Watch out for seller thenewlighting Fraud Scam Warning

Like if this guide is helpful
It is not often I get caught out by scammers but I have just lost about 30 GBP     42 AU dollars to a Scammer Sam  Ebay title  thenewlighting for 10PCS 9W 3x3W E27 B22 Globe LED Light Bulbs Cool White Energy Saving Lamp.

I took my eye off the ball and never noticed that the 45 days for filling an ebay action was coming to a close I missed the deadline, even worse I let Scammer Fraudster Sam tel me the oldest lie going  "the cheque is in the post" and missed the 60 day deadline for leaving feedback.  On several occasions I was assured that the tracking number would appear in the China Post tracking website dont know why I listened,  " sorry the original item has been lost in the post, yes I will resend by registered post,  the tracking number will show only after several days"  I must be going soft in my old age!    The best thing to do is a seller ever gives you the excuse "lost in the post" and offers to resend, open a case and ask for your money back. You can allways buy from another seller.

The lesson to learn is if in doubt put a item not as described or item not arrived strike in against the seller and open a case as soon as a doubt creeps in. This can allways be retracted later if your money is refuded or the item arrives. Do not listen to any excuses from the seller, just make it your personal policy to open a case and explain to the seller that this is how it is.

And remember if you are buying from Chan Ming Leung  AKA Uncle Sam the Scam is China with ebay name thenewlighting the chances are that you will not receive the goods and he/she will wind you along untill it is too late to open a case or leave negative feedback.
Most transactions on eBay are completed without any problem, but it still isn't an entirely safe place for shopping. However if you pay attention, know the warning signs, and bid carefully, you can save yourself a big headache and make your eBay experience a much better one.
Have fun and stay safe out there in Ebay land and stay away from the con person called thenewlighting there are plenty of more honest sellers on Ebay.
