Hi everyone,

Just thought I'd wander on over and ask a new question concerning our "favorite" eBay person, Cougarrinard.  :roll:

The other day, he posted a question on one of my auctions (for three of the booklets from the Planescape: Hellbound set), asking if I'd be willing to ship these items to a friend of his in Tennessee who could then get the items to Coug for a much better rate than usual.

Naturally, I just deleted this question from my auction -- he's on my Blocked Seller list anyway -- but I just thought I'd ask if anyone else had encountered this question from him before?

Cheers,
JohnH

I Received the same question from him a week or so ago.

I've seen him tell lots of sellers lately, if they won't ship overseas, he has a US address they can use.

Probably saves a bundle by shipping in large lots, rather than a couple items at a time.

(And probably those lots all miraculously 'are delivered', unlike the ones from other people that 'never arrive'. :roll: )

Coug has a US connection willing to ship him items, sort of a RPG Judas if you will.  Reminds me of the humans who worked knowingly with the alien lizards on "V".  

I guess just for the heck of it, I will remind all sellers here that if you ship to someone other than who has won the auction, you are NOT eligible for any recourse through paypal or Ebay if said package or item becomes "lost"....even if you have used delivery confirmation, certified mail, signature delivery, WHATEVER, if you don't ship to the buyer's confirmed address you are not allowed to seek redress. As a matter of fact, the buyer will AUTOMATICALLY get his funds returned if he states he did not receive the item, no matter what your proof, and the funds will immediately be taken from your paypal account.  Be warned.

The next person to receive a Tenessee e-mail should try and find out the info of the person. User ID (if any), address, etc.

By the way, look at the feedback:

I see a website URL in that feedback!  Given that Cougie tried to pull someone's feedback merely for mentioning Google, I must ask: is it possible to get someone else's feedback pulled for policy violations? :twisted:

Even by cutting shipping costs how does this guy make any money? He certainly has a whole host of dirty tricks to cut costs but he's paying too much for most lots. Seems like his profit margin is razor thin. But then again I only have one house and not three so...


Hmm, no, I don't have a gambling problem, I'm winning, and winning is not a problem. That's like saying Michael Jordan has a basketball problem, or Def Leppard has an awesomeness problem. So why don't y'all pour some sugar on that?

Well he does a lot of volume so even a small margin could add up. Also he may well have dozens of buyers in Europe or Australia that he deals with regularly offline.

Hi everyone,

I got this cryptic message from him on my eBay account earlier:

"bad advice usually comes from jealous people,
who just want to see sales / high bids as low as possible.
wandering monster"

Guess he lurks on here -- perhaps with a hat of disguise??  :wink:

Well,

I would argue that no one here actually report this feedback.  Think about it.  What would you do if you were looking at this remark and saw that there was a website listed?  You would probably check out the website, which would lead the uninformed to the various posts here.  That, in turn, may help some (new to cougie tactics) ebayers avoid a nasty surprise.  So in summary, that comment will probably have the exact opposite of its original sock-puppet's intent.

Unless cougie's new Tennessee lurker sock puppet reads this...

Dave does this to himself a lot.  

He rages about people or things that he would profit more from ignoring.

He spends too much time either gloating or getting revenge.

I don't think that danteisevil necessarily started out as Dave's American connection...since he had a rough enough experience here and got banned for it.....but his attempt at a small amount of revenge on the Acaeum will surely backfire.
