What does "Jim" say when you ask for proof that these items exist?

How exactly does he propose any transaction takes place? You just send him however many tens of thousands of pounds?

Alarm bells all over this mate until proof of ownership at least. The dude is having you on big time.

And, if you're reading this "Jim", prove me wrong.

Well, I don't know Jim myself, but please could you tell him I have a very rare triple-telescoping red-octagon dark brown vinyl blue pin-head R3 Skywalker Organa on a Palitoy 31C back. It's his for just £50,000 in bit coins.

Thanks.

:shock: that's over 100k this guys not fucking around. Hopefully he soon sends you the pictures I too would really love to see them like everyone else :D
In all honesty Anthony if he is serious I see no reason why he won't let you view them in some kind of way.
Just be careful you don't take a large amount of money somewhere to meet this guy if your unsure who you really are in contact with.
Remember how the Dude's and Walter's deal went :roll:
I think I know by this stage what my reply to him would be, but you have to judge for yourself if you believe him or not.

This is the same guy who claimed to have both the first 12 figures on both 30 Back and 45A in mint condition but when I asked him for pictures he never produced any so the likelihood is that it is all bullshit. The replies have been pretty quick until I asked for pictures, so I will have to wait to see what happens.
Because he's holding a thermal detonator!!

My word, he has put some serious prices on those figures, I think he's missed a '1' in front of his valuations for Yoda and Ugnaught, really tough figures to get hold of, I certainly agree with other members comments, until you see pictures, class the guy as a total crank spouting bullshit.

It would be great to see some photos, if you ever did get to do a deal for that sort of money I would travel by armed guard, the thing in this hobby is that things like this do come out of nowhere, however in this case it does sound too good to be true.

And picture proof sent *after* payment to show you're serious first lmao :lol:

A very good point also about going to meet someone you don't know with THAT much cash on ya, i'd never do it myself!, someone would want to plan to mug you for £500 let alone £100k, too dangerous doing a deal like that.

What's this "Dude's and Walter's deal" all about?.. what happened?

I just received this message from Jim on Rebelscum because I dared to ask for Photo's:

Hi Anthony

I have decided not to sell my figures to you, you haven't progressed our talks to the level I was hoping, I wont be contacting you about my figures again.

All the best

Jim

To which I responded:

Thank god, you don't have any figures hence the reason you can't send any pictures, you are just a Clown! Hopefully the Circus will return soon and you can rejoin them!

:D I was referring to Jeff "the dude" Lebowski and Walter Sobchak. The deal they got involved in alot of money was to change hands. It turned out the deal was a complete hoax! And once Walter's special Ops training kicked in he made sure it ended up a total clusterfuck.
