ETC was a long time ago. We're talking 5 years ish. Maybe eBay only keep records for so long.

PM Bclarkie. He has all the info you need. It's be interesting to see if you can add to what we know. There is some ineteresting info on the internet to be found about the relationships between the Callahans, Corvins, etc. in those areas, and it's not a random collection of names. Think we may have a photo of the schmuck also.

On June 19th, out of the blue,  I got this message from her,

Good morning! I was hoping you would be sweet enough to tell me the best way to strip down my minitures? To remove old paint, so they'll be be ready to be repainted.

Please forgive me for bothering you. But you look like you really know your minis, So I thought you would be the best person to ask! : )

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your reply.

I replied and later she thanked me and said she was working on stripping minis.   I don't have that message.   Then on July 3rd I got this message,

Hi! :) I hope your having a nice weekend! I hate to bother you. But I was hoping you could give me some info. on stripping miniatures of their paint. What's the best thing to use...or what do you use to strip the minis of their paint?

I have some that I'd like to re-paint. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much for your time and Happy 4th of July!!

I didn't reply because I thought it might be some weird come on to a 56 year old has-been, since previously she indicated she was using my info to clean minis.   It seems even stranger now, and wonder if she was up to something.

You should have linked her some advice from an Acaeum link... :twisted:

There's no telling what she was up to.  One possibility is that she was just trying to establish a relationship and trust to help her sales.  She could be trying to figure out who's on the Acaeum or not, but I doubt that.  Her sales and purchasing history are primarily with publications.  One characteristic of her communication is that she's bi-polar, sweet one minute and sour the next.  :?

Possibly that she/he is trying to get info or details on things from a wide variety of sources at any one time and doesn't then remember who they have already contacted.

Not sure, but perhaps making a friendly contact leads to "sigh, I can't get these cleaned... would you like to buy them...?" kind of contact, but obviously it would be outside of ebay and they would never be shipped.


Or of course, Shellie is just another one in a long, ever-growing line of mentalists.  :?

Ah, then she's "mental" (to employ '80s valley girl parlance) rather than a "mentalist". I thought ashmire was implying there was some sort of mind-reading involved... I was confused.

Ashmire, that sounds reasonable.    The only other contact I've had with her was as Lisa's Stuff.  I was an ebay newbie and she wanted me to revise a copy of Beastmaker Mountain that I started at, I think,  $9.99 to have a BIN of $15.00 and let her know when I changed it.    She said she would buy it right away.   Thanks to the people at the Acaeum I knew not to do it.

For a definition of mentalist, check out the TV episode of Alan Partridge where he ends up held hostage...

I prefer the dictionary :).

I've never heard of Alan Partridge, but I'll look him up. I watch a good amount of BBC America (where else can you find Star Trek these days..:), and Kitchen Nightmares cracks me up), but haven't come across that one yet.

It's most likely not going to be in there, as it's more a term used than defined (if that makes sense..??)

Treat yourself to some Alan, its a niche humour, but I find it uncomfortably funny... Along with Brass Eye, possibly one the finest docu-news-comedies ever!!  :lol:

Will do, sounds funny.

Actually "mentalist" is in the dictionary, but none of the definitions match your usage, which was why I was confoosled.

Watched it; somewhat amusing, probably would be funnier if I were more familiar with him... Now I get the reference, anyway.
