John H. Talman Auction Reviews (4)

February, 2012 I delivered my entire stamp collection to *** for sale and reimbursement, less commission. It is now approx. eight years on and this matter is still outstanding. I've received a number of payments over the years but only after 'badgering' him and following up on a regular basis.There have been ongoing conversations and promises however *** appears either unwilling or unable to see this transaction through to an acceptable conclusion. Cheques have been returned by his bank as "NSF" and there have a plethora of other excuses over the years I have dealt with him. It would seem that the Business Model employed by *** is to sell the customer's property and then apply the proceeds to whatever *** is the most pressing at that time, rather than crediting the customer for the proceeds of the sale.
Despite repeated calls to ***, the last payment received was January, 2018 and my voicemail messages are no longer being returned. While a lump sum settlement would have been nice, I was Ok with receiving regular payments but now there is nothing. This has been a very disappointing experience, to say the least.

Desired Outcome

I am looking for the balance of the amount of the sale still owing.

Mr *** auctioned my stamps May 20th 2018 and *** the proceeds. I attended the unreserved auction and took notes. I received no communication of confirmation from him.

Desired Outcome

I want the *** $620.50 and the $11 I was forced to *** on on a registered letter.

I will not spend a great deal of time disputing the claims of this customer (case XXXXXXX). However, he was told that he would get a full accounting when we sent payment to him. *** Most of his lots had a bid on them prior to the auction but if I did say "What's your pleasure?" it was not meant to be directed to any one bidder on the floor but to all bidders present. As I recall, more than 25% of the value sold by the customer was bought by bidders not present at the sale. Four different bidders bought his ten lots.In any case, on November 13, 2018 we have sent full payment of $620.50 to the customer by registered mail. I trust this will close the matter.

Customer Response • Nov 20, 2018

(The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.)I have today received a money order for $620.5 so the complaint can be closed.I would not have received it without publicizing a website, contacting the ***, and enlisting assistance from the thank the for their service.

This dealer has auctioned my collection over 2 years ago and I have received a cheque for $100. The value he printed in the catalogue for my collection was in excess of $17000. I am in the process of filing a claim against him in the Ontario small claims court and would welcome the opinion of others who have similar problems.

John Talman failed to complete my Canadian used stamp order in a timely manner.I had to place numerous telephone calls to complete my order;it does not take over one year to full fill an order. Lost my patience with this firm.
