Evil ebayers'

Unread postby Shtoink » Sat Mar 08, 2003 8:31 pm

This is one of the most horrible things you can find on ebay...

Pure Evil!

This is the kind of thing I wish could be irradicated from ebay. I can't stnd these rediculous claims.
There is a site from which you can purchase an e-Book for 150$. After purchasing this e-Book, you are placed into a matrix system for an Apple Power Mac G4. This means that it may take anywhere from 5 days to 5 months (an estimate) to get your product. However, there is no other catch, no other fees to be paid, and no other obligation to be made by you.

Yeah, what ever!

Sorry, I saw this and got fired up...

5 days to 5 months to get my $150 G4 huh...
What's that depend on, how long it takes them to steal one and ship it to me?

Only took him 11 weeks (just under 3 months) to get a 17" LCD he got...
Wow, I dunno, if I was going to buy something, I would rather have it now, or in a week, not months. Also, because of this claim that it can take a while, who do you complain to calling it a scam, they just say they told you it'd take a while and suddenly you have no legal resources...

Well, it is legal (in Ebay and offical terms) to post these scams. Most people are smart enough not to waste their money, but I've know a few people who did take a chance and got burned. Used Mac hardware is way over priced as far as I'm concerned; might as well drop the loot and get the good stuff (new).

I know this sort of thing shows up all the time on eBay, but here's one that's SGI related:

Worse evils exist. I'm sure you've seen the Windows NT MIPS ports that got put in some Indigo 2s. And even more evil, the SGI t-shirt that says "Because NT is too important to trust to Intel" Ahhhhh! http://userpages.umbc.edu/~smyth1/stran ... weater.jpg
