Here the same…66 days ago Mr Neal shipped (?) the tube with batteries…still NOT arrived in Belgium.

No answer at all from Mr Neal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shame on you Facepalm

I am pretty sure they filed a package trace on your order and are simply waiting for that to come back before they send another. A package trace has around a 30-40% chance of knocking something loose so this makes sense.

I will send you a PM with an email address for someone you can contact about this.

Thank you very much T.A.

I also send you a PM with some additional info…

grts

Don’t worry LM will check everything. IT takes time and time, time and so on… Meanwhile Your PayPal time to open dispute will end, so You become without money and without GT… I filled survey two times – no answer, send PM to Neal – no answer. Now send email to Leo… And clock is ticking. Only information is that LM are checking, tracking etc…


+1
Two times filled survey
Many times I’ve got answer from Neal that He will check tracking and ask courier.
Now You give us contact to another person and the game is start from the begining.

I know that it takes time but it really looks like playing for time, the time when paypal protection will ended.
I don’t want refund, I just want My GT so please don’t writhe “ give him refund “
It is easy to say when you have youre GT in hand…..
If someone has received a GT, do not write such nonsense. Leave it for youreself.

Well, i always suggested to Neal to refund those who are rude towards GT team members and Lumintop if confirmed the parcels are missing and not on the way to them. But they always try to make everyone happy and say they will resend if confirmed missing. Refund or resend means Lumintop will absorb the losses, why take the risk and resend to those who were rude and don’t trust Neal or Lumintop.

When PayPal protection is very close, i suggest you request refund if you don’t trust Lumintop nor Neal. This is for peace of your mind and avoid regret later on.

Well said DENGOH. Thumbs Up

Personally, I am sadly amazed that accusations of Neal & LT delaying or “playing for time” so that PayPal Protection would run out have been made by a few people.

After all the information that has been shared here about the situation & what is being done to correct it, those type statements are ridiculous as well as pathetic.

Of course it is frustrating for the few people who’s packages have encountered shipping problems. But once the package is sent Neal or LT has no more control.

For any person to make accusations aimed at Neal, LT, or Team Giggles because they are one of the unlucky few who’s package is being tracked is totally uncalled for.

Personally….. I completely agree with your idea of refunding the people who have made these unwarranted statements once tracking has indeed confirmed their package is indeed lost.

There is no reason on earth LT should resend to a person that has accused them of being liars & cheats. Just refund their money and be done with them.

When Neals paypal was locked refunds and new payment were not an option but now that it is working again this is an option I am considering. The issue is that it is based on trust that the user will repay for the GT. Although for shipments that will need to be resent anyways, there is not as much risk.

I can assure you it is not a play for time. I want all of these issues fixed months ago. Heck I wanted then GB finished back in December, do you have any idea how much time this GB has taken from me over the last 6 months? I do not want ANYTHING to delay it in any way. I just want it finished.

If you get a PM on BLF, you should get am email telling you that you have recieved a PM. Just like for notifications on a subscribed thread. I think that is what he meant.

It’s been a week since I sent Neal a PM asking if there was any news of the shipment the batteries and short tube.
He hasn’t answered yet.

The batteries was ones that I bought with the GT on December 2th and was not shipped with the GT.
Neal said he’d send the outstanding batteries in a package with the short tube.
This was before I bought the short tube.
Two weeks ago.

Does Neal have any problems so he can’t answer the PM?

PS. I filled out the survey a week ago with this issue.

Sorry for my bad English (gogole transtorla)

Great…. Thumbs Up

As long as you know to have PM notification activated you certainly will get an email notifying you of the Payment PM.

Sorry I misunderstood…… Smile

Will there be guaranteed supply for people on the group buy list at the level im currently listed ? For reference im #1491.
(snip)

The short answer to your question is yes. You are guaranteed a GT at the GB buy price.

You number 1491 puts you in the 4th Payment PM group.

TA has stated it will be at least a month before the 4th Payment PM will be sent.

So do You think I have control? Do you think that I make my packages lost on purpose ? TA has my tracking number… Check it for yourself. Packages even get destination country!

I think his point is that there is positively nothing I can do at all and even Neal and lumintop are very limited in what they can do.

All that can do is file a package trace, which they have done. They it is just a waiting game for the trace to return a result. This usually takes at least 14 days and almost all mail services given themselves 30 days to complete the trace. You can not even file an insurance claim until the trace is returned in most cases.

They are simply waiting for the results of these traces, no big conspiracy.

Jimbo, I’m confused by what you are saying. BUT, to answer your questions, in order I might add; here we go…… Wink

1. NO
2. NO
3. OK …….. I have no need to check anything.
4. Not sure what you mean by… “Packages even get destination country!”

You are obviously frustrated, I probably would be too; but at least it appears things are beind done to try & resolve the situation. These things take time…. that is just the way it is. The ball is in the carriers court.

Good luck…….

I am sure they will send you whatever information they have as soon as they get it.

Anyone that has worked with the postal system knows you just can’t speed some things up.

OK…. That is unfortunate for sure. Sad
Hopefully the trace the carrier will do will get some answers.

Good luck.

Great! I was just about to announce this. The PM’s have now officially been sent!

I actually just got done distributing the donations from the first rounds last week to the 10 team members. We collected a total of $875 in donations from members. I think I forgot to post about this last week it was so hectic.

On behalf of the whole team, thanks for the donations. They mean a lot. Smile

I’m sure I won’t be the first or last to ask, but once orders are placed, how long can one expect to wait for the light to arrive? Will a tracking number be provided?

We thank you for the donations, they are completely optional. No pressure one way or the other. Whatever you feel is right, is right.

The lights are all in stock with lumintop this time around. So it will just be a matter of sorting out the orders, packing and shipping them. I figure about ~2 weeks for them to leave lumintop.

Then it will depend on your location. Locations that will get DHL shipping it should arrive within a week of it shipping. Areas that will need to use registered mail will take longer obviously.
