Which means, if it doesn't get from GSP to his home in the USA, or if the guy claims it didn't get there, GSP will refund him, but I won't be charged.


That sounds like a loophole waiting to be exploited... I hope they have good tracking and signed for facilities!

They do indeed! I'm actually very impressed by their tracking system.

Re: Ebay ridiculousness

To enter into the realm of complete conspiracy theory, they might be trying to force a collectors bubble. If they've got a box of 100 copies of 1E WFRP, which easily sell for £20 each then the investment to build a track record of inflated prices makes sense. A third party will enter the fray, they'll pay up the dosh, then relist and bounce the item between them, creating a false trail of value, skewing the market. They can then sell their stock for silly money. Similar thing happened with Disney Black Diamond VHS tapes, and lets be honest RoC:LatD is neither as rare or as good as the price demanded.

and now... it begins!

By the way, just to follow on from this story -- the guy received the book, left positive feedback and no attempt was made to refund the money.

An extremely mysterious (but rather fortuitous) occurrence! I put the money in my retirement fund.

Re: Ebay ridiculousness

I just saw this. Sorry if it's someone on here. These casts look pretty terrible and labeling them "unreleased" kind of cracked me up and made me want to scream "false advertising" at the same time.

I don't know about false advertising - read the description, it's quite funny. Still, recasting is wrong.

I was kind of joking about the false advertising.

Only 5 and a bit times the price too. A bargain!
