Ebay regret. We’ve all done it.
We’ve all bought something without properly reading the description, and ended up (in my case) with a camera tripod made out of drinking straws, or a gigantic Stay-Puft marshmallow man.
After clicking ‘buy it now’ on her phone she thought no more of the incident, until a very small package arrived a few days later.
“I just saw the package on the floor and thought oh no what have I done now.”
Unfortunately, the embarrassment of this little story going worldwide as led to mum deleting her Ebay account, which is a crying shame.
And there seems to be something in the water around Nottingham when it comes to online tat market Ebay…
Nottingham Post: Bloke buys photo of Xbox from Ebay scammer for £450
Yes, he’s an idiot and admits it, but Ebay scammers are genuinely scum of the Earth who should be [standard APILN crimefighting suggestion coming up] forced through a kitchen strainer, turned into soup, and the soup poured down the drain.
And here’s the reason why: Mrs Apiln bought a hairdryer from an Ebay seller “brand new in original box” recently. It was clapped out and old, and in a box which had originally shipped knickers to Primark.
Seller’s excuse: “It was brand new to me, and that’s the box I got it in. Your move.”
Money back, seller’s account deleted.
So. Anybody want a really shit hairdryer, though?
