I recently snagged a copy of this book on ebay.fr for $200. Just got it in the mail today. It appears to be new. Thrilled.

No message received yet, hopefully he's too busy posting them to have time to send a message.
I'll message him and ask for my tracking number.
I take it you didn't resolve this with PayPal then ?

Paypal case is open, I`m just waiting to see if he`s true to his word.

No reply yet. The warehouse must be miles away in another country or something.

If you look at july76's posts, it looks like a legitimate member and not a fly-by-nighter.

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/search.php?search_author=july76

Whether the books will be delivered is anyone's guess. I'm just pointing out that july76 has had a presence here since 2015, and didn't just show up out of the blue.

I've just messaged him again, he has not even read the last 3 messages I've sent him.
I paid for the book on the 4th April so 6 weeks ago now.
How long does he expect people to wait ?

Just wondering - how much was he charging for the book?

I bought this book off Amazon in 2009. It cost $41.97 + shipping. I have no idea what happened to it. For these crazy prices, I reckon I'm gonna start digging! Very Happy
