Same old thing. Ordered and not shipped. Asked for refund and no response. Got my money back thru Paypal. It could be that his alienation of buyers will come back to bite him in the a**. If so my feelings will not be hurt. You reap what you sow.

I feel sorry for people who don't have a hobby or interest to escape to.

Neal must to be banned over here in BLF. We must punished him to not order anything from him. Because he ignored most of his customers when there is problem. Or if he answer to any question you need to wait days or weeks. Why anyone here have any problems with Simon from Convoy. He is example for one of the best sellers and manufactures here.

If you or anyone else wants to “punish” Neal, do was you said: don’t order from him. That doesn’t imply “banning” him from BLF. It is only a non-sense idea honestly. Oops

Haha yeah block all IP addresses from china Smile I would just mention that although he is unresponsive and his shipping is often quite slow, I “choose” to order from him knowing these things because I like his selection and prices and I always get a good product when it eventually arrives. Just recommended his site to a friend.

Banning him is very unlikely given differing opinions on this forum. There will always be members here who “choose” to order from him and “recommend him to friends”. Not giving him my business or recommending him is the best I can do.

I choose to order from sellers that appreciate my business and show me basic respect and consideration and all the other sellers I’ve dealt with do, even the big company’s (for the most part).

As another poster mentioned, it’s possible he doesn’t care as long as he can get away with what he’s doing, but based on my experience I believe eventually it will catch up to him.

There is PayPal, you finally get desired item or refund. So I see no reason to worry.

Yeah my light still hasn’t shipped. I hope that Hank continues to come out with new lights. He’s my favorite seller by far

I ordered a light. Got no communication after the confirmation, it shipped like 5-6 days later. Got here in about 9 days. He’s never been good at communication but I’ve never had an order not get here.

Similar to my first order, he will ship items within a week if they are in stock however..........

 

........If they are not in stock despite his website stating they are you will then receive nothing for weeks only to then email and be ignored for several more weeks. If you are lucky he may contact you to inform you the item is out of stock as was the case with my second order which left me baffled as to why the item was able to be selected and paid for and why Neal didn't simply just inform me the item is out of stock rather completely ignore my communication for 3 weeks. He simply had to inform me straight away and give me some options / alternatives. When I did mange to open communication with him I asked what was in stock and chose an alternative emitter in an FW3A but still, it sat for an additional week until it was finally shipped. 5 weeks from order to door in UK.

 

My third order sat for around 2 weeks until it was shipped, the problem now is the supposedly brand new E07 I ordered is in worse condition than a factory second and one of the items does not fit the flashlight it was advertised to fit and so, once again I'm playing the communication game with Neal.....being ignored and ghosted.

 

Frankly he shouldn't be in business and should go into a non-customer service field. My third order was my last, I'm no longer doing any business with Neal until unless he completely U-turns his business model.

Ordered a copper GT micro, knowing all the difficulties with Neal decided to be patient. After 15 days, I received the information that was sent and the track number. There was silence for 25 days and the track number was not tracked. I started to lose patience, but suddenly there was an unknown track number of a parcel with a similar weight already in my country. Another week of waiting and Lumintop GTmicro is in my hands. Everything is fine, but why is it so difficult? What is a track number that is not tracked at all? It’s reassuring that PayPal gives you 180 days to open a dispute. If you have strong nerves, you can order from Neal.
