    I don't trust him. He uses AOL.


    Yeah, I bought something for $10 a while back that said you could get free electronics and stuff. All you supposedly had to do was fake being part of a retail business and ask these big foreign companies to send you a free sample of their product (plasma TV, computer components, etc) for your approval before you bought a thousand or so of their products. It supposedly only costed you the shipping which sometimes was free, and the time to write the emails.

    The guy seemed nice enough to give me help over email. Never worked for me though.

    I think his ad price is a joke just to get attention. The money making is a scam..

    By the time we could manage to get a pool up and running on when ebay shuts this down, it will be shut down.

    So incredibly silly.....

    I'm wondering how much it cost this fellow to list this auction with that high of a starting bid? Listing fees can never be refunded? or can they be?

    Is this charades? It don't SOUND like a pyramid scheme, it IS a pyramid scheme!

    Besides, what rhymes with 'pyramid scheme' except like 'cheer amid dream'? :D

    and 'cheer amid dream' doesn't make sense anyway

    OK, but you'll need to fork over $15,000 in up-front legal fees to get the transaction finished on this end.

    I can't believe it!

    OMG OMG OMG!!! :eek:
    I e-mailed the guy, IM'd him, and he assured me it was all safe, so I gave him quite a bit of money, because he told me the more I gave, the more I would make. Well, the F&$@ER TOOK MY MONEY!!! I sent him the money, and when I asked him what to do next, I got no reply! OMG What am I going to do?!?!!??!?!

    :D :D :D

    If you haven't gotten it yet, then don't ask...

    And if your story relates to the above text, just go away...


    You have to be a complete retard to fall for something like this. :rolleyes:

    I fell for it, but only lost $10. And besides, I was on summer vacation from school and was very bored. Trying to work his scheme kept me occupied.

    The insertion fee is $3.30 for all items $200 and above...So no breaking the bank for him, just a simple investment into his scam.
