He has sold dozens of 4 margins 1d blacks from 15-20 quid apiece and these total Morons expect they are REAL??

Don't these dopes CHECK his past sales of these and bad feedbacks before buying his fictional stock?

Ebay is a breeding ground for both con sellers and idiot "buyers".

Here they meet head on. They truly deserve each other. :!: :!: :!:



Only a brain dead Ebay Bunny could expect 4 margin 1d Blacks for 16 quid

It is a wonder eBay haven't given him the chop already.

I've never collected Penny Blacks, so have no way of knowing if the example shown is right. But the application of a tiny amount of common sense tells me that, at this price, it has to be a dud

I looked at what his negatives were for. Every one of them was for unfranked Machin heads without gum. I am sure the bottom feeder buyers only ever intended to use these stamps for their collection and had no intention of trying to defraud Royal Mail by reusing them.

It is also interesting that after three years of providing a satisfactory service and making a lot of sales, he has suddenly gone rogue, and has not supplied 40 + orders all priced at under 20 Quid. Five Hundred Quid sure aint a retirement fund.

They probably all deserve each other.

It may be a case of a hijacked account.

Good seller has his account hacked and hacker is making some pocket money.

I wonder if he has indeed 'died of coronavirus' and an unscrupulous relative has got control of his account.

Surely he'll NARUd soon.

A few years ago it actually happened to me to make a purchase on eBay and the seller died soon after. I was fortunate because I never received the invoice so I didn't make payment and loose money. I am sure of it because the seller was a known person in the philatelic world and his departure was made quite public. Unfortunately heirs did not honour eBay sales...

Sounds like a good explanation. One of my clients with a long-standing reputation and a well-stocked warehouse of general merchandise got hacked and they found Ebay impossible to deal with.

And the moon is made of Green Cheese. :roll:

This seller has been flogging illegal no gum UK postage for years if you read the past feedback.

Actually, the great majority of "unfranked" lots he's sold have been in the last month or so.

Prior to this, most of the "unfranked" items received positive feedback.

Something has changed, but what?

That 4th comment is brilliant vitriol.

He sounds almost as angry as that bloke with the backward name who didn't get his 1½d stamp from mahxolB.

Considering that the upset buyers were purchasing these stamps to use on mail and were perfectly happy to defraud Royal Mail by doing so, they are not exactly leading from the high moral ground.

Perhaps Royal Mail issuing their posties with a "dumb canceller", which I am told often runs dry of ink, but then reverting more assiduously to the dreaded biro. I have recently had little or nothing of a reasonable amount of post "un-cancelled"
