Hi all!

Just wondering if anyone here has had experieces with vendor in Ukraine referenced in title? I have a friend who is considering buying from them and cannot find any info. Would love to hear if anyone has feedback on them.

Cheers, all!

I've purchased from this guy/company, on e-Bay, numerous times, without issues: Eugene Lemeshko. He is in Ukraine. I have purchased numerous sets of Red Box 1/72 plastic fantasy miniatures sets from this vendor. Always had great results, and zero issues.

I do not know if it is the same person/company, but I highly recommend this seller, if they have what your friend wants.

By purchasing through e-Bay, my payment information never reaches the vendor. I use PayPal, which interfaces with e-Bay. The vendor never sees my CC information, nor my banking information. I have both PayPal and e-Bay, as firewalls between me, and the vendor.

I sold products through the Internet, back in the early 2000's, using PayPal for payment. Had a customer contact me about their CC being compromised, and asking me about it. I told them I had no idea how they had paid me, other than that PayPal deposited money in my account, on their behalf. I had no idea if they used a CC, or their PayPal balance, or something else! I never saw anything but a deposit notice, from PayPal. PayPal handled all of the money transfer details, I just collected their money. I trust PayPal, have used them since around 2000, as both a customer, and a vendor (2000-2008). Cheers!

Sgt. Slag, thanks, that is very helpful!

I've had direct sales for 1/72 miniatures from Taiwan, as well, through e-Bay. Never an issue with them, either. Using PayPal, your friend will have plenty of protection for his payment method: CC, bank account, etc.

Aside from that, try a small order, as a test. If it goes well, try another order from them. PayPal has great buyer protection. Had a deadbeat seller I sent money to, on e-Bay, back in the early 2000's, whom I paid using PayPal. He never sent the goods, so I filed a complaint. Got my money back, easy-peasy. Cheers!

I think I may have. It's been over a year ago.
I ordered some 1/35th scale figures. It took a long time to get to Las Vegas, maybe a month or 5 weeks (no tracking) and the sprues were removed from the boxes and squished down to save space. Everything was OK, just had squished retail boxes.
