EBAY Idiots!

Post by Vanny » Mon Feb 20, 2006 5:43 pm

i know there are some serious idiots on ebay, but this one is special;

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Citroen-BX-1-9-TD ... dZViewItem

you'll notice that its NOT for a BX looks something montego ish! No problem with people not listing things correctly, BUT this is the second time he's listed it along with a whole batch of parts that arent from a BX.

Someone please point out to him what a fool he is!

I think a volvo 440, and have emailed him as such.

And pointed out that there's no such BX model as a 1.9 TDX
this might be a signature

I have to laugh at the irony of part of his user name being "gooddeals" when you look at the postage he wants for each item :lol:

I recently discovered why people charge exhorbitant postage costs and it`s two fold: firsly if the item starts at a low price and only attracts one bid then they haven`t lost out, secondly eBay charge their final valuation fees based on the end price of the item(s) and NOT the postage.

I saw this too and took some pleasure in telling the idiot. I crossed swords with him before. He sold me a rad for a Pug and I was driving past his place to collect. He demanded an extra £15 for me picking it up!

I told him to poke it and bought it for more money elsewhere. I guess it is OK to try to rip off eBay, but picking on the punters is a bit mean.
