Re: [DML] Re: Interesting (strange) Eay auction

We all agree this auction was a scam, but take a look at this auction:

This was the original auction of the REAL car.  Notice the photo of the 
VIN plate...look familiar?  All they did was change a "1" to a "0".  I 
duplicated this effect in Photoshop in about a minute.  Really makes 
you wonder about photos in other auctions.

The bottom line: buyer beware!  Give them the check when they hand you 
the keys.  Inspect it yourself, or have someone you trust do it.

The only question I have now is: if this is clearly a scam, why is the 
auction still listed on eBay (as of 4PM CST Saturday)?!?
