Collectibles scammer now collects bad reviews.
This may get long but I will do my best to reign my ramble-y self in.
(tl;dr at the end)
Names faces and some details have been changed to protect the innocent and prevent more harassment.
My little brother(in-law…known from here out as LB) told me about a decent sized FB group devoted to a type of collectible we are both into. I join the group and he tells me about this great deal he took part in. The group has sponsored vendors a.k.a. people who throw a few bucks at the group’s mod and they get a shiny star saying everyone should trust them…keyword should.
