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.
