    Default Treasure Hunt on Ebay

    I got to it just before it finished.

    Looks dodgy but cheap.

    If it comes online again I might buy it and post it here.

    What do you all think?

    It's already up and listed again here: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...Pr2_PcY_BIN_IT over 9 days left on it. Might be worth investing in.

    Okay, call me crazy. I bought 1. There are only 8 left now.
    If you get it and want to throw some ideas around let me know in a pm.

    I took a look, seems real sketch to me. Parts have been left out that tell you where to go, no guarantee that there is a treasure. 40% goes to charity, 30% to finders, and 30% to the author. And that is after the locals take out their cut. Seems real iffy if you ask me. BTW hope you are the religious type if you get this book, it was found in, and seems to be about the bible. Good luck

    I know it's stupid to be hesitant about such a small ammount of money

    but

    the language in the excepts on ebay seems too prosaic to be a father - son exchange:

    The splendor of what was gracing my eyes cannot be described with words! One would have to invent new words!
    Why not say there's a shed load of goodies hidden now here's how you find it followed by the coded stuff.

    I've always remaind undecided about the Beale Codes but it really sounds like a modern day equivalent.

    ALSO JEWELS OBTAINED IN ST. LOUIS IN EXCHANGE TO SAVE TRANSPORTATION AND VALUED AT THIRTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS. THE ABOVE IS SECURELY PACKED IN IRON POTS WITH IRON COVERS. THE VAULT IS ROUGHTLY LINED WITH STONE AND THE VESSELS REST ON SOLID STONE AND ARE COVERED WITH OTHERS
    could just as easily have been jewels worth 13,000 dollars are in stone pots.

    The ISBN shown in the picture of the ebay ad is :

    1-59971-361-6

    My searches can not find any results for this number, even using the Library Of Congress. ?

    Well, I think curiosity killed the cat on this one, but that is my opinion. I would not recommend this to anyone but ya never know.

    Have any purchasers received the document. And if so what do you think about its authenticity.
