Dear gforce083,

Keep that email. Don't send anything extra. If he dings your DSRs....nail him for feedback extortion.

This person is also a top-rated seller. Interestingly it looks as if they rarely leave feedback at all for items purchased. Notice all of the items won and the feedback left for others. It's tough to find any he has left for other sellers.

It looks as if you can only get feedback left for you if you purchase something from them or give them something extra smile.gif

I was going to chime in but thought better of it. However, if you send something extra my way, I will agree with whatever you say. smile.gif

Include decoys in the package as additional protection and write "Extra" on it.

The card and "nice" letter have been delivered. We'll see what or if they have anything to say.

blocked, thanks for the heads up


"Baseball players will take anything. If you had a pill that would guarantee a pitcher 20 wins but might take five years off his life, he'd take it" MLB pitcher Jim Bouton about drug use in the Major Leagues... quoted in 1969.

I vow to no longer purchase any product that features sticker autographs...
If your user name is this color I'm afraid I'll have to pass on any proposed transactions at this time.
