    Scammer located and Terminated. Action taken inside.

    etta1956 was taking scans off ebay of high end cards and attempting to sell them as his own.


    He almost took [MENTION=2002]Topnotchsy[/MENTION] on that Mike Trout blue refractor.


    He was also attempting to sell a Tom Brady contenders, scan from here https://www.ebay.com/itm/2000-Playoff...57=&rmvSB=true

    an Aaron Judge green, scan here https://www.ebay.com/itm/AARON-JUDGE-...g1b&rmvSB=true

    Big thanks to FCB user [MENTION=11729]Yankees48[/MENTION] who did some detective work to verify that the owner of the judge was still in possession of the card.


    I will let Sy elaborate on the transaction if he wishes.



    The following rule has been added to the trade TOS. If you can think of better wording or a better way please post your suggestion here.

    8. FRESH IMAGES as need arises on high dollar cards admins or trade partners may request a fresh image of the card in question with a date stamp. This is to help reaffirm possession of the card. You must comply with such requests to trade here.

    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    thats the timestamp requirement.

    Suggestion is good. We will further explain the timestamp requirement. Digital timestamps won't fly.

    make it that the paper has to be under the card that way it takes a much more expert photoshopper to modify which most scammers aren't

    My guess would fall in the 10-20yr range.

    John Ryno dealt with the problem you requested he fix. All trace elements of DNA have been dealt with and disposed of. Rest assured cgilmo, nothing ties you back to the "termination" of etta1956. Bodies tend to stay buried when you hire the Ryno.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> https://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff
