Ebay Scam

Last night I’m sitting in my basement flippin channels between the Maple Leafs and the Toronto Raptors. The Leafs took it to the Florida Panthers and the Raps were in a real tight one but came out on the losing end once again. But while I was sitting there cheering on my two favorite teams I was thinking about what I was going to bust out in the blog today. I am a free spirited individual and I love to explore a variety of avenues in life and I’m gonna go on a rant here about these people that just live their lives to steal or to scam others.

A couple of weeks back a couple of buddies and myself were looking into getting some new Cell Phones and we had noticed that Nokia was coming out with this sick new phone and we somehow wanted to get our hands on it. But, there was one problem, they are not yet available. So we looked around and found a few places that supposedly had a ton of them. These places that said they had them were either in China, Nigeria, and Romania. The phones are going to retail at and around $1500 dollars. We found a couple of companies that were selling them in units and we found them on Ebay. We gave a couple of companies a call to see what the deal was. This one guy we talked to was unbelievable he was saying he was actually looking for guys in Canada to sell his products and all kinds of nonsense. He sounded so legit and convincing. We were real close to hooking something up with this guy but we wanted to do some research on it first. On his Ebay listing it said if you want to buy it now don’t hit the buy it now button contact me directly. This was kind of odd so we checked into this and we found a ton of stuff on people who have been scammed not necessarily by this guy but by the same design. They tell you they can’t accept Pay Pal or anything like that but you have to wire your money via Western Union. Apparently, Romania and Nigeria are notorious for these types of scams so just be careful if you are purchasing something off of ebay or other sites from these countries. There are articles all over Google about this type of thing.

I’m bringing this to your attention because these people are making a living off ripping us off. This drives me absolutely crazy! You know what I understand that you might live in a country where the poverty levels are real bad and I feel sorry for them for that. But, this is a big But I have absolutely no tolerance for people who make a living off screwing other people. There are a lot of ways people can make a living and this is not one of them. I have absolutely no idea how people can wake up and look themselves in the mirror everyday and be happy with what they are doing. I say fuck these people and if you come across one of these scammers lets nail these son of a bitches.

Wow I got real heated thinking of this again. What made me think about it was I was watching the news last night and they were talking about the
Xbox 360 and how there has been some scams of late on these new systems and it got me all fired up. I still can’t believe people can do this to others, it truly boggles my mind.

So I was sitting in my basement watching the games and at the same time my Raptors just lost and I was a little pissed at that and I had these fucking idiots on my mind. Needless to say I was getting steamed so I thought it’s time to take some of my frustrations out on party poker. Yeah that’s right its time for a bloody Poker Party and that was probably a mistake. I started playing and I really was not concentrating at all and I proceeded to make a few bad calls and it cost me. I knew I wasn’t in the right mind set to play as I was very agitated. I am an emotional dude and I get real annoyed at certain things. But, people know that if I get mad something must be up. I am real laid back with pretty much everything but I can get fired up! Oh yeah, I lost playing poker last night and that didn’t help anything. Oh well, can’t win em all.

Don't forget to check out my blog tomorrow as it is going to be the first installment of Whartz Up Wednesdays. This feature is going to be all about crazy videos and photos. There will definitely be some laughs in these posts.

My buddy bought 5 xbox 360s when they first came out. I tried to get one from him but he charged me a mark up price...haha. He's an ebay entrepenaur, rip-off specialist.
