If anyone is thinking about purchasing anything like netsuke from anywhere in Hong Kong or China then you need to be aware that it is most probably a copy made yesterday !! and not an antique as the write ups suggest.Because these items are usually being sold for very little money the profit for the seller is being made up on the inflated postage costs.! If you do decide to buy you must be aware that if the items are lost in the post then you will most certainly lose all the money that you have paid.There are other pitfalls,I recently won a number of items and after i had paid the original invoice in full via Paypal the seller told me that he wanted more money for postage.!! I was appalled and after reporting him to Ebay and Paypal i thought they would sort it out.!! that was a joke and after a couple of weeks stress i decided to just pay up and forget it.For the first time ever i left neg.feedback and if you take a look at my feedback you will see that i got retalitary rubbish in reply.!! There are a lot of sharks about unfortunately.
