Default Avoid TheBigWholesale on eBay

Bought a thermal smoke lens for my goggles and a gas trhu grip for my gun, first the guy informs me he hasn't shipped after a month of waiting, this excuse was that they are a Fireworks Wholesaler and are selling paintball products on the side. Regardless of what you're selling a customer is a customer. For the record, Ilive in Canada and it does take a while to get things up here, but not that long! To make it up to me, he told me it'd be shipped priority, low and behold after the 6-10 days it should take, it isn't here. Also in that time I filed a dispute, thinking if he's shipping priority, it'll be here before it was up, and Paypal has automatically closed it because I hadn't escalated it in the 20 days as I've been negotiating with the guy.

Between negotiating with the seller and the original auction itself I've been waiting almost a month and a half to receive a package. Not to mention it looks like he waited until the dispute was up to see if I'd escalate it or not. I'm not mad about losing the cash (about $40) I'm much angrier about the fact that I gave the guy a chance to redeem himself and he basically threw it back in my face.

Should the product arrive I may edit this post, if not, I'll also add the feedback from eBay itself.

I love eBay because they have buyer protection, I hate it because the dispute period IS NOT LONG ENOUGH.

That sounds very similar...they wouldn't be located in Michigan would they?

EDIT!!!!

I just looked them up and yep! I work about 1/8 mile from those guys!

Success, talked to the guy, told him I'm leaving feedback Monday whether the items are here or not, and recieved a FULL refund.

This basically tells me, a) the item was NEVER shipped, or b) the item was shipped regular mail against the promise made to ship priority due to the first screw up.
