Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Usually during the winter season, the owner (who has a notorious reputation for being a rip-off and scam artist), holds a "collectibles show" which 40 different vendors every weekend in which you are charged $5.00 to enter. The problem is, it's all his own stuff and there are no vendors as he claims. So he is basically charging you $5.00 to walk into an over priced antique store. Everything is over priced and most he has no intention of selling, like a Star Wars collection he baits people with on Craigslist. This way, he can continue to draw people in and steal $5.00 off them.

I also saw him trying to pass off reproduction Barbie dolls as being "original" in one his weekly auctions, which I've never attended, but heard most of the stuff is repro he passes off as being original or junk he gets from the thrift store.

This company sells fake and reprint items and they do not disclose that the items are not original.

AUTHOR: IamME - ()

Do not trust this company what so ever! Dont bid, dont buy, dont even contact them for anything. They sell fake and reprint items as originals, and do not disclose that an item is not original. They pass the items off as being original and no where in their description do they state that an item is a reprint, fake, or anything other than original. Also, they shorted the shipping costs of my items by sending the items as media mail, and yes USPS investigated and found that the items were not media and I had to pay the additional shipping on a C.O.D. just to get reprint junk.

This was after I already gave them about $20.00 for shipping! Yes shame on me for thinking that I was getting a deal and no one else wanted the items, but shame on them more for not disclosing the truth and ripping their customers off! My story is I bid on two different lots of vintage baseball cards from an online auction site. From the low res. pictures the cards looked original and somewhat worn.

Something I would expect from a vintage baseball card. Others had also bid on these items, so I bit the bullet and bid as well. I won the bid on both lots and waitied for my items. I had suspicion that the cards may be reprints, but I didnt think that they would be absolute junk like what I received from them. These wrent even mid-quality reprints, they were complete crap! Needless to say I have learned my lesson with bidding on items from lesser known auction houses like this one, as they are just trying to make money by ripping people off and dont care about taking care of their customers or anything else.

They did not repsond to my emails for information about my won lots, nor did they provide me a tracking number. It was a game of buy reprint items that were being passed off as originals, wait to get no response from them when trying to get information via email, pay additional shipping on C.O.D., then to see junk reprint items in the package. I was completely and totally ripped off and I dont want you to fall, into the same situation. Buyer beware of this company, they may rip you off too!!!!!!
