Online auction houses have taken the dubious honor of generating the most fraud cases on the Internet, according to a survey taken by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

I am really tired of this propaganda crap. Any seller who sells on the Internet auction market knows that the real fraud that needs investigation is BUYER FRAUD. How many cases of that do you think happen every day to innocent sellers trying to make a living on these sites? Way too much. And I don't doubt for a minute that the information put out by this ridiculously WRONG article is generated by Ebay and such auction communities who wish to keep the TRUTH about what really goes on on those sites private. They need the dead-beat bidders to increase shares. They don't care if the buyers don't pay the sellers. Ebay even ran a program once offering buyer points to people who would just come and bid. They didn't have to legally honor their bids, which is a crime. GET REAL AMERICA AND STOP LISTENING TO THE PRESS. It is all PAID FOR and you are listening to NOTHING but propaganda MONEY speaking. NO TRUTH. THERE IS NO FREEDOM IN AMERICA ANY MORE.

Waaa! I am reading an article that is 18 months old and assuming that it was written yesterday.. Waaa! Life doesn't treat me the way I want it to, so I am going to cry about some amorphous conspiracy that is designed to keep me down. Waaa! I wish that I had enough self-esteem to do more than cry about nonsense.
Poor fellow, for only $19.95 you can enroll in my very special class, "I can change my life if I stop whining and start taking responsibility." Of course the initial $19.95 is only good for the introduction to this course. Truly interested students all enroll in my boot camp in which they receive enlightenment instruction and proven techniques that they can apply to their lives immediately. The cost for one week is based on a sliding scale equivalent to one week of what they would have earned at their normal job. For more details see my website:
