    They're not that good.

    If they were, the description would be full of vague terms that applied to both what you assume it is and what it actually is.


    I'm trying to figure out where that address is... I know someone in that area who had a shop-owner try to trick him into moving out [get friends to try and break in > convince the area is bad > offer to buy the house] and this sounds like the sort of thing they'd do.

    In this situation there are no winners.

    It appears to be quite lucrative.

    Not really. I have literally 3 minutes left at work and I'm still trying to sort this.

    [10 minutes when I posted that. Took me all of 5 seconds to type and post.]

    Indeed. Maybe the disk data is in Glasgow and the burning/packaging/shipping is automated and triggered from Ilford...

    The seller had a whole raft of 'Phone utilities' for sale. Another one here for a Nokia going for over £100!

    The funniest thing is that I bet nothing on that CD is of any use on a modern smartphone...the whole thing looks like it's from an early 2000s timewarp

    Also lol @ your friends wont believe their eyes when you show them 'TV quality' 'AVI clips' being played in widescreen!!!

    Tbh although he is a scammer, if anyone is so thick they cannot even read the description before bidding on something like a phone, they kind of deserve it. The kind of auctions where they are made to look real but in tiny text say' you are bidding on a box' I do sympathise with buyers but not this one.
