I've just looked at the other listings, notice 2 are marked as sold?
Has someone bought & had contact details?

Beware I smell FEEEESH

Post by type21f »

That is the technique...post an item and then mark it as sold.. remove the description etc. This gives post count and the impression the seller is credible...
EC used to do this..
Hence I asked the questions..Who where what why when how..
No response....
Definitely Haddock..
EC goes under that many names I am sure even he does not know the answers..

Be very careful bidding or buying on (what) look like those Enders pans. I bought something very similar from him, but did not have the leather strap.

Looks very familiar.

You’re aware he’s still posting on the SSVC Facebook group? Posting under “VW Peter”

Is this the same guy referenced in this Facebook post? Can't link directly to it because it's a closed group, but it's on the to Vintage VW Accessories, Toys and Memorabilia group. Several follow-up posters said they've been scammed by the guy in the last couple of years...
