I would only look if he had first rate movies.

But if I was close, I'd show up. Just to laugh.

I'm putting up on Craigslist an autographed copy of my latest Experian™ credit report, so that in 100 years your grandkids can point to it and tell their own grandkids that this is what caused the Great Depression of the early 2000's.

My asking price is my actual credit score in dollars and cents -- $4.50 ;-)

Mr. Outspoken said...

My concern is: how HOT are these hot new releases? Who has a thousand sealed DVDs? What did he do, pillage an Amazon warehouse?

Mr. Outspoken said...

Casey, I thought they rounded credit scores to whole numbers?

Casey Serin said...

I meant to imply a 450 credit score. heh.

Frankly, it would've been lower but when Experian ran my portfolio of defaults and fraud through their FICO algorithm, their server crashed and I was just assigned the minimum possible score. :-p

Outspoken,

Someone who HELOCs their home in order to buy everything DVD they might ever want to watch.

How DO you find these things???

My guess is this is leftover from a Blockbuster Video going out of business

I used to sell rock records mail order and at swap meets. A collector / dealer could easily have thousands of titles and they wouldn't necessarily be hot.

For all those sales listed, it's a given that dealers will be there when the sales starts and go through it like locusts. All the good stuff will be gone in fifteen minutes.
