Title: Welcome to modern Chinese Coins Newbie
Post by: ccl on September 04, 2018, 11:50:27 AM
I wonder how many collectors we lose after they find out later what they have done.

Sad isn't it?

The seller appears SLEAZY! Look at the language in the description, and there is NO returns. She is also trying to sell a "Chinese 1kg Silver? Panda Coin."

Kind of good and bad that eBay done away with the ability to contact the buyers. 

Case in point from personal experiences.  I was once reported and eBay send me notice that I was interfering in a sales in progress when I was informing the seller and buyers that what listed is not what the description is claiming.

Other case, I was threaten by the seller.

Another, I was threaten by the losing bidder after I snipped them.

"Please look closely at photos as I know nothing about these" in ebay language translates to "it's all fake/crap and i know it but i try to play stupid"
People who buy something like this are either total newbies or beyond help, sad in any case...

Another good reason for CCL to start his own coin sales site similar to ebay!      I read your reply to my post CCL but i think you could make bank on having a rival to ebay....

Lots of fakes, new sellers, etc... they come in waves....

I agree with this opinion.
