Re: is this good deal or to good to be true

if the address you pick it up from is '3rd caravan on the right' then it may well be too good to be true

Re: is this good deal or to good to be true

just found it on ebay , definatly dodgy !! no address or location or phone number , and it reads "looks to be in very good condition " "277 hours but not garunteed" hhmmmm ? surely if it was yours youd know if it was in good nick or not ? also no feed back or history of the guy selling it AND he wants to contact outside ebay using different email adress !! still a bargain though
