A lot of stuff is listed on eBay that you can get for free. Many people just automatically think if it is on eBay it is the cheapest price.

Much stuff on eBay that is just sale of information is also a scam. For example, there is/was a seller that listed information on how to get a whole bunch of Microsoft Development software for $400. Of course, what they didn't tell you what they were doing. Of course, they were selling you information about a MS start up ISV business package that MS made available.

There are other people that "sell" you information on how to get consumer electronics for free. "It really works" blah blah. Basically you are buying a word document that tells you to set up a blog and post reviews for consumer electronics then start emailing every CE place out there to send you review devices. Although many CE places that send our review units want them back... many also let you keep them.

eBay while originally meant as an online garage sale site... has turned into fertile ground to separate noobs from their money.
