Default Delaware auction of $1 MILLION of unopened returned as Fraudulent

From the PSA message board:

Interesting thread, but since there are a lot of unopened buyers here, figured you should all be on the lookout for these boxes getting passed along some other way. Shocked that PSA allows threads like this on their board (although not suspending their own fraudster for trying resell the scam boxes multiple times), but will not allow discussion of their own screwups.

a.k.a. "Never get cheated, unless we're the ones cheating you!"
PWCC: The Fish Stinks From the Head
PSA: Regularly Get Cheated
BGS: Can't detect trimming on modern
SGC: Closed auto authentication business
JSA: Approved same T206 Autos before SGC
Oh, what a difference a year makes.

Wow. The Hoopers again?? Oye. Hopefully something happens to them. Wax is so risky even more so cuz of these nutjobs. Some of their work can easily fool alot of buyers.

All that work they did but they got sloppy instead of selling it off a little at a time.

I bought a box once from a lot that had come from a dealer known for searching packs. He had a lot of unopened junk wax, supposedly all searched.

The box I got was apparently from the "good" pile, as there was a then better card in every pack.
Overall probably still worth less today than I paid back then.

I couldn't bring myself to buy any "unopened" wax, authenticated or not. I get the appeal but it's too easy to reseal wax and sell it as unopened.
