So what happens if JNewton came up with the cunning idea of convincing you guys that its a scam so that you'd bid for it? Is the 12K bid legally binding?

The whole advert just smells fishy anyway - the Yank photos and wording give it away!!!

He'd have to find me 1st. Neither of my accounts that I've bid with are connected to me.

Who wants a go at the bow? It'll have to be someone other than me,Codders or Des or the scammer might suss.

Actually, I can send e-bay a message that the ad is a fake and a copy of one I purchased. But this is fun, interesting to see haw far it will go. Would be a little different if someone copied a listing for a computer that was the same model.

Sad truth is that ebay provides a very healthy environment for scammers to profit at others' expense - and it chooses to do nothing about it. I've wound up a couple of scamming scum but you're not even scratching the surface. Fact is punters are losing millions every week on ebay and no-one gives a sh*t!

Now Now who says he's Yank? The ADVERT is Yank but that is all - he's prob one of our Nigerian "friends" - or some Eastern European that Tony blair has let in!!!

Mate'ws wife works in the DVLA - they are currently getting about 5000 licence applications every WEEK from these Eastern Europeans - how many aren't bothering???

I think Ebay has removed the item, I had it on my watch list and now its gone, and I also can not find it by searching.
