Quite a while ago, I read in your paper about unscrupulous auctioneers selling, undisclosed, unbuildable lots in Shelter Cove to unsuspecting buyers, essentially ripping them off (“Buyer Beware!” April 22, 2004). I believe the article’s message was shame on the auctioneers and shame on the Humboldt County Tax Assessor.
Now you’re helping steal from hard-working people by running a half-page ad from one of those very same auctioneers. Anything for money, eh? Hypocrites!
