He comes round to my house;

He uses my computer;

He buys football memorabilia;

He uses my name and house delivery address;

He uses my credit card (OK, he is a good mate and I gave him the details and I trust him, cos he's my mate and he would always give me the money or his tot (Nightbar knows how valuable that is));

He buys stuff off ebay.

And all because he doesn't want his wife to know how much he is spending on football stuff.

OK, so he's my mate.

But, now he wants to buy some more stuff off ebay and sell his old banger to raise some dosh so I have had to open an ebay account cos he buys stuff in my name.

What do I need to know about ebay and all the problems I have heard about it?

Not going to comment on ebay but sometimes you have to draw the line and folk have to take responsibility for themselves and their actions?

I'll second that. I've had mixed experiences with eBay.

Not half. While he's engrossed and hidden away in my study somebody has to "entertain" her.

The things I do for a mate!!!

eBay offers excellent protection for buyers. Disputes often favour the buyer without giving the seller any opportunity to defend themselves. Remember the sellers are anyone so use a bit of common sense when buying.

However, as others have said, I wouldn't have it happening in my name. Plus when she finds out, which she will, he'll blame you anyway. Why to people insist on having all this tat anyway?

Good for you for being a true friend, but as the users above me said... maybe you have to draw the line. Maybe you should ask him to stop, because it's for the best, it's for his good. If you have to hide something from your wife, then it doesn't really look too good.
But if you still want to help him out, then good luck!
