Don't buy from blueringo66.  He used a fake account or a friend to bid up his item, contacted me trying to get me to bid it up more (I didn't go for it), and then when his fake account won the item he immediately sent me a second chance offer.  What a loser.  I reported him to eBay and contacted him, telling him I'd report him here as well.

Dear blueringo66,

I've reported you to eBay for your obvious shilling activity and your fraudulent second chance offer. I will also be posting your ID on the Acaeum website and making sure people know you are not trustworthy to do business with. I hope you learn your lesson, and do not engage in this type of activity in the future.

Can you post the link to the auction?  :twisted:

I always get a bad feeling about those second chance offers. It's seems like the perfect opportunity for crooked sellers to shill their auction, then if they get stuck with the thing, send out the offer.
I'm not saying all second chances are bad, but I always wonder.....

Just some citadel paints, nothing important, but I just wanted to make sure folks were aware that this guy was unscrupulous.  He sent me a response saying:

Dear beer_motor,

I am sorry you feel this way. I accutally had 2 kits and sold them both to dthomp72. I think I listed the item incorrectly in the begining. I will be more careful when I list in the future. Sorry about the confusion. Ringo



Yeah, right buddy.  Heh.
