I did a search on the forum and didnt find any mention of it elsewhere.  Based on what I read and saw in the linked .pdf, actionseller99, AKA Jim Shipman of Outlaw Press may be someone to avoid on Ebay.  Not that he screws buyers out of their money or doesnt ship merchandise, but apparently he has been using artwork in his products that isnt his to use.

I dont know about anything other than what I read, but if this is truth, the guy deserves zero support from me.  If anyone else affliliated with the industry knows anything more about this I would be interested to hear it.


Based on this new information:  viewtopic.php?t=9610

Anyone thinking of buying stuff from this asshole should definitely reconsider.  I don't care if his stuff is quality or rare, I wouldn't bid on principle alone at this point.  :evil:

The seller to which King refers has an eBay handle of selling4u2.   He currently has 153 feedback with a 100% positive rating, though that will take some hits if he has ripped off more people than TFM/Kynan.

Show caution when buying any counterfeitable Tunnels & Trolls items.

[Edit:  And he is also illegally selling print-on-demand T&T books using Amazon and Lulu.  Ain't technology wonderful?  :roll: ]

I had problems with a recent purchase on Ebay with seller, lisas_stuff_too. Paid for item about a month ago, and never received it. Does not respond to emails.



Just negged her, and noticed she has a lot of recent negs....

Name rings a bell from here - can't remember if there was ever a good reason for the shipping delays. (and my search skills are letting me down :( )

I'm sure I saw that name a way back with dead relatives and various other excuses, think it was the sellers third re~incarnation too!

Something like that - might have been a spouse at war as well IIRC. (don't get me wrong, not doing down the service of ones country, just doing down people who will always find an excuse, wether it be false,true, good, bad or indifferent)

Thats because this seller is a rip off who has been tagged here on the acaeum for, what, a couple of years... they show up, sell some decent stuff, then rip off a bunch of customers.  Someone link the relevant thread, I can't find it.

Hi, I'm a newcomer to the site; any short-term forgiveness is appreciated for protocol lapses. This is the first forum I've registered on, and to everyone: Thankyou. It's great to know I'm not the only one running into collecting concerns.
I also bought something from Lisa, and I waded through the drama for about a month/monthX1.5 before I got My_Stuff!
BTW: I'll "troll" the rest of this topic if there isn't a better topic for comparing collector experiences with shady eBay sellers.

I started a paypal dispute with her about a week ago.  She responded and said that her father had taken ill.  Recently I received an email stating that she has shipped the item.  It has not arrived yet.  Will keep you posted.



Puterdragon - you hit the right thread for shady dealers.  Please go to the "Introduce yourself" thread and tells us more about yourself.

Lisastufftoo, as people may (or may not) remember, is the latest incarnation of Game Emporium/JonB/Eastern Treasure Chest, which has a fine tradition of ripping off gamers for almost a decade now......

Thanks for the info. guys, just shows I need to do some more research on the acaeum prior to buying stuff on ebay. All the hassle dealing with these negligent sellers is not worth my time...

There was a post on a previous thread about her, and she actually responded back on said previous Acaeum post (I'll find it later...).



If she's trying to rip people off, she's doing a very poor job of it. Hence, IMHO, she's just an incompetent seller.



Stay away from her.

If you scroll down her feedback you see lots and lots of positive ratings...many of which also complain about slow shipping and not responding to emails.

My guess is that if you wait her out and keep reminding her you'll get what you bought.

Obviously, it shouldn't work like that but she does not seem to be intentionally robbing people.

Agreed.  Less shady than incompetent.  Still, she (?) doesn't offer anything so great that it can't be found elsewhere.

But shady in that it's been proven that this is yet another incarnation of an individual who has so far used at least four names on ebay, all claiming to have nothing to do with the other, yet all living in the same city, using the same item descriptions and photos, using the same phrases when writing, and having the same sad-sack stories when items invariably don't arrive....

I'd say definitely shady......

I am guilty of not keeping up with the revolving name changes.  I have one item on the way now after starting a paypal dispute (actually tracking the item should arrive today or tomorrow).

Given the consistant pattern I believe this person is either schizophenic or bi-polar.

Just to build off of what Mike said, there is no "Lisa".  It's the same guy who has ripped people off through several incarnations over a span of going on at least 6 years now.  They've likely stolen money from well over 250+ people(many unfortunate folks multiple times) now all told.

This person is the definition of a scam artist,  period point blank.

As BC says that is the most disturbing part...there is no "Lisa".  Only a very determined liar/crook/conman that has shown a marked lack of ethics..claiming at various times "her" husband died, "his" brother died (when the name was JonB), an "employee" died (back in the Eastern Treasure Chest days), and various sicknesses and ailments for both "him/her" and various relatives so as to gain sympathy for not sending items and disappearing with money.  Remember, up until recently, it was much harder for buyers to recover funds for items not sent, and this person took advantage of that by stealing money from 100's of folks.

As Martin says, this person may well be mentally ill in addition to whatever other problems they have...certainly as evidenced by the amount of items they have and sales they make they could have run a legitimate online business at any point of this charade, but choose not to...

Wow, I'm guessing the illness. Seems like her/his boundary between role-playing and reality isn't clear.
Let's see, what might it be?: class: rogue; race: doppleganger?
