OMG :w00t:

I suppose the buyer could argue the point that the item is listed in "Video game consoles"

I would email the buyer to warn them but email dont let u do they?

Someone should tell the buyer not to go through with it....I'd be gutted if I was the winner and paid only to find out I'd made a horrible mistake.

Box and Boxed Just 2 extra letters make all the difference!

Anyway I'd never buy from someone who hasn't bothered to write even a half decent listing!

Yeh you can message members and hide your email address,but they will know your eBay I.D.

This is nothing new.

For all the money eBay are taking you think they be cracking down,eBay rely on people to report such listings.

Just wondering what are the other 11 bidders' excuses? Lol

At least the nasty seller can't leave her a neg, however the neutral will affect her 100% feedback.

I'd never let anyone else use my ebay account without me being present!

Good work matt and dmissy! :thumbsup:

The buyer could have easily damaged the box and then told the seller it arrived damaged and they wanted a refund, would only lose about £4 in postage

The ultimate cheek!

Not only is it just a box but the spec is wrong! Hahaha!

Quite cleverly 'revised' though :lol:

first one had 100% feedback tho. What a muppet

I got this reply from the seller:
[FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]"the winning bidder has pulled out they say they wont pay i think may be another ebay member told them what they had bid on lol most people asked and i was honest with them all the bidders was people who asumed there was a ps3 in the box i only put it on for a joke cant belive how stupid some people are.i wouldnt have took there money anyway i wouldnt be able to sleep at night look out for other people trying the same most people who asked said they was going to do it lol 1 man said i was a genius[/SIZE][/FONT]."
Fair play to the bloke.

Emailed this buyer to ask and he said:

He has updated the listing...underneath all the cable s he says come with the box...it says.....a PS console comes with these......doesnt mean he is selling one though...A ps does come with them but are you sending it.....seems strange as he is being so vague...instead of just saying PS3 console for sale...:x



Sounds like he is attempting a con to me.

That's exactly what I thought when I read the updates. There's not a straight answer anywhere on there. I'll be watching this with interest and if he does try to pull a con I hope the buyer goes for personal collection with a couple of mates :evil:

If I got a cardboard box and mark it with a giant X, can I get away by telling people I'm selling a X-box?

u can indeed, im interested, how much?

220243829813 Now ended, sold to highest bidder for £185 (a noob). As they come from Stirling I don't think there's much chance of a personal collection......

The seller ended it to the highest bidder, now I'm confused... if they weren't selling just a box, they'd have let it carry on...

BUT DO YOU RELISE THE SELLER HAS RELISTED IT!!!!!!! iTEM NO 250257486086 sO YOU NOT ONLY HAVE IDIOTS BUYING BUT ALSO SELLING!!!!

I don't really see how that sellers an idiot. The last buyer obviously pulled out so he's trying to sell his box for a second time :giggle:

ebay listing number 180249818212 clearly states 8 digital photos of a ps3 and some people still bidding!!!
