Aaaaaarrrggghhh
I brought the Verses but guess wot? Went through the checkout etc to then only get an email cancelling the order. In fairness to the seller he did email me and advised that regrettably this book and the other one had both just been brought by one person.
So going back to a previous thread clearly Abe allow multiple buyers to go through checkout? Suppose this makes sure book sells but it's a bit of a odd way if doing business selling an item twice?
Neverind maybe next time!

Following on from this great article I was by chance on abe books earlier and spotted a book right at top of a search under 'Recently added'

I had been after a copy for a while and brought it straight away as a good price.

Some 20 minutes later I received an email as it was on my watch list advising it was for sale?

This suprised me but maybe thats computers for you?
However it may offer a possible explanation re recent book offered which started the artice! ie if i had brought this one again I bet it would have let me all through checkout etc even though actually sold.

Interesting?

There is something very odd with this listing.

I know exactly where it is listed elsewhere and it is still for sale - ie appears ! NOT to be owned by the ebay seller above. I have noticed he has very carefullly changed his wording to say it is listed elsewhere and not for sale by him.
I asked for more photos - all sorts of exscuses and he then advised he couldnt send any- wonder why?

Why is this odd ? Because the other place has it for sale @ £1500.
So here is the scam - someone buys it from him- he pockets money and then buys it from other place for £1500 making a nice £1200!

I might be wrong but thats what i reckon.

Of course if this is the case one floor in plan - he wont sell it at £2700 - well i hope not !
Have reported to ebay

BEWARE
