Some people viewing this site are selling copies of the Freddie Mercury Collection. I have just purchased a copy for just over £3000 from Ebay, and another link to the collection selling at a similar price is shown below. I have found this on Amazon. I hope you have still got your copies because I know people who are buying these for less than £100, and making a massive profit. Unfortunately when I wanted a copy for myself they did not have one, so I paid the price stated.
Even for a second hand copy, by which I mean it has been opened and the disks have been played, I would not expect to pay less than £2000.
Please have a serous look at the prices you are charging because I honestly cannot believe what I am reading on this and other websites. If it is possible to put a link to this message on other websites so that people can get a realistic price for this collection, please add one as soon as possible.
I note from your website that someone has already tried to warn you of this, and I just hope you are taking note of what people are telling you.

That's a wise purchase you made. I recently bought a copy from a tramp who lives under a flyover near my house, it cost me 70 million euro's and I had to give him a blowjob, it was a bit expensive but I really enjoyed sucking his cock, so happy days.
They've been spamming us with this message for a while, under different guises.
Anyone who pays £3000 is off their rocker. Also, anyone who sells it, thinking they're getting £3000 because someone else did, will inevitably get a chargeback later on, thus losing the money AND the "rare" item. Nobody here is (I hope) stupid enough to fall for this scam.
Either that, or it's advertising to draw us to the "£3000" product.....
Tell you what Lossless Join - I'll sell mine to you for £1500: I'll give you details of how to complete the bank transfer. It won't be paypal, or be done by credit card. Then you can sell it for £3000.......

How is that legal?
If someone has paid for an item and it has been delivered, then surely it's legally binding?
It's not legal - it's fraud. The person who has the item delivered may not be the person who "paid" for it. Have you never heard of chargeback scams? - look them up, very common.
If an item is paid for by a credit card (as invariably these £3000 transactions are) then the seller is opening themselves up for all sorts of trouble: if paid for using a cloned card, original card owner will not recognise the transaction and order a chargeback, so seller loses the funds (and by that time, the goods are also gone). It's not the "buyer" who's at risk.
The spamming of this subject is just the OP trying to plant a seed in the minds of the greedy collectors who think they've got a mug they can cash in on. In this instance, the item that the conman is trying to obtain isn't rare per se, but if they're desperate to have one, then who knows what sort of trick they may pull to have a freebie.?
3 grand!! thats got to be a joke... I've seen it on Ebay as a buy it now for about £170... link
you even get a free magazine with this one.
I bought mine on day of release, I begrudged the price at the time, Its certainly not worth £3000...
If anyone wants mine, I'll happily sell it to you for £2000, I have played the CDs and read some of, if not all of the words!
From the top of my head, the Rarities 1 cd contained the music from Rarities 3. Rarities 3 was ok. You could sent the disc back for a replacement.
My box was ok but I could buy a mispress from a dealer.
So a lot less worse than a certain RT box :)
I bought a near mint copy for 130 quid a few months ago.
One thing the sellers don't seem to realise is there are two different boxes, with either a PAL or NTSC DVD. The first one I bought had the NTSC DVD, I sent the boxset back for a refund because I wanted the PAL DVD (since most/all of it was filmed PAL I didn't want any frame rate and resolution conversion).
