What has happened is that the German buyers have tried to send me money, which I have refused and sent them a notice to wait for an invoice from my associate. Fair enough, except the buyers have received the wrong invoice, and the dropshipper is refusing to answer any communication from me. Strange? I think so.
This is a lesson learned for me and anyone else who wants to try this method of income. get everything in writing first. It will save you a headache and probably a black mark on your eBay account. I am pretty sure I will be getting one now on my aged (2003) 100% positive eBay account. Coulda, woulda, shoulda.
