oh come on would ya

ok,, i was browsing around on that big auction site we are forbidden to discuss on here ,where so many of us actually do looka round on and buy from on occassion,,but deny deny deny all day long..i came across this listing for an ELECTRONIC super charger that works off your cars battery,(that looks like some kind of heater/ac blower motor) that so GREAT and Wonderful and can blow up to 3 psi (doesnt look to be bigger then a leaf blower motor) hell im trying to save up thousands for one and they got the magic machine for less then a hundred bucks.I mean who dreamt up this crap,,and wouldnt an electric motor to blow 3 psi have to be a lil big for under the hood and then to have it operate off your car battery? How do people get away with selling and advertising such BULLSHIT !! isnt it..or shouldnt it be a frikin crime? when will it ever end? damn ! and do they just let you advertise and sell on that site with no idea of the products and claims people make,,shouldnt they have some kinda responcibility to the consumer (who actually is the reason they have a business anyway) and monitor the crap people push on there,,,its gettin outta hand like the mass produced one size fits all universal mega power aftermarket mania with parts that snap on like lego blocks and can blast ya to the moon,,grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr it crazy...anyways thanks for letting me rant and blow off,,,have a great day fellow focians. and remember if you can count the white lines .your still going tooo slow..

as long as they have a product and come thru with the shipping they can sell it on ebay, even it it doesent work right or the way its described.

for the most part its all scams, but there are some nice things on there too, somethings you cant find anymore, and good deals on SOME stuff.

I remember a story on TV about a year ago about this guy who sold a "Ghost Detector" on eBay. This detector amounted to, as I recall, a shoe box, some tin foil and an LED lamp. And he sold it for some stupid amount of money, well in excess of $100.

Shoe box. Tin foil. Light.

100$+

I'll just let that sink in.

Back when the PS3 came out I seen an auction for a real PS3 picture! It was selling for nearly 400 bucks until they found it and canceled the auction. Its great stuff.
