How the tables have turned!
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?...I can't explain the overpriced goods (maybe for the purposes of money laundering) or the names...
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.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 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.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.
