    I bought from them once, and I did eventually get my order. But I would never buy from them again unless I can pick it up in person or have someone else do it for me.

    As for the OP question, hard to say - you may also eventually get your order, but don't give up hassling them about it. The bad part is that you have no recourse with getting your money back, but you could talk to your bank (assuming you sent it through them) and see what they have to say. Hope it eventually works out for you as that is a fair amount of cash to 'lose'.

    Quoted from metallik:

    I think it's time for a sticky-thread right at the top of this forum - a basic, factual warning about MAD amusement.... at a minimum, warn against for international orders. Considering Robin is outside of the USA, I'd think he'd want to warn his fellow Europeans (and Aussies and anyone else MAD has screwed)

    This, when I entered this hobby, I didn't know anything about MAD (or Pinside for that matter). They happened to have a part that no one else did, so I put in my order. I did eventually get my stuff, but it was a long haul (I think the time frame took about as long as the rise and fall of the Roman Empire).

    If it is pinned, then 'newbies' would be aware - I know there is that thing thing called searching, but not everyone thinks about doing that.
