here is cougers pre-generated email and my reply, reply being on top.

M-Bag not offered nor will it ever be.  Read an auction before you bid on it next time.  Air or ground only options listed and over 4 pounbds evrything goes parsel no exceptions.  BTW if you havem't noticed I have BLOCKED you from my auctions, and this is one of the reasons.  "They are not insurable but all my internet  purchases are covered by my credit card so no worries.    I have had well over 500 of these now no problems no claims. "  How come you have all this negative feedback left for others "no parsel"  

I have sent an invoice for the two items you did win before I blocked you. I still expect it to be paid and your being charge the same shipping amount as anyone else.  I also have the same feedback policy as you do feedback is left after trasaction is completed.

And I notice your using buying a ton of used stamps off ebay hope you don't get caught using them because in the USA you go to prision for a very long time for screwing the post office.

Have a nice day

INTERNATIONAL surface  M BAGS;   ($1 per 1lb)

Ø       I have noticed that some packaging techniques leave a lot to be desired.   Please box them inside the M bag, books alone don't survive, please pack out boxed sets with other books where possible to prevent crushing.    Using a huge box without cutting it down and filling it full or paper or inflated plastic bags is really useless.    A smaller snug fitting box cut down with minimal packaging is best please.       They are not insurable but all my internet  purchases are covered by my credit card so no worries.    I have had well over 500 of these now no problems no claims.

Ø       AND please include your ID & item number(s) so I know who to thanks/leave feedback for, thanks.  

Ø       AND please include ITEM NUMBER(s), &  your & MINE postal addresses on the internal box as I have recently had two boxes arrive sans M bag so that's the only way of knowing who from/to.   STATE NON EBAY IF NOT EBAY PLEASE.

lol I almost felt sorry for the guy......
here's his reply

no worries - i thought I had asked about m bags before bidding but obviously not, surface will suffice thank you.  no need to be nasty is there?
Being a TITANIUM powerseller I pay pal for everything all at once, once or twice a week, so as our auction finished yesterday, I'll get to it asap.
most of my feedback negs come from one buyer who had one item not turn up so left all 12 items as negs,  one M bag recently has not turned up, could be the seller not sent it?  my statement is still true.   they are good & cheap.  as long as waiting 6-8 weeks no worries.  

The stamps are for my girlfriend who collects them the rest are for charity, i send my stuff out from UK, by POST Office, I am well known in there, I send 200+ parcels every week and pay tghem for the stamsp,  but thanks for your concern,

I think you got me wrong somewhere along the line, but its your right not to sell to me, although i do notice several of  my fellow ebayers ARE allowed to bid?

I will have a nice day thanks, you do same

I think that's the idea, btw.

Liar... :twisted:
(And nicely caught, too!).

You've seen how high he bids on 50-100 same-value-multiples of current unpostmarked stamps and nothing else.

So he expects us to believe he pays 25 pounds for 100 * 50 pence stamps without postmarks, say, gives his girlfriend one copy and then donates the rest to charity... when he could have saved £24.50 by buying one copy fresh from the post office, licking the gum off it, and given it to her like that.
(Or maybe she's allergic to cougar saliva? ;))

He's taking you (and the rest of us) for fools, <draco>.


Wonder whether the coug has wised-up, though; he's still got bids in on quite a few more bundles of stamps, but is highest-bidder on none of them, as far as I can see...

My question is "What the hell does a charity need with old, already used stamps?!'

WTF, do they hand them out to people at soup kitchens as a garnish!? :roll: Oh, wait, I know, I've got it, the charities are the ones who re-use the stamps to defraud the postal service, yeah thats it !! 8O 8O

EBAYERS?! Now WTF does that mean? If you sell on Ebay, EBayers buy from you, period. If Ebayers don't buy from you, you dont sell anything!! Amazonians don't buy from you, they buy from people on Amazon. :wink: Somehow, I think that statement was more meant to be stated as "Acaeumers" :idea: Or maybe its just the other "resellers" he was referring to earlier, you know the ones who are conspiring to keep from the top of the Ebay D&D seller heap (you know who you all are :wink: ) Christ, were does he come up with this stuff :roll:

hehe what piss's me off is I'd like to restock some more modules keep some varity going with the billion hardbacks I still have to sell but can't find any lots he doesn't have his paws on.  If he can't get it cheap he bids it up to a point where I have no idea how he could make any profit off of it.....

Well I dunno any other resellers that do buisness like he does, all the guys who resell here that post seem like decent people...

At least before the kitty anyway.

Still, I can't stomach all the VOLUMES of stupid story where I have to almost search with a fine toothed comb to finally locate the ONE line note (If that) directly about the item being listed....  :roll:  :roll: PULEEZE, get to the point bubba... ooops I ment Guido.... :roll:

Hey Draco, just as a gag you should send him a follow up email saying that another reason that you  blocked him is because he is now a "TITANIUM POWER SELLER".  Tell him that your new policy is to not sell to anybody above "Silver Power Seller " status.  :wink:
