    Watch out for these guys. Ordered an amp cover. Paid with Paypal. No cover. No phone number. No response to multiple emails. Now pursuing dispute resolution through PayPal

    Man it's funny- I'm having the same problem. Ordered a cover for my YBA 300 almost 3 weeks ago. Paid through PayPal. I've sent multiple emails with no response at all.

    I smelled a skunk early, but its so rare that a Paypal merchant tries to screw you. From PayPal's response, I believe we are in group of many. Maybe I am naive, but I am hopeful that PP will be good for the money.

    I had a feeling too- the lack of a phone number had me wondering... I certainly hope things are resolved quickly for you. Looks like I'll be heading down the same road.

    I will keep you posted, but PayPal says it may be a month before they have anything to tell me. I have reordered from another source.

    Here is the really odd thing. I have ordered 3 times from this vendor and love my covers. Two for a couple of 1/12 cabs and one for an ampeg bass amp. There great!!
    But this time I order...nothing , nada , zippo. I get no answers to emails, when the last time around it was imediate ...
    It's been three weeks and no cover. So I've just gone straight to American express to dispute the charge..
    The guy must have been hacked completely...

    When there is no follow-up (a la Dr. Bass), I assume, likely erroneously, that the guy just took a powder with the cash.
    And there have been other nice guys who just walked away.
    Jeff Hale of J Hale Music had a great reputation, but apparently has disappeared...keeping one of my friend's Raezer's Edge cab which he was selling on consignment.

    mdbcovers got me too. Just opened my PP complaint today so see what happens. It was good to see somebody got their money back from these thieves. Crazy because not too long ago I got ripped off by voodooman switches (aka blacklabel switches, switchking, custom switches).After that fiasco, I did some checking and found out they have been ripping people off online for years and nobody can do anything about it. Quick to take your money (including expedited shipping cost), then no contact, no product. I should learn my lesson. Anyway, I just want to keep spreading the word.

    I ordered from mdbcovers and after a couple days I replied to the invoice
    I received asking when my order might ship out and I got a reply but it was them refunding my money because they canceled my order.
    Told me to get my Dam amp cover somewhere else !
    They put this in a very rude way and all I ask is when it would ship out.
    I would not recommend mdbcovers to anyone.
    I would say look somewhere else and pay a little extra if you have to. Just don't order from them.
    You will waste your time and money if they don't refund. I was just lucky.
    Evidently mdb does not want to make money. Poor Business.
