[quote:jlimon:MV85Njg4MzVfMTU2MzUxNDhfRjNDNTIwNDg=] Are you people freaking high? Do you not understand what it means to be a reseller and the idea of a free and open market? Also, do you not understand what it means to develop connections and personal business relationships that allow you to sell things at the prices Mike and his associates are able to sell them for. You people act as if they hadn't shown up all these folks would be living on easy street had they not been "ripped off". Let's be freaking honest here, on average most people are just surprised that people would WANT to buy their junk, secondly the profit margin is on average, only about 60 to 80%, so it's not like they're offering $5 and getting $5,000. More to the point do you have such a bad memory that you can't remember this season's episode where they repeatedly told a woman the numbers she was giving them were too LOW? They offer a fair price for what is essentially junk. They take the time and money to clean them, repair them and THEN sell them. Also, a HUGE part of their business is CONNECTIONS. Do these people have those connections? NO! They don't. They spend their money to maintain a business with several employees to utilize their connections to make a living on a niche sector of the economy. If you believe that what they're doing is dishonest or even remotely criminal I think you should get your head examined ASAP. :dick: [/quote]
I can NOT believe that the HISTORY channel would show such a disgrace to our older generation. TO think for one minute this would somehow be cleared to air is appalling. To brag or somehow boast about an unsolicited visit to Leland's farm and the price paid versus the actual value should be illegal. If this would have been my granddad I would have felt robbed of my family heirloom and treasures. The History Channel should immediately cancel this show!!!!!!!!!!!!! We were so looking forward to a new show that was really about hidden treasures in American not thievery we couldn't even finish the show.
These guys are scum bags !!!!! Nice job History Channel way to promote thieves . I would love to meet these guys face to face , and work a deal out with them. If you know what I mean ! And my parents always told me crime doesn't pay, unless you make a show for the History Channel .Way to teach kids its ok to steal from the older generation. History Channel you should make things right pay these people fair price for their stuff, and fire these dirt bags
