    I'm trying my first official black hat technique today and am proud to say I learned it HERE! Woot :)

    So I did the fake Craigslist thing where the buyer is redirected to Amazon, but I did NOT post any Amazon links on CL. Instead, I put a text link to the item in my email to a couple prospective buyers. Is it against the TOS to do this? And can they tell I'm doing it? I tried to follow the advice I saw on this forum but may have slipped up somewhere along the way since I'm really new to Amazon selling.

    I DID read Amazon's TOS just now, but they're not really clear on that (at least not that I can tell. It only said you can't do "paid" search placement or "redirecting" links, which doesn't sound like what I'm doing at all.)

    I'm new to all this but don't want to get my account cut off because I made a stupid mistake! Thanks for your patience with this n00b :)
