    ....thought you all might like to see the pretty message I received on my personal Ebay page today....to say I'm outraged and angry is like saying the Atom bomb was a mere firecracker.....Marsha is aware and I have also filed a grievance with Ebay.....
    Dear gntlgnt,

    This item is a fake. And the letter you typed up is not a COA, it would be an LOA if it were authentic. Legitimate COAs come from experts, not someone's personal assistant. As a lifelong Stephen King devotee, I am appalled you would charge such an exorbitant amount for a book worth $17.00 by forging the name of one of the greatest masters of the craft. And fabricating an amateurish facsimile of what you imagine the letterhead of a world renowned author would use, while simultaneously alleging that a personal assistant could authenticate autographs and editions, is the epitome of ludicrous. But the coup de grace is that you have the audacity to claim that all proceeds will be used in some sort of charitable donation. I cannot begin to tell you how many laws you are violating. I can tell you it has not gone unnoticed. And I'm not the only one who noticed it. I suggest you take a moment to ponder the wisdom of the aforementioned actions and then - make good choices.

    This is unbelievably insulting. Before someone spouts their crap, they really need to check their facts.

    This person is an idiot. Making accusations without verifying the facts shows he/she is not only stupid, but ignorant.

    By the way, I would NEVER buy any Stephen King book that came with a COA. A COA is worth less than the paper it's printed on. There is one company/organization that purports to authenticate signatures, publishes a COA and affixes a sticker to the title page with their number, thus defacing the book, lessening the value substantially.

    You might want to add a link to this thread. It might help those reluctant to bid without knowing if this is the real deal.

    I think it's more for those who might agree since there are others who have taken "notice." This way, they can come straight here and get it from the official site. Anyone in doubt, who might have deep pockets and want to own a rare book, can check out the conversations here.

    Excellent GNTLGNT . Word of caution, we may have an influx of Newbies. So remember DFTT ( don't feed the trolls). The posts are here to read- the proof is in the pudding.
