eBay Laser Pointer Scam Exposed

2008-02-29 08:53:45 - Like any other market place, eBay has its share of both good and bad sellers, offering bargains and scams. One scam carried out by a small number of eBay sellers that is becoming increasingly common is high powered green laser pointers.

The scam itself is based on the type of light given out by the laser pointer, the way power is measured, changes made to the laser pointer and ignorant and/or dishonest sellers.

These lasers are advertised as green lasers and should give out green light and only green light. That how ever is not the case. Virtually all supposedly
high power green laser pointers on ebay emit a combination of green light with a wave length 532nm light and infrared light with wavelengths of 808nm and 1064nm light.
