Question Can I ask a stupid question!!

I was looking for another back up camera and found a site but a lot of the cameras are listed with "GUCCI" at the end of the listing!?! Does anyone know what this means?

Example: (this is the title of the listing!?!?)

NEW 2009 Nikon D90 Digital SLR Camera Body 7 Len gucci


THANKS!!!!!

Re: Can I ask a stupid question!!

It looks like a search tag.
Therefore, anyone searching "Gucci" will be presented with this as an option.....
Damn sneaky way to get your product to a wider audience?...

As suggested, avoid.

Re: Can I ask a stupid question!!

(Ioffer) quite big and is trying to compete with E-Bay .You can import you selling items straight into the Ioffer setup.
I would suggest not much difference to E-bay just watch what you are buying.Most of the private sellers are outside the UK though.

Re: Can I ask a stupid question!!

I was more concerned about the items themselves. Offered at stupid prices by users who'd registered for all of 2 weeks. scam.

Re: Can I ask a stupid question!!

why not phone them and them ask them the question?, you'll then get an idea if they are dodgy or not .. if you buy, you also have a contact for any problems as well [no phone number!!! don't even look ]

Re: Can I ask a stupid question!!

Here is the thing about the flea bays....
We recently unloaded ourselves of the wii.
It had gone into disuse, as the games were pretty basic, and I am bad enough at golf without the machine taking the outa my "swing"...
I would have put it on the flea bay, but, as comments show, there is this trepidation to anyone on that "site" who is not long-time registered and fully stacked up with the reputation points....

So how would someone who has no account on that site start selling if no one will deal with them?...

Point to consider... If I was to go on there to buy anything and I saw my own advert as a brand new seller with ZERO rep points, would I be suspicious?....
Erm....
Yep!

Thankfully this time, our own network of friends and neighbours knew of our unwanted item, and it just so happened that one of them had a son who wanted one of these machines...
wii got a good price for the thing, the 'going rate', so problem solved.

Re: Can I ask a stupid question!!

On a serious note I buy a lot on E-bay. I bought my first DSLR (300D) there at a big discount, even with import duty (came from Canadian dealer). Just need to do research, including a phone call if possible as has been mentioned above.

Armani! Give me a touch of the one.............? I think the catchphrase was "Flash it on all over" wasn't it?
