I second this, I've got one too. Just have to make sure you have enough funds sitting there for when you are ready to pull the trigger on a purchase.

Citibank declines Pc chargeback and refused to entertain my friend. I suggest you guys consider properly. And yes within time frame limits and he is going through financial ombudsman

Register it to and pay with a Paypal account. Double the chance of protection.

I get the feeling that the size and the paint job, rather than complexity or part count, are the big drivers of the price in this instance. Look at the size difference between Megatron and Optimus Primal in the headline photo: http://news.tfw2005.com/2018/07/09/m...38#more-367038

Except anything after six months if you do pay now , you be screwed.
Trust me, Paypal is not as innocent as everyone thinks.

Nowhere in their Product Disclosure Statement does it mention an offer of a lap dance or anything of that nature.
