Farnk, whilte we are kicking each other in the nuts here out in public, why don't you explain to everyone ion the forum here why you like to bid on your brother's auctions so much?


** expired/removed eBay auction **


eBay Feedback Profile for ydiduwrite0hqn

I mean, I know you said that shilling is wrong and disavowed it all a few years ago, but how come you keep shilling your brothers auctions?

Some questions about auctions in general

I knew I should have reported to Ebay you back when I had the chance. :x

God am I loving Ebay more and more.  Just so you can't deny anything, Almost 2 years ago and this auction is still up:

4559031170 | eBay

And the sellers instrucions at the bottom of the listing:

you have any questions about the helmet please email me at [email protected]. If you have zero feedback please email me before you bid to let me know you are serious. Please feel confident as I have sold several items on ebay and have only positive feedback. I will only sell nice items on ebay so the buyer can get very clean stuff



Hmmm Joe Farris, how coincidental that your last name Frank is also Farris and he also lives in New Hampshire.   Interesting..... and bids in just last 6 months on several of his items??? I guess shilling still isn't that bad in your mind after all. I just wonder how many other people that you have bidding on your auctions trying to jack up the price Frank? Hmmm...

I thought the definition of shilling was pushing up a bid, not WINNING a bid. Sorry, I'll adjust my line of thinking. Shame on me for winning his $100+ items in order to leave him positive feedback and get him started on eBay. I swear I will never help a noobie again.
I tossed around whether or not to post the PDF, until I was pointed to an old thread you wrote about that very item, questioning the morality of selling it. I would have thought you would mention the fact that it was freely available in the auction. I can see asking a fee for the printing and binding, but not mentioning it at all is somewhat deceptive, no?
truth to tell, I didn't even realize straightaway that it was your auction. I was initially amused at the fact that my own printed copy of Gallery was sitting on my study desk when I pulled up the auction. Sorry if I ruined your day.

Sometimes the shilling goes wrong and people do not take the bait.And then you partner in crime gets stuck with an unwanted auction win!

This is his 3rd attempt.  The first auction ended at $150 with reserve not met.  Shortly after the 2nd auction started he added the I have a collector willing to buy these for $500+ BS, that auction ended at $150 also and surprise surprise, they have been listed for a 3rd time.  What happened to the collector willing to buy them for $500+?

I inquired and asked why he didn't sell them and his response was that he bought them for over $650.  The third listing again started at $0.99 with a reserve but I see he has at least changed the starting price to $600.


His SHIPPING price has changed to $600.00 with a $.99 auction price.
What a joke.

NIB = New in box, just like the day it first showed up on the shelves, then they dropped the nuke on it.

Just out of curiousity, does NIB = New In Box, imply original box?  I can start selling stuff NIaB = New In A Box, if it helps.

Hi,

I won a couple of item on Ebay, sold by an active member on this forum.
Postage costs were £7.00 ($14).

Items arrived this morning. Marked postage costs were £2.30
Items were wrapped in bubble wrap and paper i.e. unlikely to have cost £4.70

Is it polite to post this persons ID as a slightly shady seller?

Cheers,
Malcolm

Hi Malcolm -

Have you tried sending him a message, asking about the postage? It could be a simple oversight, and he will happily refund the difference. In the past I've had similar circumstances (not with forum mebers) where the actual postage was much less than that charged. I always message the seller, asking if it was intended that way, and in 2 out of 3 times the seller has apologiged and sent an appropriate refund.

If you don't get a satisfactory response, name and shame.

Regards

Mike
