eBay: Brew Your Own magazine - 3-year subscription, $10


Not likely at all, so I wouldn't trust the link enough to click on it and take any chances; some websites can now automatically install malware on your computer. At the very least, you're likely to get ripped off because it is highly unlikely that legitimate subscriptions are being sold at that price. I hope no one here falls for this.
Cheers.

I can't vouch for the original poster, but go to ebay and search for subscriptions of your favorite magazine. A lot of magazines are so desperate for new subscribers that they give current subscribers free gift subscriptions and they put them up for auction.
So if you don't want to trust the OP, go to ebay and find that subscriptions are being sold at that price.

Yes, Tom, there are and here is an example:

But while there is always the possibility that they are legitimate, then again it is VERY possible that they are NOT. All things considered, I'm not willing to take the chance for the following reasons:
1. The poster appears to be a spammer (and scammer according to 'Ant'); the email addy is snipped-for-privacy@spamexpire-200711.rodent.frell.theremailer.net and here is his/her profile --

-- which indicates zero posts prior to October, a single post in October, and now 474 posts in November with activity in 218 newsgroups, and I'll bet my next batch of beer that most of them are trying to sell something. I don't trust spammers; they are low-life criminals who are just as likely to break other laws including ripping people off.
2. As they say, "If something seems to be too good to be true, it probably is." A quick check of the BYO website and other magazine outlets shows the following for a _ONE_ year subscription: $28.00 direct from BYO -

-- or $27.68 for a __ TWO __ year subscription And here this spammer is offering THREE years for Ten Dollars. Frankly, I don't think they'd arrive because the postage alone to deliver 24 magazines probably exceeds ten bucks. Now, you could probably get your money back from eBay, or PayPal, or your credit card company, but how many of us would want to spend perhaps an hour or longer getting jerked around on the phone or filling out forms just to recover $10.00.
But I could be wrong. Cheers.
