Let me make it clear that I am not one of those who missed out on this coin from the Mint, so I'm not crying over spilt milk.
What I object to is that *jwitten* has openly bragged on CT that he has purchased at least 15 of these coins using shills to buy as many as he can when others, here, have been turned down by the Mint and all they want is one lousy coin for their collection. *jwitten* has done this before, and it takes a lot of nerve for a low-life to brag about it. It's a slap in the face to those who were left out.
Friends or paid surrogates?
Paid friends. Call it what you want, lol. All of them are personal friends that were willing to help me out and make some extra cash.
If I cherrypick a $10000 coin for $50, the collector is not entitled to a lower price because I seized an opportunity, even if it was simply because I bought it faster than that collector did. How many of us here have bragged about our cherrypicks without retribution?
And whose fault is it if a collector bids a new release through the roof simply because they gotta have it now? If such collectors didn’t have such a mentality, this frenzy would not happen.
And I remember there were 15 more who declined your offer. A .500 batting average. Actually you were just trying to make a buck and undoubtedly made a few bucks for some other people who wouldn't have necessarily known what to do. I think the point is that it was somewhat insensitive to post it where others were moaning that they couldn't buy any. Perhaps you should offer them on the CT for sale forum.
Yes it happens. I had one or two cancel my purchase and then relist. I will wait the appropriate time and and leave a neutral feedback.
Not trying to be insensitive.. just excited that I had some success. Yes, only about 50% of my friends were successful buying. Anyone and everyone could have done what I did. It was a cheap offering, which made it easy to be able to pay friends to help you get some. I've already got a buyer lined up for when they arrive.. and I guess most of yall would be mad at him for offering even more than I did. Oh well, sorry I offended everyone.
It does get old.
It wasn't a problem when you were in the game. Must be about time to hear of your "scores" one more time.
edited. At least your keeping your reputation intact.
Boo, hiss. You are a miserable old sod aren't you?
I have done very successful deals with jwitten. I was happy, he was happy and from the ones I know, his buyers of the flipped product were happy. Just sayin.
Don't be jealous.
You ain't that young, sport.
