Question Just wondering

I was just wondering if it would be considered unethical of me to have my computer whiz friend devise a virus that I could send to people selling Chibanez guitars. It would be sent as a question to the seller, and upon him opening the question his computer would just start flashing a message along the lines of "Stop selling fakes". Then I could offer to sell him a "stunning exquisite new computer device", which when he received it would be a shoebox painted white with an empty cd case taped to it (D drive) and a paper clip mounted on the front (USB port). Of course the shoebox would contain a dead fish (to bring him and his family lots of good luck). This would be illegal, yes?

Re: Just wondering

I can't see how you could send someone a virus thru 3bays ask seller a question feature because its server side, your not actually sending the message, 3bay is..

Re: Just wondering

Yeah, it wouldn't work. First off, you would be sending him an e-bay message, which is text only. Secondly, you would need him to download something for him to get the virus, or make him follow a link to get a "stop selling fakes" message. In which case, he'll just laugh and move on to the next question.

Re: Just wondering

hey, it's worth a try. these guys are ripping off people like steve vai, and satriani, even gilbert, who have basically put their life into this instrument. how do they expect these guys to make a living, if they are creating these mediocre hunks of wood?

go for it dude. all the way
