COMC seems to be taking steps to resolve this issue. The seller of the tainted cards is taking a page from the Brent playbook by offering buybacks. But personally, I think this is the right time for COMC to get them all back and use a massive amount of altered slabs in one location to go after PSA's buyback guarantee.
For the ones past the return window, that may be an option for a bunch of the purchasers. Hopefully COMC responds positively to this misuse of their selling platform.

COMC's response. Definitely stronger than almost any other platform.

I've never used COMC. I may have to start. Kudos for an unequivocal statement.

If you buy a lot of lower value cards their shipping can save you a ton of cash. Unfortunately they are becoming a museum with insane prices.

The crazy thing about the COMC cards is the sheer volume they must have been trimming. There are 3 dollar, low interest cards that have been found trimmed. The conclusion has to be that they took a blade to their whole PSA submissions. It looks like a volume business - take a modern 5 dollar card, two minute trim, into a CS1 and off for bulk grading. Ten dollar investment including grading and shipping, sell card for 20-30 bucks. Multiply by thousands of cards and you have a low risk, high reward business. Turining ten dollar bills into twenty dollars bills is a good little business, with the odd big hit in between.
