beware ebay

beware buying anything expensive on ebay. i was browsing ebay and found a great deal on a powerbook, which i followed up out of curiosity. it became obvious fairly quickly that the whole deal was a scam. it?s always the same thing: incredible price (one ought to be very suspicious simply because of this), but "only certain privileged bidders are allowed to bid". "send reseller an email to be placed on list". that?s where they try to convince you into doing something stupid. they will provide you with some obscure form of payment through western union... stay away! if a deal looks to good to be true. it is! if you can?t resist, discuss it with your friends, don?t simply decide something on your own. i?m fairly certain none of you need me to tell you this, but maybe there are few among us who are a little more "trusting".

all of the following are scams.
