I dont even think an authorized vendor can buy the light from nitecore for that price

I think I paid around $39 for mine and from what I understood it was only a few dollars more than the vendors cost.

Would you mind keeping the wrong flashlight?

Yep no doubt it sounds like a scam but I had to order one just in case.

The guy actually has what looks like legitimate feedback.

We’ll see soon enough.

my finger was on the PP trigger and….. I didn’t buy it. I just couldn’t believe someone would give away 110 of those at a loss.

I would be very happy for anyone who actually receives the light at this price though.

Normally this is what I would have done but I had to get my two year old son to bed for his afternoon nap and I was under pressure. :bigsmile:

The problems will start when he sends the buyers a bag of donkey sh#t, signed for.

Not sure if we will be made to return before a refund

easy enough if you used a credit card. file a dispute with the CC company.

File a claim immediately with eBay.

I was involved with two fake deals. One, where the seller stole another members identity. The other, where the seller simply disappeared.

In one case, I made the claim when the delivery date expired. In the other, I made the claim only a few days after purchase, even before the promised delivery date. (I noticed a string of negative feedbacks started to pile up just after I made my purchase. Went from 100% positive to 57% positive almost overnight.)

In both instances, eBay refunded me via Paypal within 48 hours. Very simple. No questions or further justifications asked. Seemed like they already knew there was a problem with the seller.

Last time I saw a “too good to be true” deal it turned out to be legitimate and one member did receive his TK75 2015 for $100… So apparently these deals do exist, and PayPal is always there to back you up in case that it turns out to be scam.

Unfortunately not possible now, bloody eBay washed their hands from this, when you click “Resolve a problem” you get only “Continue to PayPal” as an option…

They have not said its a scam yet. Just that the listing has been removed, normally that means sold out.

It might be a scam, I’m not totally stupid but I would hold fire for a bit. And the end of the day they have not cost $23 to manufacture so there is still profit somewhere.

After all some of us just got thorfire jm07s for $9.99.

Chinese New Year is next Monday, and normally these companies will only resume business again 2 weeks after CNY.

Some users that ordered during the weekend or earlier is week already received shipment notifications, so most probably the shop owner is already away for CNY break

I purchased one this morning for $25.99.

I was willing to roll the dice, for the price. Smile

He sells also this 14 x XM-L for "too good to be true"-price: http://www.ebay.com/itm/161967386453

That's quite heavy light, so shipping would be almost 100% of the price => buyer beware!

I noticed this listing says it comes with the charging cable. The old listing specifically said it did not come with a charger, perhaps that’s why the price hike. And I’m very much considering rolling the dice too.

No charger and cell but both come with USB cable and holster.

The Chinese government subsidizes most of the shipping costs from China.

Buyer Beware is on point.

While I was willing to gamble based on the 99.7% positive feedback rating, I neglected to check on how many feedbacks that was based upon. And that was only 364. :ghost:

The last fraudulent deal I was involved with also had a seller with about 300 ratings. Had I been more diligent, I would not have purchased this flashlight. I requested the seller to cancel my order, but haven’t gotten a response yet.

I’m tempted also. I’ve always liked the MH20, just worried this could be a scam of some kind, but maybe not, who knows. But I could also just basically double the money and get another set of the Al Kronos X6/X5 lights. What to do, what to do…..

This keeps repeating. The pattern is obvious – small amount of good, legit sales to build up rep, then sudden burst of really really cheap items with infinite quantity. And people keep falling for it.

Don’t compare this with some pricing mistake by reputable vendors! Bigger sellers need to maintain rep and will sell at a loss. As for eBay seller with 300 feedbacks, why should he give a nut? Just take the money, close shop and open another scam. In fact, the guy probably has tens of stores just for this purpose in the future.

This is one thing I wish BLF to grow more mature on.
