Al Gores internet goofs continue... his official campaign website had to shut down it's Kid's Page, after reporters noticed it asked kids for their names, e-mail addresses and zip codes... requesting that information will be illegal when a new privacy law takes effect in 2001.
The re-vamped website asks only for first names... and NOW warns kids NOT to give out the information it used to ask them for.

Scott Wilson lives the saying that one man's trash is another man's treasure.

NATSOT/HANDING OVER DEER HEAD:


"JACKPOT! THAT'S GREAT!"
NARR: Scott and his friend rescued "Fred" from a garbage pile in Boston. He could sell it at a flea market for a few bucks... but if he auctions it off on the Internet, he can make a lot more.

SOT/SCOTT

"PROBABLY UPWARDS OF 120-DOLLARS BECAUSE THOSE ANTLERS LOOK PRETTY
NARR: (shots inside ebay's computer room...and real auction)
Ebay is the largest auction house on the internet...offering up nearly two million items every day. Unlike at a traditional auction where you examine what you're buying... online users look at pictures and email their bids. Buyers and sellers can remain almost anonymous.
ONCAMERA BRIDGE:
"THAT IDEA OF BEING ANONYMOUS IS DRAWING CRIMINALS TO EBAY, AS WELL. PEOPLE HAVE BEGUN SELLING ILLEGAL ITEMS... EVERYTHING FROM AUTOMATIC WEAPONS... TO ENDANGERED SPECIES..TO DRUGS. SEVERAL INVESTIGATIONS ARE NOW UNDERWAY."

SOT/STEVE WESTLEY, SENIOR VP FOR MARKETING


"WE ACTUALLY WORK CLOSELY WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE WHO ARE LISTING ILLEGAL ITEMS ARE IN FACT BROUGHT TO JUSTICE"
NARR:
Ebay says it is doing what it can to shut down the black market. It has now banned all sales of firearms... because it could not make sure customers were obeying gun laws.

SOT/WESTLEY


" MORE AND MORE PEOPLE WERE SELLING AUTOMATIC WEAPONS, COMMODITY FIREARMS, AND THAT IS REALLY NOT WHAT EBAY IS ABOUT."

NARR: Ebay started out with a simple idea: to sell someone's pez collection. But as it grew, so did its problems: including customers who complain they were ripped off in schemes ranging from phony bids... to fake goods... .to sellers who never deliver once the money is paid.

SOT: (SCOTT) "I FOUND THIS IN THE TRASH."


NARR: But ebay's problems aren't likely to stop junkies like Scott Wilson... he's going to put the entire contents of his house up for auction..

SOT: "THIS IS APPARENTLY THE EQUIVALENT, ALMOST LIKE TIFFANY..."
