    Con, I have reported it. Same as last one on here.
    If it is brand new and under £100 it is a con.

    Hi Jay ,firstly well done Gromett :thumb: The con was on here 4/5 weeks ago and quite a few funsters grabbed the bargain (just in case it was one ) then it turned out to be a con :Doh:They then had to go through the process of claiming money back --none reported back so as far as we know they have either lost money or got it back ??????????

    Must be a con , I agree, but there is no negative feed back, and most feed back is 2 years ! He must have had loads of neg feedback so why do's it not show up ?

    probably a copy of a legit site.

    very similar advert to last time

    send an email to the vendor

    [HI]but i think you would be wise to avoid purchase of this item
    [/HI]
    delivery would probably.be that from hong kong or china

    It is a hijacked account. The hijacker only placed the Ad today.

    So it shows how many have been sold (was 10 when I looked earlier) But as none have been despatched there won't be any ratings yet...

    I think his E-Bay name monkeybum might be a clue. Keeps his solar panels the same place as a monkey keeps its nuts:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    these sort of adds show up on Friday eve or Saturday

    These sort of adds show up on a Friday evening or a Saturday so that there is no record of them being dispatched until the following week. It is only when someone on here spots them that the bells start to ring. By the time Ebay responds money has been paid for them... Interesting that some people think that they can get a solar panel that cheap.

    If the deal looks to good, then it is.

    The fraudsters hijack an account that has not been used for a while..I always look at their feedback and see what sort of seller they are...eg business, private...
