Yes I have dealt with him and no he is not a member here.  I am probably going to confirm for you something that you now already know(thus your rather hesitancy to say ask in the wrong way) but is he is a ass hat.

Well, where should I start?

He has consistently bid against me on damn near every auction I have bid on (which I suppose is the nature of eBay).

The one item I DID in fact win from him I was charged $8.00 shipping for Scourge of the Slavelords and a Greyhawk module. I asked him if that was for priority mail, given the rate, and as of today, still no response (it's been over 3 days).

Sigh.

All it takes is a freakin' email. I'm not a perfect seller, but if my buyers have complaints or concerns, I try to address them. I just hiked up my charge for international shipping (in a HUGE way), but if I get a complaint or concern, usually tender the difference between actual shipping and the amount I charged as a refund.

Why does customer service seem so hard for some folks???

In the last two months he has been buying up older Chaosium stuff and relisting them at high prices usually with an auction price plus a BIN.



Example:

And it looks like the Bloodstone modules are on his list next.

He just outbid me at $42.97 for a copy of Throne of Bloodstone. Bet ya it shows up with a BIN of 89.95 if he wins it.

The quick and dirty on him is that he is a reseller in the mold of Cougarrinard.  Don't get me wrong, I do not have an issue with resellers per se(I actually do a bit of reselling myself so I'd be hypocritical if I did  :wink: ), but Senrocoo is a jack off and the worst kind of reseller.  He has certain items accross multiple categories that he bids on every single one that he finds on Ebay.  Every single one that he finds.  He does this to ensure that one of 2 things happen with the items:

A) He wins the item(s)
B) He doesn't win the item, but the item in question sells for a minimum of $x.xx.  

This is the same tactic that Cougar used to pull exclusively with H1, although it seems he has now moved away form that plan being that it has been a massive failure.  Senrocoo hasn't learned that lesson yet that you can not "corner the market" on RPG items, there are way too many of them and not enough demand.   Additionally, his items are always at the high end of high and his shipping costs are always extremely high as well.  

On top of that, and I found this out the hard way myself, is that if he wins something from you, he will likley steal your picture to relist the the auction without asking.  He won(his last item he will ever win from me I might add!!) a beat up GDQ1-7 I sold a few months ago and about a week later low and behold there is my GDQ1-7 again (at $25 more than he paid for the auction of mine that he won, which was already TOO HIGH as it was based on its condition) with the same exact picture that I took for my auction.  Well, that was the last straw for me, I reported it to Ebay, had the auction taken down and I put him on my buyer blocked list.  I do not begrudge anyone trying to make money on Ebay, but there are certain sellers there that are effectively like the biggest low life Used Car salesmen that you will ever meet and Senrocoo is defintely one of them.  Anyway, the long story short is to avoid him at all costs.

I should have also added that I can gaurentee you that he does not ship Priority, look at this feedback. He got negged not that long ago for his outrageous shipping costs and the buyer specifically mentions that it wasn't Priority.

Wow. I'll add him to my avoid list. Thanks, bclarkie.

I'll wait for the items to arrive and be done with him.

It's nice to hear someone else mention this, as "corner the market" is a pet peeve of mine. It just can't be done with a mass-produced RPG item.

So, please, the next time someone mentions Cougie and the H1 thing, just please, please, please do not type the words "corner the market." It's a myth, an illusion, a fallacy, a dream, a mirage.

*Cough* End rant.

Anyway, BC, thanks for the heads-up on this guy. Give me 15 seconds and I'll have him blocked from now until the end of time.

I probably shouldn't have. But I had to remind him my auctions state that payment must be submitted within a certain timeframe. I shouldn't have reminded him so I could give him neg feedback. I don't like the bloke either. I wonder if he's cougs states contact?

It depends on what your timeframe is.  If its less than a week (or maybe 10 days) it doesn't matter what timeframe you say you have its not valid.  Ebay has policy on this.
