My friend (it wasn't me, seriously) was approached by a random guy at a gas station. He was selling a box of Kinetic KA 8100 5.1 surround speakers/sub in a box. The guy tells him that they are worth a couple grand but sells the box to my friend for $100. Is this system worth anything? A quick scan of ebay shows the same system selling for $99 including free shipping lol. But, I also saw the same system selling on ebay for over 2 thousand. What is going on here? Sure sounds like a scam.

They look like fake Bose AM-10 speakers. At least he only paid $99 for them. I'm sure Bose has thrown a lawsuit at these guys by now.
