$19 lightbar- Post up if you actually get it

Vaporware?

Post up if you get yours. Looks like the seller got the axe.

The reality of it is, I don't expect to get the $19 back. Odds are the seller closed the PayPal account when he bailed from eBay.

If a light bar shows up, I'll be surprised.

I'm betting that arrival date is just past some refund application timeframe.

Figured "screw it". I went ahead and started the complaint process thru eBay.

Quote:
You sent a request
Hang tight, you should hear back from the seller soon
If you don't hear back by Sep. 11, or if there's a problem, you can ask us to step in and help on that day.
I'm pretty sure the seller probably emptied the bank account associated w/ the PayPal account and shut down the PayPal account.

An yeah, this is screaming "scam".

I'm pretty sure it cost more than $18 just to ship a 52" light bar to USA from China.

Not really.

I've dealt w/ international freight & logistics, and shipping from China to the US is stupid cheap compared to vice versa. Not to mention the merchandise costs next to nothing compared to what we pay here in the US, generally for the exact same item just rebranded because it went out the other door in the same factory.

Go to "My eBay" and look under "Purchase History".

Click the box that says "Resolve A Problem" and file a complaint for item not received. Make sure you check the box for a refund, not a replacement.

Well it can be expensive depending on how they ship it... I was trying to source lightbars awhile back and if I recall the 52" curved one was around $25 with shipping for just one would br close to $25 via ship plane would probably be atleast $150

Did you get the "send seller a message" screen and wait until 9/14 message?
