RUN.

There was a group doing that last year & targeting migrants to the UK.

Now these kids ( & they were young) undertook to list just like the advert.

Items were phake, dodgy, whatever you want to call them and ebay suspended their accounts.

Please avoid this trap

They are using UK email accounts but want you to list on Ebay Australia

They will send phake products and you will pick up the bill

Run as fast as you can

Sounds like he's trying to flog of his items on someone else, perhaps he's banned for that very reason of eBay himself, seriously who can't send their own items?
