Hi guys, im lee new to the forum :). Little info on me I have been plastering/rendering for 20years, I run a 3 gang which includes my dad with over 40 years experience. Enough about me lol ;-D.

I was looking to buy a ritmo powercoat plus, mtec smart from eBay the other day(some of you guys might of been bidding on it). I contacted him with a couple of questions he asked me straight away if I wanted to buy it now,I said yes I would be up for that we agreed a price and I said I would pick it up cash on collection the next day. he was having none of it and insisted I pay him on a bank transfer, and he would post it only.I said cash on collection only and he used every excuse from he was in a wheel chair and had ill health to he needed bank transfer as a deposit cos he had loads of people interested, it was very obvious in the end he was trying to con me and didn't have the machines at all so please beware guys

Hi mate, he said I am taking it off eBay because we have a deal. I bet he made the same deal with all the other bidders (scumbag). he had just set the eBay account up so the alarm bells was ringing anyway.Theres loads of people doing it apparently. So moral of the story stick to eBay and PayPal or cash on collection(never banker transfer).
his details
