Not trying to be rude.
I've had experiences in the past where people made new forum accounts just for things like an auction. If they didn't get enough hype for it or enough silver, the auctioneer would magically vanish never to be heard of again. There's been many times something has happened and a good clue was that the one in question was a brand new account, no pic, no previous posts.
Maybe I'm jaded from previous dealings with people. I wont question the post anymore since multiple alliance members spoke up and the OP sent me a PM.
Again wasn't trying to be rude but always a skeptic.
Good luck with the auction and congrats on finding it.
