Beware of Michael Jackson Scams

If you've been spending your lunch hour scrolling through the many listings for Michael Jackson memorabilia, then make sure your sentiments don't get the best of you by purchasing something unauthentic. What's more, you should have your guard up when an email enters your inbox claiming that you (yes, you!) could own a special piece of history. According to the Better Business Bureau (BBB), you're a fool to respond to any email offering one-of-a-kind items from Jackson's life.

Steve Bernas, chief executive officer of the Better Business Bureau office in Chicago said in a statement, "The cause of Michael Jackson's untimely death still needs to be determined, and already people are seeing suspicious and awkwardly written e-mails appear in their in-boxes offering supposedly authentic items from the pop singer's life." The BBB encourages consumers to use common sense and carefully evaluate who the product is coming from before making a transaction.

I'm sort of over the whole MJ thing. Good thing I wasn't a huge fan of his...I could really care less about all the memorabilia that's out there. Someone on Ebay is selling MJ domain names for like, $250K. Seriously, who would pay for stuff like that??
