Can anyone please explain?

Posts to anywhere in the world except the UK. What the hell have we done to upset him?

Often, the reason for the ridiculously high price is that they are out of stock, so to be able to keep the listing live until stock arrives the price goes up so that nobody buys them.
Hi Cobraboy.
Unfortunately, it sounds like you are speaking from experience. Don’t worry, I have no intention of wasting my hard earned dollars.

I have never had an issue with eBay but I have been well and truly shafted by Paypal in the past (twice in fact!) and only use them as the last resort when no other payment option is available.

So the pope is peed off too. I believe he was looking for a respray as the stone chips on the bonnet are starting to rust.

If the Popemobile needing cosmetic attention is a P6, the bonnet might be corroding, but it isn't rusting!
Sorry, I'm such a pedant. Getting my coat...
Just making sure you weren't walking into a bear trap.

How are things down there ?
Hi Cobraboy,
Thank you for your concern.
All is good in this part of the world. I am well and truly out in the sticks well away from the big smoke, keeping out of trouble.
It’s a dangerous time to be trawling eBay.
You end up buying a load of stuff you don’t actually want or need!
