    I've never thought much of Boffer anyhow.
    I've had a few good deals from Grabbitnow though.

    IRL, it's a scam in which you host a fast-paced auction in which you bring your audience to a frenzy by rapidly offering a sucession of high-quality goods at low prices, but only "sell" the good things to your fellow fraudsters (or in Boffers case, list the good things only for a few minutes during whihc time they can't even be bought), then sell sub-standard tat at highly inflated prices. Bofffer sell a lot of half-decent stuff at reasonable prices too, but they do seem to have some dubious methods. And anyone that wasn't being rushed would've seen that £300 for this old a PC is a terrible deal.
