Hey folks,

It's almost been a year and he hasn't made it right yet, so here we go...

I bought a print from Photogus back in early Feb 2019. It was a Horkey letterpress and included a CoA (for those of you who don't know, these CoAs were essentially an additional piece of art). His listing said it was included with the print.

After a month of waiting, I reached out and asked when he was planning on shipping the prints. He then replied "going out this weekend, I promise! sorry for the delays" after about a week

Wait another few weeks and then the print arrives safely but no CoA... He admits to forgetting it and says he'll ship it out shortly.

After emailing back and forth since (giving him a 1-2 months between emails) and getting every excuse in the book (the main one being that he needed proper packing material to send it out), he finally said it's packed and ready to go - that was Nov 17.

Couple of months later, radio silence and still no CoA.

So yeah, if you're going to deal with this guy, don't let the fact that he's an EB old-timer reassure you. I should've opened the claim when I had the chance, but I gave him the benefit of the doubt being how he has been a member since 2008 - lesson learnt on my end.



** he's responded today - will update accordingly... **

Luls. Based on his batchit crazy listings and excuses for selling, I'm shocked at dis thread.
