Hi guys
I'm from Western Australia, and I've been trying to get some genuine parts for my GSR Lancer (4G93T), I posted a WTB ad on Mudah stating my intent to buy some bumpers and fenders, I was contacted by a Muhammad Hasanuddin (Josh Granger is his English nickname apparently). We sorted out a price of 4000RM for a bunch of stuff posted here to WA, we settled on a 50/50 payment, half now, half upon delivery, I used Paypal to pay him the half of it, and was kind of stuffed around for a month "oh my phone got stolen, here's a new number" crap like that. Now he's totally vanished on me, isn't answering any of his whatsapp numbers, or his email :( and I'm 2000RM out of pocket, naturally I opened a PayPal dispute but I don't know if they'll be able to do anything.

So yeh, now im trying to get some of my money back, ive sent 2 months down the toilet stuffing around with him, and I still dont have my parts!

u need to contact paypal in order to retrieve your payment,
paypal's requirement once u have emailed the seller, the amount will appear in your transaction history, if the seller posted the tracking # then paypal will release the payment to him within 3 working days. if no tracking number is available, they will release the payment within 21 days.

btw, how long has it been?

I guess the reason why the seller disappears is because like you mentioned paypal will release payment in 21 days.

So he delayed him for a month already.

Guess RM2K gone and paypal can't do anything I suppose.

Mudah ma.

Btw, Evolutionist, now you can only open a PayPal dispute. But its been over a month, I don't know if they will help but they are normally super fast at replying emails.
Call them, they probably have an Aussie hq.
Dispute time is 45 days, I opened the case on the last day haha. I'll raise the case to a PayPal claim if he hasn't responded by Sunday.

Any of you guys know how to get a bumper & fenders to WA :P

As for the 21 days thing. Even once he got the money he still stayed in contact with me for like another 2/3 week . Weird hey

Bro, just report/send the dispute. The price itself for so many parts that would cost more than RM4K in Malaysia. Yet is including shipping for RM4K? Is a total bullshit and obviously a scam.

Just lodge a dispute and get back your money. I guess he is taking advantage of your desperation to get the parts.

Is not that cheap. :hmmmm:

Yeh I had my doubts, but I thought there might still be some honest people left in this world...

Hopefully paypap will be able to get me my money back.

What kind of price would all that stuff posted here to WA actually cost/is it even possible?

Unless u find any items then maybe can get the seller to get stupidcar's help in shipping those items to u. As in using your own ppl to ship your items instead of using seller's one.

Ah ok, I don't know any sellers or people who can ship the items though :/

A lot of sellers are unwilling to sell internationally, they just can't be bothered, even though I'm willing to pay more than what they'd normally sell the items for

Some can't blame them. They as seller are afraid and worried about getting scams as well. As we have many scammers pretending to be from overseas and wanted to buy stuffs from people in Malaysia.

Incuding cars. Too many scams that some are afraid to do so. Unless some Online Shop stated they willing to post overseas then u have no worries. Usually personal sellers are the one a bit reluctant and feeling insecure to deal with people other than within Country.

Nah I'm an Aussie, no idea what 'so jialat lah u' means...

Here, one set of fenders=2000RM
One bumper=2800RM

As for postage, if you could help that'd be great
And of course you'd get some pocket money :P

Carboninmotion only sell RX8 and euro parts, no evo 123 parts

That is because logistics cost too much to ship internationally. More over, goods already in Malaysia is tax paid, shipped overseas means higher cost....:banghead:

I'm not sure I follow on the higher cost bit, how is it more expensive?
If you read my sentence, "goods already in Malaysia are tax paid".
Malaysia Tax system is different, anything for export we keep in boded warehouse so when export the cost is free of tax. Once it is in Malaysia market, tax already paid, and even if we export that we cannot claim the tax back.

The only places that may be cheaper are our chop shop. They import half cut from Japan, dismantle and resell....

The price doesnt bother me, because wherever I buy it from, even if one place is 900RM and another is 1200RM, it's still so much cheaper than here. Even trying to find one FOR SALE is a struggle here, like I said, theres only a single bumper for sale in Aus atm
Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 3 CE9A Genuine Front Bumper LIP AND REO | eBay

~3000RM

The difficult part is finding a way to get it to Western Australia though

Hey stupidcar, is that 1k RM just for shipping? or 1k RM all up? Or are you talking dollars, I'm a little confused haha
I suspect he's talking Ringgit, which is roughly divided by 3.3 for Aussie dollar. So that's about AUD300 for shipping minus customs clearance.
