    $9.99 i-pod ebay scam

    Has anybody seen these before? is it a scam? Looking at their feedback, nobody has actually said they got an i-pod

    Do you want to pay $9.99 for an envelope? That is what you are doing. It says it clearly on his auction page. It is just that he has the possibility of putting ipod nano in one of those enevelopes. Even though he says this is not a lottery, it basically is. I would report this auction to ebay.

    How is this a bloody scam?

    He makes it clear that he is not selling you an actual I-POD, therefore, there is nothing to report, and if anyone does not read the clearly worded ad, then that is there doing.

    Know what, some people, the terminally stupid, and the greedy, they almost bloody deserve to be scammed.

    What makes it a scam is that he lists the product on ebay as an ipod, and not an enevelope. Nobody would pay near $10 for an enevelope. This, is for all intents and purposes, a lottery and does violate ebay's rules.

    Notwithstanding, for anyone to think that they are getting an I Pod, when he makes it clear that they are not, well, they would have to be a little slow, huh..?
