Default A Seller on Ebay, or Fraudbay as some call it, is at it again

Fellow 8-Track Collectors and Enthusiasts

There is a seller on Ebay/Fraudbay selling a common 8-Track tape, falsely claiming it's rare, for almost $100.00 ($99.99). It is The Rolling Stones #1 US selling and platinum winning album Some Girls. Here's the link to the "Buy It Now" ad for this:


http://www.ebay.com/itm/152516922246

Who does this seller thinks they're kidding? This isn't rare, but very common. This seller must think that everybody is ignorant. He is also selling a pirated tape of The Doors Greatest Hits called Up To Date, which is also the name of The Partridge Family's second album. Here's the link:

As I said, who does this seller thinks he's kidding or fooling. I just thought I'd share. What do y'all think?

No Andy, this isn't Charlie "Noodles" Nudo. Not this time. This is a seller who calls himself meeulk and he is located in Apex North Carolina. He also claims "Awesome Collector Audio Piece". The thing is that Some Girls, like most Rolling Stones 8-Track's of the mid to late 1970's are common as The Rolling Stones' studio albums up to 1981's Tattoo You, were million sellers and #1 in the USA, which means that they are common. I have Tattoo You on 8-Track in my own collection. This North Carolina seller is just someone who loves to set high prices on common tapes. I guess he took a page of the "Noodles" handbook on how to sell.

Speaking of Noodles, he is back to his old tricks again. He is again listing stuff that you can buy at a junkyard, antique store, junk shop, thrift store or flea market insanely high prices and adding insult to injury with "Free Shipping", when in reality, you're paying for the shipping in the price.. Here is a link to what he is selling in case if anyone here is curious:

Yup, now THIS is classic Cholly Noodlez....rusted garbage for high
prices. I also note he's not selling very much of it at all. I
wonder what he dodes for food anymore, since GE fired him years
ago.....

I don't think this is Noodles. Fishing lures, cheap Wally-Fart toys
and the usual crap you'd find around the average trailer in NC isn't
Noodles' usual fare, although the overpriced 8 tracks carts sort of
remind me of him. I don't think we'll ever see Noodles pop up on
sleazeBay again....he got his comeuppance.

Frank, there are people who sell on sites like Ebay that rely on the ignorance of others in order to make a buck. The thing is that there will be people who will fall for it and then, they will later see that they were suckered into it when they discover that these types of 8-Tracks are common. It's simply greed taken to the extreme, that's all. It does take all kinds to fill the world, even though there are some kinds that we can do without.

WOW! How original. I remember the Partridge Family album Up To Date. The thing is with bootleggers and pirates, they will simply recycle or reuse a name that is used from a legit release, such as the aforementioned Partridge Family album, to name something of theirs. Another case in point is the Led Zeppelin bootleg live album Hot August Night, which is a reusing of the title of a Neil Diamond live album also bearing that name. This simply shows that nothing is sacred. As I said, it takes all kinds to fill the world.

Just another day in the world of extreme greed.

I just re-checked Noodles Ebay things for sale page and he has removed two particular sales that he posted. They were both lots of 8-Track tapes that he was selling for $39.00 each. When I clicked on them, this is what it said on both:

"This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available."

Kind of makes you wonder, doesn't it. Maybe he changed his mind about selling them or maybe he didn't have any of these two lots for sale and removed them so nobody could call him out on it. I feel that the latter is true. Here are the links to the now no longer existing sales:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/29-pc-lot-8-... 142356875384

http://www.ebay.com/itm/LOT-51-8-TRA... 142356875384

I wouldn't have bought these anyway, though I was tempted to do so. I simply closed them off to kill the temptation. As I said before and I will say again, I will never do business with this guy again. No way. No How.
