DavesMetal is a scumbag, one of the worst. Would only touch him with a spiked club.dford wrote:Never been a fan of the Goldmine scale, to broad a scale. When I sell myself I usually use a detailed description as well as the usual VG or EX,people seem to need the vg or mint in there.
The worst records I have ever received are from an ebay seller by the name of davesmetal( he has since changed id's a few times since). I ordered While Heaven Wept Ch 1 and New Electric Warriors, both described as mint( the WHW was stated as unplayed). Well , when I opened the package i kind of went bug eyed at the site of the New Electric warriors, it appeared that the art work on the cover has peeled off and was drawn back on in marker. The WHW was destroyed. I'm used to taking out my vinyl of the sleeve on the right hand side. This particular copy you take the lp out of the sleeve from north, south, east or west, I don't know how the sleeve managed to stay together! He later claimed the comp was in mint condition when it left and as for the WHW, he claimed Tom Phillips personally gave him the copy and was offended that I didn't like it! I could give a fuck if the Queen herself personally gave him a copy, it was DESTROYED.
Just thought I'd tell a few tales, my wife is sick of hearing out them
This is why I avoid selling a lot of records, too many scammers saying your grade is "wrong" when in reality it isn't just to get a discount.The Sentinel wrote:Grading records is very subjective and therefore complicated. A grading + good description would be the best
