Buyer Beware!

Another retailer discovered this guy's eBay scam and alerted eBay. The seller has since had his account shut down there.

Basically, it looks like he bought those "40-Years Of..." DVD's that are available for a variety of Marvel characters. Then he was printing them out "on super-white paper" he even admits, and was selling them as "reprints" of the issues. He even got one guy to bite - paying $28 + shipping. It's an interesting way to raise money to pay for the DVD, but it also violates copyrights. And WHO would actually buy this? Did the guy not realize it was just something the seller was printing out at home on his computer and putting into pocket pages and a binder??

WOW! This gets a big Buyer Beware in my book!

Kinda silly either way...
What really bugs me is eBay sellers offering digital versions of comics that have never been legitimately released in that format.

I think of it as ripping off the publisher and the customer simultaneously.
