eBay scam of the week.

But I think, at the risk of sounding kind of dumb, it might have some insight for evil corporations. This scam is in essence many corporate strategies.

Take, for example, the 'food' industry in the US. Their strategy is to strip out (costly) nutritional value, and replace it with (cheap) taste value. This is just what Jean Baudrillard said would happen - you are, in essence, buying a simulation of the food, not the food itself.
