buying from mhmb7 - iral

Postby mmi » Sun Jul 02, 2017 2:21 am

Has any one had success buying from US seller MHMB7 - IRAL -COLLECTALL1..COLLECTALOT ---ALEX dont know why it takes 3 names for mostly BIN
have only been successful on several items
he does code but with a different book so it is still a chance on most unphoto ed items
most every month there are 2 items I would like/chance and every 2-3rd month there may be 8-12 items

I have tried to deal with him several times (whom ) ever responded last time said price is x and would only go up and 2+ items would ship in 1 box and cost full price inclusive of + X $ shipping + X fees
shortly after(in conjunction with epay BS suggestion)most of the YY went to BIN only( 1 buy 1 pay 1 ship )and include the shipping within the BIN
so as I calculate all items went up $8 (ie)$6 or (10)(15) car + $7 shipping + $1fees = $14 for $6 car
therefore if I want 10 cars/items = $140 / = $60 for items + $70 for shipping + $10 fees When the actual cost should be $69-$75

I have had a look at what he is selling and have no problem with the models, quite a mix of brands including the type of models I know ''mmi'' is interested in but the fact he is selling under several 'Usernames' is not good and will add unwanted risk to any transactions connected to this seller. Along with Rob, I would leave alone.

It is difficult to see why a seller would need to trade under three different aliases if he has nothing to hide.
On that basis alone, I would not buy from him.

so........ no one has dealt...had success with him.....?

2-3 cars I like/need most every month...with the $6 ea shipping they are usually BIN $4 above where I would pay risking double triples

suppose I will try. 1 more time ...... I see six cars listed I would like....deduct $6 from each and charge actual correct shipping for 1 box...
.$10 covers 6-20 in most shipments...........just received 35 for $14

Some people have more accounts for different reasons, I have two myself, the main diecast one is tjlglass on which I sell diecast, the other one is for mostly football stuff of which I also dabble in, as a family we have a joint 3rd account but this is mainly used by my wife or odds and sods and the money raised from that goes towards holidays etc, none of my accounts are there to deceive.

all are predominantly cars and 60-90 % MB there are definite class's ...? maybe better box..? have not studied
not implying that this one is to deceive either...which is another odd point ...why 3-4..?

epays cover up for those living off inflated shipping was free or included shipping...however they fee that also...so it is another fee generator which if they are ALL BIN or otherwise inflated....like govt they collect inflated fees.

I would not mind $4-6 extra for a car I need.as a single ship..but many list for the month or longer (the rental plan)
hence @ 2000 + MOY I would expect others to need the same ones ........as the coded (rare scarce) listed are 2-3 x more $

I have 3 like offers/requests out now ...suppose I will do calculations and make offer from my side x per car and $8 or actual invoice normal shipping...since I have received 140 cars for for $25

I have always found some of his Yesteryears to be 'Friday' models amongst the better stuff so I don't bother.

I have not even considered non cataloged or >$30 items
just the regular not common here....that is another reason they should be (actual shipped - $6 )after listing for 60 + days
