Does anybody know if skoreit.com is legit. A T1i just sold for $37.00!!! Is it too good to be true. It seems to be a timing auction.

There are several pay-to bid auction sites like that. If you are a casual bidder who goes into it with no strategy, you will ultimately loose money and are better just paying for your gear the standard way. There are however people who study the statistics of it and, in the long run (over numerous auctions) make a good profit. If you are not going to put a lot of time and effort into this, then don't bother. I'm personally not willing to put in the time and have stayed away from these sites.

Some reading:
