This gets better - here is the dialogue I have had with this guy...
Me. "Hi. Is the Cornelius a reproduction card like the other 3 or is it original? Thanks."
Him. "Hi there i have not got a clue what are reproduction cards and what are not the cornelius i brought in the 1970's and never opened it but the other 3 i brought from a car boot last year and they cost me a lot of money so i hope there not fakes
Me. "Hi. Sorry to tell you but they are definitely fakes. Mego never made POTA figures on rectangular cards like that. They were always square. I would have thought that the boxed figures you sold recently under a different username would have made you a bit more aware of reproduction packaging. Anyway, good luck with the auction."
Him. "Okay thats twice someone has said i have already sold under another name can you tell me what the name is as i have told ebay this and they need the user name so they can check it for me"
Me. "The listing is here http://cgi.ebay.com/MEGO-PLANET-OF-T...QQcmdZViewItem It seems too much of a coincidence that both auctions are located in Birmingham and both sets of photos are taken on the same carpet and both are selling reproduction packaging. Your auction is misleading because there isn`t one single Palitoy card there - and yet even when advised you are selling reproduction items you still let the auction run - it`s a total con."
Him. "I have just had a look at the carpet that is a windows vista background the same one i used i have emailed lukeb12 and he lives on the other side of town to me but i have reported this matter to ebay as i am new to this and i dont want any bad feedback but i can resure you i am not lukeb12 and if you ask ebay they will confirm this for you"
I can`t believe he is trying to pass the background off as Windows Vista - It`s carpet FF sake.
This has been added to the auction now - I have just been informed that these are not Paitoy there are more likly to be Mego i only used the wording Mego/Palitoy as ebay advised me of this as i was unsure which brand was which but another ebayer has advised me that they are only Mego i am sory for the mistake... He is still trying to pass them off as original Mego....aarrrggghhh - these people do my head in. He`s been rumbled and doesn`t like it, and like Kingcarm says "The sad thing is that someone that isn't a member of the museum will get stung and probably for big money." It`s just so annoying. Rant over
