Default Ok I have seen enough JOEY FARINO board member

I refunded him $650 for the R315 Ruth he bought from me due to supposed employment problems on January 11th. Now he is bidding and winning expensive items on ebay.

Anyone dealing with him, I say beware.

I asked him why he is bidding on these and winning some and his reply was that he was bidding for a friend of his friend gives him the cash.

I am calling BULLSHIT on Joey Farino!!



Looks like another Dan Mckee bad judgment refund:

Here is Mr. Joey Farino 2 days after I refunded him and 5 days after he said he lost his job

His bids on January 13th and 15th won for a total of $1189.00

Find it interesting that Joeyf keeps asking the board for prices on graded cards from vcp. Buck it up and buy a subscription if it's so important to know a price. It's just plain rude in my opinion.

Dan,
The problem is you don't sell shiny basketball cards.
Yours was just an old Ruth card.

Next time don't be so mean to Joe. I wonder if Adam's been banned with you?

If getting banned for what happened aint a badge of honor in the collecting world then nothing is!

Is this the same guy who was inquiring about a '54 Aaron in Pro-6 holder? And apparently wasn't unemployed enough to keep him from inquiring about how low the seller was willing to go on price.

I thought deadbeat buyers on eBay were given 3 strikes before they were booted.
Isn't that the case anymore?

Honest question here...Does he seem to be a guy that's just in over his head in the hobby? Or is he just scatter-brained and indecisive?

Sad thing was I was the guy who was buying the card from Dan, had the card not got lost I would have had a nice VG-VGEX card for way less than what my one in REA cost me.

I added Joey's eBay ID italianz31 to my blocked bidder list months ago and would suggest everyone to follow my lead.

I will post below a sampling of items Joey recently 'purchased' on eBay, then reneged, and were subsequently relisted.

Maybe I'm just naive but how do you know he bid on this stuff when Ids are blocked? Why do buyers have "private feedback"?

Buyers who ONLY make purchases can set their feedback to private so that it cannot be viewed.

"I thought deadbeat buyers on eBay were given 3 strikes before they were booted.

It sure doesn't seem that way. What's more, I've seen people with less than 50 total feedback that have 20 retracted bids in one year.

Unlike some others, I did not really have a problem when ebay got rid of leaving buyer feedback. But that action should have backed that up with very strong and enforceable sanctions against non-paying bidders and chronic "bid retracters". It seems to me they have done the opposite and these kind of guys never go away. Often they end up screwing up auctions, whether you are involved buying or selling.

Default identities- Sam1952 & JoeyF both gone.....

It is too difficult to identify someone virtually, many times. I have information leading me to believe we have a rat in the house with the whole SAM1952/JoeyF situation. I have suspended both of them from this board pending both of them sending me proof that they are who they are. I have asked for fronts and backs of their licenses OR some other hard copy proof. Once both satisfy me (I am a pushover) that they are in fact different people, then after a few more questions to Joey about this buying habits issue, all will be good and they can come back. As I told someone yesterday, I am rather protective of this board. best regards

If ebay hadn't purchased paypal a few years ago...they'd be in trouble with all of the lame-ass changes they've made in the last few years...it really is hurting their auction business...and it sucks to be a seller sometimes!

I don’t think that JoeyF and Sam1952 are one in the same. Sam1952 has only posted in one thread about a 1939 Play Ball Ted Williams card that he bought. Sam1952’s eBay username is jasonchicas and he is registered in California. If you do search and look at his feedback, you can see where he bought the Williams from Probstein in late October.

http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAP...ab=AllFeedback

JoeyF however is from Washington. I realize that your location can be manipulated, but I don't think either is smart enough to figure that out.

As I told both of them, as soon as they prove who they really are, they will be back on the board. They might not be different people. This is only a permanent suspension if they choose it to be. I think that is pretty fair, no? If someone asked me to prove who I am because they had concerns I was someone else, I would prove it in 2 minutes, and move on. It's just that simple.

So what if they are? You can't be friends with anybody on the message boards? They're not accused of being friends. They're accused of being the same person, which I really don't believe they are.

So what? What's wrong with frequently posting in the same thread about cards we buy? We do it all the time in the monthly pick-up threads. Does that mean we are all alts? What proof do you have other than they post in the same thread?

Sorry, Leon, but I donít understand how your idea of scanning the drivers licenses will prove anything. Letís just say for a minute that you are right and they are one in the same. Letís also say that Joey produces the proof that you are asking for, but Sam1952 canít. Are you going to let Joey back on the board and not Sam1952? If they really are one in the same and you let the one who complied back on the board and not the other, then what did you really resolve?

In other words, you banned them because you thought they were one in the same. If they really are one in the same and you let one on and not the other, what have you accomplished? The only way your idea would work is if they both complied or if they both ignored you. Then you could either reinstate both or leave both banned. I just fail to see how your idea works.

You guys are being ridiculous! Don't get me wrong, I am not trying to excuse Joey's behavior and the fact that he stiffed Dan (and others). IMO, he should be banned for that alone. However, to accuse two people of being one in the same w/o any proof is pretty irresponsible.

So what? What's wrong with frequently posting in the same thread about cards we buy? We do it all the time in the monthly pick-up threads. Does that mean we are all alts? What proof do you have other than they post in the same thread?

Sorry, Leon, but I donít understand how your idea of scanning the drivers licenses will prove anything. Letís just say for a minute that you are right and they are one in the same. Letís also say that Joey produces the proof that you are asking for, but Sam1952 canít. Are you going to let Joey back on the board and not Sam1952? If they really are one in the same and you let the one who complied back on the board and not the other, then what did you really resolve?

David,
Thanks for your opinion. If you will go back and see what I said, I said that Joey will still have some questions to answer. I also said that licenses were one way to prove identity but I am open to others too. Is it that difficult to understand? To me, this proving identity thing is so easy it's a no-brainer. And it keeps the board safer by being diligent. Just my opinion though. Also, you obviously didn't get the gist of what I said. I said both need to prove it. If one does and the other doesn't, then I will go from there. best regards

Fair point.

It's nothing worth arguing over anyway. If he complies with Leon's request than it's water under the bridge... The main issue is the Dan incident, which seems to have slipped through the cracks...

David,

Very well said....I dont know with a 100% certainty that Joeyf/jboog/mantlefan81/blackitalian/italianz31 is Sam1952 but I do know keeping both off would be the easiest answer. Easy is not always the best but sometimes its the only answer.

While I appreciate the "easiest" answer I absolutely will NOT take that route. I will be fair to both of those folks. I can see Sam coming back upon proof but Joey still having quite a bit of 'splaining to do.

David- help me understand what your issue is with having someone prove who they are? Is it really that big of a deal? As I said, I put myself in their shoes, I would just do it (and have) and move on. best regards

Anybody with that many aliases is not somebody I want to do business with. Leon, if you get requests to use the login name realdstraate, dstraate81, sandbergfan81, or dboog, they are not me, they are my err. business partners.

Glad you asked. I have absolutely no issue with having someone prove who they say they are...when there is probable cause to think otherwise. However, you have no cause. You said, "I have information leading me to believe we have a rat in the house with the whole SAM1952/JoeyF situation." No, you don't any information other than some other board member's suspicion. If I am wrong, lay out your information. I still stand behind my earlier statement: To accuse two people of being one in the same w/o any proof is pretty irresponsible.

We just see this differently so let's just agree to disagree. As Pete said, let's get back to the main issue which seems to have slipped through the cracks...

I'm sure Leon's pretty savvy about these things but in today's world you can easily have multiple IP addresses and area codes for phone numbers.

Because of my work environment (I work out of one location) I have three area codes and can shift my computer around to have three different IP addresses (not all at the same time, but I could if I used multiple computers). I can make a quick IP address swap with a 10 second hardware change or a quick software change.

Just because someone calls you from one area code and another calls from a different area code doesn't mean they're not the same person. I'd rather have them both conferenced in but even then it only takes a person to ask a friend to pretend to be someone else...

don't you just love technology and people that aren't very truthful... $hit, here I go.... I love our country but I hate the fact that criminals can get away with all types of crap because we belong to a "sensitive" society that has to give everyone the benefit of the phucing doubt and even if someone proves they're a phucing loser we let them "rehabilitate" themselves so that they can return to society and phuc someone else... Sometimes I think some of those Islamic laws aren't so bad.... you steal, you get your hand cut off... do you think that type of deterant works? Ask a Muslim that knows someone that had their hand hacked off.... no, I'm not advocating that we make drastic changes to our laws but punishments with a bit of a bite might be cool.... please, don't get me started on capital punishment...

oops... did I really type all of that... sorry.... No Leon, I don't think you need to hunt down Joey and shoot him... although I'll venture to guess that some people may disagree with that....

You would have been better off just shutting up after you said the above statement. Writing styles, other peoples thoughts, both SAM and Joey commenting on similar things...SAM not returning my emails in a timely manner etc etc....all give me enough cause to ask a harmless request. As for you David, as my father used to say "Son, you would argue with a billboard and give it a 30 minute headstart". You run your board your way I will do my best with this one. I will usually error on the side of caution, which is what I am doing with SAM....Again, I am sure you see it differently. My mind isn't changing so I suggest we move on from this. thanks again....

Leon, you forgot to mention that Sam and Joey were also reading the board coincidently at the same time.

Whether it's "fair" or not, I would just rather not have someone on this board who we have reason to suspect would screw you in a deal.

That being said, I appreciate the fairness Leon desires and how he isn't all about censoring and banning people for every little thing.

Leon has always been able to whip me into shape effectively, and that's quite a task.

Default As far as I'm concerned...

Leon runs this board and he can manage it how he sees fit and solely on his opinion and discretion alone. Anyone who disagrees with his management style can always take a walk or just close their eyes!
