    I've been looking at LCDs on eBay for the past few days, and I came across a few LCDs that are being "sold" by a certain person. It turns out that what is really being sold is information, but that is not evident until the print at the bottom of the listing. I've seen information auctions before, but never so disguised as this. There are buyers bidding in the $100s on some of these auctions. I emailed a few of them to warn them. Wasn't sure what else I could do.

    Here is a listing of the sellers current auctions:

    I agree xsivforce...

    That's awful. The gits!.
    They should have their accounts locked, and need investigating by Ebay.

    That is a blatant effort at trying to secure monies by deception. Sure he tells you what you get in the small print...
    But why all the tech-items for "suppossed" auction? Where's the relevance.

    Seems Ebay need to vet their submissions/members more closely

    the thing is, and yes, this guy is an ass, but there is so many like him that it's not going to do a lot just to get rid of one guy, he'll probably get another name and come back again....

    People do need to be more careful, though. It's easy to get wrapped up in bidding and not realize it's still your money, and you need to be careful with it.
