PZ.
Okay, http://cgi.ebay.com.au/IDE-To-CF-Wit...QQcmdZViewItem

Closed with no bids. Bid @ $80 buy now for $85.

So it gets relisted.

Bid @ $95, Buy it now for $100. Doesnt this person learn ?

No longer using "Amiga" in the item title I see?

PZ.

he/she can get away with is becasue nobody has told ebay that he/she is selling pirated software. I personaly could care less. Not going to buy and glad to know the real cost, but honestly for a noob this might be easy and quick way to get things up and working... some people have more money than time/skill.

Alright, Alright.

Reported.

[edit] I was more than willling to let the Auction expire (AGAIN) Who on earth RELISTS the same item that didnt sell previously, for MORE ?

[edit2] Woohoo, success.

I emailed the seller, "Reminding" them that offering the OS was an act of copyright infringement, and was the ORIGINAL disk also supplied.
Here is the reply.

""Well then you know how much the Original OS is!!! In that case you will
not get the Original sent in that auction at that price!!! What i have for
sale is a IDE hard drive connector With a Compact Flash card & I don't state
3.9, i realized what you are saying when i checked my auction the other day
& changed it. you either seen it before it went through ebay changes has it
does not say that when you look now!!!! I do have the original OS 3.9 but
when i sell that it will be in it's own seperate auction. Or you can make
an offer for it???? BUT it won't be cheap!!!!""

So I offered her/him/it AU$10

Funnily enough, they have *ALTERED* the auction

[Next edit]

ooooohhhhhhhh I hit a nerve.

""Yeah deposit it into my account!!!! By the way you are wrong you can sell
OS without Original Product if it is already installed on a hard drive & you
don't want it beacause it is too small for your uses. has you can see there
are 2 other auctions with 3.1 OS installed on the hard drive & they are not
the only ones there have been heaps sold over the years with os installed
has long has you don't include other software with it that could be
copyrighted!!!! let me know when you want to deposit the $150.00 for the
OS!!!!!!""

Maybe me because I'm not particularly likeable...or maybe the seller because she is from outer space and the pumpkin butt is pointing ever-so-slightly upward...I cannot decide

This greedy bastard regularly uses a number of different accounts to flog copied stuff on ebay. I report all of his items on an almost daily basis, but ebay still doesn't take them off or ban his account - maybe more people reporting him will make them (ebay) pull their heads out of their arses.

He also currently trades as:

pigsflyin2006
myfour_sons

and has previously traded as 'pigsflyin2005', before that account was killed. His real name is John (lastname withheld in case of legal crap, but is ironic considering his un'Law'ful activity) and he lives in Hoppers Crossing ('A Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy').

He has another ebay account buy I cannot recall offhand what it is.. I'll see if I remember later.

I feel sorry for the poor sod who only two days ago bought his kit (including burnt DVDs) for $75 with a 64MB CF card!

The worst bit has to be that I helped the prick out via email and phone for about 3 hours (coz he was too thick to work it out himself, even with the detailed step by step instruction manual (with pics!) I sent him) after I sold him an A1200 and a CF transfer kit. So I know he's selling copies of the PCMCIA install floppy and the instruction manual I made for him in the first place.

I've been tempted to put together 256MB transfer kits and advertise them on ebay for <$40 so everyone can see how much he's ripping them off for.

Thanks for the heads up on this guy.. I've bought from him in the past without trouble, but will obviously be more cautious in the future..
