WikiLeaks Targets eBay Trainer Skip McGrath

December 2nd, 2010 by Skip McGrath

News Release, Seattle WA, December 2, 2010, 5:00PM PST

For Immediate Release

WikiLeaks Julian Assange Targets Skip McGrath

Word has surfaced that WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, has targeted Skip McGrath’s Auction Seller’s Resource.  WikiLeaks founder Asssange told underground supporters that he plans to reveal all of the marketing secrets contained in The Complete eBay Marketing System.  As an ardent anti-capitalist Wiki Leaks’ Assange said in an email to his supporters: “…the information contained in the Complete eBay Marketing System is so powerful it gives an unfair advantage over other poor eBay sellers who cannot afford the course.”

Sources in London, where Julian Assange is hiding out in  a SOHO massage parlor above an Ethiopian restaurant, could not confirm when exactly he plans to leak the information or what media he would share it with.  When called, the New York Times who published the last WikiLeaks broadside would neither confirm nor deny what they planned to publish or when, but did confirm they had heard rumors that Skip McGrath would be the next target.

Sources said that Skip McGrath was furious and threatened unspecified action (sources claim it has something to do with waterboarding and peanut butter) if Assange went through with his planned release.

Skip McGrath Vows to Fight Back

Reached for comment Skip said: “This is the work of a sissy and a coward. I suspect, but cannot prove, he is being paid off by  the Star Chamber of  giant eBay PowerSellers who don’t like the fact that I help new sellers get started on eBay.”

Skip further vowed he will not get away with it. ” From now through midnight on Christmas Eve, I am lowering the price of The Complete eBay Marketing System by $20.00 to combat this devious plan and to help get as many copies of the book into as many seller’s hands as possible.

Anyone interested in purchasing a copy of The Complete eBay Marketing System can use the special coupon code 20SKIP576 in the coupon box at checkout. We are also offering Free Shipping with this offer.”

I just wanted to let you know that I think this is truly a disgusting and cowhearted act. Obviously, this weak excuse for a human being questions himself and his methods or he would not remain in hiding during his malicious attacks. Arent’ we searching caves in Afghanistan for people like that? For what it’s worth, I completely support you and whatever methods you take to prove you are the better man.

Behind you all the way,

Thanks for your support. I agree wholeheartedly. When you are proud of what you do you stand up and take credit for it –not cower behind a sofa at your boyfriend’s house.

Can’t believe I had to read 2/3 of the “News release” before I figured out it was sales copy. Brilliant! Must be why I’ve followed your work all these years.

eBay doesn’t fit into my biz model anymore, but when I first got into it (2003), your material helped me tremendously.

Oh Skip,
Just write another book, charge double, and remember that your business model is predicated on the accessibility of the internet and the free flow of information. Live by the sword, die by the sword. Really, you cannot have your cake and eat it too.

A man calling himself “You know who” called me, offering to end hostilities, if you do “you know what” at “that place we were talking about”. This would have to be followed by “that thing” at “you know where”.

Hope this makes sense.

Great job, Skip! Last I heard, the man had been arrested.

You are a true patriot! Helped yourself and more importantly our country too.

Keep up the good work. Now if you can only help to track and capture Osama bin-Laden.

I have also heard rumblings from the camps that he is less than enamored with you as well.

Any plans in the works.
