List Rules Vote up the scams that are so good they deserve a bid.

Internet reseller eBay is one of the greatest tests of your faith in humanity. Every time you buy or sell something on eBay, you're taking a huge risk. Will the buyer pay on time? Will they ship the item on time? Will you receive what you actually ordered? Will the seller package the item safely so it's not damaged? Will you be the victim of a frustrating, yet funny, Internet grift?

These are stories of eBay scams that people shared online, and some of them are so good, you kinda have to respect them. These are funny eBay stories that as hard as you try, you can't stop yourself from laughing. While these online louts should have to do hard time, you can't help but appreciate the genius behind some of these tricksters.
