    So.... my wife just told me about her mom's new "venture"...

    It might be helpful to SOMEONE on here... but I personally don't give a shit about it...

    Anyways...
    I guess this is how the story went :

    -Debbie searches around Garage sales & eBay & iOffer every day..
    -on the websites, she searches for misspelled stuff, like "glod, golld, goled, neklace, neckklace, neclace, necklase, necklas"....etc
    -she finds old ass gold necklaces, rings, buys the shit in bulk from eBay/iOffer...etc, pays like $2 a ring for all this old ass shit... because she's the only bidder
    -after she gets all the stuff in the mail... she has it checked to make sure it's real gold...
    -sends it in to "cash4gold" or one of those places

    AND, she just got a fucking $1900 something check this month from all this gold (she spent about $300-$400 on it... but still... THATS HELLA PROFIT!!!

    Just thought it was funny... so instead of blogging about it, I'm telling BHW :D.....

    F|_|CK cash for gold. Polish it up and resell to jewelers or melt it down and hold it. The money you get at cash4gold is extremley low in comparison to what the gold is really worth... Melt it all done into a gold brick and make some insane cash.

    ... I'm just waiting for people to start raiding mailboxes for those envelopes that people are sending out. [WARNING HIGHLY ILLEGAL - DO NOT DO - I DO NOT CONDONE]

    How much time does she put into that $1900? And how often is she able to cash in for that much?

    BTW, I own a site that does eBay misspellings but it got screwed up with eBay's last changes. Guess I should update it. :(

    Haha, that's awesome! I did a search for "glod" and found some of those mp4 ipod lookalikes going for less than 2 dollars and with free shipping... not really what I was looking for but if I could pick one up for that cheap then I'd be stupid not to :p

    Yeah, but people don't search for "gold MP4 players", so they're stilling getting plenty of hits from people just searching for mp3/4 players. For example, if you were selling a blue iPod nano but in your title said, "Buel iPod Nano", people would still find your auction by searching for iPod Nano or just iPod. If you misspelled iPod however, all of a sudden you would lose a ton of traffic. Basically what I am saying is it is all about the main keywords.

    I looked at the guy's feedback and he never sells them for more than $20-30 anyway, I think it's just junk.

    That's actually a great idea! I just read an article in my local newspaper this morning. People are hosting HOME PARTIES for gold. Basically a host goes to someone's home, they invite a ton of friends, they all bring there unwanted jewels and the host buys it all for I am sure a fraction of what its worth... no need to do any searches for it, the come to you. I am sure the hosts are making a killing!
