    I don't see anything wrong with it. Dude got into position 4 in the queue, others did not.

    Anyway, I would not buy that spot, but if others are willing to then what's the problem?

    I don't see this eBay auction going anywhere though. I suspect someone could put in BS bids, be a deadbeatbidder and then by the time the iPad is released the guy will not have his money for the spot haha

    I don't see anything wrong with that at all - that person is simply selling their services (waiting in line for you).

    If people are willing to pay - why not - it's not like it means line-cutting or anything of that nature...

    The only thing I see wrong with it is theres 13 bids on it.

    "I took my place by mistake in the queue two days ago not realising it was the queue for the new Apple iPad 3 to be released in UK on 16th March."

    As pointed out a few posts above this,
    How the heck does that happen?

    well I say lets bid this thing up .

    The annoying thing about ebay (for sellers) is that nothing is done to deadbeat bidders who just decide not to pay. A warning or something, but thats it.


    Damn, I tried but you cant bid from the USA :(

    Even if this were legit, I can't imagine the other people in the line behind the person who wins this auction will be very happy. I can imagine it ending badly for both the buyer and seller...

    I still find it hard to comprehend that someone is willing to pay over £100 to get in a line when tesco is selling them at midnight probably with no lines! :eek:

    Who sleeps outside a store for two days accidentally?

    This guy is lying through his teeth, why can't he just be straight forward and just sell the spot without stupid excuses.:rolleyes:

    I took my place by mistake in the queue two days ago not realising it was the queue for the new Apple iPad 3

    as many have quoted, funny lol!! reminds me of The Committments when they had auditions and one came to the door saying, I only queued up because I thought you were selling drugs...lol!!

    All you wanna do is ride around Sally .... Royid...Sally Royid!!
