And idiots still fall for it, so in my opinion, they didn't deserve the money they lost on the auction in the first place.

these are not new, you pay the auctioneer and they send you useless info about how to obtain these products

never works

Ebay needs to be chained and flogged for allowing junk auctions like this one.
But they make $ off the listings so they don't care about anything other than that.

I preffer the auction they had a few months ago for nothing. Literally. And it wasn't a secret either. It said in big, bold letters, "You are bidding on nothing. There are no shipping costs because it costs nothing to ship nothing. I have no pictures because again, how do you take a picture of nothing. If you win this auction, you will get NOTHING."

It sold for $15.

When searching on ebay, always put in "-(info)" in so that no items with info in the title get returned.
