Default The Economy is Fine!!

If people are willing to spend this kind of money on this:

Nike Air Yeezy II Sneakers Signed by Kanye West | eBay

Over $99,000 for a pair of shoes, and look at the number of bids!!

I doubt its schilled. All money goes to charity and items like this attract people who may not go on ebay that often thus they would have 100% bids with one seller and low feedback.

So the guy is using 10+ different ID's to take it to a point that no one would make a "legit" bid? What's the point of that?

Maybe it's legit. Maybe it's not, but your "opinion" doesn't make anyone an idiot because they don't agree with you.

I guess I'm just confused as to why anybody would pay that much money for anything. Other then a Ferrari, house, college ed-u-ma-ca-tion. 100k for some Kanye sneakers? Even for a charity or benefit, it just seems "retarded"

Hey, it all goes to charity. If that's RUH-TART-ED, then so be it.

We should do some whistle-blowing whenever donations are made to charities, maybe those are "schilled" as well lol.

If 100% goes to charity will the winner be able to write the whole winning amount off as a donation on their taxes? Just curious.
