There have been a lot of listings like this in the last couple weeks. Did you report them to eBay?

At least do some homework and try and get $500 or so. At these prices I'd like to own a 52 Topps Mantle for $92.

I buy all of my best, iconic baseball cards from sellers in China.

Are you saying I should be worried?

I just called eBay to report this. They submitted a report so hopefully both accounts will be closed very soon.

You're getting a check from a Nigerian Prince too! I only had to send them a $500 money order to unlock my funds and I should get my money any day now. So excited.

Default Scams

During my years as a Postmaster I was shocked at how many people fell for these scams. I saw many fake money orders and fake checks, and I have seen people buy $2500 worth of laptops at WalMart and mail them to Russia, even though I begged them not to do it. For a while, it got so bad that I had my clerks notify me when a customer was mailing a package to Russia, or Kenya or Nigeria, so I could question the customer. Many of them were mailing laptops and phones and they had already received the fake money order in payment. I gave 1 cent Postal Money orders to all of the local banks so the banks could compare real money orders to the fake ones that the banks were receiving from their customers.

It is happening all of the time and the scammers are getting rich.

DUDE! That might be a scam, I used Western Union and it was $5000. For only $500 that has to be a scam. Still better odds than buying a Cy Tobb.

My favorite by far is "Microsoft" requesting you
send $200 in iTunes gift cards to unlock your computer.

+1 on that. The emojis need some updating. It's like they're from the Prodigy days.

I second what Rick says, I can't tell you how many times we have had people come in to my Post Office in NYC crying and frantic trying to recall a package they mailed to Nigeria or Russia earlier in the day. I was lucky and got some of them back because I had an "inside' phone number at the International Service Center at JFK. If they sent it Registered or Express Mail, you had a chance of getting it back because that mail is kept separate but if it went regular air mail, you were out of luck. The supervisor at JFK told me regular air mail went on the big machine and once it went into the bag, that was it.

No one has ever gone broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.

Maybe I should feel sorry for these people, but I keep thinking that it all comes back to greed. Give these people a chance to get something for nothing (or almost nothing) and they can't wait.

I don't know how to add the link here, but there is a T205 Hoblitzell - No Stats for sale for $76.24 coming from a Chinese Seller up now.

Seems "a little" cheap, but it IS one of the last few cards that I need for my Master set!

That is already being done but in Mexico instead of China.

Great news!

I just found another beauty from China this morning. Rare card. Great condition. Great price - and a sponsored Ebay item no less. I knew I had to hit this fast before you all saw it. I just ignored the Probstein watermark - I'm sure that's just an honest mistake.
