PKMNCollectors, in light of how many of you use this shop and that it is run by some members of this community, I felt it important enough to post here that you should NEVER buy from this shop and immediately open a dispute with paypal if you have any pending orders
PokedollUSA has been stealing from and ripping off customers since February, and the owner, pokabubu
, has opted to keep customers' money, not reply to their inquiries, and was also caught deleting negative comments left about the situation. You can see examples of some of the complaints on the link above.
Currently, the site is STILL OPEN and is STILL TAKING MONEY FOR GOODS and unknowing customers are buying from them without seeing the complaints on Facebook
. Thanks to a responsible person with admin access the site luckily HAS been closed for orders.
In the future, instead of a shop with a shady offer of having items shipped from Japan to themselves and then to the customer, I recommend using services that send customers their items directly from Japan without this middle step. Long-standing, reputable shops like Pokevault offer professional, fast service and a huge variety of stock, and using deputy services you can buy items yourself right off Yahoo!Japan, Amazon Japan and Rakuten, to name a few. Please avoid shops like PokedollUSA that add in a pointless extra shipping step and extra weeks of waiting for your items, when there are much easier and more trustworthy ways.
Until next time, and good luck to all involved.
