Agree with that completely. No one deserves to get ripped off, and I hope the OP gets made whole with this transaction. But someone offering to trade a $25-30K card for a $9K card straight up is pretty sketchy.

Yea I agree. In a case like this it would be easy to suggest using an escrow company or a mutually agreed upon middleman. If it's a scam you will quickly see the other party make up a ridiculous excuse, or stop responding all together. Even if the trade wasn't so obviously one sided it's always smart to take precautions.

But getting scammed sucks and I hope he gets his card back. The OP's name needs to be out here too.,.,.,and it is.. Alex Ram.thun
I’m with Leon on this one. Normally I don’t think it’s cool to post someone’s personal info without fully hearing both sides of the story. In this case I think the OP did the right thing. Call this slapd*ck out with all his personal info. Seems like he’s been ripping people off for so long it’s time somebody put a stop to it. Stories like this really upset me. We all work hard for our $ and have such a passion for the cards we own. Nobody wants a con artist to screw ya over.
To the OP, I hope you catch this guy. Did u email PSA/SGC/BGS and warn them just to cover all your basis? I wouldn’t be surprised if he cracked the card out and resubmitted it to get a new holder with new seriel #. Then your card will be impossible to locate. I put my initials with a permanent marker on the back of all my cards before submitting them. That way if anything happens I knw if it’s my card or not. FYI to all the guys that are about to freak out bout me initially my cards it was only a joke!

Reading stuff like this just goes to show you what a joke the Canadian criminal justice system is. If I were to get caught stealing some toothpaste in a shopping mall, the mall security would take me upstairs and hold me for the police. The police would then show up and take me away immediately. At the station, I would be questioned, fingerprinted and probably not be allowed to go home. I would also have to appear before a judge.

Now here is a POS stealing thousands and thousands of dollars worth of sports cards, which he keeps in his own garage, and yet he doesn't have to worry about a damn thing. The Christmas decorations are up and he's just sitting in his home plotting his next move - what the hell is this?

The guy didn't get caught stealing. Someone told the police he stole a card. There is a big difference. I'm not sure how different the result would be here. How do you prove you didn't receive the correct card? Maybe if you video taped receiving the package and opening it there would be evidence. Hopefully the others who have been scammed reported this guy as well and an investigation can stop him.

No judge is going to issue someone be held in jail for petty theft unless that person has a warrant. In most cases you wouldn't even go to the police station. You'd be handed an appearance ticket and be on your way.
