Re: Caveat emptor

Is it me or are many of the starting prices on eBay now way way above what they should be? Also, some sellers describe what they are selling as something they are clearly not in a hope to get the less knowledgeable to bid? For example a buy it now photo of the tail & rear fuselage of a Do 17 no date, unit or details so nothing special at all….buy it now for €129.98….€15 postage…..plus VAT outside EU!

Re: Caveat emptor

Occasionally, sellers use "copy protection" that simply cancels the sample photo, no details can be discerned. Like this recent example:
Attached Images
File Type: jpg Képkivágásuj.JPG (28.2 KB, 29 views)

Re: Caveat emptor

It definitely is. Empty period photo albums have a good selling value on eBay, for a purpose...
