You guys are great for pointing this kind of stuff out! I almost bit the bullet on several Diamond Stars from this seller, but what caught my eye was the high negative feedback - all claiming use of stock photos. The prices were so good though - now it makes sense - not stock photos but photoshop. Pretty clever. Sleazy, but clever. Seller always responds to negatives that the card sent is the actual card - which is true!

My only question is, how is it that 99.1% of this seller's customers leave positive feedback?

Maybe it doesn't matter so much on a graded card but I liked this scan, even though I had to go to the eye doctor after looking at it (different seller).

Bottom line is I think enhancing scans is pretty common out there.

Battlefield has been doing that for years now. I am really surprised that you are just now catching on with them. They and Great Lakes Auction House have a history of buying nice looking PSA 4-6 cards, cracking them out, and selling them as NM/MT.

Bobby,
There is a difference between cracking out and giving an opinion on a card. A person can say what they want. A picture is worth 1000 words. However, outright altering pictures is not legal.

And if you knew for many years why not speak up as it seems like many others did not.

In another thread I mentioned the importance of leaving accurate feedback (even if a refund is issued). Sellers like this are the reason why. If we allow sellers to engage in shady practices with no real consequences then they have no incentive to change their ways.

Alex, fraud is different from ignorance.

With 35 revised feedbacks, it seems that users are leaving accurate feedback, however, the users of these 35 revised feedbacks were somehow "persuaded" to revise.

I had an issue recently on another item with a different seller and had a long, drawn out case ensue. Eventually I got a refund, but then I went to leave negative feedback and ebay blocked it, presumably saying that since I got a refund and was made whole that the seller didn't deserve negative feedback. It was weird, but it was the first time in years I'd tried to leave negative feedback and just figured it had been just another asinine policy change.
