A notice from eBay administrators is now warning people who have contacted the seller of an allegedly genuine copy of Barack Obama's birth certificate – from Mombasa, Kenya – not to contact the seller again.

Furthermore, the sale page offering a dissertation on "the truth" about Obama's birth – with bids reported by WND readers to have exceeded $1 million – has been pulled from the auction website for the fifth time.

In the fifth and thus far most successful attempt at auctioning "the truth about Obama," the seller didn't mention the birth certificate, offering instead a "dissertation" on Obama's birthplace, and yet the auction page has disappeared again.

Now, eBay administration has sent a notice to those who have asked questions of colmado_naranja and received a response through the site's buyer-seller message system:

"Our records show that you recently received an email from colmado_naranja through the Ask Seller a Question or Contact eBay Member features. This email may be fraudulent," the eBay notice warns. "This kind of email is often called a 'phish' or 'phishing attempt,' and the people who send them are known as 'phishers.' Phishers use these methods to try to get your personal information, such as user names, passwords and credit card details. Because the emails may sometimes come through the eBay system, the phisher may seem to be trustworthy and have a good reason to contact you."

The notice then instructs, in multiple places, "Do not respond to the sender either through the eBay system or your email account."

Obama snobs around

People already think "Bush was bad, but this is ridiculous"

Does he really think the truth will not come out?

"I think it would be a good idea"

Mahatma Gandhi,
when asked what he thought of Western civilization

Sure Bush Lied, and often

But Obama **IS** a lie

"The consolidation of the states into one vast republic, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of the ruin which has overwhelmed all those that have preceded it."

- Robert E. Lee, 1866


Well if he actually has it, it will turn up somewhere.

Because Russia TV, a state

Because Russia TV, a state run propaganda news stations that censors anything anti-Russia and runs with any story that is anti-west, is trust-worthy? I thought we could never trust the mainstream media or the government?
