iGavel — Questionable practices/ Fraud
I have shopped this site over 4 years purchasing 5 items, all of different categories. This site has always been a thrill, even if only to observe the various auction pieces.
Within the last year i had noticed one paticular bidder, (How could you not- the ID, HAHAHA. Not only imature, but rude & arrougant.) The ID has since changed twice. First to 'silverking' & now the buyer is simply, 'winner'. This buyer has started bidding on nearly everthing pertaining to gold or silver. It is understandable that some would invest in these pieces, although I have to question if this buyer is paying the premium' of 20%???. If that number is added to the winning bid, the price of the items are nearing retail. Plus then you have the added cost of shipping/handling/insurance.
This buyer will bid coins, watches & clocks, jewellry, silver & virtue at tens of thousands per auction.
I am sickened by the 'In your Face' attitude portrayed by the ID Igavel has allowed, but also the fact that acquiring a fine piece at a decent price is no longer available to anyone. I wonder how many others have observed this and feel as i do.
