Kind of interesting turn this auction has taken, and I am not even refering to the 2 apparently fake bidders.  That Nocstar bidding pattern really doesn;t make much sense, or does it. :idea:


He sounds familiar.  
Is he someone here??

I see the name from time to time in auctions I follow but I just assumed he was pushing up the bid to see how high it would go as obviously the Acaeum was a fake bid. If he's willing to actually pay the $3200.00 he's a braver man than I  8O

Bah. If he REALLY wants that one, he should place a serious bid once and for all. No sense rising by 25 dollars every time if you know you are ready to pay 3000 dollars more.

I won't. I'm a shrinkwrap collector.  :wink:

The link to the below auction listed below was removed, so I had no luck there either.  Here are the few posts that covered it in the Copyright Infringement thread(MrFilthyIke was a bit confunsed where to post it so he posted it there).

MrFilthyIke's first post back on November 3rd:

Look at that feedback, maybe another Treasure Trove type "seller".  :?


Lordan's response:

Looks like his stock is still going down....his positive feedback dropped 5% from last night when I looked at this thread   8O


and then my post:

bclarkie wrote:I am not sure this belongs in the copyright infringement thread, maybe the shady dealers thread. :wink:   Seriously though, I noticed that guy listing back a few weeks ago and just got a seriously bad feeling about him. He at the time of listing had something like over 250 auctions up and was a brand new user. 8O   It just screamed of fraud.  I also noticed at least 2 other sellers from that exact same town that he is from with low feedbacks also selling D&D stuff during the same time frame.  The worst part of it is if you look at his 2 positve feedbacks that he received, they were left by the buyer before he received the items.  That bidder for some reason leaves all of his feedback upon completion of the auction that e wins and not when he receives the items :roll:  How dumb can people be. :roll:


I can't believe nobody rememers him. He was a brand new EBayer, he was from Ypsilanti, Michigan and he listed like over 300 auctions over a five day span, A NEW USER.  8O  Anyway, one of the reasons that he was able to do so many auctions was because of his total lack of auction descriptions. Every freakin auction was like "Book in good condition." or "Book in Fair condition.  As you can see he is following the exact same pattern as being that every auction is "book in good condition" he has already listed 57 auctions in one day and I gaurentee more are too come. If I had any kids, I would be on their lives its the same guy. Honest. :) I would not go anywhere near the guy.  I am sure that if Marlith pokes his head in here, that he can alos verify the guys auctions being that the guy ripped him off. :x


BC did the guy have photos last time?  I do remember the monotonously few word descriptions of Good (like new) and Fair (Used) I think they were.  Anyone want to bid/buy some items and pay with a credit card through paypal to see if it's the same guy?  You can always charge back the sale if you don't get the item or its not in Like New condition.  I would but I'm saving myself for Jonb's return  :twisted:

Yes he did and they are done almost the exact same way. The only difference in the pictures is that they appear to be closer to the object this time as opposed to last time where they were taken from very far away and were very unclear.

Funny our newbie seller is now all the way up to 237 auctions. :roll:

eBay listings

I also happened to notice this one:

Ad&d Box Set | eBay


Which happens to be the exact same Immortal Rules box set in shrink that never arrived to Marlith. :evil:

Are you 100% sure that is his set? Marlith, is it? If so, we can have some fun with this guy.

He had a Gazetteer up for auction that I want pretty bad.  The price was great with one day to go ($15)  Thought I might take a chance, then decided not to.  I am very glad I did not.

Not if I can help it. :)   Sending the seller a link to Toolhaus.org should help make their mind up. :wink:

Looking even further, I guess Coug can make up his mind about who's fault it is when something gets lost in the mail:

I felt it my duty to drive up Feline's bid... :wink:

But by all means I'll take it at that price should the Seller decide against Kitty  :)

Another funny thing looking through Coug's feedback is that he has 11 mutually withdrawn feedbacks just since the begining of March, 11
