Beware of any dealing with ebay seller stokecitybadgeman, aka Grant Harris. This person is a con artist. Either sends different item to one bought, or claims to have sent second class with no proof of postage. I know of at least 5 people that have been stung by this person, so buyers beware.

I would have thought at least one of the five would have left some sort of comment to make others aware of any problems. At least you have warned us.

This is a copy of a PM i received from another disgruntled customer and former contributor to this site.
Littlewiggy - I've had unpleasant dealings with him too, the last occasion he wanted £15 off me to send five small pin badges as apparently, his advert "never stated" that postage would be combined - I politely explained that the practice was generally assumed on eBay, as multiple purchases are mutually beneficial to both buyer & seller alike. Less work for them, and a bob or two saved for us.

He disagreed so I told him I wasn't paying and he should report me to eBay. I'll gladly tell them why I'm not paying up, I explained. Eventually he backed down & charged me four quid - still astronomical given they arrived adorned with a 2nd Class large stamp - but I paid it & vowed to give him a wide berth from thereon. Which I have, no matter how nice a badge he's since been selling - I simply don't want to trade with somebody who I cannot respect or trust to play fair.

I think its people in the UK complaining, you charge £2.50 or £3 for things posted either 1st or 2nd class large letter so just stamps costing either £1.15 or 88p and don't combine postage, thats seems to be the complaint i'm seeing
