Well now. I've got a few empty tins of various sorts kickin' around. Maybe he'll take'em in trade...

"Actual photos of the product!"

Yep, believe it or not, these are actual genuine photos of an empty tobacco tin. I'm just relieved I was already sat down when I saw them.

Think the best I’ve seen on the bay was an Ashton Canadian……35 grand or something ridiculous.
To be fair to the seller, I remember he was in the Ukraine so he might of got the exchange rate mixed up.

Ive actually heard people say they see empty tobacco tins sell for hundreds of dollars. Because ebay doesn't allow tobacco sales.
Then they post their empty tin and ask a ridiculously low price of $100.
Its a fake market made up by idiots!!

$17.80 shipping fee. It must be a collector's item.

I don't care if this guy finds a sucker or not. Heck, you can't get it if you don't ask. I am not that sucker.

eBay
Does anyone remember when burnt toast was selling on auction format for hundreds?
Or the mystery boxes ?

I think I remember a court case on Judge Judy about a buyer from eBay claiming to be ripped off not receiving an item while the auction listing clearly stated they would get a picture of it instead. JJ had to side with the seller on that one but not until after they got an earful

Ive heard this before.
Another thing to look out for is on Wish.
I have never bought from them but ive heard the shady stories.
Like the guy who found an e-bike on Wish for like $30.
The add described the bike in detail.
What he got was an electric bicycle horn.
Small print said this price was for the HORN. :)
