Default Our favorite seller on Ebay - Battlefield0516

So I've always wondered why Battlefield0516 is still getting such strong prices after everyone on here knows that Carol is doctoring the photos, and knows better than to deal with this crook.

I think I found my answer - Shill bidding:
http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.d..._None_ViewLink

Fake, pictures. Shill bidding. Anything else this seller won't do to rip off her customers?

I don't get why people keep consign with this seller. Actually, on second thought, maybe the other 27% is buying the stuff she is selling.

Ibet Ebay could shut her down in 60 seconds if they wanted to. Oh wait, silly thought.

Cheers,
Patrick

I like on the negative feedback for 6 months...there are 77 negatives...that on some of the comments he writes 'Not True, bidder is banned from future auctions' but is without any comment on most of them....I guess they are true than..

I made the mistake of winning some of her auctions recently...all looked nr-mt in scans...claims of sharp corners/ no creases...only to receive the cards to find creases...dinged corners hidden in scans.

Refund was promptly given but a frustrating experience.

I must have ignored previous posts about this seller...never again!!

They have several ebay IDs. I have bought some stuff from them and had to return everything for hidden flaws or alterations--not implying they altered the cards but they certainly did not catch the problems. They refunded immediately. They buy out of my auction listings and tend to buy cards which have better eye appeal than their technical grade. Have not tracked those purchases to see what they do with the cards in their listings.

They have been discussed many times on here. As mentioned above, their thing (at least one of them) is to crack out cards and scan and describe them in a way that makes them look 2 or more grades nicer. Apparently there are a lot of not very critical people out there/people who don't submit.

As long as they will refund, ebay won't touch them.

well people are buying the card not the grade........im sure some people don't bother with the hassle of returning the card..almost like getting a mail in rebate which many people never send in.....life gets in the way

Good question-

I have been hesitant on them as well and I feel like someone posted about a bad experience but I can't place it.

Anyone have input on great_lakes_auction_house26?

The cards look great but are always raw.

I might just start a thread to get more answers out of curiousity.

Problem is they're not getting the card in condition shown. They photoshop their scans. Almost universally I'd bet.

Throught the years, I have made a couple of low dollar purchases from them and there were no problems. The 2 cards I have bought were low dollar W572 and scans were accurate for what I had bought. With that said, I would not buy anything of significance from them due to reputation.

Well, I wasn't trying to rehash the long-established deceptive photo practices. I was saying that based on the bidding history, it's pretty obvious Carolyn is shill bidding her items. I bet if you looked into the other 27% of transactions that "buyer" has bid on - you'd find that they are items that she bought for resale.

Ebay could figure in 10 minutes - but we know they won't because they make money off her.

Cheers,
Patrick
