When you go to "Read Feedback Comments," is there a fast way to only see the negative comments without having to scan through all the pages?

You can do this at http://toolhaus.org
It worked just now for me when I typed in "ernie".

ernie -- I've never bought anything from this guy. I am boycotting ernie until he stops overgrading his coins. I also won't consider joining the ANA until ernie stops overgrading his coins, as ernie claims to be an ANA member. If I were in charge of the ANA I would send ernie a copy of Photograde and ask him to stick to it or get out. But that's just me.

I agree that ernie grades too high, sometimes ridiculously too high. I tend to think of him as "Mr. Sharp" since he uses "sharp" to describe many coins on ebay that are anything but sharp. It is irritating.

On the other hand, I have to give ernie some due credit. He has done a lot to promote the hobby in the Boston area. He is the promoter of the Westford and Auburn monthly coin shows. These shows are always well attended and from my perspective, as a buyer, very well run. Since I would really miss these shows if they stopped or went downhill, I felt I had put in a few good words for the guy. Keep up the good work, ernie!

I appreciate your comments about ernie, and he might be a nice guy, but since I don't live in the Bean-town area, all I have to go on is his eBay persona. We'll have to agree to disagree since even if he found a cure for cancer ernie would still appear like every other overgrading, overhyping, overpricing coin dealer on eBay--except he would have cured cancer. If you get a chance to pass along my comments to him make sure you change all the G's to F's, it's probably the only way he'll understand them.

Watch out for e.mix. Coins are okay but sticks you for $2.95 post + mandatory $1.65 insurance. Coin came stuffed (!) into a #10 envelope with $1.31 in stamps on it. No insurance.

1. No "insured" rubber stamp on the envelope.

2. Insurance is $1.65 minimum--additional.

This was a letter envelope--long one. Postage alone was $1.31.

There were 5 stamps on the envelope totaling 1.31. No meter stickers.

That just means they didn't use USPS insurance. A very high percentage of eBay sellers use DSI or U-pic which doesn't allow you to mark the package insured. We send out every single coin insured, but by DSI, not USPS.

Also, self-insurance is perfectly legal in most states without a license. So in reality, the package only isn't insured until its lost and you don't get paid.

This is what happened to me:
http://www.ametro.net/~wmlvsct/1858...S641858-.htm

I have bought MANY coins on eBay and sold MANY without much problem. I also set up at shows and buy from and sell to dealers around where I live. The link above tells the story and shows the pictures and identity of the eBay seller. I am not so much worried about the money just wanted to let everyone have a heads up.
Thanks,
William

First, coin_man, welcome to the forum. Plenty of expertise here and lots of willingness to share.

There are several red flags on this auction and on the seller which would have kept me from bidding. First is the 20% restocking fee. There ain't no way I'm gonna risk 20% plus S&H buying a coin sight unseen from images. Photoshopped coin images are too common and too easy to make. The second red flag is the seller's feedback score and negative feedback http://www.toolhaus.org/cgi-bin/neg...=Received+by . It's not that he has a lot of negs, but all negs he does have refer to cleaning and overgrading. And third, his shipping is excessive: a coin shipped via Priority Mail should be only $4.80 (a little higher with new postal rates, I think), not $9.99 plus insurance.

BTW, coin_man, your own feedback could use a little spiffing up also.

Dear Fred Stevens,
The negatives I have are from DEADBEAT bidders. I have been selling on eBay since Jan-06-99. I have had 1490 positive feedbacks and 12 negative. If I have a DEADBEAT bidder that does not pay or if I buy something and am not satisfied, I WILL LEAVE A NEGATIVE. I know a lot of people think that they will do anything to keep a perfect score. I don't. I will trade licks with anyone. If you never leave a negative then no one will ever know who is who on eBay. Before you tell me I need to SPIFF UP my feedback I think you should look at the feedback of the people who neg'd me. Most of them are either no longer registered or they have a long string of negative feedback from other sellers. They are all retaliatory feedback. If you don't know what that means, it means you can leave me a negative feedback simply because you didn't like the negative I left you because you were a deadbeat bidder or you wouldn't make your auction good for some reason. I leave appropriate feedback for ALL transactions. If everyone would do this the deadbeats would eventually get weeded out. Most people are scared to leave a negative for obvious reasons. I really DO NOT appreciate your attitude toward me.

There's been more than one occasion that I wasn't happy with the item but didn't leave negative feedback simply because they would do the same.

I understand that but if everyone did that feedback would not work.

They will not. Negatives don't hurt a buyer one bit. Filing for your fees back will. I could have 1,000 negatives and you can't stop me from bidding on your item. But if three sellers NPB me, I won't be bidding anymore.

Actually there is a blocked bidder list. King-O-Coins was added to mine 3 days ago. I often browse eBay adding bidders with questionable feedback to my Blocked Bidder List. I do agree with you though about the NPB. I have filed them every time I don't get paid on time and no arrangments were made for payment. Also there is a limit in percentage of negative that eBay will allow.

Oh? William, some quotes from your responses to the negs you received:

" * OUCH ! Now heres a real NICE guy ! LOOK AT HIS FEEDBACK !! AVOID THIS GUY !!"

"We Shipped EXPRESS Mail and Even Threw in an Extra Bulb For This Jerk ! : {"

"WHAT?! Not Real?Very Real, And You Never Emailed Us!+ BEWARE THIS BAD eBAYer+"

Sounds to me like you might have attended estatedoctor's class in attack responses to neg/neut feedbacks. Put the blame on the other guy, never assume responsibility for your own mistakes and call him names while you're at it. Twelve (of 1329) eBay members negged you, all buyers. Not a very good track record. If you were selling coins, you would be on the COINAF watch list. Now that the shoe is on the other foot with you as a buyer, you find the fit is a little tight and you got ripped off. As an experienced eBayer, you should have known better. I also notice most of your recent sales auctions are "Private". At least in numismatics, this is a Big Red Flag. I think you joined this forum just to squeal on somebody else who beat you at your own game.
