Beware this guy from Japan


Recommended Posts


We recently made some bad experience with a japanese guy (Tomohiro Mitsuno from Tokyo)-he has at least 2 EBAY identities with tomo-zou and balinss.He mostly buys cheap stuff and want it shipped without case which is usually no problem,but there are weight ranges with or without cases from Germany which are about the same

and it is more in the interest of the buyer to ship with cases therefore.We had to send him various mails and explaining every weight range and he called us names,because he did not understand them or they seemed him too high.

Anyway,he wanted the stuff for resale,so he finally accepted the quotes and threatened us to check the stamps for exact postage we told him otherwise he would contact EBAY and complaint our charges(what is ridiculous,because nobody is forced to buy after knowing these!!) Seems this guy wants us to cover the enveloppes,the handling... (our packages are carefully compiled) which is unacceptable-we also accept higher rates (than stamped) from overseas for proceeding and do not nerve sellers in that way.

Anybody should be warned about this buyer and maybe other guys here made similar experiences with him???

Dieter.....thanks for the information on this guy. I have not dealt with him myself, and from the sound of what you are telling us, I don't want to deal with him.....

Damn he has some nerve complaining about shipping, i saw one of his auctions and he wants $10 for the 1st cd and $5 each additional........With Insurance and Registered being extra as well.......Total ripoff, i just bought 8 new japanese pressings direct from my regular Dist. in Japan, shipping was $25, but they were sealed in the jewel cases and were also sent EMS, he mailed them Sunday and they arrived today......But yes i will definately steer clear of Tomo.....

Very odd...I have never had problems with anyone from Japan. They are usually too nice for their own good, to a fault I mean. I have had the most excellent service from everyone in Japan. Guess I'll steer clear of this guy. I would anyway just based on the ridiculous shipping prices....



Japan buyer to buy from that are GREAT would be bridesofdestruction, Shin from Japan-Trader is excellent, Bandmaster-gr, ddt77, hinomoto1, Kazu1017 to name a few.

I would agree with JL - I have had nothing but good experiences with Japanese buyers/sellers.


Always curteous to the nth degree, always follow through exactly as stated whether paying or sending, etc.


Guess there are bad apples in any country but I have certainly never encountered any in Japan...(knocks on wood)

Hmm, that's strange you guys all had problems with him... Tomohiro Mitsuno has bought CDs from me on numerous occasions and I never had any problems with him whatsoever.


I think the key thing here is, if you are selling to him, everything is great, it is when you try and buy from him is when everything goes to hell........Not sure i really understand that either.....

Same here Stormspell , never any problems with Tomo.


Maybe it's just you Dieter? :whistle:







Hi-I don't think that it is me-to continue my complaint about this person-he discussed with me postage rates

and I told him that he will get his purchase in 2 packages.As usual from him-he asked again and again when he would receive the goods and I told him that they should arrive every day.NOW,he received the first package

and-incredible-he put a complaint on PAYPAL (item not as described!!),because he did not get the ordered quantity.

Logical not,because the order was split to 2 packages which he got to know from me several times!!

This person is a pain-he is impatient like a little child and I can't follow his thoughts - maybe he has never heard of that packages may not arrive the same day???

He may be a good seller-but BEWARE selling stuff to him!!!!

    • Really looking forward to this one.  I ordered the (2) CD set.  I already have the original TFAWIUTB.  
    • No atheist denies love is a thing. It has chemicals that make it happen but that closeness between human beings is clearly a thing and it feels good. It's also an essential part of pair bonding and the raising of the next generation.  You believe in life after death. I do too. I look at it every time I see my children. My part of the cycle of life ends when I stop puffing though.   
    • When it comes down to it, it is the love that matters. I feel the love of Christ in my life. I feel the certainty that He loves me. An atheist says that does not exist, it's imaginary. You even deny love to even be a thing, it's a chemical, it has no meaning. You walk outside, you see trees, you hear birdsong, and it means nothing. I see beauty everywhere I go, the beauty of Christ and His creation. I know beauty can be corrupted. I know evil exists. I know there is death. That is free will, baby. A person chooses to do what they do. Do I care if you believe what I know to be true to my core of being? No, not really. It's like someone saying to me "Def Leppard's Pyromania sucks". I know the music moves me and I love it. With Christ in my life it is that feeling x 1000. If it angers you that I have this love, as it seems to for some here, I can only apologise. It would be like not breathing to deny it. If that hurts your feelings cause once upon a time some church or Christian hurt you, I can just say, don't blame God for the followers. Evil appears in every element. Humans are fallible. Humans do bad shit. I am only responsible for my own soul. Do I want God to come down and intervene in every evil? Hell no. I love that we are free to choose. Forcing someone to love you is not love. Also, how about people be responsible for what they choose to do rather than blame God? You say there is nothing but death and darkness at the end. I know this is just a plane of existence and death has lost its sting. Again, I stress, I don't care if you agree or not. I'm not here to judge you. You are free to choose. I just ask for the same courtesy that you accept I don't share your views and that you can move past your hatred for that choice (not all on this site, just some).
    • Probably the wisest thing said on this thread.  Realistically, we're all in this position.

    • From MelodicRock Classics: MRC008 – HEADWAY (Featuring Steve McClintock) – Headway                                     1CD Limited Edition Unreleased pomp-AOR / melodic rock album from 1980 featuring vocalist and guitarist Steven McClintock. Includes original master tracks plus a couple of live bonus tracks recorded in 1981.    
    • To be honest, it doesn't really concern me if he did or didn't. I put it out there are a kind of olive branch (ie: not everything is completely imaginary and made up) Not many lives were well documented 2000 years ago. Likelihood is that he existed, and had some small amount of notoriety. Was killed and became a Randy Rhodes or Jeff Buckley. A lot more famous after death than when alive. The bibles changed over the years, his exploits became more impressive and eventually  became a demi god. Ironically I love easter and Jesus stories. They make great stories
    • That's really not proven. Opinions split. On the balance of it there is a fair chance he existed but it cannot be proven definitively he did.  His life isn't well documented outside of the bible.  It's long but this is a good video on the topic.
