Why did you not report his ass for theft?


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

I sent an email to Ebay right before the auction ended, in which to this point I have only received an automated repsonse, but nothing further. :evil: I will have to send another one later on this afternoon after work, as my work computer doesn't allow me to get on Ebay

I don't know this is shady or if its just a seller mistake, but this picture in this auction does not match up with what its contents are listed as:
cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... Track=true

I already asked the seller, but we shall see how he responds. Invincible, you may want to wait until I get an answer before you get crazy on your bid

Follow up on this: It appears to be the seller used a stock photo, and doesn't realize the price differential of the different printings, but it does appear to be an honest mistake. Here is my original question with his answer and my follow up:
Thanks for the clarification.  The reason I ask is becasue there are actually several prinitngs of the box set that you are selling.  With the different printings the contents of the box was changed up.  You actually have listed a picture of a 1st or 2nd print box set and the contents that you have listed for indicate that it is at least a 4th printing or later.  You may want to make a note in your auction that the picture that you have listed is simply a stock photo, because 1st/2nd print sets are considerably more valuable. For backup reference, please see The Acaeum.

Thanks for your time,
Brian

Subject: [Norton AntiSpam] Response to your question for item #5186510278 - Dungeons and Dragons Basic set 1970's NEVER OPENED !!!!

Question about your item  

Marketplace Safety Tip  

If this email is an offer to directly sell you an item without bidding on and winning the item on eBay, please report it to us immediately and do not respond. An offer to sell an item directly to another eBay member through email violates eBay rules. It is also extremely unsafe to purchase an item through this email system regardless of the seller's claims or feedback, as you lose the benefit of eBay's purchase protection programs and risk losing your money.  

Dear bclarkie,

You asked:
"Dear Seller, I was wondering about this item that you have listed the picture that have posted does not seem to match what you have listed for the contents. Is the picture you have listed in this auction a stock photo, or is it a scan of the item itself. The reason I ask this is because you have listed a B1 module listed in this box set, but the picture that you have listed would not have that module in it as as it was not until later printings of this set that this module was included."

it is a stock photo i do have some pictures i can send you of the box, i did not post on auction as i tried to get a picture of back of box and it came out blurry. but the front of box looks exactly how i have posted. and on box it does show coming with B1 module. i am not sure what year this is but from research i would say 1978-1980 approx.

Yeah...I know...but it felt good.  I was using almost all of my Ebay emails each day (I would wait until about 2300) and email recent negatives.  I asked them all to report the company.  What a freaking joke!!!  Hmmm...I wonder if he has family in Virginia?? :roll:  8O

Wow. I started writing this post in "Interesting Items" -- then "Laughable Items" -- now it seems I'll need to post it here, having just seen this guy's feedback rating... 8O

Sometimes there's just no explaining something to a seller:
cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&a ... otohosting
The Seller wrote:The picture there is the picture on the box

Swing and a miss. If you look at the picture, you can clearly tell it's a first print photo (I believe it's the Acaeum 1st print photo), whereas the seller describes it as having 1001 on the box and a wizard logo.  :roll:

Now, this could be yet another newbie seller, but who knows.
I'm also getting some wicked deja vu here, this look familiar (see bclarkie's post, above)?

Once again, just like the other seller, it is also described as having B1 in it which means at best its a 4th printing. :roll:

Has anyone noticed that the seller keepontheborderlands, who ostensibly was selling his Warriors of Mars due to money issues, is now buying up D&D items? It still amazes me how dense some people can be. They truly think that just because no one can see them face-to-face that their motives and lies can't be figured out. Shit, if anything it is EASIER to debunk someone online. There are thousands of people watching every move.

This gets more ridiculous by the minute. This guy left me positve feedback today for the most recent auction that I won, but I never paid for it(unless of course you consider the first time I paid).

feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?View ... amp;de=off

I have a sneaking suspicion this is probably a delay tactic so that folks dont realize that they are getting ripped off. :evil: Worst part is, he never even responded to my follow up email in regards to the invoice he sent him, saying he stole from me. :roll:

It could also be that he left feedback in the hope that you would reciprocate in a positive manner without realizing you had not received the item as of yet  :roll:

And what are eBay saying about all this? I suppose they gave you the usual line about them not giving a [email protected] because they've already got their cut?

So far, all that I have gotten is their BS form letter from them saying that they are examining this matter and will take approproate action depending on their investigation...blah....blah....blah............... :roll:

Well, I got a second message from him as well. Here it is, as well as my response again:

Well for somebody who has such a fantastic life and all, you sure do seem to have a lot of time on your hands to be emailing everyone your pathetic attempts to try and fit in. . It seems maybe you should focus more of your time trying to get laid, because it is pretty evident that you dont get laid much now, and it certainly doesn't seem to help sitting at your computer and sending unsolicited emails to people you don't even know through EBay. So keep up the good work there pal it may work out for you in the end.

BTW, You are a shill.

no, I bought from someone who bought from me. But poor Frank just sits there and watches my Ebay and waits. I always put him in his place. Its so easy :). But after I found out what you guys do, I had no idea how pitiful you all were. Ya, that be great if you just sit there at your computer and watch my Ebay while Imp out getting laid! Oh and make sure to tell killjoy32 not to cry about me out bidding him on auctions. Just let me know what items he is bidding on and I wont bid. It's just D&D stuff. no big deal. aww man, I just cant stop laughing at you guys. I had no idea how sad people could be. Well, hopefully you will get a life. I really do hope you the best. It looks like such a sad life you guys live.

Good luck and god bless :)
