$3M record collection buyer a fraud – eBay bumming again

That record collection – easily the best record collection in one single place – was being sold by Paul Mahwinney out of Record Rama in Pittsburgh, PA (is there ay other?), which sold for $3M to an a buyer in Ireland on eBay last week?


I can’t imagine that eBay, who has suffered so much bad press lately, can be terribly happy about this.

The “buyer” said that he was the victim of identity theft and that he got the invoice and couldn’t believe it. I reckon that’s possible, and a terrible email to get from PayPal, which is already such an unpleasant system.

Furthermore, it’s reported that a rare Stones album, that Mahwinney has valued at $10,000, can be bought elsewhere on eBay for $599. Ouch.
