Ive had numerous traders buy stuff from em only to see the items up on ebay the following week.. I dont have a problem with that really, but sometimes its for about £3 more than they paid for it (see also spence.77) .. so after ebay and paypal take their cut they won't have made anything (often they will probably lose money). Ive also had greasy, toothless little shysters come round to collect and pay cash via either ebay or gumtree.. and then seen the items up for sale again days later..
I figure if people want to spend their time this way to make a pittance then that's their prerogative.
The end of the day people like Spence must make a living off it especially if as someone pointed out on here a while back he must be getting £1000+ a month credit card bills for his listings alone. If you got that lot for a reasonable price you could make quite a bit selling it off individualy, alot of hassle yes but sometimes you've got to do a bit of hardwork to make some cash. If i had a spare few grand i wouldn't mind bidding on it.
