The most annoying one is items listed on eBay UK as 'located in the UK' only to find buried in the description that it's actually sent from China. So at best it's going to take weeks to arrive, at worst with a hefty customs charge. I always report listings that do this.

My pet hate is people who do local collection only and just put London. Hmm, it's a pretty big place lol.

Indeed central London is no good for me either but all of south East is fine so I have to always ask, I've found a fair few bargains that way...
