This reminds me of the guy who sold that empty Playstation box. Only this time, the seller comes out and actually says, "This is an empty box, there is no XBOX inside." Twice. Yet someone still paid $366 for it.

The first guy who sold the PS2 box was vague and deceptive. This guy was very up front about what was being sold, and the people who bid $300 on this deserve to be parted with their money. I despised the first guy, I envy the second.

He's got another one up for sale as well.
Sure he's upfront about it, but it's still kind of sleazy, even if the bidders are as dumb as rocks.

I've got an empty pack of Cigerettes for sale. You pay $10.00 plus $4.00 shipping and handling. These are an ordinary pack of Marlboro Ultra-Light 100s (oops, sorry I meant to add the unnessassary ' in 100s), I mean 100's... box. I smoked 'em, you keep the box! All this for only $10.00!!! plus $4.00 shipping and handling.
Now this is a deal! Any takers?

The worst part about it is that since Ebay has become this global scum market- this type of thing doesn't matter. The bidder doesn't see it as her responsibility to actually READ the description because she knows Ebay will not make her follow through on the deal.
So she'll get a negative feedback- looks to me like she's a frequent seller so he's already got 120, who cares if one person says she's a moron.
I think Ebay should suspend anyone who just flat out refuses to read the description and then whines about what they're getting.

I love that- "My daughter was sick so I didn't have time to read the whole thing"! If my cat ever gets sick I guess I'll go bid on stuff without reading about it first!

If someone's dumb enough to make the bid, and the item is clearly marked, it's his fault for being a moron.

There sure are some stupid people out there!!
What's kind of funny is the fact that the seller upped his shipping price for the box, from $7 to $15. Hmmm...must be one heavy empty box!!
