Turquoise Decepticons on TV
« on: May 06, 2016, 03:15:57 PM »

Not a particularly pleasant topic but people need to be aware of issues in the marketplace. There isn't a set forum for posts like this so this is my best guess. Note: Stay tuned for the ending, it's arguably the best part.

Enjoy!

I love the sheer quantity of fonts used in one ad.

That's a red flag all by itself.

I rock hunt in the Antelope/Ashwood area of the John Day river basin in Oregon. 90% of what I post is from this area, from private property where I have permission to hike and collect. The material I find is for personal use only, I do not have landowner permission to sell. Thanks for understanding!

It seems worse to me when it's on television since they are hitting many more people in one of these episodes. Also I think people nowadays are conditioned to a certain extent to not trust eBay auctions. There are so many of these auctions it appears eBay either can't or won't keep up with them. Plus if you are on television I'm guessing there are more rules and monitoring by the FCC.
