Lacy Seas violin picture

HI Everyone! I am so glad I read the chat tonight. I had put several of these auctions in my favorites. as I was deleteing them I was looking at the photos and the violin picture has Lacy Sea's mark on it. Now this one has ended and the seller has relisted with a different violin picture. Thanks to all your keen eyes, I didn't even notice the different backgrounds, but the sick wife story did have me a little leary. Thanks everyone! Donna

Our seller has just listed another bunch of solids with pictures that look real this time so we don't know what to think now. Maybe his camera was just so bad that he took others' pictures to use. sad.gif

Very confusing. ph34r.gif

At least he isn't stealing pictures now. huh.gif

You are right, Don and Margret:

It is confusting. Can you believe? Putting a collection like that out all at once! 50-60 of some of the best pieces all starting at 99 cents! Some one needs lessons in marketing skills as well as photography.

Guess, the Leprechaun was watching out for some of us!
HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY EVERYONE!
"Honest Seller, Yeh Right!" 124 Estee Lauder Perfume Solids starting at 99 cents,
looks like they should have bought better health insurance instead of perfume solids. Note: His wife dusted them every week, I haven't dusted every week in the last twenty years. "Live and Learn" as they say!

I looked at the pics...I copied and pasted them and enlarged them. They are fuzzy. However, I noticed that each one casts a shadow on the gray background and the shadow appears to match that of the solid.

The pics look legit. I also notice that there are bidders on a few of the more desirable and sought after pieces. Am tempted to throw in a bid myself.

So...it this person legit or not?

This is a tough one!!!! ohmy.gif

If it is true about his wife I feel very bad that they will not get much for some of the solids. They might make up some on others but it still looks like a bad deal for them .

I did ask about the "open box" statement in his discription and got a fast reply. Open box means no box on the new items he put on ebay.

Anyone live in Arizona??? That would be the only way to know for sure is to go his house and see the stuff.

Temptation is rearing its ugly head. wink.gif
Not going to Vegas this year so I might gamble a little.

I did a search on this site to see if we had a member from Arizona and found a Patricia from Scottsdale, which is just outside of Phoenix. Maybe this is Hostageticker's wife, maybe not.

Ann,
You hit the nail on the head with your temptation comment. This begins to look almost irresistable. sad.gif

I've just had a quick look at some of his feedback and noticed that he is still buying as well as selling (but no solids there yet, and no names I recognise). So that doesn't make sense . . . .

I'm also wondering why he doesn't have a reserve, etc. I think people are being weary so I am almost certain people will be conservative with their bids . . .

Don't quite know what to make of this one! dry.gif

Ron,

Regarding 5565350186 ebay auction

To quote a good friend..... "Looks like a junk dealer" most of the stuff this person is buying is Barbie items and is selling makeup.

I am not a solid expert but something looks really wrong with this - I have never seen that before (must be hard to check your make up with all that stuff on your mirror).
