Talk about stuff that has nothing to do with Ghostbusters!

Hey guys I'm not sure where else to ask, but I ordered some stuff from epic props ebay page in mid Jan and I've still yet to get an update to say it has even dispatched. I know he sent out messages saying he had some family issues to deal with delaying orders but after leaving it another week or 2 I messaged again to get an update and nothing...

Anyone heard anything about where they are atwith orders if they've done business with Epic Props at all?

I bought some Proton Pack spacers from Epic last year, there was a bit of a turnaround time, but I received the product I'd bought in the fullness of time. What were the items you'd bought?

Just a leg hose and connector, it should have been dispatched before the end of January but like I said he had to deal with some personal stuff in that time which has delayed a load of orders. I'm just not sure what to do after leaving it about 2 weeks since he let me know about it, I dont want to keep bothering him if he still has that stuff on his plate to deal with.

I've seen a few people mention delays in getting stuff/poor comms from him in the last year or so. I had some goggle greeblies off him in 2019 and I had to give him a couple of prods for him to get them posted. If you've paid up already I think you're fine to contact him again, if he's got stuff going on then he just needs to let you know that.

I'll give it another week and if not I'll drop him another message.
I dont know if I would be better off ordering through his website next time if that would make any difference?

Probably not, as long as you've paid through paypal goods and services you'll be covered if you need to make a claim.

Yes I made the mistake of buying something off etsy over 5 years ago without paypal, long story short I didnt see that £500 again but learned a valuable lesson.

ALWAYS USE PAYPAL.

The tricky thing is, the leg hose and connector he sells is exactly what I'm looking for in terms of material and general visuals, and other sellers dont quite scratch that itch like this one I'm waiting for. More than happy to wait for it, just a little frustrating waiting on updates.

If it all goes south, I got my connector from Peter at Keymaster Props and I think it's great, would recommend! He does a kit with the hose as well, although I bought clear hose off ebay and dyed it myself with Azo tablets.

Yes I've got some stuff off him before and I have my eye on it as a backup :)
Good quality stuff without the horrific shipping fees :)

I dont suppose anyone has had any interactions with Epicprops over the past month?
Trying to see if anyone else has had any replies or not just to check it's not just me?

The last I heard anything was February 5th when he was supposed to be returning home from a funeral. I am still waiting on my proton pack order.

Yeah that's the last I heard anything too.
I really hate to have to cancel but after a whole month of no replies to any of my messages afterwards, I dont know what else to do. It should have been delivered by the 28th of jan and as of now it still hasnt been dispatched...

I sent messages through all the platforms he uses and there is still an automatic response on his Facebook messenger. I would bet since the funeral they had stuff to do with the estate and last will so it would make sense he has been busy. I’m going to wait a little longer before jumping to any conclusions. He’s been messaging me back through the whole process until this funeral, so I don’t believe he has any ill intentions to screw anyone over.

I'm afraid to say the guy is a con artist. I paid him £800 for a scaled fully working proton pack with a turn around time of 8 weeks. Several weeks later, there were excuses about waiting for parts to arrive and delays with other work taking priority. Six months down the line he stopped taking my calls and failed to return any messages. I never got the proton pack and having spoken to others who have done business with him, their experience has been the same. I'm astonished the guy has managed to get away with it for so long and the site is still running

Well after this amount of time I've had to take my refund directly to paypal. He has until the 23rd to get in touch and resolve it or paypal will do the honors.
