Guess my request for advice belongs under here.

I bid on an auction that I didn't win.  Then an ebayer with the ID mikefred sends me a message through ebay that he also has the same item in excelleant condition that he would be willing to sell me for my top bid plus 3 bucks S&H.

Sounds like a deal I would be willing to take, but I was a touch concerned that this was unsolicited and was wondering why he wouldn't just list the item.  Then if something did go wrong I don't even have a feedback path to address the issue.

What do you guys think?  Take the deal or is it too risky?

Have him make you a Second Chance Offer through ebay, then you have all of the usual protections and feedback options.

Mikefred has been going wild on ebay in the last few weeks.  I am not sure who he is, but he is bidding on just about everything and every big lot.  (Hmm, I guess I am too . . . oh well . . .  :D )


Anyway, his feedback is great - I wouldn't be surprised if he has many doubles & triples the way he is going.

Three bucks shipping?  The item you wanted?  Offer to pay via PayPal and take your chances.  Unless it was really expensive I would guess you won't be sorry.

Received the R1 Prepub today from Frank (ExTSR). 8)

Fantastic shape, not a blemish. Shipping was quick & great. Almost didn't want to open the shrink it was sent in.

Absolutely fantastic seller - get the feeling I was happy with it yet? :D

Oh by the way if there's still any of the 'shrink-ophiles' out there: new to EBay "shrink: done by the legendary Frank Mentzer" for sale (only kidding) :lol:

Thanks Frank.

Has anybody had any experience with [email protected]?

He approached me with a private sale and I like to know if anybody has dealt with him offline before

The name sounds very familiar, but I don't remember any specific transactions. I am usually a bit leery of AOL addresses.

Based on his email, he sounds like the guy I mentioned about 4 posts previous on this thread.  Ebay username mikefred.

Yeah, thats Mikefred from ebay.



He seems to be an up front honest guy.



I'm working a deal with him now for some of his collection and I'm expecting it to turn out well.



I'll let folks know if anything comes up less than wonderful.

He's not a member of Acaeum, although he knows about it now.  It was a contact from ebay.

Wanted to mention that I just picked up some really nice JG items from Shane (Plaag) in a recent private sale.  Really great guy and as you might expect his Judges Guild stuff is top notch.

Thanks again Shane!  :D

I'll second that.  Shane sold me a bunch of Dungeoneers and other pubs a while ago, and it all went very smoothly.  Plus, he's in Wisconsin.

That was a classic. Trade a few items you really wanted for a few I really wanted. THAT'S how it should be. Mars and I just did the same thing.
I really miss the "swap" days. Too much moneygrubbing for me in the current market.
