Chip shop raffle taken away?

If your listings are breaking eBay’s rules, it’s probably not a good idea to advertise that fact on the BBC. Their website this morning carries the story of a Belfast chip shop being raffled off, with the £100 tickets being sold on eBay. The owner apparently told reporters, “I decided to just take the chance of raffling the business in the hope I’ll get 1,000 people willing to try their luck at winning.”

It’s a shame he didn’t read eBay’s listing rules first: . As the listing seems to have disappeared now, I suspect the seller found this out the hard way.
