I'm Not Sure What Just Happened

I saw a listing for Gorky Park - Moscow Calling on eBay for $2,999.00. Yeah, that's not a typo. I thought it was ridiculous. I mean, the album already sells for too much ($40-$100), but $3000 is just stoopid. The seller, Swedenrules, had a 'Make an Offer' option, so I decided to be a dick and offer 1% his asking price. Not even three minutes later, he accepted. Maybe he misread where I placed the decimal. Maybe he, himself, misplaced the decimal on the listing. In any case, we have both entered into this contract, now. And $29.99 is probably the cheapest I've seen that album go for in a long time.

You bought from the biggest douche on Ebay. He is arrogant and a jackass. Beware of his cds that say "sealed new". He shrink wraps his used cds that he thinks will pass as new.

 

Be careful bro...

Poor excuse for a human being. I actually abhor this guy. Complete douche bag! Lower than whale shit. I'd rather go back to work from the Correctional Facility that I retired from then to buy from him or talk to him!!!!!!!

I actually don't hunk I've ever heard this CD. Is it actually any good? I only liked 'Sometimes at night' off the debut, so considering that, is it any better than the debut?

The general consensus puts Moscow Calling far ahead the debut, but I still prefer Gorky Park, because it was one of the first albums that got me hooked on the genre.

I bought from Bruno (swedenrules) over 5 years ago. He offered a without cases shipping option and I asked if it was well protected to help me decide which option I was going to choose. This was his response....

 

"Well protected? Listen, I always ship my items in a bubble protected package. That's as good as is gets. Don't ask for better protection when you want a cheaper rate without the jewel case. That's not how it works. If you want more protection you either pay for it or you choose shipping WITH the jewel case. I do not pay for buyer's shipping by adding more protection. That's not how it works John ok."

 

I simply chose the no cases option because I didn't want to talk to this douche anymore. You will be unsurprised to find out that sure enough he threw inserts, booklet and cds into a padded bag. Everything arrived bent and mangled.

 

He's a wanker imo and I would avoid him but each to their own.

I appreciate all the words of caution, guys, I really do, but I'm not worried. Don't get me wrong, I am expecting to get scammed, but I didn't for a second think he was gonna accept my offer. It was a joke. I think he mistakenly accepted it, and will now scam me to save him from losing a $3000 item. Well, according to him it's worth that much. Seriously, was there actually a rare pressing of this album?

I had a similar response once and was done. He is a fucking wank to the highest power...

Never purchased anything from him. He has actually won a few of my auctions over the years...

 

My guess is that he relisted everything he won for a MUCH higher price.

Well the item arrived, and all the numbers match, so I guess I didn't get scammed. So that's cool.

+1 here....the dude is an absolute cross wired prick.

 

He sent me a CD that was all beat up, I asked for a refund, got a rant about he will do the refund but I can never buy from him again because he was blocking me. Good!

At least is wasn't "new/sealed" CDs that were obviously used and resealed.

Anyway, I remember the first disc and buying it and being pissed off at the song "Try To Find Me".

 

Not because it was a bad song or anything..... I had just written a song with that exact same title about 3 weeks prior to hearing about them and buying the cassette. I thought I was a genius with a unique title that I had never heard used before. Mine was originally with "Please" in the title but I removed it in band practice. Crazy coincidence??

 

And boom.... there this wonderful ballad flows with my fucking title. Dammit!!!

 

That still pisses me off!! :doh::taz:
