i think they cancel it straight away when you have the word modded or chipped in there.

seen quite a few unmodded not getting pulled over the last week or two (infact i bought one today)

doubt it mate.

I'd say worst case scenario you'll get your auction pulled. Theres a million and one reasons why someone could have a chipped box up for sale. Just don't be encouraging people to engage in theft of service in your auction details and make the chipped references very subtle.

ok all the peeps in this thread - you need to be aware of a few facts.

DW is not here to enable you to modify boxes and sell them on ebay. THIS IS TRADING it is against forum rules. It doesn't matter how many pairs of shoes you need, helping a fellow member is one thing. Selling [email protected]@kin modded boxes on ebay is quite another.
It may also bring this site into disrepute!!!

Sorry , just had to ask the question. I do realise that the forum is not for this , but curiosity killed the cat right ?? Apologies. Honest.
So I take it the answer to my question is 'you get nicked ?'

sorry guys:( did not intend to condone the selling of modded boxes on fleebay for a profit!
I may self am thinking of getting a dbox to replace the pace up stairs ( after probs with au) and i was thinking of selling the pace on ebay! not to make a profit but to get back some of the money i spent buying it on ebay in the first place then i could put this towards the dbox.
but i concider myself well and truly : spank :

Your asking for trouble, firstly you do not and can not own a cable box whatever circumstances you obtained it, it allways belongs to the CC's.
If you sell it on Fleabay you are in fact trying to sell something you dont own and the auction will get pulled.
I know of a guy that used to mod boxes and sell them on Fleabay when digital cable first came out he made over £30,000, sounds great but he had a knock on the door one day only to find a rep from F.A.C.T and mr plod standing there.
They took his car and his house and banged him up for three years, i would think twice about your question mate.

I do agree with you but some time ago jimmyq put a post on here saying the police had sold ntl boxes at auction ! ie stolen property never claimed !

soz jimmyq if it wasnt you that said about but am sure it was

so if the polce can sell them why cant others ? also you should not sell chipped boxes for a profit
