    Well I just won this on Ebay. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif


    Not sure if its a little fishy but it was so cheap and I had not time to check the seller out so I bid on it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/noidea.gif

    Will do some more investigating tonight after I get back from the dentist. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Definately fishy doc, EBAY has loads of cheap items like branded dvd/lcd head units from sellers that a based in China & Hong Kong. Another sign is that they only accept bank transfers & if you look at their feedback comments, all were made on the same day & within 10-15mins of each other. I suspect you may be waiting a long time for it to arrive, hope i'm wrong though mate.....

    I agree with Mike. If you look at the profiles of the people who have left feedback for him they themselves have similar feedback all left on the same dates, for non existent items. (check the descriptions) Also, no paypal, he says you have to pay into his bank account. If i were you doc I wouldn't pay and save yourself £60.

    That has to be a major scam....All the feedbacks are linked to one another. I would avoid likle the plague. Just to diversify slightly though.....on Ebay a couple of days ago there was someone selling an Xbox 360 and the bidding was at £2500 (27 bidders). The ad had all the speel about the Xbox, but the last paragraph read that the winning bidder would not get an Xbox, they would get an Egg box with 360 wrote on it in marker pen LOL

    There was some DVD Hu's going really cheap lately, and as soon as it got payed, the item and seller dissapeared. I was reading on Talkaudio about it.

    David, stay away from it mate, i cannot see you getting bad feedback from this,lol Maybe a few ?????'s

    I really wouldn't send any money either.....
    Feedback is far too fishy, all those ?????????.
    Save yourself a load of worry and hassle and just forget it, thats my advice....
    Remember that if it appears too good to be true then it probably is... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif.
