Unbelieveable what people will 'sell'. Funny though, they don't show a picture of what they're selling nor what the contraption looks like. But, people will buy it.....that's the sad part.

Re: Haha funny Ebay scam?

Interesting.

$6.99 (for auction) + $5.99 (for shipping) + $4.50 (miscalaneous charge) + $0.95 (insurance)

$18.43 for that BS.

hahhaha... I hope you are kidding.

All of those 'Feedbacks' link to fictional objects. The feedback ID's are real, but he has someway fanagled the feedback system.

My favourite line is, 'Bid with 200% confidance'

Following his link to his FAQ (feq.html) he has a final word of truth...

Itís a 7 X 10 inch light weight lens. Its very powerful high technology lens which canít be found anywhere.'

yeah, where is he, apparatantly some other Aussie has a higher post count than him, that would have been unheard of a few weeks ago although I'm sure he will take care of that when he gets back

The 'cut and paste' he added to his ad doesnt work properly, but checkout his REAL feedback and comments - feedback.

Re: Haha funny Ebay scam?

Yeah yeah, just checked it out - can sort of imagine ho wit works, but the pic would need to be flipped horizontally, and you would need a REALLY dark room, coz your TV set is the weakest projection bulb you have ever seen. The other thing is, the picture would look like crap - the lines on the TV screen making up the pics would be made so large that it would look like your TV set used 1980's game console technology. But hey, for $7, you get what you pay for...
