this is why i went via paypal. If it doesn't arrive in 3 weeks i'll dispute and order a more dev like board


Bear in mind that in case of a scammer not using eBay, PayPal will only give you a refund if they can recover the money from the seller's PayPal account:

Quote
If you didn’t receive the item and you can’t resolve the problem with the seller, you can ask us to investigate by escalating your dispute to a claim. If we decide you are eligible for a refund, the amount you will receive is limited to the amount we can recover from the seller’s PayPal account balance.

Pay with a credit card (even through paypal) and you can get your money back if nothing ships.  There are rules.  Lots of em but...

You need to file a dispute with paypal, even if it is unsuccessful.  If you do not do a PROPER paypal dispute, they will lock your account when you do the one through your credit card company.  Once the paypal outcome is set, and if you loose, you are allowed to do a credit card dispute.  If you are not doing fraud yourself you SHOULD be able to keep your paypal account and get your money back.  In this case, a seller that never shipped you should be able to get through this process.

good luck getting anything from paypal.
They do nothing when you dispute, and claims they have fully investigated and still can't recover your funds.

I get the impression that a lot of people that spent a lot of money are getting very antsy about this. If one were to scam us, they would do it extremely elaborately; making 10 effective units at 3000 each is nothing if people make a bunch of orders for singles, and people decide to plunge in on a rigbox. It is unlikely that they are THAT busy with the few singles that were made on this production run, and that it is that difficult to prepare them to be shipped.

I've heard that only a few of these Rev2 boards were made, with the rest to be done in Rev3 boards. If they are that busy, they could email someone important about it, or set up auto replies. It is really odd.

They can't be THAT busy.
ngzhang on this forum has been shipping his own FPGA. If he can do it, why BFL can't?
Or maybe Chinese are just 1000x more serious about making money?

Even if the singles end up shipping somebody should get in there and teach those kids how to run a business.

This is true of most btc businesses tho. Young and wild yet.

I just want to officially say that I see BFL picking it up and starting to do things right.

I personally believe they are not a scam in any way and are turning around the poor customer service they were offering early on
