Tiny Log Pile Scam


From Ebay: A VERY NICE 1:24 SCALE LOG PILE IN CAST RESIN. 3 INCHES LONG X 1 INCH HIGH X 1 1/4 INCHES DEEP. (AXE NOT INCLUDED). A SUPER LITTLE ITEM!

First, they get you to buy the tiny logs. Soon you think “Sure would be nice if I could chop my tiny logs.” So, you go back and buy the tiny axe.

A week later, you’re back buying a tiny canvas cover for your tiny log pile. And then a tiny sharpener for your tiny axe.

Then winter comes round and you start thinking about building a tiny fire. So, you buy a tiny fireplace. Tiny fireplace tools, tiny gloves (that don’t even come close to fitting your hands) and tiny newspapers for kindling.

That’s when you realize... you need a microscopic box of matches. Literally. The matches you'll need are, like, 10 atoms long.

And for that, they charge you one hundred thousand dollars.

That's how it works.

I've heard about scams like this. Actually, the one I heard about was a guy who called old people, gained their confidence and then tried to steal their retirement savings with phony investment schemes.

Nothing to do with tiny logs, but same idea.

I'm really worried.

Good thing there's no scams involving coal.

It's pretty much free, totally clean burning, GREAT for the environment, and nobody in their right mind would buy a miniature pile of coal!

This just in: JFK was killed by a tiny log pile that fell on him.

LogBlogMan is honored to have Michael J Fox participating in his blog, but kindly requests that he repeat himself. His last post was a bit shaky.

I can't believe this. I set out to get some ideas on my new site.. you know themes, color, layout, etc.... and I can't believe how much stuff I've found looking around. I'm liking some of the stuff I see here... some good ideas at least. I'm not sure if I want to go with normal blue underlined links or if I want an entire theme of colors for all of the text and the links too. Anyway, nice page, it gave me something to chew on. If anyone actually sees this and feels like it, you can check out my site. electric fireplace
