Hello all,

I have to sell part of my collection to recoup my money from getting scammed. I need to recoup $350. I will post pics of what I am selling. I will be taking offers. I am depressed...

Thanks
Noah

Just slow down and don't do anything rash that you will regret later.

I know that. I know what I want to sell. They can be found easy. I just need to recoup the $350. I know what is rare and not an everyday item. I will sell the stuff that I know I won't regret. Thanks.

Believe it or not,I had a similar situation happen to me.
I frantically sold something to cover the cost of something I felt a long distance seller had scammed me out of.

So I sold a priced possession from my collection,only to have the long distance seller,whom I thought scammed me,eventually come out of the woodwork and send me the item as promised.
And then to add insult to injury,I see the prized possession I just sold,bring 3X more on eBay,then I sold it for.

....So today,I regret selling that prized possession.
And no regrets buying that long distance item I thought I was being scammed out of.

Patience..

just live by the golden rule of any collecting hobby, if you don't have it to spend, then dont spend it. keep a seperate 'mad money' fund.

Not that it would sting any less to get burned like this, but at least you wouldnt then have to sell off any items in your collection.

on another note, I emailed the seller to see if they still had it available for sale, this should at least tell us if its a scam or a misunderstanding

just so you know, I got a reply from the seller of the sign and he/she said 'No' its no longer for sale.

so maybe they fully intend to send your sign still?
