    Hello guys.
    I was lurking around on ebay for quite some time and 6-7 days earlier I saw some guy selling refurbished Xbox one consoles for just $199. (Yes that's very cheap). I thought lets try something from this...
    I bought a domain & listed the xbox one at $250 on my domain & made it look like a professional offer page. I also clearly stated that the Item cannot be returned once bought & there's no guarantee.
    Then I ran a Facebook ad targeting everyone who had microsoft & xbox in their interests and ran it for few days.
    The ad's text stated like "Xbox One 500 GB for sale at just $250. Limited stocks. Order Now!"
    And then I ran it for three days. And to my surprise there were loads of hits and i got like 10 orders. I ordered from the ebay seller with the buyers addresses & he shipped them. And I made some nice cash out of it...

    $250 x 10 - $200 x 10
    $2500 - $2000
    $500 profit..

    An new xbox one 500GB is selling at $248 at walmart, and you are telling me someone would buy it from you at $250?

    If you are really doing this, I wish you the best of luck. All it takes are for your buyers to raise chargebacks and your money will be as gone as this stupid method.

    Hello guys.
    I was lurking around on ebay for quite some time and 6-7 days earlier I saw some guy selling refurbished McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle for just $27 million. (Yes that's very cheap). I thought lets try something from this...
    I bought a domain & listed the one F-15 Eagle at $27.7 million on my domain & made it look like a professional offer page. I also clearly stated that the Item cannot be returned once bought & there's no guarantee.
    Then I ran a Facebook ad targeting everyone who had Pentagon & United States Air Force in their interests and ran it for few days.
    The ad's text stated like "McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle with 4× AIM-7 Sparrow, 4× AIM-9 Sidewinder, 8× AIM-120 AMRAAM for sale at just $27.7 million. Limited stocks. Order Now!"
    And then I ran it for three days. And to my surprise there were loads of hits and i got like 10 orders from Israeli Air Force I ordered from the ebay seller with the buyers addresses & he shipped them. And I made some nice cash out of it...

    $27.7 million x 10 - $27 million x 10
    $277 000 000 - $270 000 000
    $70 000 00 profit..
