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

Hi Laurin
Welcome. A few members do have shops and are more regular sellers and am sure can quote you some figures.
These sets come onto ebay every now and again although i sometimes feel the best bet is to get them individually unless yo ureally want the box?
for example your can get a lotr buy now for £64 + £10 postage to german . An offer and you will get for less (maybe £50-£60 i am sure)

Anyhow good luck in your search
