Never heard of him before.  Do I need to add this guy to my non-bidders list? :?:

He's a semi-legendary rip-off artist whose specialty is multiple user IDs. Well, that and getting smoked out every time by BC ...

Here's 32 pages of his most recent exploits for your reading pleasure:

Yes!

BC is normally spot on with this. All previous incarnations usual MO IIRC, is to build up a bit of feedback, selling standard-ish stuff (as is up now) and as time goes by start selling better and rarer stuff (Was Kobold Hall one of his specials?). Then the wheels fall of and most everyone gets f***ed over.

Forgive me if I'm wrong about this, Brian has weeded out a few scum-bags over the years and they tend to all merge into one.

Nice work Brian, even if you're not doing it anymore 8O

I should point this guy out:



http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.d ... 0184939005



I won 5 blisters from him. He sent me an invoice for $10 shipping. I asked him how 5 blisters at Bulk rate makes $10, and he replied that he had decided to only ship Prio. Whatever. So, I mentioned that even at Prio rates, $10 was excessive. He claimed they weighed 1.5 lbs. OK.........

Guess what I got? A Bulk rate package at 15 oz.

When I asked him what the deal was, he began to whine about how I got the minis at 44% off, and he had to recoup losses. Bang goes the neg.

I've actually had dealings with Dungeon Trader's online store with no problems and actually some good communication. Though it seems even respected online store sellers do try the shipping gouge (Those are for others to say though if they wish as I don't recall an instance with myself)

What I took issue with was A: Offering First Class in the auction and then insisting on Prio and B: Flat-out lying about the weight and cost.

The "shipping gouge" is standard practice at the moment.

I only have a real problem with it if the seller does not post his shipping prices.

The Ebay feature that allows a buyer to search "lowest price + shipping" is a nice improvement.  Saves me having to search through modules being sold for 99 cents, + $6.99 shipping.

The above is one of those strange phenomena that involves the first post appearing after the second, accidental post.  Although the X to delete the post is present, the site will not allow me to delete it because the late arriving first post counts as an "answer."

Very good for internal shipping, I suppose.

But for international buyers, it's completely useless. First because very few sellers state international shipping rates, and second because even when they do, the information is taken from the USPS website and it's completely different from the actual costs.

Then there are those who list one price in the shipping calc and another in the auction.

Came across one seller a while back who had flat-rate envelopes listed as the shipping for everything (even those things that obviously wouldn't fit in an envelope), and then in the auction description mentioned that he'd only ship via the flat rate box at more than double the listed shipping.

Had I actually bothered to bid on those items, I wouldn't have been surprised to have had them arrive in other methods that cost less.
