Yup - tried the exact some scam here. Collectors really need to pay attention to this guy. He likes to keep it around $25k worth of cards.... and he said he trades (does this) all the time. I was all for it when he wanted to mail me two Jordan's PSA's (overnighted) in good faith. If it's to good to be true then it is.

Default Looking for some help

Hey friends -- looking for a little help here. Unfortunately, I've recently been in contact with the fraudster described here earlier. I didn't do enough homework in time, and let my optimistic nature get the better of me.

But he is still out there peddling extremely well done counterfeit PSA items, and I'm trying to make sure this doesn't happen to anyone else.

If anyone can remember any details, or has any old texts/emails from interactions with this scammer - please PM me directly. His ebay handle has been changed again recently now to sufferman11515. If you have any contact with him, please let this board (and me) know asap. thanks!

Those variation B 52Ts don't seem to have the missing pixel?

Most of those cards require 3 seconds to confirm they're bogus. Is it the slab or the possible great deal that blinds people?

And sorry this happened to you, William. There's no excuse for scammers and thieves. I hope they get nailed to a wall.
