Quote from the listing:

"The card has been tested in 3 different digiboxes and works in all as FTA card only (NON-ACTIVE you will not get (or see) ITV1/2 CH4/5)."

Some poor sucker has bid a fiver for this. :-doh!

:D

Yes, and that sucker will then pay £2.99 for his activation tips. I really detest these chancers, they rely on ignorance and that people will not properly read their deliberately misleading description.

Here's another one, a bit more honest, but still a chancer. _http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=60837&item=5787008107&rd=1

The descriptions in his other items don't show a very consistent story either.

Here he claims to have sold his own card and is now selling his friends, but he’s also sold a card which he claims belonged to his parents, and a faulty digibox and card that he tested on a friends dish. Why not use his own dish? The parents card is also listed as showing E4.

Maybe I'm just reading too much into this, but in each case he's selling a card that doesn't belong to him and a tidy little story explaining why it doesn't belong to him.

I don't like these people that much, but I think their slightly better then the guy I saw a month or so ago selling lots of 100 co codamol tablets. Not only are they are a controlled substance, but they were five times the price they should have been (they can be bought over the counter at pharmacies, cheaply, just in weak strengths and not packs of 100). He's now no longer selling them ;) which is good, as he was giving 17 year olds who have been refused codeine in all their local pharmacies an easy way to get hold of it.

I replied:
But there is no software available that will do anything with a Sky card which has not been activated, sounds like a scam to me
His reply:
What will you do with a sky card?Please check these items in your search box...5776868290....and 5782048359. I can assure you I am selling a genuine item and a bargain to anyone who is in the know!
The first of these items is the magical unlock information. :-lmao and the second is the old false prefix ruse. ;)
