Hello Kevin, I am really interested in Buy_It_Now, but I do not know how much to offer. Do you have a price that you would be comfortable with? Please let me know. Thanks.

As much as I wanted leave their email address for everyone to see. I'm not going to play at that low level.

My response: I'm on vacation in Florida this week. I can pay cash and take the sign with me. What is your address? I can meet you anytime after 5:00 PM. I have plans with the family until that time.

Waiting for the hook to catch...


Latest response from "andrewtmajor":
Hello, I'm in Texas. We moved recently. I forgot to update item location in my selling template on eBay. Shipping is free. Thanks

My reply:
Oh, that is not a problem. As you stated, FREE shipping anyway. I can immediately overnight you a Money Order as I don't have enough funds in my Paypal account to cover this large of purchase. Does that work for you? Please let me know ASAP! I still have time to get the Money Order sent today. I still see the listing is active. I thought you agreed to accept my $10K offer. Can you please explain. Thank you. I look forward to your response.

I just got off the phone with eBay Customer Service. eBay told me they can only look at history from 60 days ago as they were trying to find my original listng. eBay said they would investigate and we will all have to wait and see what happens.

A sincere THANK YOU to everyone. Your knid words and support is very much appreciated. It was all done to protect the investment of this great hobby. Compare the signs against the eBay listing (I really mean the towel color) LOL.

I'm kinda confused about the towel color issue. All his pics are against a black towel, yet you've posted one on a yellow towel.

Proof that that sign is mine not his. I'm the one who originally took the photos. I thought the sign looked better on the BLUE towel then the yellow. Sorry for the confusion.

Get this... seller just sent me a message. Ready to have some FUN!
"Hello, I have cancelled the auction. Please send Money Order to:
Barry Richardson
5532 18th
Lubbock, TX 79416

Please send all Monopoly money, counterfeit Cashier Checks, Money Orders, etc. (someone on here has to have graphic design skills), letters, or whatever else you can think of.

Just a thought...I'm really seriously happy that no one got scammed from this bad situation.

ChevySS, don't take things personally. I appreciate your time and effort to help other members out,
but I also appreciate the other comments explaining another way to do it should I run across the same situation.
I too have run into a dead end dealing with eBay years ago, and I have no doubt it's even worse now.
The address is legit, but wouldn't it be great if we had a member near there get the sign for you smile

To heck w/ Towel color, LOOK AT CHIPS & DISCOLORATIONS AROUND EDGE.
NO 2 SIGNS WILL HAVE DEFECTS, SAME SIGN.
