eBay seller manualguy53

I contacted the seller manualguy53 at eBay and asked about a manual he had for sale. I asked if it was genuine or a copy. When I later tried to purchase the manual, he has blocked me with no reason. I suspect he is selling counterfit products. Or he is just an asshole. Either way, beware...

Re: eBay seller manualguy53

I just asked him the same question. If nothing else, he might get nervous.

Yeah, I tried to see if I could report something to ebay but apparently being blocked for no reason is within a sellers right...

Hey, they saved 5 bucks and kept a thief in business. What more can you ask for?

Yeah, go figure...

I just reported him to ebay. I doubt anything will happen however...

I guess he blackballed me because I called him out. Just as well, I wanted a real manual not a stolen one...
