Well - against all your advice, and my own, I paid the money
I did however contact Paypal first to clarify whether I was covered and I must say they were most helpful, even sending me a confirmation email to say I'd be fully protected in the event of anything going wrong. Without that I'd probably not have paid up.
Goods arrived today
No time to post up photos yet, but I have taken several as the "packaging" was errr, basic. Some light scratching to one item (pair of "immaculate" car wings) due to being wrapped in brown paper and a wee bit of bubble wrap
Without doubt the worst packed item I have ever received. Will see if scratches can be removed, then consult with my new best friends at Paypal
