I do laugh sometimes at eBay adverts. I found one today for surgical masks with a large ‘UK stock’ banner on the main photo. So I had a look in more detail…

And it’s clearly bogus.

The item location is given as China. The listing says that it is a free (postage) service from outside the UK. The seller name is given in English but the address is all given in Chinese. The email (hotmail) account does not match the stated English name in any way. And, of course, the stated address is indeed in China with a full Chinese company trading name to boot.

And the expected date of arrival of these UK stocked masks given today is the 29th January? “Estimated between Tue. 24 Mar. and Thu. 2 Apr.” Oh, right, UK then!
