definitely dodgy. All his auctions have ended early and he becomes a bit abusive if you question his methods and why he answers valid questions with 'a' seems a bit annoyed :) Will definitely add as a 'favourite ' seller. Have also advised ebay to his dubious ways. Hope he puts more up for sale soon...

The 'game' usually goes something like this. They send you a fake Cheque, or one scammed from an unsuspecting punter. The amount will be for an amount significantly larger than what you ask for. They'll tell you to bank the cheque and keep a premium for yourself, then send the rest of the money by W...

Having done similar it can take anything from a couple of days to weeks. Plenty of support and don't put too much strain on it and you'll be fine.

As had been said before, removing the battery and allowing to dry normally at room temperature, ideally with no outside heat influence should do the trick.
same can be said for keyboards and coffee, as long as the coffee doesn't have sugar in as that tends to really mess them up

as stated, try the Supermarkets first and try to avoid the motorways.
Diesel is cheaper than unleaded out there. Carrefore (sp) was the cheapest place with prices very similar to over here, when we were in Montpelier earlier. Enjoy your trip Andy.

Thanks for the clarification Grumpy.

James, don't send it back till he has paid you, AND has covered your postage costs, at the very least . All this BS about him saying not to return it to his mums address all sounds very very suspect. Think about it, why would he only accept bank transfers? Will his cheque be valid? i'd be very wary....
