Probably more often than one would suspect...

If the seller is really doing this volume of business, it's no wonder they don't care when they send you poo.
Maybe an unknown vendor with LOTS of feedback should be suspect. I'm sure if the vendor was that popular word would get around rather quickly.

OR, doing that volume of schlamozzling, which is more evident.

This thread is an example of "Roach Baiting" at work.
This product is not a good buy.

I ordered one from supermarket235 the other day, same as motorhomes4sal, and I found 1 positive feedback and no negatives from someone that bought and received one of their metal 4ch ebay helis. Here's where I found it. Page 3, about halfway down on his ebay store feedback:

http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAP...tems=25&page=3

hopefully this seller is legit. I'll be sure to keep this thread posted.
Snipped from sellers feedback page:

"Very nice seller, thanks. trainschnick74 ( 180) Apr-20-10 18:25
4 CH 4CH METAL FRAME RC RTF R/C MINI 3D GYRO HELICOPTER (#250615164090) US $32.00 View Item"

NINETY feedbacks in one day, in a category that mostly goes to the end of the auction without ONE bid? As Ahme said in the Beatles' movie Help, say no more. What was I saying about connivance?

If there is a reporting feature within ebay, it's definitely time to activate it. Not just a transaction report, but a user abuse report. This is either a single guy with >100 accounts, or a ripoff gang. Either way, no question it's deliberate and connived.

Ya know what? I run several boards, and I see exactly the same duplication among texts from different screennames that I do with spammers. As well as the random-character screennames.

This guy's running a feedback bot! And it's not the least unreasonable to assume he has been all along.

Hi friend
Because of our negligence, a group of may send the wrong goods,but we thinks have send the correct to you,if is not,pls contact us,we will compensation for your loss


- supermarket235


Dear supermarket235,


You know you have sent a different helicopter ! a Freebird or a 9808. I do not believe you have these metal 4ch helicopters that you show in the photos. I can assure you I will not accept any other helicopter other than the one in the photo (metal 4ch). If you have sent me the wrong helicopter I will get the full money refunded through a PayPal dispute and leave a very bad negative feedback. All my friends that have ordered will also opern PayPal disputes and leave negative feedbacks. The wrong helicopter will only be returned to you if you pay the shipping. I will NOT accept any partial refunds as I do not want a different helicopter, I only want the one in the photo that I ordered. If you think there is a chance that you have sent me the wrong helicopter you need to send me the correct one TODAY. Regards
