Kent blag cash fenced on eBay

'£50m in used notes - quick sale'

Updated Reader Rob Griggs-Taylor reckons the following eBay auction won't be up for long*, but describes it as "pure class". We agree on both counts:

For sale: £50m in used notes

Nicely done, especially the blurb which reads: "Recently aquired [sic] collection of used bank notes. Ideal for collector who doesn't ask too many questions. If you catch my drift."

We certainly do. The current top bid of 10 million quid says this auction is down before you can say "get your trousers on, you're nicked". ®

Update

*Yup - it's gone already (14:30 GMT). We really need to start charging for this auction-killing service.
