I thought I needed to put this in the vintage forum since it gets the traffic not the feedback forum. This was posted at another site by a really cool guy BigRed who seems to be out to warn fellow collectors. Well I'm reposting what he did so nobody on here gets ripped off.

Over the past few days, I've noticed a number of auctions from a few individuals in Virigina and the Virginia Beach area. This seller, joxlom just listed this Tri Logo Boba Fett-

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....item=1743412525

His single feedback was from an item that was ended within minutes of being listed. The seller of that item is now selling a large number of vintage pieces, carter27:

He also had numerous Tri Logo Boba Fetts, one auction he ended early along with a number of other auctions that stole pictures from 12Back.com. The photographs have no consistency to them and appear to have been stolen from other sources.

A number of months ago, a number of sellers in the same area were building up their feedback by selling and buying DVDs and other videos (just as these two sellers are...even the same bootleg Fantastic Four video that I remember) before pulling frauds for large numbers of carded figures. I was almost taken for a large lot of POTF coins too, but realized the deal was just too good to be true. I got to the point of addressing the envelope and writing the check but then realized it would be a bad move.

Even worse, another seller, motiondevotion is in the same general area:

http://cgi6.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISA...&sort=3&rows=25

Their descriptions are almost identical to the type by the other sellers mentioned above, and their feedback was from a DVD.

I would be very cautious dealing with these individuals. They have stolen pictures to sell their current items, but it appears they are getting some knowledge on how to pull a scam because they ended the auctions with the 12Back.com note in the bottom corners of the picture.

OUCH! well see if they bother to send it. I think you just got screwed. And He or whatever claims to be a single women. Cause when I asked her if a buddy of mine could pick something up in person she said it was fine. So i don't know i'm still 70-30 about her being honest.

Uh...I would ask JarJarBinks he seems to be smart about what to do. PM him maybe he'll help you maybe not. hmmm....I emailed all the bidders on that auction except for the last two days as i got busy. Lots of people retracted bids... Plus I posted this warning and other things all in here and the saga forum..people just overlooked it completely sigh.....well i've been ripped off three times in a row. I'm really losing faith in people..

Well trust me even if she does rip you off you can get her in small claims court and on mail fraud. Just have a much documentation as possible. And whatever you do always act professional don't threaten or name call as SCAM artists and rippers will try to use that against you.

Uh, fellas? Sounds like this might be more appropriate for Private Messaging instead of posting. First part about the warning was fine, but it's become more like a conversation now.

Friendly Neighborhood Bel-Cam ;)

No, I'll keep it open, in case someone else has another tale of trades/sales gone wrong. Luckily, I have avoided such problems, but since you are dealing with one, perhaps others can learn from it. That's where this thread is good! :)
