I see that many people bid like $10 on a 2Ghs mining contract for 24 hours on ebay.. (which is equivalent to BTC0.0017) Can anyone explain this? I don't believe that they are just stupid and throw away their money without knowing what the return value will be..

They get the mining returns and then chargeback. Paypal will side with the buyer since they never received a "physical good". Therefore the person gets the $ they spent back + anything they gained from mining. Dirty Scammer scum.

I sell Bhut Jolokia "Ghost" Chili seeds and other hot pepper seeds for BTC. PM me for details.

These charge backs do not always work.
Sometimes (like in my case) the credit card company judges in the seller's favour.

The only problem is that it can take up to 6 months to resolve these charge back claims.

But I see buyers with high feedback bidding.. What if the seller sends some screenshots of the miner running?

This is how it works, buyers can say that their account got hacked and that they didn't order anything.
BANG. your £1000 they paid u dissappears because u cannot prove that you delivered said virtual currency.

simple, and it works some of the time.
