Re: E Bay Scammers

I've been buying and selling on ebay for well over a decade - laptops mobiles - no problem.

On scammers, well you have to ask yourself who's scamming who? The only people who fall for this are greedy and basically think they are scamming the seller at that price.

To see really good ones just do a simple search at the weekend (favourite lax time) for something expensive like the latest iphone or Samsung Galaxy. Then ask yourself if you pressed the £50 buy it now button would you really expect to see it? Another favourite is the good spec Chinese android phone. Practically every weekend dozens expect to get one at under a tenner with free delivery. Are they that deluded, they've convinced themselves that because it's a Chinese brand that explains the low price?

I don't know which is the most shocking. The scammers or the crazies that genuinely seem to expect something for next to nothing.

Re: E Bay Scammers

You can get some bargains on the auction side of ebay.  "Buy it now" rather defeats the original purpose.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

I don't use ebay but when I last looked (many years ago) there were London Underground maps for sale.  No, not the large posters but the ones you can pick up free at any station or tourist information centre.  The asking price was 99p.

Re: E Bay Scammers

Would any stations/tourist information centres outwith the London area also stock these for free?

I would say it could be quite handy for someone planning a trip to London.

Re: E Bay Scammers

I'm pretty sure London Underground would happily send one if you were to call them using your free minutes.  Overseas travel agents might also have some available.  Some people collect them since the covers/front pages are sometimes designed by famous designers.
