Moron Scammer of the Day - Conan #3, CGC 9.5

The moron scammers on eBay just get dumber and dumber.

This seller claims,

IM NOT A COMIC EXPERT BUT WHEN I MOVED INTO MY NEW HOUSE THERE WHERE TWO CHESTS FILLED OF COMICS. I HAD NO IDEA HOW MUCH THEY CAN COST SO I TOOK A FEW TO MY LOCAL COMIC CARD STORE AND ASKED HOW MUCH THEY WOULD BE WORTH. THE GUY SAID THAT THIS CONAN CAN COST ARROUND $550.00 IF IT WAS CERTIFIED. BUT IN BROOKLYN COMICS ARE NOT A BIG THING AND I CANT FIND A PLACE WHERE TO GET THEM CERTFIED. I TOOK THEM TO 2 PLACES AND BOTH PLACES SAID THAT THIS BOOK WAS ARROUND A 9.5 OR A 9.6.SO SINCE I DIDNT GET THESE CERTFIED...

In Brooklyn, "comics are not a big thing?" What an idiot.

Further, the scan is clearly stolen as it's a scan of a CGC slabbed book -- the same book he claims is not certified.

What happened to the good old days when scammers at least had to call your house or ring the bell to try to con you? With the advent of eBay, every brain dead, can't-spell-loser skell can set up shop.
