has anyone bought from this site??

So I was screaming and giggling like a little schoolgirl when I found a Starmax He-162 on this "kuda metal shoppe" website so I promptly placed an order. Then I realized they don't ship outside of Malaysia. Then I realized the website has not been updated since 2010. But their paypal checkout engine was sure working like a charm! On my e-mail notification, a payment was just sent out to a fellow by the name of ahmed habib something something. Would it be safe to assume I just got ripped off?? Here is the site..

Http://kudametal.lot.my

See what you all think!
If I did get ripped off then buyer beware!

Egads..I sure would have loved to have another 162!!!

Probably, yes...I would immediately contact PP and explain the "mistake"....The may waive all of the waiting games they make you do and immediately return your $$$...But I wouldn't wait to get the ball rolling...

I sent them an email asking if they are open and shipping to Canada or the US. I'll let you know if they respond!

I thought Starmax were out of business ?

This is from the site

"STARMAX model is come from factory in china. The order will be place after payment recieved. Factory not keep the stock and need to build take time
5-10day before shipping depend on que of factory order.

All items and accessories would be double tested before shipment. To be guaranteed in brand new condition and work perfectly...
All items will be shipped within specified processing time, following receipt of payment (except Saturday and holiday).

By defaulty the order would be shipped via EMS, which may take 5-10 working days for delivery. ( We will not be responsible with unexpected delay like custom`s process, weather condition etc...).

We will list the tracking number after delivery, You can then visit the corresponding carrier`s website for online tracking information. "

Well, 659 RM or Malaysian Ringitt translates to about $165 which isn't a bad deal considering the 162 is about as rare as running into a Yeti.

Starmax did go out of business, but there are some trickle down models here and there. I ordered a Starmax Panther from dragon hobby u.s.a. and received, assembled and flown it last week.

I sent a lot of website PMs asking if they indeed were able to ship, or if they were even...around. No reply.

The guy's name on Paypal shows up as Mohd Adib Mohd. I found a BlogSpot entry of the guy but not much else.
