    A couple years ago, there was a nursing student on eBay selling home-baked cookies, fudge etc. She did get bidders.

    Hey can't blame 'em for trying. I have been desperate enough to think of something like this before, but I'd never go through with it. It just seems so shady. I saw on a talk show one time there was an ex-stripper going to nursing school and she had a website where people could send her donations, at the time she had recieved like $5,000 so far for her education. Ah well to each their own.

    If this is legit...
    The first lady has three semesters left! Heck, she might as well just come out and say she needs someone to pay for her entire college education! I feel bad for the people that actually place a bid because it seems like a huge scam to me. If it's not then I'm wrong...but I doubt I'm wrong. You just can't trust anybody or anything anymore. How sad.

    How is 3 semesters her entire education? Are you guys in some kind of accelerated program?

    update: just saw shes in a 1 yr program.

    Unbelievable the one with the picture should consider a reading/spelling class before attending school. The errors in her ad don't exactly give one faith that she could excel as a atudent.

    Crazy! I think they should consider filling out the FAFSA!

    WOW....LMAO! Why didn't I think of this....I could have more Ebay spending money! I can just say, if it's legit, I hope they get help, if not, I hope they don't get a dime!

    ...adding a picture? Does she think glamour will get her money? Might as well sell dirty socks to support her education......other people sell them! lmao

    Hope both NEVER make it. I wouldn't want either to be my nurse. NO scruples.

    Meeeooowwwww

    Maybe both are in serious need of help and encouragement

    I know at least one nurse who worked her way through nursing school as a stripper

    I love that the first auction the WINNING bidder has to pay $2.00 in shipping. Doesn't a first class stamp cost 39 cents?

    The second one, the picture looks a whole lot like Nicole Brown Simpson's sister. It seems really creepy to me,

    In any event, maybe they can get the person who bought that grilled cheese sandwich to pay for school. HA.

    muaahaha !

    I thought the picture kinda resembled Michael Jackson myself... :uhoh21:

    Heck! I'm desperate enough to consider this! haha. I wouldn't go through w/it though. This is a time when getting a job would do my financial situation more harm than good. Pan handling on ebay is a bit much though. Weird.
