Just how many ID's do we know of that this scumbag uses?

Could a list be compiled? I know you had most of them noted down at one point Jay!

He used to be purestarswars, Jediretrocards and Bespinsavers however it looks like either eBay had banned all these i.ds or Mr Edwards deleted them himself (which i doubt as some of them had 3000+ Feedback).

The only a/c i know he is using now is costablancastarwars which is registered as in Spain (He previous I.D's were registered in the UK as living in the UK even though he lives in and posts from Spain) I think he has done this as many people had reported the old a/c's for location misrepresentation / abuse (as well as his scamming) and to get around eBays ban maybe?

He is easy to spot as all his auctions look the same and he uses the same fonts.

thanks for the heads-up, i was actually contemplating going for a (seemingly) nice chewie 12back

his confusing AND LOUD desciption raised a red flag though, so i closed the tab without giving it much more thought.
but yeah, his jediretrocards alias is still active

Looks like he found the Lily Ledy Scans that are on FFRUG as well Rolling Eyes



He has been seller beater Kenner Figures riddled with REPRO's and Lily Ledy REPRO Cradbacks for 30GBP + and the sad thing is they seem to be selling like hot cakes.

He is seriously steping up the amount of shit that he is listing and is flooding the bay with REPRO card and sneaky listings!

Here are his profits from the last 30 days alone

I bought a VC Jawa off this guy and the photos actually looked better than the card when it arrived it was total PANTS, would you believe he never sent me a bubble, just the crap card and a loose figure with a hacked up Bens cape. I only bought one to see his quality which is total rubbish. I complained about the bubble being missing to him and he had the audacity to say "i dont believe someone would open it, steal a bubble and reseal it" - never heard from again.

The guys a loser.

Yep Rob can't argue with that but he's still got your money so he is still winning Sad

Like this he has done the same 1000'S of times before, 9 out of 10 don't complain or if they do they don't get a reply, even a flurry of negatives
would only make him open a new account and start over.

The most important thing is just not buy anything from him, even just to see what its like or how bad a repro it is, its all money in his pocket!
