In fairness to Rails-Vault,I`ve had a few bargains.I tend to look at Hornby Dublo or 12vDCTrix,items that i know i can repair or refinshed .I keep clear of obsolete items like Airfix or Mainline etc which are unrepairable owing to lack of spares.

it can't be as rare as he says, 'cos he's got another one for £59.50 that looks in just as good nick.

I personally wouldn't touch eBay. None model railway related but let down. I don't trust it.

What annoys me is that we never find out what is eventually paid for these items. Some of them turn up weeks later at a lower price but in the meantime it gives encouragement to the chancers to ask similar prices for tat. He has great trouble in describing modified or repainted stuff usually calling it kit built, I steer well clear!

Don't tarnish us all with the same brush my good man. I have a 958 deals, a purple star and 100% excellent feedback.

Not tarnishing all with the same brush. I wouldn't use it as they messed me around with a refund for an item and had some dodgy bloke from Nigeria trying to buy an item I was selling offering me double the price!! Yeah right no thanks

Ah the old 419 scam. Some Nigerian tried that nonsense on me, offering £5000 for a £500 pc. :lol: Do they think we are that gullible. :lol:
Not on ebay though.

There used to be a great thread on "scambaiters" where they scammed the scammer (from Nigeria) into meeting someone in Amsterdam outside a particular shop which just happened to have a webcam pointing out of its window. They also copied the local fraud squad in on the postings so he was busted live on the web.
