Please read about the EBay scam, on tips, If you recieve a pm saying there are articles from your family for very careful.
You cant look at what you are buying before you part with your money.
Its a good trick, apparently a run on old Bibles from charity shops lately. The scammer them writes a family name inside and voila a family relic selling for £100s . A good return for a book that cost pennies but a nasty trick.
