Huh?

When did this happen?

The only thing I remember along those lines was when you and Dark Seraphim had a falling out and without getting into the gory details that had nothing to do with the Silliest Price thread.


Silly I know, but I did my homework, easy enough to find out thru Google & Toolhaus...the sheer tonnage of people I won't let my Bro deal with is huge...sketchy, nah, don't think so! Hell if it was up to me I'd not ship to some states in the Union.

Suffice to say; "If your in the MOB, you sure as hell souldn't talk about it!"

Oh what I meant to comment about was; "Run outta here?" Please, got better things to do than worry 'bout  bunch of dudes complaining about shipping, buying, and life not being fair...sheeesh!


The bankers have nearly ruined the world, but we'll bail them out and they'll be kind enough to lend us our own money back...with interest...

Here's another Ebay seller to avoid:  donnabrasil



The seller has this item listed:



http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0317555055



but previously sold this copy:



http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0317558687



The picture is of the "actual item on hand" but is the same in both auctions so I asked about it.  First she said it was a picture of the actual item, then she said she had two in the same condition, then it was "one that was sold is not in it's original shrink wrap and has been worn on the cover" - although the auction stakes "Still in Plastic".  Apparently in her mind the auction description and picture changed.



Not to mention that she followed all this up with:

I like how there is a point made that "some items are still in their dust sleeves." Doesn't that mean "some might still have their covers?"


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

The nice guy that I am, I sent her a link to the thread here and got this response:

You have been reported to the Safety Harbor department for releasing my information to an outside source and continuing to contact me after you said you were only responding to my responses. Therefore, I stopped messaging you and still kept sending me message to exascerbate the situation. You are wrong about the pictures and that is that. You have been reported for harassment and that is that. Now, leave me alone or I will continue to report your further messages to eBay as I have not asked you to not communicate with me. The next step will be to contact eBay for your contact information and contact your ISP and make a complaint with them.


Could someone send her a message that I posted a response here - I don't want to message her for fear of further harassment  :D  :roll:

She has a ragged out copy of  B1 listed with a $50 BIN.....

She also has a bunch of the Conan Saga Mags listed at $25 each.

I just picked up (about 3 months ago) all of issues 2-10  for a buck each at Half Price Books.

I could have gotten another 40 or 50 issues at that price too, but I did not have enough money.

Ya, most of the prices are out to lunch.  $25 each for Dragon Magazines in the 120s, $50 -$60 for 1st Edition hardcovers, $50 for B1 - that ones ultra rare right?

Buyer beware with bookoutlet1.  My order for some supposedly new 3.5 books was incomplete.  The books that I did receive were damaged due to unprotected packaging and obviously well-used before they were shipped --- corners worn through to the underlying cardboard, covers no longer glossy, pages and binding no longer tight, etc.

Still having great luck buying 3.5 online, eh JG?  Honestly by the condition of the items you are getting either every 3.5 owner/player shoved his books up his ass first, or.....every 3.5 owner/player shoved his books up his ass first....

It helps if you started with 3.0, those books were thinner. :wink:

The quality of 3.5 and 4E books varies much more than I expected.  Did people LARP and use the 3.5 books as missile and melee weapons, or what?  Stock photos are not helping matters at all.

3.5 and 4E book auctions are complete crapshoots.  Some sellers privately answer "Yes, a name is written in the front cover" and neglect to add that to the auction description.  Others don't pack the books that well.  Still others really do ship like-new books that arrive undamaged; why does that suprise me?

So . . . it's just eBay and Amazon as usual.  :)

:?:

Is there a way to block/remove sellers (like with buyers), rather than have to try and remember their names or search on them every time you want to place a bid?

I think you can do it with a saved search (to leave out certain stores (T&T) or buyers).  Someone posted destructions on how to do it at one time but it's been a while.

The limit is ten blocked sellers and that is only from searches you've created and saved. What is needed is a blocked sellers list so you dont bid on their items by mistake.

Lawl! That's classic.

Conan Saga was a reprint magazine. I've literally given them away before.

Avoid seller :
dougieschnauzer

He sold two lots at auction to me.  One was a penny and one was a 1.25.  I am sympathetic to his low final sale price.  I am not sympathetic to his attempt to charge $40 shipping to make up for it.  For the record, this is gouging shipping by $30-35.  His feedback shows a neutral that indicates that a sold item became unavailable.  I presume shipping overcharges or losing stuff to avoid delivery on low sales is par for the course for him.

So what did you tell him?

I suggested he follow ebay policy and not try to use shipping to avoid ebay fees in the future.  I also reported him to ebay under the excessive shipping charges for both auctions.  I reread his feedback and decided this was not a unique occurrence based on the neutral.  So I gave him his first negative with corresponding dsr's.
