Crappiest thing ever bought on the EF

I was just thinking...one of the first things I ever bought off this forum was a Brit selling a used digital camera. I went to buy it, and for the first time in my life didn't check to see if it worked. After paying 50 CHF and getting it home to add batteries, I didscovered it only held in the memeory some of their kid pictures, and wouldn't take anything else.

I emailed her over and over again, for her to tell me that she would give me the money back, but, ooops, how unfortunate, she was always out of town or un available, but please erase the pics of her kids. Which I would have if the camera actually worked.

I never got the money back. And should have put me off. But I have gone on to fill my cellar with endless un wanted crap from the EF. Actually, the leaving or over buying or re decorating of expats has helped me stay out of Ikea and it's endless mazes, and allow to me afford an extra pint, extra often.

So, now that I am thinking of it, I am curious what was the worst thing anyone ever bought on here?

And dont be fooled by reputation either!

Status + Reputation = Honour?

Caveat Emptor ...

It's seems like what ever it is, it's full of complaints, beer, and always over priced.

Are we talking about the same Rciardo from Peru? The one I know steals more women then anything else. Great with salads though.
