Default Ripoff???

One of my friends, who is really into computers, told me that he bought a $500 for less than $100 on a website that, I think, if I remember correctly, is something called a 'matrix'. I'm not sure if that was what it was called.

Anyhow, he says that what they do is, for every 10 people that buy the camera for the low price, they send one to the person on the top of the list. In other words, its basically like a long waiting list...

The incredibly low price would make a very nervous buy, but I was wondering if anyone had bought a camera this way.

This is a varation of the pymarid scheme. It is a con and only a few would benefit from the others sacrifice. In most states, this type of scam is against the law. STAY AWAY from this scan.
