Caveat Emptor!

Postby MR-SigS » Wed Jan 10, 2018 6:25 am

It seems we do not have a 'blocked eBay seller' thread in CG. If you know of a seller (doesn't have to be eBay) that needs to be avoided due to questionable practices, or of a discussion in another forum, PLEASE post it here.

Links would really help.

Solidarity, brothers and sisters!! :grouphug:

On a side note, what the heck is up with Oregon area?! So many scammers there.


I've noticed this years ago. Oregon needs more industry- It's all gas station attendants, food servers, and cashiers.

Fortunately, no one's messing around with the cheap crap I buy.

It doesn't say in the title, but the description states "reprint" and "Cover price $2.99" 3 times.

Hulk 181

Check out his "Silver Surfer Vol 1 #1"

lol Wow, how blatant can you be for ripping people off? He leaves the "t" out of reprint so if you are doing a search for the world "reprint" in his listing, it won't show up. Donate to Evangelism with this copy....fucking douchebag.
thanks for bidding on this issue
we ship this Hulk 181 reprin very fast


Stu....destroy this guy, and that charity while you're at it

Edit: Ok, so it's only one time the "t" was left out. Still a deceptive listing. Also, one of the pics shows this thing has been graded.

donho wrote:and just for fun I checked out the "charity" it appears it was just created. it is on crowdrise or wise and so far has 0 donations, and the other references were for yelp reviews with no reviews of course. so in essense it seems the 25 percent will go back to him I think

The problem with these lists is there is no vetting process and you only get one side of the story. I know most people simply want to look out for fellow collectors and their hearts are in the right place but if you are blindly blocking people based on what one random person on the internet says, then I don't think that's necessarily the right thing to do. That's a lot of faith to place in the word of someone you don't know. Totally different story when it comes from someone you do know or are friends with or if it's a seller with a known history of d-bagginess
For shame doc. Huntin' rabbits with an elephant gun.
Ewephant gun?
That's right doc. So why don't you go shoot yourself an elephant?
