Re: EBay Photos -Seller Beware

A lot of Western Desert photos of abandoned Luftwaffe aircraft were subject to multiple printings and distribution.

Re: EBay Photos -Seller Beware

Agree that 80 years ago some photos were mass produced but for a seller who was not there at the time to have multiple original copies is a bit suspect

Re: EBay Photos -Seller Beware

I'm running across some manipulated photos. Check the faces of these two "men."

Possible plastic model combined with second image. Notice canopy area and lighting inconsistency.

Another possible model kit. Note the blurring and face pasted into the cockpit.

Re: EBay Photos -Seller Beware

...and a second recorded letter with 2 eBay purchases from Germany has failed to arrive. Strange that both contained photos of RK winners. Sellers most apologetic but what is going on

Re: EBay Photos -Seller Beware

Not sure what you mean by 'recorded' - does that mean signed for? In Australia that's referred to as 'registered'.
Maybe try getting them sent in a box as a parcel with tracking? Cost?? I guess the determining factor here would be what percentage of mail is going astray - if you get lots then I guess getting them sent as parcels would be prohibitive.
Maybe someone in the system knows who you are and is targetting you. Get them sent somewhere else?

Re: EBay Photos -Seller Beware

We have recorded delivery & registered post. Both are signed for. One costs more than the other & guarantees delivery with more compensation. Apparently speaking to both sellers this is an increasing problem

Re: EBay Photos -Seller Beware

Same seller is selling another copy of the same photo. So he had at least 3 copies???? Still will not accept PayPal. Suspect or what?

Re: EBay Photos -Seller Beware

Hello Chris.
Not a good scenario to get caught up in. I'd certainly be suspicious.
But I thought all eBay sellers are REQUIRED to offer Paypal? I doubt I would ever buy from an eBayer by direct deposit. Too high a risk with no recourse.
If I may ask, who is the seller? Positive feedback percentage?

Re: EBay Photos -Seller Beware

I would rather not name and shame for obvious legal reasons! I have never bought from him due to no PayPal. Others on 12 OCH have noticed who this person is.
