    Watch out though, this site routes you through pop-up links.

    The `typo-ed` auctions that you find may not be typos after all, they could be `fake` brand names! Like, Sonny instead of Sony, and some unsuspecting customer will just buy thinking it`s an original Sony with a typo.

    Just saying.

    ^^Cute.

    Anyway, I got a `page could not be displayed screen.` I guess I`ll have to go back to not using EBay at all whatsoever.

    Good idea but it never worked for me. I typed in my search and then it didn`t give me any results, just a picture of a dog that I couldn`t click.

    It`s a smart idea.
    But I thought it was going to be a service that pays you for finding typos in the eBay listings. My mom`s an editor, and I got the genes from her, so I thought I had just found my fortune.
    Wow. I`m really disappointed.

    just do it manually- its easier. My dad sometimes does that, and you can get some bargains.

    I wonder whether `mispelt` is a typo for `misspelt` or just stupidity.

    Only problem with sites like this is that when you go and look for a mis-spelt item thinking that your going to get that exclusive iPod for 99p,you find that several hundred other people have looked at the same site as you and the item is now at £150...

    I`m going to have to find some `Toshia` products and sell them on ebay. Then, when people buy it, thinking it`s a Toshiba, I can say, "Nope, says `Toshia` right there... SUCKER!"... heheheh.
