If cunts are stupid enough to bid on that then they deserve all they get, you don't have to be an expert to know that it is obviously fake

But for the uninitiated do you not think that eBay should remove this sale, assuming it has been reported to them?
Or do we think eBay is "buyers beware "?
I think eBay should have more ownership of this type of issue.
Discuss!

I didn't report it to eBay but I messaged the seller and its no longer available- so that's a result in my eyes. Didn't get a msg back from them thanking me for saving them from committing fraud (bit of a stretch maybe??) maybe they're a bit pissed at me? :lol:
i think eBay should do something if an item is flagged up as fake, hard to police in practice though as there will always be people reporting legit items out of malice- maybe they should step in if they get X amount of reports??

Well done, great effort.
Totally agree with the rest of your post.
I really do believe that eBay should do more, but suspect that this goes against them make vast sums of money out of sellers. :roll:

What a load of junk.

Unfortunately I think you are right, and that's where the trouble lies, eBay want him to sell that and then they will get paid their percentage.
Make my blood boil... :wink:

The line of glue around the seal is pretty blatant as well, unfortunately I saw this after buying a LXW so I fully expect to be sending that back, still you never know :roll:

Lol you can even see pixelation in the border around the corners of the bubble where it looks like it's been very badly 'photoshopped' and probably done in MS Paint, and the air bubbles in the glue that hadn't even dried yet when they took the pics :lol: :lol:
