Sad story

Someone emailed me this story.

 I'm not trying to be "motzei shem ra" however I thought its important that we see what happened to this guy. A lot of dealers sell old second hand sforim as "Holocaust Torahs". I don't know how many of them are legit. Please be careful.
A sefer Torah where the klaf is very puffy and does not roll smoothly is there a way to fix it? I feel that it is more prone for letters to crack since it cannot roll smoothly around the eitz hachayim.
