I ordered thousands of dollars of models from him and everything was fine...
...until it wasn't.

The slapdash packing. The broken models. The missing piece. The missing model (ordered 5, got 4!) The foot-dragging on replacements. The difficulty of communications: the bad english and the broken english. Having to gently "remind" him of his obligations. The promised models that never came. The substitution of one model for another.

This is not the behavior of a proper model source.

Why did I keep going with this guy? He was cheap! And he had everything before everyone else! What could go wrong? As it turned out, quite a lot. But you know the old saying, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me six times...wait a minute, what the heck am I doing using this guy?!!"

It hasn't happened to you yet? Just wait. You'll find out...as unfortunately so many others have.
