Thanks for the headsup… I hate it when things like that pop up. taking advantage of other people, and trying to make a buck from nothing at all. some people should just get a job.

I e-mailed a similar add and asked if it was thousands of plans or thousands of links and they never responded so I didnt buy it.
Thanks for the heads up on this one.

They sell CDs on Fleabay all the time. They sell for about $5 and get 10-15 shipping for an envelope. Noting but web addys and links. A friend bought one a few years ago and it had a link to my plans page on it. LOL Google free plans and you will find thousands to choose from, even google for a specific plan and you get a lot of them to choose from.

eBay hasn’t shut them down because they keep paying their fees into eBay’s coffers.

Here’s the administrative info for their website. Notice that they hide behind a proxy, in order to make them more difficult to find:

Administrative Contact: Private, Registration Domains by Proxy, Inc. 15111 N. Hayden Rd., Ste 160, PMB 353 Scottsdale, Arizona 85260 United States (480) 624-2599 Fax—(480) 624-2598

If you’ve been harmed ($$$) by them, or are simply upset at their business practices, maybe giving Domains By Proxy a call … and … an earful … could help.

Unfortunately, it is spelled out in the second sentence of their ad. ”The disc is packed with thousands of links containing every type of woodworking project” Buyer beware. I do not like web sites like this either, but there is nothing Ebay can or will do. This outfit states it clearly in their ad. A few years ago, a company in Tennessee came out with a directory for the internet, $9.99 on Ebay, worst rated item I believe of all time, but it sold thousands of copies. I think that by the time the directory was published, something like half the addresses were no longer valid.
