The seller is also selling

 

Waterman Hemisphere £53 down to £10

Omas £10

Twsbi Eco £10

Pilot peacock ink 10

 

Biggest bargain is a Duofold - £400 also down at £10


How many people does it take to comment on a question on FPN? One to give advice and make suggestions. Another one to repeat everything that the first poster has said. Fourteen to share their own experiences of their pens and comment on how the original advice was flawed. Seven who just want to increase their post count. One to say that they have no regrets about doing anything and people should follow their example. Another to say that if there is anything wrong with the pen it is just down to using Diamine Shimmer ink. Six to argue over whether its a worth doing anything with it and the OP should just throw it away and buy their Parker 51. One to ignore who uses 'I' four times in each post. Another six to condemn all of the above as being  stupid and anyway they would rather be on FP Geeks. One to say that the pen is cheaper where they live. Five people to post pics of their own pens. One to say that if the OP had Faith then the pen would work - and gets banned very quickly. Finally, one to close down the thread because it has lost its way.

Well, I've just finished a chat with Amazon outlining all the red flags, but the rep thinks everything is fine and assured me my order is covered for full refund under the AZ guarantee. I guess a £10 fraud is nothing to a behemoth like Amazon to swallow.

 

Where do we stand on the credit card lotto numbers? Any takers?

This is the exact same scam Wasiki was posting about the other day.

 

A new seller pops up, scrapes someone else's inventory and relists everything for the exact same price.

 

Anyone know the bigger picture here? There has to be an angle they're after.

I'm going to wait for this eagerly, we all know that the chance of this being true is 1:1000000, and one in a million chances happen 9 times out of 10, right?  ;)

Or maybe it's Amazon themselves temporarily 'borrowing' from us?

I ordered for the fun for about 1500£ worth of pens.

Then i contacted amazon.co.uk services on the phone. The first guy whom i talked to thought everything was fine, till i told him the real price of a new Pelikan Toledo amongst others, is no way 10£ not even 500.

Then i had another person on the phone, and from what i could understand all this is a big fraud attempt. Therefore i asked them to cancel my numerous orders ( 20 pelikan M1000s, 10 Pilot 823, etc...).

I knew it from the start, but i had a nice dream for 10 minutes.

Haha.

Yep, them's the ship controls - labeled in black on a black background, a little black light lights up in black to let you know you’ve done it

I've seen sellers like this before, and I've read the other threads. They just don't dispatch.  :(

It's okay Chrissy you just have to wire them the monies directly. I also took advantage of their offer to move monies from my vault to a communal fault for steam cleaning.

If you all get the pens that you ordered, then that will be great news.  :)

Pens have been sent by carrier 4PX and a tracking number has been given. This is a China based company.

Well my vault is now nicely steam cleaned, but unfortunately there is a delay filling it back up, as the monies now need to be pressed and steamed. NOT IMPRESSED Monies Removal Plc. :gaah:
