    This one is for all of you that hate scalpers!!!

    I'm not sure how much a few items cost him & I didn't figure in shipping costs. I added up retail price + Tennessee sales tax which is close to 10%. The total I came up with was over $2500.00.

    I know this guy personally, Wal-Mart employee that buys cases from the back before they ever hit the floor. He calls himself "a natural born salesman" but he usually buys high & sells low. Through the grapevine, I pretty much know what he paid for each item.

    If you don't want that Encore Megs, hit me up. I'd gladly buy it.

    This is proof to all scalpers... You actually lose money doing what you do.

    Always liking to see both sides represented, STUPID scalpers lose, smart scalpers come out on top because like it or not the smart scalper is a shrewd business man ....and then there are some who are just plain lucky. Research, research research thats the key to making money as a scalper.

    I didn't win the auction, I'm just laughing at it.


    Also, there's no telling how much gas he wasted. Gotta add gas price to the grand total. He definitely lost money on this one!

    The total of all that stuff + tax + shipping + wasted gas cost the seller over $2500.00. The buyer got a great deal & now he can turn around & resell anything he doesn't want. If he resells some of that stuff in seperate auctions he could get a lot of his money back. That's what I would do if I won.
