I had a VERY bad experience with Frogurrr. I had purchased with them on NUMEROUS occassions, always paid promptly and always had them ship from US (where they are based) to UK (where I am based) with no problem.
I then saw two shot glasses that I wanted to purchase, so contacted them asking if they did combined or discounted postage if it was an international delivery as was blocked. When I messaged them and asked why they said that "overseas clients who ask for discounts are usually scammers".
Either they are paranoid or have had VERY bad experiences in the past.
Shame, really, as they usually have a good collection.
: Your post from about two years ago was the one I was referring to. I, also, got through to them with my wife's E-Bay account, asked a question and did get a response (nasty) back - then that account was immediately blocked also. I did check their E-Bay FB and there have been some interesting responses when a purchase has been questioned. But they have a ton of + FB. They have several covered bridge shot glasses that I would like to buy, but can't. Guess I should have ordered them with my wife's ID before asking the question. Since I hadn't ordered anything from them with my account, they wouldn't have had my Paypal info. But my last name is part of my E-Bay ID. Have to see if I can get a friend to buy them. So I am guessing you never got your buying privileges back over these years. Thanks for the response.
: : I was blocked by frogurr a couple years ago when I asked about the size of a shotglass (the close up photo had no sense of scale and the description had nothing). I'd made previous shot purchases from frogurr but they emailed they didn't care: "people who ask questions are trouble, and they didn't want trouble". My wife later bought a glass from them without my knowledge; frogurr shipped it but I think made the connection to me (through paypal?) and may have blocked her too. Since then, I've come across perhaps a dozen or more or frogurr shots that i would have purchased, but i don't bother; they don't want my money, fine, I spend it elsewhere. Good luck, but remember "You can't argue with crazy!"
