    This thread should not exist. There is a cost of doing business here, either you pay it in the extra few cents to use tracking or you pay it in the lost packages.

    I had a different card from the same set sent back today with postage due. PWE and thick cards. The post office lady undercharged my girlfriend. Both cards were shipped around the same time at the end of september. I may or may not have used a pwe sending his thick auto/jsy/rc card. I honestly dont remember. Im not 100 percent sure this dude scammed me anymore.

    Really? After all the "I could tell by looking at him that he was a scammer" drama the real truth is that you lack the ability to competently mail a package.

    This is pretty sad.

    Regardless of how stupid this whole thing was, atleast he told the truth as he got potential info and admitted he may have been wrong.. Would've been easy to continue or disappear from the thread.

    If nothing else, props for that.

    I had the exact same situation the first poster had! As soon as I saw his Facebook profile pic I realized he bought the card not for collecting purposes but for making lines of cocaine! I refunded his $5.00 immediately and donated another $100 to get him enrolled in drug rehab.

    EDIT: Update! Card was returned to me with major side and corner damage, and a fine white powder all over it.



    Here's a pic of the card I sent him before it was returned:

    The internet allows people to jump to conclusions and potentially ruin the reputation of someone without any real proof. At least have something more than his picture to try and make a case.

    I could not agree more. Irresponsible thread and posts from the OP.
    "...it just sounded to me like he felt like he did not do it."

    i woudln't give him any credit....even now when he "comes clean" , he still has to shirk and blame....note he threw in the comment about the post office undercharged his girlfriend...not him...but someone else....so he's now shifted the blame from the obvious scammer to either his girl or the postal employee.....not sure which , but he obviously feels one or both of them is incompetent....

    and the sad thing is all that could have been avoided had this experienced seller actually shipped a thick card properly....

    It is technically the post office workers fault for selling my girlfriend a 70 cent stamp on a package. It is also my fault for not knowing this could happen. I always thought I was safe from lack of shipping charges as long as the transaction went through a cashier at the post office.

    new/duplicate account ??

    also , as an "experienced" seller with "300 pwe sales in well over 10 years" , OP should at least be aware of the postal rules and regulations....along with rate changes , the usps frequently updates their policies and they post these changes far ahead (usually 2-3 months if not longer) of their implementation......rigid items are not supposed to be sent in pwe's anymore....i've actually seen a postal employee take an envelope and literally bend it in half to see if was considered rigid when the customer wanted to send it as a standard one-ounce letter.....i won't even get into the whole thing about trying to ship thick cards in a pwe....

    also , i can't speak for everyone , but if i'm selling something , i either ship the item myself of AT LEAST make sure the person shipping it DOES know the rules.....the old "sorry , my girlfriend got hosed by a stupid postal worker" excuse is pretty lame
