Yeah, I wish all my modules had tape on them for protection.

Whatever I can do to help stomp this guy's fire out... count me in guy's

Hi all, just found this site last night, lots of great tips here!  In the past I haven't been much of  TSR collector/seller, just sold them when I got ahold of them with other items.  Lately I've been getting a little more into them.

Anyhow, just reading this thread and I thought the name sounded familiar, this Jonb purchased a couple of "cheapy" 2nd ed sourcebooks from me a couple of weeks ago.   Seemed a nice enough guy, I am always sad to hear about rip-offs on ebay, especially on "my" turf.  I'll def. watch out for auctions by him, thanks for all the great info!

It is only a matter of time before ETC finds this site as well. Then we will have another Maxine situation.

*meh*
And I just paid $41 for a copy (albeit without the tape) :(

I e-mailed him when Fez I and Nanorien Stones were up for auction. I asked him if he could take payment in escrow, and pointed out the thread here. That was back when he was a zero rated seller. By all accounts both modules went to David, and I assume everything is fine with them.

Believe me, he has been aware of this site already for years. He posted here when he was the_game_emporium and he had a link to the site on his About me Ebay page when he was the_eastern_treasure_chest!!.

The JonB7839 account has definitely been editted by Ebay or illegally hacked, as the members profile has a total of 103 feedbacks but only 99 positive, and 1 neutral comments suggesting, three feedbacks were removed. Also the feedback range from April 5-26th 2005, but his recent rating history show an identical 99 positive and 1 neutral, over a Six and Twelve Months period. Also the member joined March 20th 2005. These particular anomolies would be apparant to experienced Ebay users, who would question the irregularities and act accordingly, but a new member would be attracted with the positive feedback.

In Britain normally issues can be raised to a independent regulator of the industry or market to whom adjudicate or investigate compaints, anomolies, or loopholes in the laws. If Ebay are part of a regulatory body in America, maybe the whole saga could be reported, and investigated. Otherwise more Ebay members will be unscrupulously deceived by this user.

well funnily enough i was once given feedback which was an utter lie and totally unjust and when i asked ebay to look into the matter, the reply was pretty much "shove it up your arse, thats how it is", so i kinda just left it really. amazing how ebay can do it when they want to isnt it?

Well, he's started.  Here comes the beginning of the end.  His first neutral, and just like I said, it's for shipping late. Soon his board will be filled up with excuses having to do with illness, school, family problems, mother in the hospital, computer viruses, etc, until he finally disappears again.  Buyer Beware.

Shipping was the main problem. Item recieved was in great shape.

Just as a confirmation, Ebay did in fact delete that feedback. What a crock of sh*t. It is not the first time that I have seen them do it, but the fact that are protecting a known thief makes it that much worse. :evil: :evil: :evil:
I think the feedback giver may have jumped the gun a bit and that is why they removed it. The key is to wait at least a few weeks and then blast him foir theft. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
I agree with BadMike that the end is now starting..................
