Update Sellers To Be Concerned About

Things have been improving at the big E recently, it seems there has been more watch dogging being done by the eBay category managers. Kudos to them for starting to listen. I know it is an almost impossible job to try and keep track of all the bad sellers out there but at least some headway is being made. With that being said there are still scammers out there selling their junk, some familiar some new. Looks like there is a proliferation of low Feedback "new sellers" on the scene. Of course it could be the return of NARU ed users under different ID's

Seller: bubasteel One day private auctions, funny how a seller with the collection this guy has only wants exposure to this junk for one day. Of course there is the handy authenticity disclaimer "This card has not been graded by any grading company and will be sold as such. Take a look at the scan and decide for yourself" Need I say more?
