If you don't I can see you ending up with a neg and a chargeback.

You're far better off selling them to one of the reputable online companies.

That depends a lot on the handset.
We had a whole bunch of Nokia 6300s to shift and got �39 each from Mazuma
Mobile , compared to about �50 as a normal final price on Ebay.
It just wouldn't be worth the hassle of trying to list 60 individual phones
for the potential couple of quid each extra you'd get after fees.

We also had a few Nokia E71 smartphones - the best I could get from any
online buyer was �79 , but on ebay they will fetch twice that in good
condition.

I sold the same phone on eBay but unlike the seller I had bought it from, I
described it accurately and clearly indicated that the phone was in worn and
heavily-used condition. I received a positive from my buyer and I managed
to sell it for only slightly less than I had previously paid for it.

Even if the photo in the listings shows it had no scratches, proving he
did the damage to try and screw me for a new cover ?
