    the address turned out to be an office somewhere in Jersey unconnected, etc... Seems that pricy hi-fi gets a lot of this.


    On Nissan sites they've started posting pics of their cars with a can of Beans in all pics, to prevent scammers copying the pics!

    So? What could we use? Discuss.

    Yeah same with a number of the Honda forums I'm on... Either a tin of beans or your username and date/time on a card in front of the items you're selling!

    I usually ask for a picture with this OR if the item is small enough; for a picture of it in front of the computer screen showing the relevant topic etc...

    If it's serious I would expect the component to be pictured held by their naked wife/girlfriend.

    therefore if it is a scam at least you know she'll probably make sure they can't infect the gene pool further.

    The seller has been trying to buy legitimate E-Bay accounts with high feedback. Disgraceful.

    I originally posted this to draw attention to the dodgy sellers, but it seems to be throwing up all kinds of underhand practices...

    Absolutely disgraceful. I have been lucky, I bought lots of second hand items on ebay, some of them high value and up to now I didnt have any problems whatsoever. I guess most people are genuine but there are some that will do anything to get your hard earned cash.

    We'll see if Cartman and myself get our money back. I'm hoping between paypal and the credit card company I'll get some kind of result. If need be I'll involve the police.

    ...ah but have you been tempted to get the other two, looking in the mirror rubbing the chin, leaving 4 plus days stubble, or gazing into Millets front window for a furtive glance of open toed loveliness are the first signs.
