set of bidders (mostly from USA)and mostly newbies. Weird. Seller's feedback hidden but has done satisfactory deals.

Anyone who spells guarantee "garrantie" shouldn't be touch with the proverbial.

How do they get away with it?

I looked again and the top bidder with the variable (often) name jumped from £500 to £3333.
He/she seems a "fruit case" with a host of name changes and retractions, as well as keeping feedback private.

We'll probably never know who bought this deal and whether it was ever completed.

Dodgier than a dodgy person that's dodgy from Dodgyland.

Even the banks chosen for payment, reek of suspicion, but the sale is over and I'll resolve this.

Talking about good deals on eBay. If today's Daily Express is correct, then the owner of Chelsea football club as instructed his legal people to put in a bid of 85 million for a not yet built yacht or ship that's being advertised on eBay.

Apparently, he already owns three similar vessels, with a market value of 65 million on his best 'toy' of the fleet.

I don't think anyone lost their money on that bid - look at the winning bidder:
