Let's be honest none of these grading companies have time machines so cannot say 100% if things are legit or not, doesn't look good though.

Can anyone confirm receipt of a refund in the last few weeks from Jeff?

Agreed :cry: In my opinion the evidence which has come to light over the last couple of weeks has convinced me of 'beyond reasonable doubt'.
If i had been wrongly accused of such crimes, i'd be putting up a far better fight.

It seemed from some of the earlier posts on this thread that Jeff has/had a number of friends on here. Are any of them still talking to him about this and encouraging him to address directly all the accusations made?

I'd be interested to know if anything has progressed with UKG too, especially as it seems a couple of fakes may have been graded which unfortunately makes getting his leftovers graded a little pointless.

So odd that no one has replied to say they have returned an item, giving the scale and the money involved.

Obviously the guy isn't going to have the balls to appear at FF either, he's logged in almost every day, probably read the threads had a chuckle and then got into his shiny BMW paid for by you guys.

You guys are way too nice.

At a minimum someone affected should contact the CAB and get some free advice, then if necessary form a group, gather evidence (already done) and then take legal action.

Hi, I'm trying to email Jeff Glanville and I'm getting a failure bounce back. Does anyone have another way to contact him?
Thank you!

Now there's a question eh, the silence is deafening, I would not mind one myself, but I am not sending my stuff back in hopes that I get one.

Folks should not be surprised at the lack of people coming forward for a few reasons.
1st off this whole thing is being presented on a dying platform. Forums are dying off (which is not new news by any means) so the audience now a days is smaller.
2nd Even posting on facebook is only reaching a limited audience. With the hundreds / thousands of FB groups and pages dedicated to vintage this story was / will be buried quickly with other people making new posts so a lot of people won’t even see the post.
3rd, I see this in other realms of collecting also (Mostly horror replica world). People ultimately don’t care after a week or so. Sure a “bad seller” was outted and that person is a huge piece of shit and for a week that person is crucified. But after a few weeks people will forget all about it. We as collectors in general are the biggest embracers of “Forgive and forget”
4th…. People who may of read the whole thing, and keeping up with it may not speak out in hopes that they can sell off the baggie they may of got from Jeff to a unsuspecting buyer via eBay or FB because of points 1-3.

...Just my opinion
