    Definitely!
    I wouldn't have gone near him with that amount of negative feedback in a month.

    I think you should keep away from eBay. Or learn to read feedback and listings properly.

    Your fault for not doing the basics.

    Even taking into account that a lot of the negative feedback happened after the 9th, I'd still have avoided him on the frequency of complaints prior to that.
    I'll bet you'll check the feedback in future!

    tbh, this is the reason I don't use Ebay

    what about if I'd been the first to buy something off him, I'd of only seen the GOOD feedback!

    to be honest, after looking at that feedback, alot of stupid people have bought off him, i ALWAYS check feedback, any negative i wont bid.

    The only people who don't like ebay are people who don't know how to use it safely

    The guy has negitive feedback, however his positive feedback is 98.5%, which is good.

    He probably sells a lot of rubbish on e-bay, so I wouldn't be supprised if it did take a wee while for him to get around to do things like dispatch goods etc.

    I would give him more time. It doesn't sound like he's deliberately scamming you, rather that he just hasn't got around to sending it yet.

    Judging by the volume of customer's he has had, that is no supprise. He's had more than most small businesses would ever get!
