Nice job Scot. This is my last word on Casino ebay.
On books that I purchase,I find the whole thing to be a complete crap shoot,knowledge is of little value,one needs luck. I have lost as much as $100 on a single transaction. On the other hand,I have picked up unbelievable bargains. So far it has all equaled out for me. 
The thing that really gets to me is,when I am on the losing side of a transaction,I do not have any way of knowing for sure if it is a crook or a good person lacking knowledge of the subject.
