he also states his phone number as of Feb. 3, 2003

Looking it up, 540 is a Virginia area code.  Guess where the_game_emporium lists their item location as:
Item location:  VIRGINIA

I have been waiting for two months now. I have now filed a complaint with eBay. Does anyone else experience the same problem or did you all receive your material?

I bought something from Game_Emporium on 04/02 and have not gotten anything either.

I did get an email I can post it here:

"Hi, Hal!

This is Jason, I'm helping out James with the Game Emporium. Just letting you know we got your payment and your information, and are currently ALL OVER IT!! I am sorry for any delay in response or if we have already spoken before to you about this order. We just wanted to touch base with you, and let you know that all is well. You can be expecting your package in the near future!

Thanks again,
Jason"

I won a couple of things from him some time ago. I recieved them but only after I emailed him and explained that I would leave Negative feedback if they didn't get here in a few more days.

Good luck
Shawn

Same here. Remember the early print of the Players Handbook with the red flyleaf? The one where someone on the list emailed him and he confirmed it had a red flyleaf? The one where I used the buy-it-now option for $45? I finally got it after 6 weeks and a well placed negative feedback threat. The flyleaf is orange :x

Two eburns in one month! Damnation!

I already initiated a chargeback via Paypal for my long overdue item, even though James at the_game_emporium is ALL OVER IT, as I have NO CONFIDENCE that THIS situation will receive the PROPER attention it DESERVES!
This for me is the last straw. I cannot give him a negative without risking retaliatory feedback, so I am going to create an account and use it strictly for bidding. Longtimers know I did this a few years ago, and this is exactly why.

I was tempted to buy some of his shrinkwrapped stuff when I first started looking but when I went to "view all sellers auctions" and saw everything was MINT, or RARE or SW I was a bit irritated, especially when i would click on the description and it didnt say mint it said "good" or "very good", or "still playable".  

You know dont waste my time, I dont even bother looking at his crap anymore. :(

Wouldn't it be nice if Ebay had 'kill filters' for annoying sellers?

thats what feedback was supposed to be for i guess except unscrupulous people will always retaliate with a negative on you even if its bogus.

Kind of makes feedback useless even though they let you reply to it, no one can ever know for sure whos lying and who is telling the truth.

I won an Ebay auction, maybe six months ago, for S-1 SW from The Eastern Treasure Chest and never received it. I had emailed him several times and was given various excuses why my item wasn't shipped yet, including that he was ill and unable to get to the post office.
I just wrote off the module.

He's a schill :x

Please file comlaints with eBay if you didn't receive your stuff, especially if you didn't leave negative feedback. Experience tells, that eBay only reacts when many people complain. Let's not get this person get away so easily!

Holy shit, why would you not charge it back? That's insane......
I got an e-mail with a tracking number today. He claimed he would NEVER try to stiff anyone, and ALWAYS sends out items. He is TRULY sorry for the delay. At least now he has MANY helpers working for him. So all of you people who won items from him should DEFINITELY see them VERY SOON. Have FAITH.
God, what a fucking moron. Leastern treasure chest.

Ya, you really should file a disupute with ebay or paypal.  You have to do relatively nothing.

EBay or paypal will demand that HE show proof that he sent the item to you.  If he doesnt have any, Paypal (not sure what ebay can do) will remove the funds from his account automatically and give them back to you.  It 's really effort free which is why I always try to use paypal.

Ive had to do this multiple times when I was heavily into buying micronauts.

I also should add that paypal wont wait "months" for an answer.  They give 7 to 10 days and if he has nothing to show you win by default.

I'll file a dispute with Ebay and I'll see if I can get a charge back thru PayPal.
At the time I had alot going on and the loss of $10 seemed trivial. I hate to see him get away with ripping off people.

Isn't that the same excuse he used last time, about being ill?

I have an idea about how I can make a seller kill filter...
But don't expect it tomorrow.

Looks like he's really pissed some people off this time.

eBay Feedback Profile for the_game_emporium

37 negatives. Ouch!  Time for a new account?

I think "The_slow_shipping_and_bad_excuse_emporium" would be a great new name
