Speaking of trafficking, I watched the Epstein documentary on Netflix this past weekend.

I can’t say I knew much about the guy other than the fact he didn’t kill himself of course.

Yeah, every time I ordered curtains, they delivered me curtains. But, I guess that's all I could get since I paid more like $14.99 instead of $14,990.

I'm going to call BS on this. I don't know Wayfair from a hole in the wall, but I find it extremely unlikely that using a publicly traded commerce company for the purposes of human trafficking is the most efficient way to do things. I can't explain the overpriced goods (maybe for the purposes of money laundering) or the names, but Wayfair is publicly traded with some of the smartest people on Wall Street giving them a financial anal exam, daily. The execs get paid real well. I doubt any of them want to do 25 years to life.

I don't have a dog in the fight. I don't think I have ever bought anything from Wayfair. I hope all human traffickers burn in hell. I just don't believe that this is what is going on, here.

but isn't it odd? the names are the part that's causing the fuss. people miss-price listings all the time, but how often do they include the name of a recently "missing" person along with the typo in the price?

The sellers might be trolling to make any allegations of human trafficking look like a fringe conspiracy theory and discredit/suppress serious discussion of it. No one wants to openly dig into something that only “crazy conspiracy nut jobs” entertain.

I read some of the children named in the listings have been found previously.

was looking for an early 60's non reverse firebird pickguards earlier in the week

on eBay or reverb there was three or four posted for $1,800 right in a row for the same guard which was a new pickguard not even an original early 60's...thought it was odd and figured it was just a typo ...but it was there for 3 or 4 days...all of them

let me go back and check and see if they are still there...

edit: they are gone...maybe just a weird coincidence....carry on
This is interensting, as $1800 is a hell of a lot for a pickguard, unless ther is a fine guitar attached to it! Makes me wonder if somebody is hacking into sites that sell stuff and planting ads that the sellers didn't post.

Wayfair, for those who don't know, is a fairly well respected on line seller of furniture and household goods. It is a corporation, and I believe it is puvlically traded. They have a huge stocik, good customer service, and included shipping. Think of it as the "Sweetwater" of furniture.

money laundering?

you need a clean tax payin business to wash dirty cash. they buy the oversized cabinets or amazingly soft cotton throw pillows for 10-16 grand, then you get the when are wear the pedo orgy is through a burner phone and boom money is now clean and you sold a child for a one night stand with a creep!

its not absurd and very doable

also, no one here has mentioned this reputable company Wayfair was in alot of heat recently for being a vendor to ice and selling them cages to "house" / detainee illegal migrant women in children in detentions warehouses..

This is actually a plausible thing that could happen. If a human trafficking ring employed a hacker and they accessed someone's user account at a business that had full access they could certainly use a Company's e-commerce site to transact and launder money. Hackers are miles ahead of cyber security experts because they work together and share methods with each other to carry out their criminal deeds, while legitimate companies don't share information about their breaches with each other and often cover them up avoid negative press. I believe our Company's Cyber Security guy mentioned one time that hackers have in the past been known to hack and use servers of legitimate businesses to host the type of porn that would go along with human trafficking. Most enterprise quality security software scans the system for those types of things nowadays.

Pizzagate. Now this?

Just accuse everyone of trafficking. If you act the least bit rational, you are probably involved. No one likes pedos— and you must be one if you defend this sort of thing.

Snopes is quite fine. All sorts of people deny reality for political reasons, or their own mental illnesses.
