The only thing this guy sees is how much people are willing to pay for Moonstone.
The only thing the buyer is going to see before receiving his package is what a great bargain he made.

We are not speaking of an original here, just a basteroid (tm & (c) Fiath) selling a crack hoping for a sucker.

I emailed the guy asking him about it, and he freely admits that they are pirated copies, doesn't seem to occur to him that what he's doing is wrong...

I can't believe that E-Bay would allow this sort of thing to be advertised on their service. I was under the impression that (c) material and Porn and Pirated things were NOT allowed.

Even More so I can't believe that someone would even think about selling this kinda thing .......There again with the prices on E-Bay that MOONSTONE has been selling for it's not that much of a supprise
