Recently did some accounting for 2017 and realized 5 of the 6 eBay purchases from Japan all went back to the sellers for various major faults on (mostly non functioning items). I only buy ones listed in top working condition, always ask questions.

One majorly faulty camera was re-listed immediately for a much higher price and recently I saw someone in Philadelphia listed it trying to sell it (after buying it from Japan she realized she “didn’t like it”)

Today I saw an eBay listing with the exact camera set still for sale in Japan … and double the price

I no longer buy from Japanese eBay sellers
