Default Whats up with Berlin Military?

Back in Sept I placed an order with Nico for a few DDR items, so far nothing has been received and he has not responded to my emails.

I see he has updated his site info so I know he is around.

Anybody know whats going on?

I have not used their site before, but I have experienced the various ups and downs of online trade over the years.

Usually if the owner doesn't respond to your emails and you haven't gotten anything in 4 whole months, you've probably been scammed. I'm sorry.

I guess I withdraw my previous statement. Good to see so many sellers use this forum!

Thanks Venturefan260 for your updated post with your revised comments, appreciated. I am also glad we have a forum like this at times to bring up our issues.

Nico has been on this forum and a valuable East German dealer for many years. I again hope all can be worked out.

No problem.

I just checked out Nico's shop and I'm glad I found it! It's always great to find new places to buy DDR stuff.

I remember the shipping now.
I have to find out what happened.
In my System it's marked as shipped on Oct. 25.
sadly I'm on the leave to Scotland now, so I try to get it solved after I'm back in a week.

Unbelievable. I hope he got fired and that the parcels will be returned and shipped as originally intended.

talked to a friend who lives not far from there, at least he doesn't misses a Parcel.
It was said that the guy is allredy in Police Prison and allready confessed.
For sure, the questioned Prcel of post 1 won't be found there, but from time to time we hear these Stories here.
That happens when you privatise a working State owned business.
Many Years ago I had the problem with late Letters, coming in sometimes near night times. One day I met the guy who told me he's studying, has this as a side Job, so he brought the Letters home, went to University and after this he took them for delivery.
Found another news article, sadly without the Movie Link where somebody filmed a delivery guy who didn't got hold of the resident so he threw the Parcel up to the Balcony of the 1st Floor Flat. Was it Grannies Meissen Pocelaine?
In another forums Thread somebody got something valuable with the Notice that the Cardboard Box was placed in the neigbours Garden Blue Box what was actually the Paper Recycling Bin. Sadly it was the collecting day and he came to late.
My sister send an unliked Item back to the Sender, it was dropped a day later at her Postbox, as it was a Registered Letter, the Label was ripped of and at the website, her "Signature" was visible on the receipt. Bad that she was working the same hour, about 600km away with about 80 witnesses.
She was the Teacher that day at an Universities Course.
I have many of these stories during my business life, it's really boring and time-wasting.
