How stupid are eBay buyers?

Filed under: Commentary,World Wide Web — Bob @ 8:09 pm

If you saw an item on eBay titled “$$ NEW IN BOX WII VIDEO GAME CONSOLE WHOLESALE LIST $$” that was listed for $99 USD would you buy one?

Likely you would if you are as smart as the average pet rock.

The seller (derek34786) posts big headlines such as “SAVE HUNDREDS OR THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS WITH THIS WHOLESALE LIST FOR WII VIDEO GAME CONSOLES”.

Here is the posting: don’t bother with this stupid offer.

The best part is reading the fine print towards the end of the listing. Statements such as “You are not getting what is pictured in the photo” and “Ignorance is not an excuse if you did not read or misread this auction” are strong indications of predatory behavior yet I suspect eBay will be powerless to stop such stupidity due to their own acceptable use policies.

As of 9pm there were nine bidders, with less than 10 minutes remaining. Idiots.
