gullible people on ebay! read this!

I was being rather sad and looking on ebay to see if anyone was selling mcdonalds monopoly tokens that would complete my set (why? I dont know!):oops:

I typed in 'monoply bond street' - low and behold 2 items came up! theres me thinking 'woo hoo £100,000 - jackpot!'

It turns out they are actually selling literally a bond street card from a monopoly set! not only is that not bad enough but one of them has 2 days to go and has reached £102! OMG!

So READ LISTINGS CAREFULLY would appear to be the moral of the story! Plus they have listed it correctly and dont accept refunds.... poor buyer!

I remember when either the PS2 or XBox360 first came out, scammers were selling the box on it own. Nothing inside and the description was very misleading. A lot of people lost a great deal of money.
You have to be so very careful when you are buying online.

My wife's brother bought a size 9 pair of Caterpillar boots after seeing a photograph for a bargain price, only to find when he received them that they were child size 9.

I always read auction listings at least 3 times, every single word..it's a pain but can save a lot of money, I once almost bought a fake iPod!!

I hate it when you think you're buying an item from a uk seller then the goods arrive two weeks later from hong kong.

Ditto- Had that happen with some face cream a few weeks ago- very frustrating. I also hate it when people use keyword spam in their listings- it means you have to filter through a load of absolute crap that you really don't need just to get to the thing you are looking for.

Incidently has anyone used [URL="fatfingers.co.uk"]fatfingers.co.uk[/URL]
I've found a couple of things through that site- it finds sellers spelling mistakes and typos in specific listings and so you get to see listings that would otherwise be pretty impossible to search for-

ie if you type in Playstation to the ebay search engine you'll get all listings including that exact word, but if a seller has listed their item as, say "Platstatoin", it won't show up in your search. Fatfingers will search through every possible spelling and character placement for whatever you are looking for.

I'm not saying it's a really useful tool, for example if you type in "Replay" you'll end up with reply slips, relay switches.. but when you use the filter at the side you can find Replay clothes with no bids on as the listings are spelt wrong.

It can also be used on google,ebid and qxl...

Interesting site, I'll need to take a look - I've occasionally managed to snag a bargain because I've found a mis-spelt item.

With keyword spam I similarly find it very irritating as it means when you search for an item you have to filter through them to find the UK auctions, ignore the deliberately incorrect item accessories listed in the main section then try and find the genuine item which is not a copy and work around all the incorrectly listed items with keyword spam. Ebay don't allow it so if there's a particular seller using this which is mucking up a search (if you're regularly doing a similar search) report the auction.

Please refrain from this in this thread as it is serious people are waiting for their money to be refunded.

Worst story i heard about ebay was when the 360 first came out. A mother was trying to buy it for her son and bid so much but it was actually just the picture of the 360. Some people take it too far

This guy sold an old bottle of beer (ebay item 270132264843).

But this guy did some research and made sure he spelled the title correctly (ebay item 260145824374).

shame the buyer never paid

if u watch the real hussel, you will know this...

if you buy something like that card, and say i thought it was the mcdonalds thing not the card this am not paying, you actully will have to "or get a strike ovusualy" as its your fault, people can misslead you as much as they want its up2 you to read it and know what you are buying, alot of people try seeling furntiure like a sofa for half price, and then when they recieve it, its dolls furniture, or seel pictures of a car rather a car

It did make a nice pint of shandy though.
banned#25
happens every year, sometimes its people auction wrecking, and another time i saw someone say on the forums they sent monopoly money as payment lol

EDIT: auction wrecking also means the seller gets high ebay fees to pay when the buyer doesnt pay
