This advertisement on ebay about getting a jl w7 for 100.00 is driving me mad. I know the site that everyone claims to be able to get this sub for 100$ on, its www.rimsandmore4less.com. However the Purchase is based on a straight line matrix, for every sub purchased 22 other people hafto purchase that sub in order for the first guy to get his. If this worked and is true, would there not always be 22 times more people waiting for a sub than there is people who have gotten the sub , and therefore only making the delay longer. People claiming they got the sub in 3 weeks on ebay are hard to believe [img]graemlins/bs.gif[/img] , does anyone have experiance with this or know someone who has tried it? Let me know, the website again is www.rimsandmore4less.com

and here is an ebay link http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...717628656&rd=1
from a guy that claims the site works.

I guess you only get a good deal if your one of the first in line...

How can they do that? They straight-up lie in their ad. Blatant lieing. Although if challenged, their might be a kernel of truth in their somewhere. Like say one guy got a W7 off Ebay in 3 weeks, but not necessarily through that deal. They purposely leave some details out in their fantastic description so it doesn't sound like lieing but it leaves a whole lot of the truth out.

so if 100 people got subwoofer so far (understatement) then 2200 people are waiting for one, so there is no way everyone will get one. there will be like 50000 people that will never get one......how can people think the site can get them a w7 quickly?. unless the chain restarts at 0 at some given point, but then the company would lose lots of money.....ahhh the stupidity.

it actually does work and those 22 ppl actually do dish out money and u actually do get a subwoofer. however there is a limit to it. like someone said the last 22 ppl get screwed.

the reason why it all works is the internet and simplicity of implicity. u put it on the net and make it sound easy and ppl will do it. Trust me i work for an online ad company and we target USA only and let me tell u ppl click and sign up for the STUPIDEST offers and campaigns.

For example, would any of u guys sign up for this offer: (no virus or spyware here) http://www.myfreebbq.com/ ???? none of u would probably sign up. BUT we get THOUSANDS of sign ups DAILY for that offer alone, and thats only from the USA. Now with this W7 thing imagine u get americans, canadians and just about any other place on the planet where W7 is known. Actually I would have to say that a 3 week turn around time is kinda long for the ammounts of ppl signing up for that.

well its based on a straight line matrix. first person to buy one waits for 22 other people to buy one. and then the next person that bought one after the first person (person 1/22 for the first person)would hafto wait for 22 more people. so if 2 people got their subs than 22 would be waiting for one right, eventually it would take forever to get a sub if you are #300 you would wait for 6600 people to sign up before you got your sub, and then the 6600 person would hafto wait for 145200 people to sign up before he got his.....atleast thats how I think it works.

That free barbeque is just funny, the dumbasses that sign up for it......
