Default BEWARE OF DINBALL!!

Do not buy from dinball on E-bay. Purchased an item listed as "in-stock". They accepted payment but never sent the item and ignored multiple e-mails. They are not worth the headache!!

Really? I have purchased from them a couple of times before with zero problems. Funny thing though, I have been seeing some negative stuff flying around about them on the web boards lately.

I heard if it's in stock they are fine. If it's out of stock you'll never see it. Just what I have heard and I have no verification.

Default For the record...

For the record, what did you buy and how much did it cost? A few dollars, I dont mind but when it gets to the hundreds, then somebody is in trouble

Dang Ron,
I figured you were going to have trouble with them after you talked to me. The countless stories about the way they rip people off will start piling on. 50/50 shot of getting your stuff, or charged and just a store credit. Dinball should be banned from ebay, and if you give negative feedback, he'll give it right back to you and kind of force your hand to do nothing.

DON'T BUY FROM DINBALL!!!!!!!!!!!!

is it possible to just alert ebay directly without posting feedback.
and maybe give them the link to here.

and if some are tired of reading this stuff....don't!! click on a button back to another thread...

and for a positive note....this type of stuff makes the RCtechers better at buying stuff without getting ripped off or getting headaches.

not everyone is ebay savvy...as others

Try to use your LHS for stuff if possible....avoid all the headaches.

some info

I think he posted it as a "heads up" to the rest of the RC community so others won't get ripped off. I didn't see it as he was complaining.

I have ordered a lot from them and typically get things really fast. Just ordered something yesterday so I hope it comes.

Wow, This must be a fairly recent development. I've made a dozen or so purchases from them and never had an issue. The few items that have been out of stock weren't charged to my paypal account. I guess I'll be wary from this point on.

Um, I think he posted that to warn people so they wont get burned like he did. Which is why I asked him what the product was. If you dont like it, the name of the thread is posted before you click on it....dee dee dee
