If you don't want to hear about anything eBay, just delete now, or forever hold your peace. 'Nuff said....

Here's one that looks pretty typical. Hasn't this one been well 'round the ring of scammers already? Some educational value here, IMO. Watch out for these kinds of crooks. Multiple alarm bells on this one. Spot them all, win the contest. The Grand Prize is keeping your money.


Note the photo's location. Hmmm.... Red *flag.* New member since today, zero feedback, description makes no sense. Yeah, sounds like a great deal. Not. Maybe a scam-school dropout? I'll report it to eBay....
