But for now I'm having a hard time even believing you wrote the statement above. After having read some of your email responses to people that have been shared on the other thread your writing style is completely different to the statement. As a contrast read the statement and then read this, written a week ago by Jeff on facebook:
Hi Guys sorry i keep on tapping the enter bar ,Sorry. Not used to these soical media pages although its good to keep an eye what my family and friends are doing but thats it really. My wife set me up on here as she has done on other sites, I think some of you have tryed to contacted me on in the past but had no reply (Sorry) again tec is beyond me and only do Emails and Texts or phone calls.Im here to say my piece and weather your with me or not thats for you to decide? Some of you will know me as i have sold shed loads of starwars stuff on and off ebay for near 10 years now. Not just baggie, I have been collecting mainly starwars baggies since the late 90;s and had at one point over 1000 baggies . I have sold many to some of you guys and become very good friends having the plesure of meeting some of you recently in person at the FF show .My good friend asked me along to sell my excess stock last year and i have been welcomed back since. I hope this issues does not damage this relation i have with these guys as im so upset with how this has been done .Now im here to say my piece as most of all know by now im being outted as a faker. I had been accumalating baggies mainly via ebay and private sales and recently over the last 3 years been switching to collecting carded figs as i have noted alot of my bagged figures were starting to perish/spilt /dry ect and decided that i would start to sell all these excess stock i have as really do i need these many baggies sitting in boxes in the loft?? So thats the main reason i have sold so many not that i have been making them thats maddness . I have sold many of these so called fakes to Frank mewesway back and he accepted them so had no reason to deem them as any thing but genuine. I know one of my soures was a guy called Gratson cant remeber his first name but spent £1000's of pounds with him which is the source of most of my SW-a , b and d, which the text is not right i been told and only found out last night
You beat me to it, Matt.
Of course Jeff's response is a great positive step towards making this right, but to me the response reads like someone who got caught doing something he knows he shouldn't have done - whether he made them or knowingly sold fakes ones sold by others (it was either of these options, neither of which is good) - and now he is trying to make things right only because he got caught
. Like I said, it's better than getting caught and not trying to make things right, but it still doesn't answer any of the questions and evidence posted.
And to glob on to what Matt said, the most recent response from Jeff looks like it was written by a lawyer or at the very least a very good writer. While it's curious that at the same time Jeff's response posted to Echo was filled with grammatical errors, run on sentences, and otherwise looks like it was written by a totally different person. And please don't try to explain that difference by using something like Jeff's own words in the Echo post: "[I'm] [n]ot used to these soical [sic] media pages." Writing a response on a social media page is simply typing. Just like responding on a forum is merely typing.
Time will tell if Jeff lives up to his promises, and it can't be ignored that if he does so it goes far towards making things right. But it certainly doesn't answer any of the many allegations against him.
