I got nothing from this one but had some communication from another email. However I was told to expect a refund on Apr 30. Last response received May 24 and still waiting.

Nevertheless, thank you for the tips. I really hope this gets all sorted out eventually.

I知 just wondering someone might know the answer to this. I知 selling a dolphin to someone but when he tested the PCB (Fave) it did not give any signal at all. However, i gave him 2 Fave PCBs to try and both acted the same. It seemed awfully coincidental that both got messed up. Thus, I知 just wondering if someone can confirm that the PCB was shipped with a blank layer?

So, am I the only person still waiting on a board or a refund, or is everyone else just okay with being scammed for $613?

Yes I've been trying to contact the people responsible but they apparently cannot be reached, unless everyone involved is in on this and are just stringing me along?

Honestly this experience has killed my interest in this hobby, I spent this obscene sum of money and waited so long, all for nothing.

Good for you. I couldn稚 be bothered at that point anymore. If one is so desperately in need of the 10%...

Thanks for the link. However I've been emailing Lin, and they in turn have been attempting to contact Shin, and are apparently unable to reach them by any avenue. Shin told me back in 2019 that Lin had refunded to them and they were just waiting on clearance, and Lin told me early this year that they had completed all shipments for the money they had recieved from Shin. This makes me think that Shin is the one holding my money hostage. Shin does not answer my emails.

Lin also said to me that they would attempt to give me a Dolphin v3 if any remained after sale, and later asked for my address, but a few months later reverted to asking if I had tried contacting PayPal dispute*, so I guess that didn't play out.

*For the record, the dispute period has long since elapsed.

Have you tried complaining on their Discord? https://discord.gg/8PJAN5vu5C

EDIT: Sorry, apparently you have known about it. Skipped through the issue and only saw E-mail being mentioned. Still, Kevin is in charge of customer service on the Lin team, maybe PM him.
