Trying to understand this sellers wares, as they claim modern perfs on varieties.

Guessing this a scam

There are a slew of these, but I am more than a bit suspect.

One feedback from one sale in the last 12 months, and suddenly he has a heap of "rare" items. I have no doubt that this seller is to be avoided

Just to clarify jubilee's comment, this seller has had 1 feedback as a seller EVER. Exactly 1. And his feedback as a buyer is extremely suspicious.

He has bought multiple lots from just a few sellers, which can be a suspicious way to build up feedback when a member only has 1 feedback as a seller. He also left a negative feedback for a seller, then traded with them again on 5 more lots. Could be a way to appear legit by leaving a negative feedback.

This seller also bought a $1,000 item at auction, with no competition. I have no idea if the item is worth $1,000 but if not it would be a totally bogus transaction.

Personally, I'd run. Don't walk- run.

This seller clearly does not know how to use a perforation gauge! He is counting the perforations.

Greedy much??

I'd bet a buck it's a hijacked account.

I reported this listing for trying to sell his $10,000,000 China Airmail cover outside eBay. They'll probably ignore me.

I COULDN'T bid on this guy's stuff simply because I cannot make out what he is trying to say! Sounds quite unstable, too. I guess what he is doing is legal (or at least mostly so) so I would simply give him a VERY wide berth.

As a follow up to my post above, the $1,000 item he "bought" uses the same type of perfing as the items he SELLS. Look at the images- there are notations of how many perfs are on each side.

Not to mention, BOTH buyer AND seller are the same screen name - altamazin_68.

Doh!

An interesting exchange then. Reminds me of the day I was walking along the street in Westminster when I heard a rather acrimonious argument going on behind me, Turned around to see it was one man vigorously arguing with himself ...

Eye there are a few hidden secrets in eBay ;-)

Just kidding, sort of. There is a somewhat difficult way to find ID's of buyers but it is possible. I would like Bobby and/or Don to weigh in if it's ok for me to explain how.



I asked the seller if he has a perf gauge and if he knows how to use it. This is his response:

Thanks Rismoney. I just want to be sure that the moderators here, who are not beholden to eBay, would consider such a post appropriate on their site.

It is acceptable as long as it is not a hack or violation of the Terms of Service.

Thanks Don. I only use information that eBay provides to all users. I'll write it up and post.
