    Okay, color me dumb, but who is Salvador Daly? I don't get it... I mean, unless you made a recent winning bid on ebay this would obviously be a scam, but then, I don't do the ebay thing so I'm sort of in the dark here.

    Lets face it, these guys arent real bright..

    how to mess with a e-bay/ paypal scam, also works for most bank scams when your not a member of the bank.

    1. Login with bogus info, my personal favorite login is not repeatable here..you get the picture...

    2. choose visa (if they make you pick) and put in 4111 1111 1111 1111 (remember, these guys arent' bright and dont' check) this is a valid visa test number and returns the proper checksum to the script running to see if the card is valid or not.

    3. put in some reasonable expire date, most cards expire within 3-5 years so pick something out there.

    4. CVV code, my personal favorite is 666 but you can pick any three numbers (like i said they aint that bright). besides this is only used during the sale to verify you have the card in your hand.

    5. of course give them the address of kofi annon or something similar, I have in the past used bill clinton, george bush, richard nixon or pick your favorite celebrity for the name and address.. 1600 pennsylvania ave, washington dc etc (you can look up the zip online, i just put in 5 random numbers).


    hit submit, if enough of us learn this and make them wade through tons of bogus data, maybe they'll go away. not likely tho.
