I emailed the retarded **** the following...
Hi, can you please send me some detailed images of the bike and I can I pay cash and pick it up if I win this auction?
And his reply...
I will not make the same mistake twice. Last time i meat a buyer, i allmoust got "killed" in the procces. I will only deliver, on my expense, so please let me know if you are interested.
I got much the same when I asked to collect. He wanted Â£57 for delivery.
"first of all, as you sow, i'm registered as a business seller. second, you must understand that i need your name and address anyway, so please email it to me so we can start the procees. Also, since the auction has not ended yet, i would need to send your details and my details to eBay's Staff. Do you think i could do something with your name and address? I'm not asking for your back account, or credit card."
In retrospect it's so obvious that he is not the same person who wrote the advert.
Here is his email address for anyone who feels inclined: y t [firstname.lastname@example.org]
And the name used, not that he's likely to use the same one again:
ALAN G JOHNSON
