    He sends you an info letter that tells you how to get companies to send you products for free because you're going to review them for your internet review site. But that stopped working like four years ago, so now it's a scam.

    ooh..ebay fraud...how about this "Xbox box!!" goes on to list all the games that it COULD come with. Some stupid person buys it for the same amount as a realy xbox. Or "PC Tower" lists compatable hardware...though it comes with none.

    I don't knopw of any other, except shill bidding, which is when the seller has people he know bid it up real high so everyone on eBay looks at it and says 'wow, that must be a good seller!' and then the selller never ships it. THey're usually in romania.

    ya, it's always some obscure seller. Usually it's best not to buy internationally.
