HAHAHA, yes there IS justice in the world AFTER ALL!!!

Thanks to EVERYONE who complained to eBay Safe Harbor, looks like the truth has indeed prevailed. Goodbye fake KOF2K auction, and . . . check the NGF website later, I'm sure we can say HELLO to "Big Jimmie" or whatever it is this time, the next sucker in line. Or maybe the last bid was one of their shill bids, in which case . . . tough luck NGF!!!

And as predicted, Dion and Chris put another dumbass blurb up on their site about the auction! Don't bother going there, here's all it says:

***Added 10/14/2000** WE HAVE 2 WINNERS!!!! Congratulations on the high bids of the 2 recent KoF 2000 AES carts that were listed on eBay. Big congrats go out to "Big Eddie" with 88 AES carts and "Big Tony" with 102 AES carts. We look forward to helping you with your quest to complete your Neo collection. eBay is a great way for us to meet new Neo collectors. Welcome to the NGF club! ***

What a JOKE! Their SECOND auction got CANCELLED by eBay, and they make it seem like it worked out FINE! What a pathetic pair of turkeys they are . . . http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif

Looks like there are a lot of "Big" guys out there. no Big Bruno's though http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif anyway I do think it is a little funny to post that they had winners. Exspecial if you look at the winners and they do have ebay accounts. One has like 8 in feedback and the other has 0 and none of them have bought neo carts on ebay in the past but they magically decided to buy a $1500 KOF 2000 cart. Well it is thier usal cover up work but all you have to do is look at the link to the auction to know it was cancled. Oh well.

Is is very good indeed to see another auction come crashing down; I wonder if NGF even had "big eddie's" and "big tony's" consent before they decided to pretend that those two guys had won the auctions and post that erroneous crap on their web site. I guess those two big tymers names are just aliases for Dion and Chris.

Question is, Will they do it again? The first time failed to send a point.

To be honest I would expect him to do it again and not think anything about it. The only thing his auction did was advertise his lame ass site and show off all his shit he's got to makehimself look liek the 'true' Neo source in the world.*mid-air wank*

Well, if a person knew nothing of NGF and was completely new to neo collecting, they might be foolish enought to bid on something like that, although I doubt they would ever bid above the reserve price those idiots at NGF had set anyway. Can such things as repeated fake auctions not only be reported to ebay, but to authorities as well?

Ebay only lets you get so many "strikes" before they ban you. I believe if you get three strikes, you are banned for a month. If you get four strikes, you are banned for good.

I'm not sure if ebay counts those NGF auctions as a "strike".

Print it out & frame it. It may be worth something to the TRUE neo freaks. LOL

Now, if only someone had the ability to actually hack the actual Neo Geo Freak webpage itself with copies of the actual safe harbors letters...

HMMMMMMM...

Not that I'm making any evil suggestions to anyone out there... http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

LOL Good one. Dion'll get what's comin to him eventually. I think he should be on newgrounds.com or evildave.com Wouldn't that be amusing.

disclaimer: said websites not for weak of heart.
