    I know times are tough but I hope I would never have to do this. I wonder have they made any money.

    Yes and if you check out the feedback of the first one she is making purchases from ebay and paying promptly. The second one looks like at least she's only selling stuff. I wonder if they really are nursing students or just con artists? They have 2 days left on their 5 day auctions and so far no bidders. I find adding the photo for the second one really odd also. Like you said: Just when you think you've seen it all

    Yeah adding the photo seem strange to me. I hope she is not sending these people grades etc. using her home address and info.

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

    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.

    Don't worry, it will be gone soon.

    That is wild! How are they paying for internet and stuff? Well, they could be using school internet so I guess thats not really an issue.

    Yikes! I need to find out how to pay my bills, mymedical costs and my 400+ a month tuition and buy books. I do work full time tho!

    I'm thinking this sort of thing is probably against Ebay policies ? Anyone know?

    Yes Manna, you're right. You aren't allowed to panhandle on ebay. I'm sure the auctions will be deleted soon.

    well....
    all i can say is it was an interesting idea, too bad it didn't work.

    the only thing that bothers me about this is that she sounds like she thinks that she's the only nursing student that can't get a scholarship and needs money. :angryfire

    ""I am attending school in Sept. of 2005.* It is only a 1 year course for LPN.""

    I just noticed this. Getting desperate a little early isn't she??? Perhaps she should wait on those scholarships.

    she seems a little hinky to me :uhoh21:

    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.
