    I was going to repost the ad here, but the ad specifies: "Reposting this
    message elsewhere is NOT OK." As I don't post anonymously, I decided not to
    repost. So go take a look before it expires.

    The e-mail address there matches the e-mail address here:
    http://whois.domaintools.com/digitalshopcart.com
    Scroll down to see the whois record.

    And here is more on digitalshopcart.com and how they build their web site:

    After I posted in this newsgroup the ad was removed (but still is in
    Google's cache) and the domain name was taken anonymous. So here is the ad:

    Web \Sales Office worker -- Tue Jun 27 -- (Brighton\Manhattan Beach)
    email:

    items in our web sites and research prices before hand on all search

    voice, and convincing. Work hours are Mon-Fri : 12pm-6pm or 11-5 or 10-4 No

    Here is the former whois:

    I read many horror stories about people ordering super-cheap cameras
    off online shops, only to discover that they are required to call back
    to confirm the order, and they are being sold overly expensive
    batteries or cards or wahtever. The strategies are crooked, because the
    salesperson says: "The battery which comes with the camera is only for
    15 mins of shooting, so you should buy an additional battery from us".
    With this battery, the price would be no better than everywhere else.
    If you fob off their efforts to sell you battery, exended warranty or
    whatever, they simply say that the camera is out of stock. It stuck in
    my memory that most of this "swindlers" are located in Brooklyn, and a
    name of such a seller "Wawa digital" stuck in my mind. Also, the
    swindled people said that the caredit card numbers with which they paid
    were fraudulently charged by some criminals. The said wawa digital
    staff was abusing the people on the phone and even left a threat with
    lots of swearing on someone's ansering machine. I will not be surprised
    that this "digitalshopcart" is one more incarnation of this wawa
    digital.

    So, Don Wiss, this is what you wanted to say when you paid the
    auditorium's attention at this job ad ?
