Devil worship, nope that's New Jersey.  Leaf worship up here.  I dunno about where RWilson is at.  Probably a self-worshipping Canuck.  :wink:

Naw, I am as atheistic a Canadian as you can find when it comes to the good ol' hockey game....the Canucks just make me want to suckerpunch myself into a coma....What a weird team...what with Bertuzzi, the Swedish Twins (no, sadly not a couple hot bitches in stewardess outfits) .....I live on Vancouver Island where the only prayer offered to pagan gods would be the yearly mantra "Please Rain God, stop the rain, it's been eight months in the basement with the shotgun in my mouth waiting for a bit of the sun..."

Actually those "auctions" aren't really auctions at all. They are set up for the purpose of Feedback boosting. I guess since his service sucks and he steals from people too, the best way to boost up your feedback total is to buy into fake auctions that are actually against EBay's rules. :roll: Not too surprised here........

So, who all sent a message to the poor sucker seller?  You don't have to admit it.....but I did.

All I did was send the seller a quote from Coug.     8O   I let him speak for himself.  No need for a comment from anyone else.

I suppose he does what he did with me (but for a much lesser amount). He sells a huge lot, charges for shipping costs, then the lot mysteriously fails to arrive, he refunds the lot price but not the shipping cost, because it was clearly not his fault. So he keeps the S&H fee and the item. I suppose auctioning a big lot was necessary to justify a ludicrous SH& fee. Maybe he ran out of bucks?

This thread need a bump anyway.  Take a look at this numb nuts:

Dungeons and Dragons Books | eBay

He also has some other auctions up with absolutely ridiculous shipping costs and less then $1.00 BINs. If you ever wonder where a seller might come upon a 95% feedback rating, well then there is no need to wonder any more. :roll:   If it wasn't like ass hats like this guy, this thread would have died long ago.

eBay listings

The guy from Ypsilanti Michigan who stole a bunch of people's money (including Marlith's) back around November is back up in operation again. I would strongly suggest avoiding this seller like the plague. This guy seems to be the newest albiet different version of jonb. This one just happens to reside in Michigan and not Virgina and could care less about auction descrition.


Update on this guy seems to not bode very well for some buyers out there. This guys auctions started ending around 3 weeks ago and he still does not have one single positive feedback.  Seems like my prediction is soon to be fulfilled...........

The low BIN and high shipping seems a clever way to stick it to EBay.

   They'll still get their PayPal percentage, at least.

    IF this guy were not someone who is likely not to actually send the goods, this seems like a good plan.  Right?

The problem with this sort of thing is that you're dealing with sellers who are obsessed with "sticking it to The Man" — not surprisingly, this sort of person usually turns out to be less than reliable when it comes to basic customer service.

Also, from an eBay-specific perspective, this sort of plan can backfire when you run into buyers who do not bother to read the shipping terms (who think they are "getting something for nothing," in other words). For instance, a close look at this particular moron's feedback shows some negatives that, frankly, are undeserved — the buyers were just upset that their practically free goods turned out to not be so free. Not that I'm going to defend this clown too much, as his ridiculous shipping quotes and 95-percent positive feedback ratio speak for themselves.

Well, it's reportable...

Report this Item --> (menu)
Listing Policy Violations --> Circumvention of eBay fees --> Excessive Shipping and Handling


Unfortunately, with their Verified Rights Owner (VeRO) Program only the intellectual property rights owner can report potentially infringing items, using a Notice of Claimed Infringement (NOCI). So publishers have to monitor eBay and do their own complaining... not very easy or cheap. :/
