Indeed. Another thing I have seen on eBay is people selling unofficial Knightmare T-Shirts for £19.95! Have just reported one listing on currently.

I spotted another auction offering 'rare' Knightmare items with the help of Robin.

I sent a question to the seller and have found out he is attempting to sell KM DVDs as his 'rare' item.

I hope my email back to him will be a good enough warning for him to stop. :)

What kind of punishment can this lead to if this doesn't cease?
If the only way is onward how would you get home for tea?? :-/

Hopefully something painful..... Just kidding, though it infuriates me when people do this.

Seems like such sellers are now keeping the auction open for shorter times e.g. one/three days in order not to be shut down by eBay in time.

I'm sure eBay could shut them down within that time, but they probably just say that they can't. Meanwhile, the sale is made and they get a little richer. :S
Subject to change.

Ebay have shut own several user account in the past due to intervention from the show's producers, if my email to this person goes unnoticed, am sure the same thing may happen here.

Usually they delete the auction first, then repeated offenders get banned.

This chap does nto seem to realise what he's doing wrong, so I doubt it is mallicious.

someone paid £16 for those tapes. it disgusts me.
Now, I don't like to gloat...what am I saying? I can't believe I just said that, dear me, what a little fibber I am. Of course I like to gloat...love it, something of a hobby.
