Ebay is a funny place
The words CAVEAT EMPTOR come from the latin. They mean "buyer beware". Basically, it means that you should assume that the other guy is gonna take advantage of you in a business deal and be careful.
Most scammers assume that there is some retard out there who will fall for their scam. This is why you get those emails from Nigerian Banks.
Currently on ebay you have-
Charles Manson Original Newspaper Articals- so, are you gonna buy something from somebody who cannot even spell what he is selling? COME ON he's got ZERO feedback. How about paying $4,900 for old newspapers which look like they are just the BUG's Helter Skelter novel, serialized. Maybe this nimrod meant $49.00. I don't know. But who the hell wantsmusty papers when you can get a used copy of the whole book for $2 at every used book store in the US.
Original Charlie Manson Booking Photo- I love the story. I love the arrogance. This will be worth MILLIONS some day. Uh huh. Her dad got it for her. Uh huh. The photo is extremely common. It is not the negative. It is worth $10. But don't offer her less than $3000. Brilliant.
Premium Charles Manson Domain Name - this is cool. Guy paid $30 but maybe you want to give him $3,000. That's hot.
