Hi guys just wanted to let you all know to look out for Ebay seller wfoust2pjf.

I'll tell you my tale of woe. I bought a Tri-Logo IG-88 back in Oct. 2010. Although it wasn't that long ago my knowlage wasn't what it is now when it comes to MOCs. I thought it looked ok in the pics and asked the seller a couple of questions. All seemed well and I won the auction. Now we've all been there, where something we really want arrives, And we look it over but don't REALLY look at it as well as we should because we're all pumped up about this awesome item. Into the display it went and sat. Looked at almost every day but in back and among all the other booty.

Anyway last week I took it out to look close at it for fun. Something looked off that I hadn't noticed before. Long story short I checked with a collector I've since become pals with and he verrified my fears. The bubble was half ripped off at some point and resealed. Nowhere in the description was it said it was resealed. I wouldn't have bought it otherwise. Now that I know what to look for I would have seen this myself. Live and learn.

The auction record is long since gone from ebay so I can't show it to you. Long gone is my chance to get my money back. All I want to do here is warn eneryone to be wary of this seller.

Most members here probably could have spoted this a mile away and I feel really stupid for having been duped but wanted to share the warning.

Theres also no indication the actual seller did this Paul, he may have bought it like you and moved it on once finding out the same, does this seller still exist on ebay?

Yep he's still there and selling as we speak. Contacting him just for fun to let him know I'm pissed. He may not have known it was resealed but I have no way of knowing that.

Of course he will deny it and some time has passed until you noticed it but good luck trying m8, no harm in that. A lesson learned eh.

Oh I don't expect to hear back or anything done. Just to make myself feel better. I like to yell at people when they deserve it.
