    Yes- not a super villain. More of an annoyance. An annoyance in a hobby for us that we use to get away from real life annoyances.

    Just like being the first to list the new Northwoods Coolidge jack and of course using stock photos. Of course not in hand unless he drove and got them himself.

    Probably just another cut and paste from someone else's ad.

    You know; Buy With Confidence, 100% Positive Feedback, Ships Fast, etc.

    At present he is more than an annoyance IMO, but it wouldn't take that much effort to get there. He just needs to stop using others photo's and text and give accurate descriptions. He would still be a flipper but at least an honest one. They can still be annoying but I do believe in capitalism.

    Every thief has their apologist, sad to see it coming from a moderator.

    "Dishonestly using some pictures and an item description " as you've described is a violation of Federal copyright law. Doesn't matter how you feel about the level of dishonesty, he's a liar and a thief and you're defending him and his actions because you got a good deal apparently.

    How many times can you do something and people still consider it a mistake? Just asking for someone. Someone named Mac.

    Then why does it say so in your Ebay listings? Further, why are you listing used items as new on Ebay?

    That would not be accurate by looking at the eBay listings in this thread.

    IT DOES NOT SAY I'M A DEALER IN A SINGE LISTING, IF I MADE A MISTAKE ONE OUT OF 100'S OF LISTINGS THEN GUILTY AS CHARGES , I'M NOT PERFECT. AND THE GUY STEELNUT PAID MY ASKING PRICE, NO COLLUSION, I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW HE WAS A BLADE FORUM MEMBER. HEH YOU GUYS ARE WASTING A LOT OF ENERGY YOU COULD SPEND ON KNIVES, AND HAVE MORE TO SHOW FOR, IF I MAKE AN ERROR IN A LISTING I'LL BE THE ONE TO PAY FOR IT, NOT YOU. I'M NOT ALL UP IN YOUR BUSINESS, YET. YALL DO KNOW WHAT I DID IN THE ARMY FOR 26 YEARS.MAC

    Here in town we've got a few houses or groups of folks who spend their weekends scouring garage sales. Then every month or two they have their own sale and flip all the stuff they bought.

    They go early, bargain hard and try to scoop all the "good" stuff first. One house even has their whole basement decked out with shelves like a store.

    For some of them it's a secondary income. For others it's just how they pass the time. Seems like this one fit's in that same pigeonhole.

    Do you think using all CAPS helps?
    You've been busted listing used knives as new (and you are still doing it)
    You've been busted using other people pictures without permission
    You've been busted stealing other peoples writings without permission
    You've been busted saying you are a GEC dealer when you are not.
    You lie about all of this being a "mistake" over and over.
    You have zero credibility.
    And it's all your fault.
    Rebuilding your character and credibility will take some time.
    Good luck with that.
    You are off to a very poor start

    You knowingly list things as new that are used. You are cheating buyers for profit.
