Default Ebay seller Modelarena

Hi - does anyone know if HK Ebay seller Modelarena has a shop? Or does he post here?

I've been blocked from buying his models online and I'm not sure why. I reached out to him to ask why and he didn't respond. It is a shame as he is a great seller with amazing prices and as I pass 400 models in the 1:200 military sphere, it would be good to be able to buy from him.

I'm assuming it is some mistake or confusion, i'd just like to reach out to him to see if we can sort it out?

Anyone know?

Isn’t Modelarena the eBay store for Lacorun ?

Have you disputed or gotten a refund for anything from them before ? That is typically why they would block you, legit claim or not. Basically there butt hurt and that’s their childish way of getting back at you for knowing your rights as a consumer. It’s also a practice of some Asian ebay sellers to block buyers before they can formally dispute something with eBay.

Just perusing the forum.

How does blocking someone deter/stop a eBay dispute process? If you buy something from someone on eBay - you must still have Buyer Protection?

It doesn't, otherwise every seller will be at it and ebay shutdown a long time ago.

That's what I was thinking too.

Trust me, it is possible. Not if you have raised a dispute but if you try to work it out via messages, this happened to me once with a dishonest seller in Singapore who had a lot of 1/6 Dragon Figures and parts, almost all his stock was damaged, as if he’d stored the models in a humid tin shed. Anyway he’d admit they were defective, go around in circles about making a refund or send me a replacement and then after a month I was blocked. I should of just raised a dispute but sellers will tell you that alone will give them a bad rating with eBay, obviously that was a BS tactic. It was just dumb because as if I’d bother buying from him again anyway

It's only possible if you never open a Dispute. Know your eBay rights and know how much time you need to do this within.

You should always use the Dispute process that is in eBay - otherwise time runs out and you're screwed.

I can assure you that there are all types of these Sellers out there - everywhere - not just some Asian ones.

Yeah I don’t try to work anything out via messages anymore.

Oh of course, didn’t mean to single out asian sellers like that, only because of the subject of this thread.

I used to use Lacorun a lot till I asked him to inspect an old model he had in stock (guessing there might be a reason it was still in stock) anyway I got the model and it was obvious he didn’t bother or knowing sent it with a defect, he was rather butt hurt I didn’t just accept it as is, after all I did ask him to check and as some who dropped 100’s of $ quiet regularly, I though it a simple request and the only time I bothered him with such a request. Haven’t bought from him since, maybe I’m blocked too lol

The most important thing is to always put it on a credit card -- a real credit card and not your debit card. It doesn't matter what eBay says at the end of the day as long as it's on a credit card.


I had a problem with Priceline once and I've never used them since. I booked a 3 Star hotel with a name your own price. Now I realize that you get what you get but what they gave me didn't even meet the basic requirements for what they consider a 3 star hotel on their own website. They essentially put me in a timeshare that didn't even have a front desk open when I got there (It was only 6pm...).


Anyway, I left and got a room at a real hotel. Priceline said tough luck during their "dispute" process and then I just went and disputed it directly with Amex. Got all my money back.

AMEX is the key. That's my main credit card, and they have sided with me on two occaissions when I disputed reather expensive transactions. They seem to be quite good at protecting their card holders, at least that has been my experience, Doug
