    I know I can't sell them on here and I can't sell them on ebay, but,

    Is there anywhere I can sell cigarettes online?

    Before you think I'm a dodgy dealer, I've only got 200, not 2,000,000 :D Bought my pal 200 Marlboros while I was on holiday for a christmas gift but hes packed them in as his new years resolution, so I'm stuck with them!

    Is it illegal/banned everywhere? I don't fancy selling them down the local pub, too many shady characters!

    Give it a couple of weeks and he'll back on them again :)

    And no, you can't legally sell them anywhere because you have paid no duty or VAT.

    Why do you state that? If bought within the EU the relevant taxes have been paid, albeit not to the UK treasury.
    That said, they still can't be resold, as you have pointed out.

    If its only 200 I would just cut my losses and try and sell them down the pub or to a mate/family member etc. It shouldn't b to hard to shift them on really. I'm sure if you ask around someone will have them!

    I bought them in Dubai, so I paid the duty on them at Dubai's extortionate percentage, zero :D

    May be a pub job... got a couple of pals who get the odd packet when there drunk, could trade them for a beer token :)

    go to the local corner shop and ask if he wants to swap them for something you'll find useful. So long as you take less than what you paid, you havn't traded (ie sold) for gain. Probably work better if its a licenced shop though, the amount of booze that gets sold in them now without necessarily being legit is silly...lol, I doubt he'll mind passing on a pack of foreign fags...lol

    Here's a tip, next time, get the person to pay up front, then if you come back and find out they've given up, its their loss and problem as to what to do with them...lol
