This particular error is not a common error, and that is our concern.  I'm happy you're resolving the issue.  We see a lot of mistakes regarding printing info on these books, and we don't get ruffled so much about that.  

We see very few with the knowledge to group the 4th-6th printings together, but the inability to differentiate between a 1st-3rd and a 4th-6th.  It makes us rather edgy.  Were it not for Frank, I think you'd have lost a lot of business today.  Buy the man a beer.

Incidentally, most of us can spot the difference between a 4th/5th/6th printing at 20 yards.  Let us know if you need assistance.

It seems like a clear attempt to defraud the unwarey eBay buyer to me.
Exploiting the fact that once they've paid they're pretty much screwed and you can ship them whatever you like.
It's not exactly rocket science operating a digital camera, and then atleast you would be making an attempt at honesty.
As it stands, your descriptions are as dishonest as they come.

There have been problems.  The man came here and has said so.  That puts him far ahead of 99% of the sellerss that get discussed here.

Yes, and he is fixing the problem before it grows larger.  Time for a new target.   :D

New shady dealer
buzz810

bought this:  
** expired/removed eBay auction **


But big problem is that I never got a refund (have emailed, and now done a dispute..so I can only hope) Course I see this has become a problem for Buzz810 (which is more then one guy: Richard and Drake that I know of) by the recent negative feedback. :x

Freakin got the run a round with these guys, when I demanded my money back, they said they shipped it, but at this point I didn't care so was going to return it if it did come. Well I got it, never opened the package, simply wrote 'return to sender' and sent it back. I thought they'd honor their 100% satisfication in the auction and emails I got, but decided to check if they were auctioning this off again after no refund or response - and discovered they were (along with claiming SW now, and changing the price slightly).

I think I should have scanned this envelope before just sending it back (so I can claim I at least got it before sending it back to them.) Isn't much money to loose, but sucks never the less to be taken.

Tiki Joe.

(Details)

'Ware the poor feedback and purposeful lack of photos. His scam appears to be describing everything as being "mint," then hoping few people bother to call him on it. It's a very Cougar-esque thing to do.

More discussion in this here thread right here.

+++++

Typical Tiki Joe feedback entry:

"Mint my a$$. Pen Traces on back of cards. Accused me of living in Germany. Whack"

:P  :D  :)

Thought I would mention this seller:

eBay listings

I won this auction back on June 28th:


** expired/removed eBay auction **


I finally got the item on Wednesday but had to file a dispute with Ebay because to get it.  After waiting about two weeks I emailed him several times asking for a status update.  Thirty minutes after I files the dispute he emailed me back asking why I filed the complaint.  I explained that he hadnt responded to any of my emails and I havent received the item yet.  After a couple of emails he stated that he had been out of selling for awhile and was not used to all the new rules and regs that Ebay had made changes to.  He said that he would get the item in the mail the next day.  I got the item two days later but the postage showed that it was sent media mail the week before.  I think he was just lying about the whole thing or got me confused with someone else.

This guy has some decent stuff up but only shows stock photos and needs some work in his customer service skills so be careful if buying from him.

wow! tnx a lot king! as a matter of fact i bookmarked 3 or 4 items which i was interested in (he's actually selling several D&D items)...
i had the feeling that it was better to be cautios with this seller due to the fake pics and the "low" FB rating...
now i have confirmation to avoid him!
tnx again!

let me add a short episode i had this week: i bid with the minimum amount on 2 pscape items...
i won one of them while the other had been won by another buyer... the following day i received an email in which i was invited to buy the 2nd module (the one i lost) because he had an additional copy ready for sale (pay attention: both of them where sealed modules)... after a couple of hours i received a private auction with that item...

what your opinion? i don't want be nasty, but i believe that he tried to raise up the price by a couple of USD...

well thats not an uncommon thing. unless the item is exceptionally rare, its quite normal that someone may have duplicates.

for instance i have more than 1 SW of A3, IM2, GAZ12, AC2, AC7, PC1, PC2 and PC3 and a few others. if the price was right, i would offer a 2nd chance offer to offload one quickly.

nothing wrong with that?

yes, you're perfecly right.... but... i'm referring to a common adventure module ("in the abyss") for an absolute low price (9 USD)...

that's why i started thinking bad...

IF you want it and the price is right, why not?  The second-chance price should be what you bid...not the other seller.

    However, every second chance offer I've gotten I felt the seller had shilled the auction.

    I nicely explained to one seller that I had been bidding hoping to combine shipping, but that the one other bidder who drove the prices up on all three items had prevented me from completing my plan...and that the remaining two items were now less valuable to me because they were not part of a three-way deal...so whoever had bid the price up fraudulently had wrecked the deal for both of us.

    I hope she took the hint.

What an idiot. Can you believe my snipe was blocked? Apparently because I had a negative? I had a $50 snipe on this and Tower. He just cost himself over $50.

This seller also blocks anyone that resells, this might be why you are blocked.  He has Bckarkie blocked for this reason, probably me also, never have checked.  He's basically an idiot, no other way around it...read his Terms of Sale, enough in there to scare you away.
