How can it be a con?. They do make it quite clear that it is 'Information Only' and a refund is offered, if you do not like the e-book.

They want you to pay them £9.95 on the basis that manufacturers will give you lots of free expensive stuff. Manufacturers just do not give away their products like this.

They tell you what to say in the email and the mfr just sends you the top notch gear like laptops and and whatever else.

Yeah right, I'll keep my £9.95.

Smart move :-)

And when I go to check the link its all been removed!! Looks as if eBay thought there was fish to fry as well.

£40 postage????

you'd be mad to pay that, how can they get away with charging that amount?

Postage is not included in the part that ebay take a % from and if you want the item you will pay.

  SG Atlantis® 19:01 20 Feb 2006

so the seller is dodging fees then. I don't think that's allowed. What happens if the phone is faulty, does he get to keep forty quid of your dosh as it's "postage".

not allowed.
