them in fact i placed an order on the same day as J E SPARES and i have already received it (as i said earlier i live in the UK)..

I will keep you informed........  :evil:

I have ordered from JE Spares many times and always recieved top quality service and support. I imagine this is a one off. Keep the faith, you'll get you parts. They may have a stock issue. Have you called them?

I have only ordered from JE spares once but was not impressed, I ordered On a friday afternoon but he did not send my order untill the following tuesday and then i only got half of what i ordered, when i emailed him he said that someone must have ordered the same item as be by telephone just before i placed my order that is why it said "in stock" when i ordered  :?

Anyway it was a further 2 days before i received the rest of my order.

Not quite red letter material but not good buiseness.

UPDATE ON BUDDY420

After nearly two months, my parts and money is being held HOSTAGE and communication on his behalve has gotten even worse!

I had to ship the parts i got back to him (extra bliksemse $20) and he will either refund me or send the correct parts once he has received the parts that i have sent back to him. The only problem is that i have no garentee that he'll honor this agreement and the fact that he no longer lists the parts is quite troublesome which means that i most probably will get refunded and will have to go somwhere else to get the same stuff again. At this point in time responces to emails has gone up from 4 to 8 days and the only way i got him to respond last time was threathing him with an paypal claim. His ebay rating has also gone down hill, with even more customers having similar issues with his service!

IM STARTING TO GET FED-UP NOW! :evil:

This is the last i'll report on BUDDY420

Last i heard of him was on the 18th of November saying that he got the parts i sent back to him and requesting a list of the parts i should have gotten. Have mailed him multiple times but no responce what so ever. Guess i'll never get the parts and i can kiss the $115 along with the $20 for shipping the wrong parts back to him good-bye since the 45 day paypal claim deadline has come and gone ages ago. Only option left is to report the items as not received on ebay and report this useless *CENCORED* to ebay.

I am of the opinion that he never intended to send the correct parts my way and kept me dangling at the end of an line untile the claim deadline passed. This oke is sure one clever scamer and i was naive enough to take his word that he'll send the correct stuff my way. Guess i had to learn the hard way that people cant be trusted! :evil:

I seriously recommend that all potential customers stay away from this oke and that he be updated as a scammer!

hey guys .
i dident read every thing but never take any ones word on fleabay !!!!
allwaly file a claim within 45 days b 4 you even send it back !!!
if a guy says send it back say ok i will file a claim first ...
thretten to file a sellers non performance (snp) and that you will contact other guys that neged him and urge them to do the same and then do it !!!
than tell him that a (snp) will cause eb to limmit or suspend his account , they will do that !!!
also thretten to file a complaint with ic3.gov , then do it , and urge others to do the same !!!
if its not enough $$$ for ic3.gov they will add them up if lots file than something might happen ???
also i all ways use my credit card , it gives you a second layer of protection !!!!
never do a ebay deal out side the box of eb , i just did and got burned for $1500.00 ....
i filed the claim but i dont have the eb protection so pp wont do any thing !!!
now back to the credit card , file with your cc company and they go to pp for the $$ then pp goes to the seller ....
im doing it right now on the 1500 im out with the scammer (mmrc30) {eb name} ....
iv been getting scamed alot over there , 4 times this month alone !!!
check this one out , i won this and then look at his feedback , you will see my neg and others and i filed the same day ...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0308580421

the paypal credit card thing is called a charge back here is how that works , below ...
well i hope this helps gets some $$$ back for some guys , iv been there many times and it sucks !!!!!!
thats how i learned all this and it does work with allot of sellers ....
later
bob
heres the charge back thing ...

https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/websc ... backGuide1

[quote="BADBOB2219";p="691763"]
hey z can you please post how the charge back works ???
Lets see, i payed with Google check out (you have to be a member to use it) it is kinda like paypal, the $ get withdrawn from your cc first.
After getting tossed around by this errr, idiot, i filed a charge back with my bank*, because google was powerless. The bank opened an investigation and gave me a $1600 temporary credit on my count, which was kinda cool :-D cuz i need it it, but they said if the case will be found against me, i`ll have to pay the $ back 8-O

Long story short the bank contacts the other side and ask their version of the story, if they cannot get a hold of the scamper (that was in my case) then you are automatically get release on you $ hold and the status changes from temporary credit to permanent. DONE! TAH-DAHHH lol  it is a very nerve racking proses i tell you though and might take long time, but just stay on the banks investigators a$s lol so they will do the work.

*
To do a charge back go to you banks website or call them. As soon as they open you case they will send you a letter asking to send then a letter ...they ask basic questions like. What happen and how did u try to resole this. Just show the bank your cooperation and they will help you out!

did you get any thing shipped ???

No, i canceled the order and asked for my $ back.

in my case the guy sent about 1/2 of what i bought , so i did get a package so now its my word against his i guess ????
You can write RTS on the box and return it ro who ever the carrier is. RTS - return to sender lol thank got ZT has never had any of these.


pp told me my cc company might have me send it back but i can see it now this peice of *censored* will say i diddent send it all back ???
any help on that would be greatley appreciated !!!


Sorry i did not get this part.

is it a big deal zero ???

Not really, unfortunately this happens more and more now a days :( companies became just about money, you know. I hate that. now since i see what it takes to make a product i know the product does not have to be so expensive. We try our hardest to keep the prices low, but right now...man the world has gone crazy lol

and can you explain the process , i kind of know but dont know for shure !!!
Well i tried my best to explain the proses. I hope you can understand my blabber ... i kinda have a language barrier lol

NOT THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS ... GO GET YOUR $$$$ BACK !!! :D

Dont deal with speedie-racers and rcdamper on ebay. Both these sellers owe me parts for over six months now, they do not answer any of my mails ebay cant help cos I reorted it too late so did paypal. These guys scammed the *censored* out of me by just ignoring me. Lost over $100.
