Found 21st Feb 2011
This seller is selling a lot of stuff for very very cheap. states it's all new and most of it is a bargain.

two things. If its too good to be true it probably is.
the 15day wait to receive your item :S.

Now im really tempted by that iPad as its almost 50% off what apple sell it for and you get enough protection from paypal so should i take the risk? bargain if all turns out to be good.

mod please can you change this to the misc section

prob stolen

hmm, travels with work a lot or steals to order, that is why it takes so long.

Wouldnt touch these OP as others said, probably stolen, and the seller has pretty low feedback, and I dont ever trust someone who has all the past listings set to private so you cant see what most of the items theyve sold are

I have to say that hes not selling them that cheap. The price is very good. Worth a punt with paypal protection?????

Its all pretty cheap imo, on items that are likely to be the more popular, like the Ipad's and Kinect for 70quid, Im pretty confident the cheapest you can get it is 100quid online, just think its very suspicious...

LOL it's a scam..

Too good to be true = scam, will you people ever learn???

One of the items he sold was a cash register, prob just took it from a shop somewhere. Looks dodgy to me

PS: have reported this post to HUKD mods.

Before people here get sucked in.

All his recent sales are private, some to the same buyers. You also have to ask yourself why would a non-business seller suddenly have all this new (and desireable) kit ? You could open yourself up to a world of pain buying from him.

It's not stolen, he does not have the stock and never will have, hence the 15 day wait.

paypal block you from withdrawing anything after receiving a big sum payment unless you have a solid 3 month reputation

eh, what are the mods gonna do?

You buy it, you wait 15 days, then he'll string you a long for a bit and before you know it you'll be outside Paypal's window to claim back your money!

Anyone contemplating buying this and receiving it is deluded. Just look at the thread on here when the OP found a PC way below RRP on eBay and it was scam after all. And that seller had hundreds/thousands of feedback, was a powerseller, etc...

Won't stop him buying anything with the funds though.. or transferring it all to his mate who'll then withdraw it to his bank account..

The OP first of all posted it in the deal section... makes it sound like they are taking the gamble, perhaps others should too.....?

A responsible mod should look at the thread, lock and edit with 'obvious scam' just incase.

Too much to ask I guess....

have a laugh?

I would check paypal and ebay terms and go for it, ebays the place to sell cheap nowadays people just want to get rid of thier clatter.
I would question the description if it listed as new and the descrpition says otherwise then it could just listed in the wrong category by the seller.
Have Ignored User Mallinershit for about a year and it was expected rubish talk when i chose to click 'Show' to see what the user was talking about.

No paypal have changed it so the funds are completely on hold. You cannot transfer the funds, or spend them, you can't even buy your postage with them or ebay fees. They are completely frozen until either 20 or 21 days have passed, or the buyer has left positive feedback or they have tracking proof of delivery.
