My tormentor has returned on Rebelscum claiming to be a Palitoy Rep saying he has a 30 Back Luke Bespin, Leia Bespin, IG88, FX7, Bespin Guard and Bossk on both A and B cards all in mint condition and a 12 Back Palitoy VCJ also in mint condition, no pictures yet! I know everyone will call me naïve but what would you do if someone sent you a PM offering you that stuff for sale?
Because he's holding a thermal detonator!!

I'd ignore him, block him from messaging you ( if that's possible on Rebelscum ) and move on and forget about it, remind yourself if it's too good to be true then it most likely is, the guy can't even supply you with pictures, massive red flag!.. save yourself the anxiety and block him completely.

And with this much money involved in a transaction done over the internet never deal with somebody you don't know or trust, with this much money try and meet in person so you can view the items in the flesh before handing anything over. You most likely know all this stuff that i'm telling you anyway but these are just my views on the situation.

You can pretty much get to and from any part of the UK or Europe for under £200 so I would arrange a viewing in person (after several messages with photos) and then complete the transaction that way. Unless any of the items offered are never before seen items then there is no reason for him not to share photos and even if they are he could add a digital watermark to them to prevent them being used for reproductions/scams etc

If he's serious that he has them and is offering to sell them to you, at the very least he'll know he will have to show pictures.
Ask him where he's based once you get that get him to take a picture of one of the mocs you choose. Put it alongside his local newspaper with his user name on it. As everyone has said that could be anyone just bullshiting you that's read your most wanted list. Until you see proof I really wouldn't waste my time going over it.

Yeah, because in this day and age putting an image up online or attaching it to an e-mail is such a problem.

Ignore him, Anthony. If there are no photos it didn't happen!

This is one of the two emails I recieved from this guy yesterday on Rebelscum:

Hi Anthony,

I don't know how you feel about this but my friend has mentioned to me a couple of other palitoy collectors who will be interested in some of my figures, I don't know your financial situation but it may be unlikely that you can afford all ive got, that's why my friend contacted a couple of collectors.

My Prices have been sought from my friend who to be honest has never seen any figures so mint and perfect.

30 back boba fett- £35k
45a boba fett - £10k
12 Vinyl cape jawa - £15k
30 backs - Bespin Security Guard a and b - £10k
IG-88 a and b £10k
Luke Bespin a and b - £18k
Leia Bespin a and b - £10k
Yoda - £5k
Ugnaught - £3k
Bossk a and b - £15k

There are others but at least that's a start on prices.

Cheers Jim

I have asked for pictures and recieved nothing, I am sure it is all Bullshit but I still find myself responding like a mug all the same!

I presume he means a Luke Bespin B card but it is still way over priced in my opinion.

10K for a Leia B card no chance, Darren Simpson had a Leia B card for sale I wonder what he sold his for?
