I mentioned CBCS shill only because you said "across the street" the guy either swapped the book or was a CGC shill.  :smirk:

This is one I sat on for a while because I was pretty sure I was going to end up dealing with a chargeback or some other type of follow-up shenanigans, but the time limit for all of that should be passed by now.  

So a quick synopsis - back in July of 2019, I sold my FOOM 2 SS 9.8 to forevergirl918.  Some time around when I received payment, I got the initial message you'll see in the first pic.  It was a bit odd, but we're all a bit odd.  I sent the book by USPS registered mail, and during transit we exchanged a couple cordial messages because the shipping took longer than the estimated arrival (no pics of these posted, though I do have them).  No issues up to this point.  But things went sideways when the buyer got the book in hand as you'll see in pics 2-5.  The final two pics are the listing photos from the eBay listing.

Ultimately, he did leave me the promised positive (his feedback record is still pretty sterling to this day), and the situation ended with the book in his hand and the sale money in my hand.  I won't speculate on if there were any ulterior motives involved in this whole thing, but I never did receive copies of the unboxing video or photos of any claimed damage. 

Seeing as how a 4 figure transaction nearly blew up on me, I went ahead and blocked him, and I wanted to put this experience out there for you all to make you're own determination.  I can also point to this particular incident being my final straw with selling anything of value on eBay.

This guy canceled his preorder. Told me that he needed a refund because his barn was damaged and he needed the money back to make repairs. The following week he has the same books listed for sale. hm

eBay user: cuboneds_collectibles

sent me a second chance offer on a lot of books after “winning” bidder cancelled less than a minute after auction ended. If you’re gonna use a shill bidder to try to bump the price, try not to be so obvious about it. My highest bids are placed a certain way for a reason. I also review the bid history. 😉

FWIW, having my share of back problems, I decipher this as meaning because of a spine injury, he/she cannot keep their arms elevated without support, so they lean forward with their wrists or forearms resting on their knees, and when moving hands left and right on the keyboard is required, they do so by moving their knees left and right, all to avoid lifting the arms from their support. 

Painkillers might explain the rest lol

When my lower back is bad, lifting my foot from the gas to the brakes is not easy.

It is a PITA, but refunds are pretty easy with paypal, unlike olden times

I'm not sure what you mean by butt hurt, but an offer of 50% doesn't even get a response from me.I don't consider it a 'starting point', I consider it exactly what it is .. a lowball offer that doesn't deserve a response.

it depends on how optimistic your opening price is. 50% is deserving of a counter if your price has 10-25% wiggle room. I don't see 50% as an insult, I see it as them feeling you out. considering I have gotten major dealers down 25%+ on their prices (for example, my copy of showcase 23), why not start at 50%? you might have 50 copies of that book and are very willing to negotiate.

I concur.

I actually allow offers beginning at 50%. I can't recall if I have accepted that low, though.

I guess it all depends. 50% of $1000 is different than 50% of $10.

Are you trying to say that all I sell is trash?

Block this complete Total Loser at all cost

I am surprised this one is not suspended, Check out his feedback Left for others.

Good grief. 

So essentially, he's just a repeat offender crook that's using eBay to steal. 

This one is a must block for all sellers.

He is saying that he never got his comic book even though the tracking says delivered. I told him, file a claim& all he said "I Just want a Refund" I thought looking at his feedback left for others was a joke

BLOCK, BLOCK, BLOCK!!!
