Hi,

My partner is primarily a comic book dealer and purchased a comic book from Neil - tfmhobbyshop. The comic was stated to be in MINT condition, however it was received as VG RESTORED. He contacted Neil who stated that he was primarily a card dealer and did not deal with comics. He wasn't concerned with negative feedback being left because he deals primarily in cards. After 1 week of emails he finally agreed to accept the return, it was mailed back to him and received by him. Well, 2 weeks later and he has NOT refunded the money and now has the book. If this can happen to a comic dealer it can happen to a card dealer. We filed a paypal claim against this crook, below is proof of all emails:

FROM NEIL:

Send back for a refund.

Thanks for the pics.

FROM NEIL:

The other books sold were received satisfactorily so I
can afford taking the hit on this one.

Thanks

Thanks a ton for letting me know. I am having trouble with him myself. I bought 2 and they are not even close to mint. He doesn't want to do anything about it. We'll he said I could send them off to get graded and if they came back worse than an 8.5 he would refund my money. Can you believe that?
Thanks again,
Chris


MY FRIENDS LETTER TO PAYPAL:

I have provided paypal with proof that the item was returned and accepted
by
the seller. The seller does not answer any of my emails. He has both my
money and books. Please advise how long it will take for me to get my
money
back.
Label/Receipt Number: 0310 2990 0000 1024 5400
Status: Delivered

Your item was delivered at 11:08 am on July 20, 2006 in SAN JOSE, CA

I have sent the seller another email and he is NOT responding! He now has

his merchandise which I have returned to him as well as my Money!!!


Neil,

I don't understand why you have ignored my emails and not refunded my
payment. Package containing the returned merchandise was delivered on July
20th to
you and confirmed by the United States Postal Service. My next step will
be
contacting your local police dept. and filing a fraud claim using the
United
States postal System, which makes it a Federal Offense


Please avoid this ebay crook!!!!!

This guy is a real scam artist. He just relisted the auction stating that the comic is in MINT condition knowing full well that it is restored:

MINT 1968 MARVEL SUB-MARINER 8 SUBMARINER #8
Item number: 300014238266
