How many people on here habe brought Queen related items on Ebay? I have brought loads of stuff. Albums, singles ect... Ive never had a bad item, although I would never buy bootlegs or autographs. I got Barcelona the other day for £1 and when it cam, I recieved 7 copies of the single all in mint condition with the 1987 picture sleeve! Anybody interested in the other 6 then drop me a line!

I must have bought almost 200 items on ebay so far, all of them Queen-related. Only one bad experience so far (some Russian guy stole $70). Many many bargains.

One major problem, one minor one. As long as you deal with people with good feedback, you'll be fine.

And there are many bargains.

I haven't bought that much, but all my experiences have been good.

P_G - this guy had a 99% feedback with 500+ entries but suddenly decided to start cheating, he had about 10 new negative feedbacks the week after I sent the money. I have no problem with posting his address because he openly admitted to me he stole the money, there's no discussion about that. If only he at least lied that "it got lost in mail" but he couldn't be bothered.

I know you're frustrated with this guy, Martin, but I also know you understand where I'm coming from.

Bought lots of stuff there, on and off since 1997, and got fucked only once. I bought around 50 dollars worth of Queen stuff from a pretty well known guy from south-america. The guy never sent anything...

I've bought three related Queen items off eBay, and they've all been fine, except one - a WWRY DVD which had the description of a real one, but was infact a bootleg. After I bought it the guy became a non registered member so I couldn't leave feedback, and he stopped answering my emails. But it still plays fine, so its OK.

I've also bought half my Mansun collection (at least!) off eBay, and touch wood, they've all been great!

I bought over 50 Queen-related items. Had one very bad experience: A guy, named Howard Dean (Paypal:Hwong_815@hotmail.com) sold me a extremely fake cdr copy of a promo cd. He refuses to send me the money back
