Default I think i just set a record (Mastro shilling & PSA)

I made a thread on the psa forum about the names being released in the mastro shilling ring, and that it was being discussed on another forum (net54). In a matter of minutes the thread was removed and I was banned. Why would they do this? Could it be that 4 of their experts were listed? The 4 psa experts were Rich Consola, Kevin Keating, John Reznikoff and Zach Rullo. One last thing, God bless

Mastro is old news, but it would be very interesting if names of top PSA experts were included.

We have millionaires, experts, big time sellers, ect, all having issues with schilling. What else is new. This is a shrewd hobby which shouldn't be but it is, all we can do is educate ourselves and work around the shrewdness!

This isn't the only board where people say that sarcastically.
What was his PSA post count?

And OP, of course the ban was because you mentioned expert shillers.

Not surprising.

PSA censors anything which might affect their brand.

I got banned from PSA boards about ten years ago for asking them to post info on their webpage about the qualification and training of their graders.

Yes, it's obvious why I was banned. However I didn't mention a single name, not even net54. All that was mentioned was that if you looked at the list you willl see some notable expert names.

I saw this on facebook today, I'm not sure of how long it has been public but if you have time to read through the case, it is very interesting and telling..

Yikes. Anyone think PSA folks go a step further and go to other boards to promote their brand?

Here's a whole bunch of bad, Steve Grad on the left(before his 'cool guy' makeover for Pawn Stars), and Reznikoff and Mastro from 'Hauls of Shame' citing dozens of terrible fakes they gave to OK to.

Could this be D2R's backup account?

On a side note, what's up with guys showing up on here who have had accounts for like 5 years and less than 50 posts?

Way too many. New users and users that have accounts for multiple years are coming out of the woodwork like infestation, and we're losing our established good members...

Both PSA and SGC are involved in the shillings. I wonder if any of these 2 companies will now eventually go out of business because of the bad publicity(think GAI).

Also, I wonder if this sting had anything to do with SGC moving the business to Florida.?
