My girl insisted I do a BIN on the following item, and I cannot blame her.

Episode 2 Cereal Press Kit

Dude, that cereal press kit is awesome!  I think that was an incredible find, especially since it's all about Jango for ya!  Your girl is very smart!

An interesting report I found on CNN about eBay scammers. It's a 2 pager.

eBay's Worst Nightmare

I like this part on page 2 of the report.

Chesnut says that within the past year eBay has started to take a more active approach to fraud. Instead of waiting for information to be brought to it by angry users, eBay's fraud department now does its own investigations. Last year Chesnut beefed up his team and created software to do things like monitor auction listings and catch the duplication of contact information. "At this point there's probably more people we suspend on our own than from alerts from the community or law enforcement," he says.

This is a prime example of one I am working on right now over at RS.

I have been taken twice on ebay and have yet to get any results from ebay at all. Also paypal was no help and actually rude when I called them. I have been staying away for many reasons and now I prefer to deal with fellow collectors on the boards.  I really have changed my opinion on ebay. When I first started using them I thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread now unfortuatly with the scammers and rude people I have become disenchanted with the whole thing. I still use it at times but I am alot more picky when it comes to sellers feedback.

Offended?  Definitely not.  Worried about the state of America?  Most definitely.  Don't get me wrong, I have a foul mouth (but I prefer the more elegant four letter word that ends in u-c-k  ;)), but to describe something so inane as a Star Wars figure as a, quote "bitch" is just wrong.

Now maybe your're right Cory and this is that tool Fred Durst's influence on the youth of America (shutter) or maybe its something else.  Either way, be afraid.  Be very afraid.
