That's actually pretty dodgy by not having such, let's say, important info in the title... sigh.
But it's going to fetch him a nice price if someone's in a hurry and not careful.
Thanks for the heads up! I admit I first jumped because there's some nice kits there - but I knew something was up
Blimey hes still got at least £76 for some empty boxes
It was only a few quid when I saw the link a couple of hours ago so there's a lot of people who's fallen to the con...
It pays to read the full description, I think there may be some retracted bids there
OMG! Someone is going to be really upset. Thing is he has actually done nothing wrong, he's described it as a "box job lot" and in the very little write up in the description explained that they're empty.
Not for the faint hearted eh?
Somebodys going to be mighty disappointed! A lesson that cant be stressed enough - always read the description before bidding , and if something looks too good to be true then it invariably is!
Holy crap but it's up to £102 right now!?!?
I really wish all bidders suddenly realise their mistake a couple of minutes before the auction ends and all withdraw their bids, but late enough for the seller to have mentally spent the money already!
It doesn't matter if he's technically haven't done anything wrong - it's still a dodgy move because it's intentional!
Agree with Tony though that it's learning money, but still...
Joking aside, and this is a real example that challenges the notion that "people aren't stupid", this is not on. There must be so many folks that have spotted that this is a rip-off, but there is nowhere to point this out. So cynical and typical of the whole ebay culture of not giving a toss. You should see some of the scams for campervans, utterly shocking!
Just clicked on it and its gone either its ended or taken down.
But still people should read the small print.
EVEN I am not that stupid
The links not available now? But guessing from reading the comments someone has just paid a lot of money for some empty boxes,?? That's why I don't use eBay
P'raps this reading isn't all it's cracked up to be after all! Here's the blurb from the back of my Game of Thrones Season 7 Box Set:
"The most watched series in HBO history and a worldwide phenomenon, Game of Thrones remains a huge runaway hit. Dani Lisi led her militiamen and the army of the elders finally returned to the beginning of all the place - Long Shidao, where she merged with her allies, in the proposal of Tilly, she Pigeon Biography to the far north of Joan, trying to get his surrender. The side of the car, Joseph Xi's arbitrary and cruelty of the country into the embattled situation, only James still stubbornly waiting for her behind her."
D'you think I should put a spoiler alert at the start of this post?
Ive never watched Game of Thrones dave but even so I dont think there are any cars or pigeons in it ! This sounds like the instruction sheet from Colins 1/76 Stuart tank from the under a fiver build!
But then, reading is definitely a good idea!
I was looking for a 1/35 Centurion today. I saw one at £25 but thought I could do better - so when I saw a British tank with a £20 price tag, I bought it and the dealer kindly knocked £2 off the price.
So now I have two, count them, two Tamiya 1/35 Chieftains!
Memo to self: Must do better!
I think it was probably originally written in Polish and translated into English by a Japanese guy who can't read either Polish or English!
The seller either sore this and took it down or they have a heart and have taken it down and relisted it with an updated title mabye we underestimate some people
Looks to be a similar listing against this item code
Although in this one the seller has made a point to highlight there are no kits included in the sale.
That's the same listing just been edited properly this time
