I was looking at eBay today (really I was just looking, I did not bid on anything) and was wondering if anyone has had any dealings with this eBayer from Thailand... dodamdeet

I would be very careful. I do not know that person but there has been a lot of fraud with ebay sellers from that part of the world. I would check out the feedback and make sure that there is at least 50+ feedback with an average of 98% rating. I would be very cautious if the percentage is less than that.

 

As a fequent ebayer, I have lucked out but also I did a bit of research into who the sellers are. Sellers from China is another hotspot of fraud. IF something doesnt feel right, then it isnt!!!

Stay away. The probability of fraud is very high - There has been a seller called oasico from Thailand who has "reincarnated" many times under different names, A lot are still "crying" over lost time and money. He lures people with few good transactions and then the party starts until he is caught. He disappears and resurfaces with a new name.

 

If you insist to take chances - don't complain later :)

Actually you can contact speerdbob at ebay - he is a good guy that recently moved to Thailand and he might be able to help you with more info (but he is a busy person).

Antonios, you mean speeRbob from Bangkok, don't you?

 

If yes, then I can also recommend him, as I had a pleasant experience: one $20 Pilot Elite I bought from him had a porous section (ink came through) and he sent me another one for free :)

Sometimes those great deals can be just that: Great deals!! I have been fortunate on ebay in this regard. But i just have a bad feeling with some of the SE asian marketplaces.I have been burned before and even though it was not a lot of money,it seems to have always come from the Orient. Not that all happens there mind you. But my item was a copy/knock-off and i did run that risk. Of course i have been sold an imitation in New York and London too so best beware. But it has been proven that the world's share of counterfeit items come from the east.

 

Checking references like you are doing is a good thing .

 

All the best,

Be cautious, like others have said, feedback rating is very important. Peersonally, I do not buy from any seller with a rating below 98 percent and at least 75 comments. I have had great experience with mr. Seow from Pensgallery in Malaysia.

Apparently Caution was warrented. His Ebay account has been suspended.

That's good you were cautious! I hate how ebay don't suspend those sellers with like 300 negative feedbacks, but 5000 positives, probably because those sellers make enough money for ebay. I've had a run-in with one of these sellers before for buying a simple book. To make matters worse, that lady gave retailatory feedback (which I discovered when re-reading her feedbacks) & ruined my 100% perfect score. I still hate her to this day.

 

But I am also very very cautious of sellers from Asia. I always check shipping cost too. The bid can be cheap, but they jack it up with HUGE shipping

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..
    • A Smug Dill
      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
