Wow,

Yes I did. Heide took care of it. I was under the impression that something was odd about it as we don't have an account. lol

Regards,

Some may consider it good business practice if anyone is dumb enough to fall for this crap? /ccboard/images/graemlins/mad.gif

Well now you know Ras, it was CC using your ebay account. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Lol, a few months ago there was 2 different auctions for the same SW cue. I emailed the phony seller with a bunch of questions, asked for escrow, etc. He wasn't interested.

Yesterday I got an email from the guy, he offered me the cue for $1200.00 (he was asking $2,000). The cue is an early Franklin satin finish BE merry widow.

I said sure! We'll escrow through Scott Sherbine at Profficient Billiards, and he (the seller) can send me an authentication letter from Laurie Franklin.

You think he'll do it?

CM, I know of no one less suceptable to that kind of business than the cassman. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

BTW, did you know he plays with a southwest? I cringed every time he broke with it, mostly because I beat the heck out of a cue while breaking. /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif
