Thanks for the warning. I suspect that the poster of the thread at click here wishes he had seen a warning like this :(

Anyone who sends money off for this obvious scam deserves to loose every penny as they cannot be trusted to own money.


ps...another clue is that Tony Leung is a rather famous actor from Hong Kong.

It's plainly stated these goods are stolen, I personally hope anyone who goes for then looses lots of money & then their fingers drop off after a week or so.

I agree, those who openly want to buy stolen goods dererve what to be ripped off - they are as bad as the thieve's!

But maybe the seller is a bit of a Robin Hood & wants to rip off people who are into stolen goods? - not such a bad idea then.


  LIVING_ON_BORROWED_TIME 14:29 13 Jul 2003

Yes but if less people bought stolen goods in the first place then less goods would end up stolen!

Or is that where the fairies live??

Jesus it sounds like Del boy flogging china 40 years ago on the market....."no disrespects to market traders"
