We'll be getting a nice long wait, then a refund from Amazon. The seller will get the funds cleared by Amazon on the grounds that the items are having a nice long international delivery.  ;)

How about a nice Pilot CH 92 for £9.99? Or a Parker Duofold Centennial? Apparently delivered from the US to the UK. Other pens are available and all cost the same price.  :)

 

Plenty of products available: 341 pages.....

For those who have dispatch notices, I don't know what you will get, but I bet it's not what you think.  :)

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

 

Is that above or below the big red button that says "Don't Panic" in large friendly letters?  Oh, wait -- that's the Guide.  My bad....  ;) 

So, when people get their pens, let all the rest of us know if they're real or fakes.

Even that wouldn't be worth mailing from the US or China would it? I wonder if the tracking is authentic.  :huh:

I've just spoken with Amazon UK on the phone. A report is being sent to their seller support department so that the seller I found can be investigated.  :mellow:

The seller has left Amazon who are now giving refunds on payments without even waiting to see if the pens arrive or not.


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.

I believe it would be more accurate to say that Amazon have closed down the seller's account and are refunding those payments that have been taken with dispatch notices, since they know that no £200 - £300 pens will arrive.

The seller is in the USA!  But they will not ship to Australia.

Bah-humbug.

Not Canada, either!

Boo-hoo!

At least you will get your £10 back, so no risk I hope.  -_-
