    Attempted Scam by fellow Cincinnatian Phil Wong: BUSTED!!!

    Yesterday I posted some screenshots of a carded vinyl cape Jawa that a local fellow was trying to sell us thru Craigslist. Fellow scummer Duskamp confirmed my fears that it was a resealed VC Jawa and alerted me that it was actually just sold by a seller in the UK as evident by this recently complete auction:
    Carded 1977 Kenner Star Wars Genuine Vinyl Cape Jawa Original Card Bubble | eBay

    The 20-back made me think it was a recard to begin with, but I wanted to be 100% sure, as these don't come up very often- especially when it's local. Below are screenshots between my brother and Phil Wong. It makes me extremely infuriated to know that someone would openly try to defraud someone in this manner. I contacted the seller from the UK, whom I notified of the situation to inform him that Phil Wong was already trying to sell the figure locally for $2,000 as an authentic sealed Vinyl Cape Jawa. What the &%$# is wrong with people? This person has no scruples and the fact that he dare mimic Master Yoda at the end of the back-and-forth make me want to force-push him into the Sarlaac Pit. I hope he finds a new definition of pain and suffering.

    While we all are scummers, Phil Wong from Cincinnati is a SCUMBAG Avoid this scammer at all costs.

    What a scammer.

    The 20 back should have been the big red flag though. A VC Jawa has never been found on a 20 back other than Meccano.
