    Ever seen the website for p-p-p-powerbook?

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    Basically, anything is a scam where they offer you extra money, and your description of the item is in () where they automatically added it from a list of items of other people to be scammed.

    Also notice they want you to act when you recieve payment, not when the check clears. that is because their check will never clear, but by that time they hope you've given them the "extra" money.
    total scam.

    There's are links to descriptions of all scams at the top of the classifieds page.

    I want to get someone to mail me their fake cashier's check and then mail them a box of dog sh!t. That would rule. Fockers.
    Back of the camera, back of the pack.

    Oh yeah, forgot about that

    Good idea with mailing the scammers feces though. Maybe vomit...

    ask them to send the check first then don't get back to them
