No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

One of the giveaways I've always found is to look at feedback dates.  This ones last feedback is in June last year, so I wouldn't go near it.  The 'hackers' target accounts which aren't in use, just like this one......

If anyone can work out what else they've 'sold' recently that would be great, but I can't see the completed listings option?

I can no longer view the auction.  Maybe eBay has recognized the fraud and removed the listing.

If you clicked the link in the first post, it's from a year ago.

Works now.  When I clicked on your link for Catherine2383's past auctions, it shows two item numbers.  But when I click on 141356318454, I get a message that the required resources are not available.  But Alpha's original link works.  Thanks.

If you Google the item number 141356318454 which is Alpha's current purchase, the Google reference turns up a discussion (in French) in which a buyer is complaining about non-delivery.  The actual discussion on eBay boards has been edited to remove reference to the item number and the seller, but may be relevant.

So the seller is a serial offender...and maybe never had the object to start with. If so, where did the images used in the adverts come from? An earlier eBay auction that none of us spotted?
