:( :( I am concerned that the person selling these EP's on Ebay appears to have an unlimited quantity of "UN-NUMBERED copies" of this release. Therefore, I have reported the matter to Ebay, and, advise TD fans to proceed with due caution, when bidding on these items. I will reply to this when Ebay have investigated further. 8) :arrow:

I have mentioned it a few times on here, I brought one and it seems genuine I think Tim is of the same opinion. its just worrying how many she is flogging and I must admit I do fear they are f-ake now

There was definately some unnumbered ones as listed on Voices On The Net, guess we will never know how many though as no one seems to know.

:D :D As an Ebay seller, I've been watching this for quite a while. The artwork on the sale page looks "iffy" both in color and tone, compared to the original "numbered" sleeve. I could be wrong, but, I'm becoming very suspicious of this particular 'regular as clockwork' sale item. :twisted: :arrow:

After the length of time the seller has been putting them up for auction it makes me think these are a copy,i hope for the buyer's sake they are not :arrow:

:D :D I still think this a 'cottage industry'" scam. Debs could certainly turn out much better artwork than on the ebay stuff, and the cds could be duplicated 'professionally'. KNOW WHAT I MEAN. :wink: :arrow: :D :D No matter what, if I get a hint of a scam, from Ebay. I'll report back, and warn fans to steer clear of this seller. :evil: :evil: :arrow:

Well, with so much recent TD music released as a limited edition, thus going out of print quickly, what else can we expect but a bootleg market appearing to satisfy the demant?

If TD wont, the bootleggers will.

If e bay were to ban all bootlegs..(pirate cd's excepted) it would be pish. They do state that selling boots & counterfiet material isn't permitted but wherever you look bootlegs are always readily available. I've bought loads and although they are illegal are increasingly difficult to find anywhere else. I have almost all official TD items and these days only search out rare boots.

I dont mind copies being on sale especially if it of rare or d-eleted material but the fact is I emailed the lady selling these SB EPs and asked how come you have so many are they copies. and she said "no I have worked in the music busniess and have some promos that were released"

I don`t know how many there were but she must have all of them if she is telling the truth, I have lost count of the amount of times I have seen them being sold.

Having said that they are darn good if indeed they are f-akes :wink:
