Topics I've Started

Too good to be true? The times it all worked out great.

24 October 2017 - 11:07 AM

I'd like to hear some stories or even some bragging on a deals you took a chance on despite them appearing too good to be true. Where you came out on top through either critical thinking or dumb luck.


While hunting for a high capacity micro sd card on ebay I ran in to hundreds of obvious fakes with a few peppered in that look legit. Taking a chance on many and had to have them returned. One day a used listing came up. He actually said he had used the cards on a trip and was now selling. Figured chances are good its real so I bid $25 on a 256gb micro sd. I kept a $95 bid ready to snipe at the last 5 seconds. Only no other bid ever came. It sold for $22 shipped. I figured it must have obvious bootleg indications I am not familiar with. Why else did none of the other bidders try? Guy shipped it and I tested it. Legit card full capacity and fast. $22 for a $150 retail card.

The infestation of fake cards makes it great for finding those needle in a haystack deals. Used to drive the price of anime boxes way down.


That wasn't very exciting but tell us all some of your incredible finds from too good to be true sources.
