They told me to put 'pasties' on it, which are nipple tassles, but in the UK pasties are something slightly different, so I've done this.

Weirdos.

Love it,

That'll confuse um, or at least give a clear message about what you think of them

Smile have you linked your listing to that image?

If you do, don't forget to include the disclaimer

"Pasties not included", or your buyer might file a SNAD Smile

Ha , love the pastie story. I may be weird but as a single man, the mannequin is rather alluring!!! even more so with pasties added, but I am from northern England where we love a pie a or pastie!!

Seriously though, I am about to sell some music and camera equipment on Ebay so this is worrying. The last item I sold, the winning bidder tried the old complete the transaction outside ebay/redirect the item to Nigeria trick, took a while to get the fees back for that item, and the hassle of reselling the item again.

regards Scott

Well the whole pasty business must be rather unwholesome and sordid since the firewall this computer's got on it, won't let me see it!

Hilarious!!!

My daughter often uses Ebay for both buying and selling.............whenever she's had a buying problem it's been sorted eventually. But personally I wouldn't use it. There are too many people after my money as it is, without inviting conmen to help themselves.

Looks that way to me, ive been an ebay member since jan 04, but after my latest transactions have completed/been finalised i'm deleting my account, and using other sites (if i find any? recommendations welcome Smile )

Shame as i used to go to car boots, pick stuff up cheap and sell it on ebay and make a killing...

but hiding bidder ids will only increase schill bidding (have reported it in the past, and guess what, nothing happens..), and now forcing paypal on every listing is the final straw. So goodbye eba(tt)y you're history.

Off to get a pasty now, (subliminal advertising i'm sure) lol

So does anybody have any experience of any alternatives ?? If so which ones?

Have used ebid in the past as a buyer , found the prices a little cheaper than ebay , probably due to less competition.

ALso had success in selling and buying on the classifieds : Vivastreet , Gumtree , preloved

I very rarely use evilbay to buy camera equipment, but I do use it to purchase my LDD, I have never been stung and have always recieved what I paid for eventually, but almost always ended up paying over the odds (bloody snipers) and have since found alternative ways to get them at a set price that's reasonable. From other collectors! lol!

Nothing wrong with sniping, its the best way to avoid being shilled.
