With the greatest respect, you are being obtuse.
Voucher was redeemed before making purchase.
3 hours later the seller reported it as stolen/misused in an attempt to keep money and voucher. Unfortunately vendor in question will take 6-24 hours to process the order as they need to order in packaging supplies to ship the item.
it was a £150 saving on £600 - which was the market rate. Its not the first time i have bought this particular type/class of voucher, nor will it be the last.
Just need to tighten my checks a bit, and place additional protections on a higher value. Lesson learned for next time. After completing a large amount of trade in these vouchers since Jan, I got a bit “comfortable”. Lessons learnt for next time i guess.
Scammers gonna Scam.
