A friend of mine bid £90+ pounds for what she thought was an XBOX console for her childrens Christmas present.

The Blurb said XBOX XBOX

What it should have said was EXBOX XBOX.

That was what she got, an empty box,she doesn't know what to get the kids now

Some right B :tsktsk: s on there,Knowing it's Christmas and parents trying to save a few bob :yack:

A bloke here in Scunny was in the paper a bit back. He got thrown off eBay, he was selling mobile phones that turned out to be photos of mobile phones. He didnt get done though cos it said in the item description that they was bidding on a photo of a phone. Some of them went for 200 quid or more. The bloke need stringin up by his thingies.

out of order doin stuff like that, but how can you stop it? eBay do as much as they can, and short of proof reading every listing to be sure of what is going on, what else is there? There must be thousands of listings goin on every day.

Thats why i dont like eBay, i have bought few things there only when is hard to come by or trying to save money. i mostly sell stuff on there even that i get people messing me around by not being interested in the item & not reply to countless emails i send, another way of saying 'dont want it' so why bid in 1st place?? :angry:

i hear lot of stories of eBay & sometimes reporting to square trade or something cant help! :offtopic: there was someone here bought a car from eBay, altezzcollin??, that had lot of issue with the car! things like that scares me off even more.

my advice is buy somethign for the kids online via 'official online shopping sites' (even them i not keen on)or go to the high street shops nxt few days even if it costs bit more.

Was it covered by paypal. Or was the wording in the ad to get round that.

She complained, but apparently, the wording was ambiguos and a bit double entree,

so two people reading it, could interperate it differently
