Just wanted to let all you forum folk know thats theres some chap on ebay who tries to buy the first three 'rare' reuben singles as cheaply as he can and then sells them on for a much higher price...

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Reuben-Lets-Stop-Hanging-Out-CRAZY-RARE_W0QQitemZ4807219725QQcategoryZ1572QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

His user name is: "my_attempts_to_redefine_your_hip-hop_guidelines"

I know he's not doing anthing illegal or anything, It just seems like a low thing to do, So it hough I could warn people then they could decide if they still wanted to buy from/sell to him.

Meh.

I don't get how you can buy them cheaper than everyone else?! So he's bidding for something, winning then selling it on? That seems like a good kind of thing because then it will give more people a chance to buy a copy if that makes sense.

been spending stupid amounts of money over the last year completing my reuben collection, only cd i need now is scared of the police, its up at the moment but for like 55!

It doesn't give more people a chance to get a copy... one person ends up with it. They just pay more than they would have if he hadn't bid it up in the first place.

It's not exactly wrong... just twatty.

I guess that's one way of looking at it!

Besides, there's thousands of people actually make their living this way now, buying and selling stuff on ebay. Is it really any different to someone who bought it for 2 in a record shop selling it for 55? Guess not. We only care cos we WANTS THEM.

I mainly thoguth i'd stick this on here just as a precaution, so whoever was buying/selling to this fellow could avoid him they wanted.

He tried to buy my stux when i put it up for 10 and as soon as he has 'bought it now' It was back up (same picture!) for 39.

So i refused to sell it to him.
