For those who have been collecting toys for quite sometime, I bet you have definitely buy toys from Ebay or online forum. I would like to share my own personal experience on how I was scammed. But lucky for me, i got back my money. And it was not something that i would like to go through again.

Here is my experience. I bought a pair of KAWS Wooden Be@rbrick from a guy in an online forum. Communication was really good and also, he is an old boardie so i have never doubted him. Everything was going on smoothly. I received the tracking number a day after i make the payment to him. Back then, I was so excited to get the Kaws wooden be@rbricks. They are one of my holy grails and I never thought that i can  own them. Anyway, after slightly more than a week, i received the status saying that it has been shipped. I was liked "WTF, i didnt even receive it as no one is at home. Called Singpost immediately to ask them where the hell had they shipped my toys to. In the end, found out that it was posted to another address and it was not the toys that got sent to the address but a DVD. Then i realised that i has been scammed. Lodge a Paypal dispute. Lucky for me, i got all the shipping info proof and got back my money from Paypal.

Just remember one thing when paying through paypal : NEVER EVER PAY ANYTHING THROUGH GIFT PAYMENT. If you do through that, Paypal will not be able to protect you. And 1 more thing, PAY THE AMOUNT IN FULL, never pay by installment. Once again, if you do that, paypal will not be able to protect you too!!

Looks like this guy is out to scam more people. Read it here.
