1stopled 3x XML thread?

I havent been very active in here for a while, but what happened to 1stopled's 3x XML-T6 thread? The link is http://budgetlightforum.com/node/5198 and the titles was Cree 3 x XM-L-T6 ----30W ----- Flashlight $39 - Delivered !! only ...

Has it been closed for a reason, or just because the offer ended? When I couldn't find the link, I got scared that I was somehow scammed(and you closed the thread ASAP).

Please help shed a little light on this Smile

I don't think so. I'd rather that another civil war not break out as soon as the thread is re-published. :~

Ah, okay. I did not see that thread. Is it over the bounds to ask if anyone has received the light yet?

Mine's been listed as "confirmed" since 10/31/11.  Sent an email inquiring as to shipping status this morning.  So far, no reply.  Hope the light shows up...

Got an email from Alfred overnight saying they were running slow after their site was attacked.  He said early orders shipped Monday and status updates were under way.  My light now shows "shipped"

So no one has received their light yet? Is it just me, or are we nearing the point where we complain to PayPal?

I know it's not out of the ordinary to wait over 14 days from china, but usually someone gets it a lot quicker - and quite a lot in here took part in the offer.

 I remember he said you guys should receive the lights mid-November and November is almost over. 

 I'm glad i didn't jump on the sale. Or else i'll be sitting on fire right now.

My order was placed 10/30 and supposedly shipped the next Monday.  Starting to wonder if my money is gone.  Thank goodness for PayPal...

I got another reply to my e-mail.  He said to let him know if it didn't come by Wednesday.  Didn't come today so . . .

How many days do we have before the Paypal thing expires?

Yes, 45.

"You open the case no later than 45 calendar days from the date of your PayPal payment and – if you need to – escalate it to a claim no more than 20 calendar days after you open your case."

Given the aggressive tone of the original sales thread, you may want to start pursuing remedies NOW, rather than later.

I've not received mine either, I just hunted through my paypal and found I paid for the light on the 28th, but I'm not sure when they shipped the light. I checked my account on Onestopled and it showed it was shipped around the time I checked, which was the middle of Nov, but did not have a shipping date. 

 

Really curious if and when people start getting them.  I'm going to give it a few more days before I file a claim.

It's Wednesday and, no light.  I sent him another nice e-mail but, having never had anything like this happen before, I have to ask; is it smart to wait until right before the 45 days to start the process or should we all just say, screw it and file claims all at the same time?

My Paypal shows paid on 10-28-11 so, I'm thinking this guy gets another week from me and then I'm all done.

I just started a dispute with PayPal.  Paid a month ago and supposedly shipped 3 days later.  Not a happy camper!

Well, with PP it's a step-by-step process. Sort of like arbitration with a drunk and reckless arbitrator. Wink

If you haven't done so already, I'd file a dispute now. Everything you do from there on out, including all communications, are on the record and PP can review all of it. You don't have to file a claim yet. As I see it, at this point, that's a "no harm, no foul" type of situation.

As for filing a claim, my personal policy is to go with my gut. There are some vendors that I trust. Back when I ordered a lot from DX, I would trust their word and they would trust me, well, to some extent, obviously. I didn't have to jump through some hoops when things went wrong and if the people I knew there told me they'd make things right, I knew they would. There are a couple of eBay sellers that I trust as well (365digital being one: a while ago I ordered a flashlight and after a month, I basically paged them with a polite "soooooo... what's up"; they offered to re-send since this was meant to be a gift and trusted me to pay for the 2nd light, which I did of course). If some guy I had no prior relationship with and that nobody I trust had vouched for, told me "your light is in the mail", I'd consider it the same as "your check is in the mail" and act accordingly.

Just got an email from OSE Holdings (1stopledshop) saying my order status had been changed to "canceled" about an hour afterI started PayPal dispute.    Seems it would be hard to cancel an order shipped 4 weeks ago.  I believe Al has been playing with our money. Sure doesn't look like he's been shipping lights.

Once again, I would encourage those having placed an order to file a PP claim NOW rather than later. 

It would be a different story had a few torches landed...but no updates for weeks UNTIL PP WAS INVOLVED says it all. 

I have a feeling his funds are going to be first-come, first-serve.  Those at the end of the queue will get caught out.

Now I get a message from PayPal that Al is saying "there was no cancellation, we had some problems with a freight co.  (Chinese Post office?) and everything is being resolved, tracking #s will ensue, etc.  Hope so...

 

Going to have to SEE it at this point.
