He swiftly answered any concerns I had so I placed the order and waited... and waited. Then the date of estimated arrival passed without communication so I sent him a message.... and waited... and waited. So I sent another after 2 weeks in case he was on holiday... and waited... and waited. A week later, still no communication, still no shipping information. So I requested a refund from the seller... and waited... and waited.
Today I went through eBay dispute and received a refund almost instantly. I do not believe this seller ever had this product. Perhaps he was working in partnership with someone else acting as a middleman. Or maybe he only ever had 1 and sold it too many times, I'm not sure.
Stay well away! A real shame.
p.s Any UK sellers offering similar? I'm still on the lookout.
