Not as funny as her pricing for shipping. I took a look at the other
auctions she is selling - his old comics. Not sure how she calculated the
shipping charges but they aren't consistent: 50 comics shipped to you for
$49.99, 1000 shipped to you for $23.99, but only $19.99 for the

Think of the karma debt, guys. Buying from a lady who stole it
from her cheatin' hubby?

To be accurate, the hubby she accuses of cheating so as to
justify the theft and sale.
Persons who regularly engage in the intellectual pursuit commonly
known as 'critical thinking' will avoid accepting the accusation
on its face.
Most people aren't biting on her auctions either, probably due to the
excessive shipping charges.
Even if she has another ebay account (against the rules or not) that
makes here familiar with ebaying, she is just too knowledgable or
efficent with these auctions...a HTML ad, for example. Spelling and
grammar errors suggest a younger person, possibly male.
True Story > I went to a garage sale several years ago that was full of "Guy
stuff" and this gal was selling off her hubby's stuff, tools, fishing gear
and you name it. Nothing had a price tag on so shoppers had to ask about
everything. If someone would ask about a price she would say 2 bucks, didn't
matter if it was a 100.00 rod and reel or a high dollar router, it was 2
bucks. She would just laugh and kept repeating I'll teach that &^*%%$. RM~
Funny, but sounds like BS.
The seller is charging $19 to ship 20 comic books, and will not combine
shipping, but has zero feedback. Most newbies don't know what combined
The shipping for the TS is $20 PLUS actual shipping.
Those auctions smell.
On the whole, I agree. If you look at the "sport" cards, there must be
over 150K of them. She knows enough to say that they are from the 1950s to
the present but she suggests that they have been packaged already,
randomly. Won't even say what "sport" they are -- the few images show
baseball, but the rest could be Lithuanian football. (No offense to any
Lithuanians - I just wonder about the US market value of those cards.)
Now, there is a very old story about a jilted woman who sells her
ex-husband's stuff on the cheap because he said, "Sell my stuff and send me
the proceeds". If that were the case here, selling at bargain basement
prices would make lots of sense. But here, the woman claims she will use
the proceeds for a trip, so she would want high sales prices. IMO, the
only thing suggesting that this is legit is that she starts the auction
prices very low. Also, I checked with a woman who "understands" this
situation and she thinks it sounds legit -- "Just get the stuff out of
here." -- Igor
