Now I see... :oops:

Does anybody know anything about "trollandtoadstore" on eBay?

Or why they are selling a used copy of Mines of Bloodstone for a $77 B-I-N? Seems a wee bit high to me....

Yup...feelings are certainly mixed on that seller.  I think his prices are really high, but can't comment on the customer service as I've never dealt with him.

I once dealt with Trollandtoad...although they sold under a different name, the listing clearly indicated Troll and Toad.

Anyway...they came through with their part of the sale.

TrollandToad have a reputation for high BIN's on items...but no one has to deal with them if the prices are too high.

I have no personal experience as a buyer from T&T.

Ah, thanks Al!
Well, there you have it. I do know the name raises flags when I hear it.

TrollandToad was the seller that Frank Meztner personally vouched for.

One issue with T&T was that they had ripped off some of their stock photos from the Acaeum and other websites then listed in their auction specifically that these pictures were there own and that you could not use them.

Another issue, was that they had a separate account that seemed to buy a couple of their own auctions, apparently for testing purposes, but they also left themselves positive feedback.

Communication does seem fairly good, but prices and shipping prices are ridiculous high.

That would have been a tourney mod. I recall now.
To be honest, I don't care if Mother Theresa vouches for someone. I go by personal experience.

Its a shame Frank has stopped visiting the Acaeum.
