So why is he no longer registered now?


He is not registered because he was shilling his own auctions. :evil:

I've just become a new member of this great forum and I've been reading about recent ebay auction activity. I was absolutely shocked when it dawned on me that I was reading about a purchase I actually made myself.
It's a shame that the many good and honest sellers have to pay the price for the few that are dishonest and selfish.
I'd been wanting to get my hands on one of these boxed sets for some time and when I noticed one with the 'buy it now' feature I decided I'd go for it while I had the chance. I asked the seller if I had to actually pay for it immediately or if he was willing to wait a few days until I had sufficient funds. He e-mailed me back and said it's no problem but to hurry because there were other people interested, too. By the time I read his message someone had already placed a bid and I noticed the 'buy it now' option was no longer there. I wasn't sure about it so I asked him if it was too late and if not then I'd definitely buy it immediately.
He was kind enough to end the auction himself and take the risk. I ended up paying what the 'buy it now' price originally was. It was in perfect condition and worth every penny. The seller went above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate me and to keep me well informed along the way until it arrived.
As I told him, my only regret is not being able to leave positive feedback for him (especially after reading through this forum).
While I certainly don't blame anyone for being suspicious, I am a firm believer in giving the benefit of the doubt (unless it's a certain ghastly looking, middle aged pop icon preying on unfortunate, awestruck children). Just kidding.


Hi Eric, and welcome to the forum.  I just wanted to point out to that if you read my original post and you look at the bidding history as well as feedback left and locations of all the parties involved, it was a petty clear cut case that that seller was in fact shilling his own auctions. This was pretty clearly done on a multitude of occasions as evidenced by bidding history and feedbacks left both ways.  Believe me, if Ebay wasn't 100%, they wouldn't have acted.  As a matter of fact in some circumstances they don't even act when they are 100%, unless so many people turn in the seller in that they realize that they have no choice.  Oh well, good to see you on the forum here. :D

That would be a very honest response to the usual question. A real bummer if you'd already bought one from him though.

I count myself lucky for not doing my homework like I should have. 8)
Had I known then what I do now I doubt I would have gone through with it.
I guess I've been pretty lucky that I've only had great experiences with eBay so far (including several from you).
Indeed I'm thankful for the knowledgeable people who do and share such research. :)

Darn, if we weren't moving this week I'd bid, but we're leaving for Orlando to live in the next few days. :)

Don't ask me. I'm broke now.
I/O will no doubt be there for you though.
I think he was being nice to me at the end..... think he felt sorry for me a little?

Nawww, he probably knew you had copies too.

High price yes, but you don't see them in this good of condition very often.

This is a very collectable copy
