Old news is no news

ebaypaypalblog reported the opening of Paypal’s new UK office and a reduction in the withdrawl fee for amounts under £50, quoting a Paypal spokesperson’s statement that this would increase trust and comfort for UK buyers. Such a great story was picked up by both auctionforums.org and eBayyer (lacking permalinks, scroll down to 5th January post, identical to source). The only problem? The story actually dates from October 2003. Oops :-)
