    Found a seller on Amazon called GoodRead1 selling a ton of new Anime at £12.99 (Lucky Star CE for example : Amazon.co.uk: Buying Choices: Lucky Star - Collector's Edition [Blu-ray] )
    They only have four reviews dating years ago but they have a ton of stuff, best to search the Anime companies name to look through what's available.

    Amazon have a third party buyer protection right? Cause I'm a tad unsure as it looks too good to be true but I went & took the risk anyhows..

    EDIT: Please ignore. Possible (& likely) hacked account.

    Recently a lot of third-party accounts have been hacked and their bank account information diverted and stuff. This sounds like it might be an example of that.

    Yeah I had a similar situation with a seller such as this, Amazon cancelled the order but the funds have left my account and are in my pending transactions until the 25th. I wouldn't risk it.

    Oh. I had no idea. Would it be better to avoid?

    Yikes, okay. Off to cancel that. Thank you, both of you.

    I don't know. I don't think it will affect you, but it might affect the seller?

    Looking at the age of the sellers feedback it looks like it's an old inactive account that has been hacked. It seems to be happening a lot on amazon recently.

    Attempted to buy the Hobbit Trilogy recently from a Marketplace seller and the order got cancelled due to the account being a hacked one.

    Coincidentally a listing for £12.99 has appeared from Goodread1, last seller was Darkpages, book related account hacking?

    PayPal - On Order
    Card - On Dispatch, but they do have it pre-charged on your account (according to Doc, money doesn't get taken yet).

    You can cancel at anytime. Becareful on what location you wish to receive it because you can't change it otherwise it gets cancelled.

    I suppose I'll leave it another couple weeks then, not really a good week for me to have a pre-charge of that much on my card.

    I think I've just had this happen to me with a JP Seller on Amazon JP.

    Always check the feedback age, and the information of the seller before you place an order. Otherwise you are in for a long chase
