eBay: Someone's getting taken for a ride...

Here's the auction...

Here's the funny image:



It's going for around $145... I wonder if the bidder knows it broken... it retails for anywhere from $200-$170.

Look at the complaint in the high bidder's rating:

Complaint : FAILS TO READ ITEM DESCRIPTION,INSISTS ON RETURNING ITEMS HE MISTAKENLY BIDS ON!
Response by ftosh - I did read the item des, He never said no return accepted, Gives fake guarantees



I wonder if the disclaimer was put in a graphic for people who turn graphics off or otherwise have a hard time with them.

I'm guessing you're right about this...especially after reading the description and the image disclaimer

It ships in the original box complete with all original accessories, including the owner's manual, driver CD, video hookup cables for TV-out feature, and a DVI-to-VGA adapter, allowing the simulatanous use of two VGA monitors.

Looks like this guy hijacked someone else's banner image, and they decided to change it on him. Maybe he'll host his own pictures next time...

From his listing:

On Aug-21-03 at 21:26:14 PDT, seller added the following information:

=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
IMPORTANT!!!
=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
The image above was changed, but NOT BY ME. The image IS NOT an accurate description of the radeon 8500 you are bidding on. This card IS NOT broken, it IS in its original box and includes all the accessories.
I used someone elses image to post my auction and he thought it would be funny to sabotage my listing. You can trust me, I have 100% feedback. Thanks.
