    Just thought i would make everyone aware that there is a seller now on ebay with the user name minelba selling rare G1 Japanese transformers. I know this because i bid on one of his old auction for Overlord, i was out bidded everytime and after the auction ended i was given a second chance offer. told some users on OTCA.com.au and a user on there was also given a second chance. Also the original bidded won all his auctions, so one person drives up the price then he offers many second chances to people.

    Anyway here is the proof
    His overlord now on ebay
    Transformers Overlord 100 % complete C.9.5 - eBay (item 200408227280 end time Nov-26-09 17:45:09 PST)

    And the one i bid on
    Transformers Overlord complete - eBay, Transformers, Figuras de acción, Juguetes. (end time 13-Nov-09 07:07:47 AEDST)

    Same pictures, same description, and same location

    He also sold these a little while ago
    Black Zarak
    Star Saber
    Overlord
    Road Caesar

    And hes now selling them again, even though he sold them and offered second chances
    Black Zarak
    Star Saber
    Overlord
    Road Caesar

    Stay clear of this guy!

    A loose unbroken Black Zarak is unusual enough, throw in his zero feedback and the fact that every TF is taken against a different background, wasn't hard to guess something was up.

    Convenient how the same guy won all four auctions, and that 100% of bids are with that same seller.

    Reported all four.

    My initial report was summarily dismissed by whoever first looks at these complaints. I sent them a followup detailing all the issues I saw with the auctions and finally got a response today:

    So, at least they did something.

    This guy is the person who scammed me for a G1 MIB Go Shooter (I was foolish enough to mail without tracking). I'm currently investigating on whether or not it got lost in the mail. Either way, I'm not going to see my money back. He has more than one account. This is the account he won my auction on: eBay Feedback Profile for lujocn

    Do not sell to this guy!
    Conveniently, I'm quite sure he sells the items to himself (the seller's name is the low feedback account's email address). They're also both in the same exact city. Please, I employ anyone to stop this scammer!

    FUCK, he's using my pictures of the Go Shooter I sold him!

    $%*()%&$*)%&#)*#&$#)*

    I hate this fucker.

    You know what pisses me off, even if I prove that this seller did receive my package, Paypal's not going to do anyhing, and neither will ebay, I am so fucking angry right now.

    Point them to the eBay auction.

    Show them what you got.

    That'll help too :p
