I've been enjoying reading Save Karyn, a girl in NYC who's asking people to send her a dollar or two to help her pay off her $20,000 credit card debt.

But all is not well in Karyn land. I really hope this isn't true, but if you look at her recent feedback for the items she's been selling on eBay here, she's received two negatives for shill bidding. For those that don't know, basically it means that you or someone you know use another eBay id to place bids that push the price up. It's very much frowned upon on eBay, and for her to receive two negatives so early on could see her getting her account pulled.

There's no proof that she did this yet, but it does seem strange, for example, that a pair of Gucci singlasses that she says cost $200 would go for over $300. She's also currently auctioning July issues of women's magazines, when she's stated that to save money, she's been reading them at the library.

I really want to believe that she's legit, but I'm feeling kind of wary now. I was even going to send her a few bucks - the envelope's still sitting in the living room. Hmmmmm. I guess this shows that if you're going to ask the world to send you $20,000, you'd better be prepared to be accountable for all your actions, and to have your every move scrutinised.

Hard to prove or disprove if she was involved, but what she got in debt spending her money on is insane. I take care of 4 people on half of her income.
