JVC mini dv/svhs vcr for sale

I have a nearly new jvc hrdvs3u for sale. It is a combo mini-dv/s-vhs vcr. It works perfectly. I am selling it because it is not very compatible with my AVID system. It will work with nearly any other non-linear editor, AVID is just very picky. I would like to sell the unit for $800. It includes a four year MACK warrantee. I would also consider trade. Please email me at patrick_reardon@hotmail.com if you are interested.
Thanks
Patrick

Patrick,
Your profile does not say where you live. It might be helpful to tell people where you are since those that live closest might want to do business with you.

Matrix Lists Your Opinion

I was playing around eBay and discovered these sellers that will sell you a link for $10 that will place you into a Matrix that will allow you to receive free electronics, e.g. DCRVX2000's and XL-1s'. From my understanding, this is how it works:

You go to this website that will have eBooks for sale, after you buy an ebook, you will be placed in a list of people that will receive free stuff. So if the matrix had 25 people, and you were you enter into the matrix as number 25. The person currently number one will then receive his or her item and the person placed second now becomes number one. This goes on until you become number 1.

This sounds a lot like a pyramid scheme. I guess the only way it is even legal (if it is legal) is that they have circumvented the law by saying that you are actually buying an item (ebook). Ebooks are appropriately priced, ofcourse, so that the 25 people who has prepaid will have accumulated enough money as a whole to buy the item and make profit for the sponsor of the list. For instance, a list for a DCR-VX2000 with a 25 people will require something like a $200 ebook, so in turn these 25 people have raised $5000 to pay for a camera that RETAILS for $2999 which will leave $2001 profit for the matrix sponsor.

The problems are that if the list doesn't fill no one gets anything. Then there is always the question of legality.

What do you guys think? Creative marketing or SCAM? I think this is a scam myself and urge everyone to steer clear. Thanks.

This scheme has been discussed here. It is a pyramid scheme. Stick with a reputable vendor or seller for your gear.

Pyramid schemes like this one are still illegal in the US, right?

And it's definitely a pyramid scheme.

I don't know the exact statute but I think the reason pyramid schemes are illegal is because they consist of people spending money on no hard item or service which in turn makes it illegal because you are buying an ebook this may circumvent the law, I think or they hope. But it sounds way to fishy and fradulent.

Like nearly all such schemes it will probably escape law enforcement action until it collapses...which, of course, is too late. The scheme's managers are mistaken if they think that "ebook" will clear them.
