Ft Pierce news

Sometimes I'm a little slow to find things, so here we go five days late, I guess.

Talk about the theatre of the absurd. Be sure to read the comments after the story, several countries heard from.......

In response to the comment by anonymous.

The very fact that you don't know "what makes it a fake" by visual inspection proves that there is a need for experts who have invested time, money, and energy to gain that knowledge.

And with a so-called value of $ 10,000.00 involved (in this specific instance), I think it would be fair to say that this specialized knowledge has some value. And that, my dear anonymous friend, is why such things as appraisals and consultations often have fees attached.

My point in posting that fake Backus was not meant to denigrate all you gentle readers for not being expert in the Backus market.

It was meant to absolutely slam any Bobo the fool who would send serious money overseas in an eBay transaction to a complete stranger who may or may not be reputable. EBay doesn't care if their sellers are reputable or not, they just want the fees they get from them for listings.

This example was an EXTREMELY easy scam to spot, for me, (applause, please,) due to my extensive experience in buying, selling, and studying A E Backus' work in the last decade and a half. (Thank you, thank you very much).

This year is fast coming to a close, time really flew. Did you notice how quickly those monthly bills followed each other this past year ?

The sun is about to set, so happy Hanukkah to the Yiddish, and for the Goyim, merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
