  • I hate to see people by the eBay packages. It's easy enough to learn on your own and eBay will help you along the way. They even have online seminars.

  • Yeah, so tired of the darn guy saying Buy my product. Bet he's the only one to get rich.

  • The guy who sells books on how to get free money from the government and how to beat the banks really irks me. This one isn't eBay but I am surprised he has not tried it yet.

    He is being interviewed my well endowed young ladies and on this last one, they seem to have trouble keeping their clothes on. Duh, one of the well used tricks of magicians and shysters is to divert your attention.

    At least with magicians you are there to be entertained. The others are just there to rob you.

    In all fairness to the general public, eBay can be a little intimidating with all their links and policies. Even to the experienced at times, but they have a wealth of information, forums and specialty groups that can help.

    When we started selling a collection of teddy bears, we subscribed to several free discussion groups on bear collecting, specialty bears, bear making etc. All within eBay.

    There is a whole community of folks on there that have nothing to do with eBay at all!

    There are many who still prefer a live class and live interaction with the instructors. eBay used to come out and have group classes in key cities, but they have now turned that over to a group of Education Specialists who they have taught and who they require to teach THEIR program.

    These folks are not there to sell you other packages or get rich plans. They might recover their costs for a workbook, but other than that, they should stay to the eBay approved format.

    If they are not Education Specialists, taught by eBay, expect some other sales pitch. In most cases, if they are giving away free this and free that, it is not a "meat & potatoes" course, just a hook to bring you in.

    Education Specialist prices are usually the same as eBay used to charge and many times lower. Some will also do one-on-one tutoring. Here is the eBay link to search for those instructors in your area using town & state or zip code. http://www.poweru.net/ebay/student/searchIndex.asp

    The pages often give a bio on the person, a feedback system similar to eBay sellers and contact info. From there you can check out students comments, and even visit their own sales site to see if they are an active seller in addition to teacher.
