Peculiar listing - possible cell phone details?

Recommended Posts

booksallsizes

Hi there

 

This is a strange listing.. :wtf: but the reason for this post is that I get the feeling that the user-name is actually a cell phone number. I could be wrong or this could be another way people are trying to buck the system.

Definitely seems to be a cell number - have you reported it to CW?

I cant understand what makes people want to bypass the system to save 5%.

I could have reported a number of users for this kind of thing who most of the time want to save me the commission.Silly.

Hi

 

Out of curiosity, I just called that number and yes it does belong to the person selling the table, however she is a total newby and her son created the account for her. The table in the listing is pretty unique and I told her that using her cell number as a username is against BOB rules. She asked me if I could help her to change it and to list her table correctly. I am going to try help the poor soul.

 

Doesn't seem like she is trying to bypass BOB fees though, just pure ignorance, thats all.

The way I see it or should I say the way "I feel it" is that,that is stealing so what goes around comes around or is it " what comes around goes around"?

Actually, when I choose the 'search for sellers' option and type in '08' or '07' there are plenty of people that seem to be using cell numbers as user names...:amazed: - have a look...

Hi OHT32.

I must commend you on helping this newbie - I surmise that there are MANY cell numbers being used as usernames.

Cheers
