Spam + Ebay = SPAY

By the time you read this post, the advert for a ‘Picture of Heart with an attached pikture of DESKTOP PC’ will have disappeared from Ebay.co.uk.

The ‘please-I-am-dying-send-money’ kind of scam has been long restricted to email inboxes and the fact that it is quickly going to Ebay means either that email filters are working very well indeed or that people buying on Ebay are more gullible than those reading emails; which, of course, doesn’t make much sense.

For posterity, you can see the picture here.
