That is a quality gesture.  I would find it hard to part with something like that

Another one has appeared with only 10% going to the hospital.
Someone maybe trying to pull a fast one on the back of a great cause

Ben Stokes called out a fake WC shirt & medal on his Instagram that was being sold on eBay.

Identical images and description as the original post... Definitely a low-life scammer! I've reported it and I hope everybody else does the same.

Well played, @jimmy23 and @A-Swing-And-A-Miss ! What an absolute belter that ebay seller is to try to profit from such an amazing gesture.

Also reported; absolute low life to do this. My wife is a nurse and it makes my blood boil seeing some scroat illegally milking the situation when there are decent people out there raising funds and doing their bit.

Rant over.

Sadly ebay seems to have no desire to clean up its platform to remove this sort of thing.  Unless there are prosecutions for fraud, this type of behaviour will continue

Well done everybody, the scam shirt listing has been removed from eBay. In these dark times it feels good knowing that together we ensured that a fraudster didn't benefit from the situation. I had a check and they don't seem to have relisted it, but if anybody does see it relisted please link it here so we can get that **** shut down.

Back to the original topic, fair play to Jos for this! I know that if I won the World Cup I'd frame the shirt I wore and never let anybody within 3 feet of it!
