To whom it may concern,
Have just recently been advised of your sale and subsequent discussions regarding a 1920's Swift bicycle which ultimately turned out to be a '30s-era Hercules.
As a long-time dealer in this hobby, I have seen more then a number of unscrupulous sellers, and I must protest your conduct as a seller. Such misrepresentation through text and photos is inexcusable and your suggestions to the unlucky purchaser furthermore wholly insulting and demeaning. To even suggest that you are justified in misleading potential buyers because of your supposed purchase price (and ignore further communication with them) shows only your true, lack of honesty or caring for others.
You have slapped the community of bicycle collectors straight in the face, and we do not take kindly to that. Our community sticks together against thieves, con-artists and scams, and we will join together to protect others from you if you do not mend your ways.
