Something(s) very wrong with this listing on BoB

Is that part of a telephone number under the description?

Just some of the R59,000 things...

 

1) Incomplete phone number provided (thank you Miss Jewels) - which (if complete) would allow buyers to bypass BoB

2) No image provided of an expensive listing claiming PROOF coins (by category listing)

3) Listed in proof but only description states "In a red case not graded UNC"... go figure

4) Title "Full set of crowns 1947-1964" omits the key word PROOF

5) The inadequate description is even more important without an image

6) The seller joined BoB less than a week ago and has no ratings BUT

7) As a new BoB member he obviously understands the auction system on BoB very, very well......

so why is his listing so vague?

 

Something does not add up.

 

PS The seller also has another coin a ZAR gold 1894 AU55 half pond listed at R40,000 under similar circumstances...

 

Graded Coins - 1894 South Africa half pond au 55 for sale in Parys (ID:45170391)

 

Kind regards

I really think the seller only need some education on how to do listing and to upload the pictures! Obvious he don't know what to write in the description area! It can be very difficult for a new user. Still remember the first time I did a listing! Phew!! I wasn'n even computor literate! Boonop nog Afrikaans ook! He/she don't know the rules yet....I think!

I see there is a new "tutorial" for new sellers. When you are unsure about the shipping charges (as these must be stated) there is a link to a you tube video of how to load shipping costs. I'm sure there is more "help" there too. Also, when I first started many years ago, I made the BoB offices made with phone calls to please help me set up my listings correctly. I think this is the route newbies should go in order to keep their side clean. On the other hand, if you read all T & C's, you cannot go wrong. One of the big no-no's are the listing of contact details.
