Master Woo eBay Deal or Scam? DEAL!

Anyone know if this is legitimate? It doesn't look that way so far.

Given his feedback and the small number of auctions he has run, I would say scam.

I'd agree it seems very fishy. 66.7% feedback is really poor and, the person recently changed names which is also not a good sign. I'd stay clear as I have fallen for a scam on ebay before and there is little recourse unless you pay via paypal or a credit card which at least you can dispute the charges.

We're on the right trail. Flies and the undead go together like bullets and guns.

I don't trust look twice at anything on ebay without a picture!
My guess would be that they are repaints and the cards are just computer print-offs.

He's telling people to not bid on his auctions! I am 99.99% certain it is a scam.

I saw this joker before. He has about 14 Woo's for sale. I wouldn't go near his auctions with a 10-ft pole.

Codo Woo who?
Actually at one point, he had 17 at the same time....which is against eBay rules. He's actually had a bunch of his original auctions pulled because he was originally telling people that they had to pay an extra $1.50 if they used a credit card through PayPal (against the rules AND the law).

If it is not a scam...I wonder how he got so many Woo's with 2x cards..

But you're right, it might be repaints with copies of the card. What is weird is that he used to have pictures on his auction, so I don't know where they went.

Odd...very very odd.

Because of the whole repaint thing, I don't bid on Promos unless they are still in their packages.

Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

He's gotta be familiar with the site. His e-bay name is uniqueheroscaper. Who other than people on this site call themselves "Scapers"?

I saw these a day ago and thought, WTF. If it was not a scam, why doesn't he just do a buy it now option?

What kind of person spends $135.48 for Sir Hawthorne and has yet to ever put him into battle?
Update, 2 out of 2 times Sir Hawthorne has backstabbed me. What are the odds?

That's Pwalley. He's a member here.

I bought a Woo from him a couple weeks ago, and it came as advertised.

I have no idea why he's not doing the Buy It Now option...
