[meteorite-list] avoid 11 new ebay auctions- can IMCA help?

Ok, I think that it is time to say something positive about Steve. I
have had about 20 transactions with him over the last 8 months, and
there was only one problem that was corrected by him pretty fast. Other
than that, all bids I won were exactly what he offered (and some GREAT
deals amongst them *g*).
Well, having said that - I don't understand him in some aspects. Having
no pics with most of his auctions is pretty - well, strange, but that's
up to him, I think. Some auctions are priced ridicoulosly high, others
unbelievably low - again: this is up to him :-).
I don't think that Steve is ripping others off on purpose, sometimes one
COULD think that he doesn't really know what he does. But hey, there are
only a few professional traders - Steve is, like me, just a collector,
If Steve made a mistake, I am sure he will react and correct it. As long
as he does, everything's fine - don't you think so?

I don't know why you penny pinchers continue to purchase from someone
who doesn't adhere to good IMCA practices.
I have no compassion for you.
Scales is one, no reference books, what other clues do you need?
Anyone to tight to throw in a riker mount box to keep customers happy
should up his price to cover the box.
I think there are a number of very good dealers out there that deserve
your commerce more,
would you like me to send you an off list list?
Again, I offer no support for those that don't learn from others grief.
