    Welp - Paypal verified my purchase (as they may have to do w/ the return)
    It looked like the seller is located in US, and I got a March 6-14 delivery range.
    Also interested to see if the pre-sale communication (please swap a white one for the black one, but still ship the amp) has any impact on fulfillment.
    Risk is low, when looking at the bigger picture.
    Frankly, I was just looking for a replacement neck. . .
    Peace - Deeve

    Has anyone else noticed?
    I'm in the UK.
    The original guitar on eBay posted at the start shows location as CN, China.
    I clicked on 'See other items' & now it and the other guitars show the item location as NJ, United States.
    The seller is based in the US & if I ordered the green Strat, I could have it by 16th March!
    Which seems faster than the guys in the US who ordering it days ago.
    Are you sure they are coming from China?

    I messaged the seller about the U.S. one: Ship today or cancel my order. Crickets.

    Now the US one is marked as "Shipped" but no tracking info was provided. Somehow, I doubt anything was really shipped, just that EBay's system was updated.

    Time to call this one a scam I suppose. Oh, well.

    My guess is that PayPal has frozen the original account, not allowing them to pull money out of it. So, they setup a new "seller"

    Why doesn't ebay have an easy way to report scammers? Am I to assume they just don't care how they collect fees?

    Because people, being people, would report competing sellers as scammers or pay a lot of people a few bucks each to report them.

    And, yes, EBay is more than happy to collect fees regardless.

    Who's been scammed?
    there's still about 50 ETA days left for the delivery of my parcel. I wouldn't call anyone out to be a scammer until after that date.

    Just sayin' if you knew you were being scammed, there is no way to report it. If the guy creates a shipping label, which is easy, you basically have to wait 50 days to do anything.

    Somehow we'll have to arrange a show&tell in person.

    Everybody knows, the deep-fake technology might fool me into believing my dream-p-bass was nestled in all that cardboard & newspaper wrapping.

    It was between the impossible guitar and two impossible burgers and drinks.
