    Need advice... Is it safe to proceed??

    A few weeks ago, I won a couple of items on ebay by YAMATO_2007. His Paypal account was not accepting payments due to whatever reasons.

    I just got this e-mail from him but I'm not fully getting the grasp of it and wanted some opinions. It almost looks like he wants me to pay to another paypal account. His ebay ID has changed as well. Is this safe to proceed?

    I know a few forum members also had the same experience with not being able to pay for their wins a few weeks ago. Anyone else get this follow up e-mail from Ichirou Suzuki??

    Your opinions would appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Sili

    Sili,

    My experience on dealings with Yamato_2007 was excellent. Not once, but all the times I bought watches from him. I do feel sorry for him. His problem is that he doesn't speak English. He could be an outstanding seller if he could get someone who speaks Japanese and English to work with him.

    All his problems with eBay, I think, arose from his lack of communication with his costumers, and not because of dishonesty or something like that.

    About the e-mail you received, Ichiro Suzuki was the remitent name in the EMS packages to me. Just for what it is worth. I know it doesn't help much.

    I've the same kind of email. The details of the email all add up (items & his address) but everthing else doesn't (ebay and paypal). For me I'm not taking the risk and I'll wait until he's back on ebay/payal properly.

    I got the same email and also an invoice for the auction I won, when I go to pay the auction it still says :
    This seller cannot currently receive payments.

    I don't feel comfortable sending payment to some other new paypal address that is not linked to the auction I won. I don't think you will have any protection from paypal if things do not go as planned. The other issue is the he made all his feedback private, i guess to mask a lot of the negatives he was receiving, but under ebay rules you cannot be a seller and have private feedback.
    I am with Bluefin on this one and will wait till he gets his act together.

    Sili,
    As you have found, dealing with yamato_2007 is quite a wild ride!! I've recently purchased two items from him as listed on e-Bay. (Casio OCW-M800TGJ-7AJF and Casio MTG-1000G-9AJF - both japan domestic models with Japanese manuals). PayPal used on both - although I believe only up to $200 would be 'insured' because of the negative feedback percentage. First watch (OCW model) just arrived after about 20 days - no tracking e-mail ever received - but had been mailed only 4 days earlier. Second watch (MTG model) - nothing happened for 3 weeks - then got a tracking # e-mail. Watch arrived after a total of 28 days - also mailed just 4 days earlier. Both watches in perfect shape - couldn't ask for better products - but I must have sent 20 e-mails asking 'wha hoppen?' - nary one reply!!
    If my experience is any indication - and it seems consistent with other feedback when you could still see it - You can get a great price on genuine pristine merchandise if you can abide the anxiety and possibility of some shipping error. His e-mail seems to indicate he has a new payment address for PayPal and if you pay there citing the e-Bay info, he'll ship your watch. If not, PayPal would probably cover you up to $200 which should be your entire amount - but always a hassle! Simple assessment - you'll get what he advertised - eventually!!! Don't expect communication - any you get is a bonus!
    Not sure I'm helping you to answer your question - but I probably won't use him again - if he ever re-appears and registers to sell on e-Bay - because it's just too nerve-wracking for me.

    Best regards - and good luck.

    I would contact Ebay and Paypal and find out whats going on. I don't like anything suspicious when it comes to my dealings with the 2 organizations, particularly on international purchases. Unfortunately I don't think you have any protection at all through Ebay nor Paypal when it comes to the International transactions.

    Thanks for all the feedback.. You've all been very helpful.

    I figured, I will give this guy the benefit of the doubt, seeing as he doesn't speak much English and by all other reports, he actually does deliver, just takes time.

    I did receive a couple more e-mails (as I also won 2 items) and one was an invoice which has the "pay now" linked to the new paypal account.

    I have requested for a tracking number once he sends the goods. Lets hope they turn up.

    Will keep you guys updated.

    FWIW again. I had yamato_2007 in My Favorite Sellers on My eBay. Now it is a2543251 who appears. He changed his ID.

    Just an update on this. As indicated on an earlier post, I went ahead and paid for the 2 watches. Suzuki san put it on EMS on the 6th of April and it arrived to me here in Australia today (9th April). Very fast, after a long delay initially after winning the auctions!

    I guess for those in doubt, fear not, Suzuki san will come through.
    His ebay ID was changed from YAMATO_2007 to a2543251. Based on the fact that I received the goods after paying for them, I say he made the change for legit reasons.

    I'll post pics tonight if lighting conditions will allow me to take some photos. Otherwise, it will be in the next few days. BTW I got a GW-9000-1JF & a AWG-500J-9AJF.

    I'm glad this worked out for you. You are braver than I!

    I too think this seller could be great with someone to help as an interpretor.
