Thoughts?

P.S. I took a screen shot but I don't know how to put a picture on my post, if someone will let me know how then I will share the pic.


You have to upload the picture to the net somewhere "imageshack or something like that, I think you can use facebook, but dunno how" then include the URL in a "Img" format that you can click on when writing a message.

Why not just include the link to the auction? I know a bunch of people who set up donations to their legal funds. Never understood that, but it's probably a smart idea. New age panhandling.

interesting...

1) "I worked hard my first semester and got really great grades (top 5% of my class) but I not fear that I may have to drop out because of my financial situation." I'm not really sure what the "not" is doing in that sentence...

2) If she is top 5%, why is she worrying about repaying her loans???

3) Do you think that is actually her in the picture?

This is absolutely ridiculous and reeks of a scam. If you can't afford to pay for LS yourself, you should 1) not go or 2) take out loans like the rest of us.

1) It's just more proof this is an overseas scam.

2) No kidding. She just wants free money fast and she wants it now.

3) Hell no. The girl in that picture is pretty attractive. The girl seeking the donations is a cow. Fat chicks love to deceive by putting pictures of pretty girls in their profile pics.

I bet this is an overseas scam by a law school graduate who is unemployed and has no other income, ironically collecting donations to pay off his own law school student loans

If you're top 5% at Cornell you should be seeing $$$ in your future. I wouldn't worry if I were her assuming all the facts that she provided are true and this isn't a scam (my personal vote).

I think this is real and simply an effort to buy sympathy with a creative new donation scheme. Shame on this person who is going to an elite law school and probably is well off compared to the average person.

This underlying sympathy principle certainly applies to how the gubmint does things with handing out disability, unemployment insurance, and certainly all types of other benefits arising out of someone being poor.

I like that it has Ebay Buyer Protection directly above the words "THERE IS NO ITEM."

ATL did a story on this and it's confirmed that it's stock photo. It's not of her.

I'll post. I ask for no quarter and I will give none to e-panhandlers.

I would be worried about this person's privacy if someone were posting things that she didn't mean to make public, but if you post something on freaking eBay, you're trying to get seen.
