    Anyone know of

    INTERPRESS Verlag GmbH? It's located in Hamburg. I might have made my first bad ebay purchase. I'm hoping everything works out ok and the guy seems straight but it's been two weeks and he hasn't shipped yet. So I'm trying to get some additional info.

    Wolfgang,

    I did call him and spoke with him Tuesday. He said it will go out today or Thursday. He has perfect feedbacks, he owns the business I asked about, and his phone number checked out. So, I'll PM you the info if I don't get a tracking number by Thursday. Thanks for your help.

    Thanks,

    Today was the day I expected to get the tracking number and I have not. Not a good sign.

    I appreciate it.....

    I'm sad to report I have not heard from him again. I did send another email yesterday that has gone unanswered. What doesn't make sense to me is, he has good feedbacks, I know who he is, and I've spoken to him on the telephone. Not quite what I would expect from someone trying to scam. In our phone conversation he mentioned that the item was very big and he was concerned about the shipping bow he had intended to use. He said he was going to make his own out of three boxes. He also said he would ship by Thursday and this apparently didn't happen.

    So, here is the info guys.........

    The auction ended 8/26/04 and I paid the same day via paypal.......

    I hope it is not a scam. This sign came from AutoBecker, the same dealer that my car came from. I was really looking forward to bringing them back together.

    As you can see his feedback are not indicative of this type of behavior. I have been using Ebay for many years, very carefully. This is the first time I think I might have an issue.

    Dear Eric,
    unfortunately no. I have had to order a special packaging by a local dealer, which is strong enough to send this fragile item very safe to you. I will get this box tomorrow or on Friday. Then I will ship it the same day and send you the tracking No. Sorry for delay, but I think safety first.
    Kind regards

    Hello Eric,
    sorry for non-answering. We had a system breakdown of T-Online for about 2 days. The other problem is, that I still have not the packaging box for the sign. I will wait till Friday, then I will find another way for safe transportation. I will inform you soon.
    Sorry and kind regards
    Thomas

    He had a reply email address of : 310068080729-0001@t-online.de


    -----------------------------------------------------

    What to do? I do not want to go the dispute route via paypal if at all possible. Fellow Fchaters from Germany feel free to contact him on my behalf to see if you understand better the issue that he is having.

    I just called (0 40) 2 28 07-0 as I figured that local language might help and reached the parents of Thomas Reinicke. Karin Reinicke is his mother. She told me she is not aware of the issue and gave me the mobile # of her son which is exactly the same that you posted. No answer there. I´ll try again tomorrow and keep you posted.

    I can´t see why it should be so complicated to send the item. He could simply take some "LuPo" (Luftpolsterfolie, I have no translation for this, but it´s your standard plastic protection tape with little pimples with air embedded ...) and wrap it around.

    Reached him on the mobile.

    Sounds very honest and reputable. I didn´t know the sign is made of transparent plastic as it is illuminated by fluorescent tubes. So "Luftpolsterfolie" is not an option. He again told me that they had difficulties getting the appropriate packaging. But now they found a solution and your sign will be shipped tomorrow.

    Congrats on the cool sign, maybe I should look for a similar one for my private rehearsal room!

    If I where you I wouldn´t be worried :)

    Thanks,

    Like I mentioned everything seemed fine but I was getting uncomfortable because he kept promising ship dates then not responding. I really appreciate you calling and making sure he is on the "up and up". I can't wait to get it and I think the wait is also causing me be excited. It is THE sign from the actual dealership the car was purchased from. It is a very rare find for me and when I get it I will posts picks!

    Thanks..... thanks .... thanks
