IRS Arcade Auction - MN

Archived from groups: rec.games.pinball (More info?)

I noticed an eBay ad (#6201840161) trying to sell information on an
upcoming arcade auction. The seller wanted a $24.99 opening bid (or
$29.99 BIN) to provide the information as to date, location and
responsbile agent.

While I am sure the seller believes that he or she is providing useful
information at a reasonable price, I have my doubts. Paying for public
information sticks in my craw, since as a taxpayer I have already paid
for it once. Plus, I am a well known cheapskate, even though I have
not achived the lofty CARGPB status.

So, by applying damn near two minutes to a search, I found the
following auction
http://www.treasury.gov/auctions/irs/samn_comm_938.htm which matches
the description of the one for which the seller is providing
information.

The auction is in East Sartell, MN on August 23. There look to be a
fair number of pins, along with a lot of redemptions. I hope that some
RGP'ers go there and find machines they want, without paying $29.99 to
find out where a publc auction is being held.

Thanks for sharin' Ron. I saw that as well. I hope no one is foolish
enough to pay that guy 30 bucks a pop for free info.

Only if you like scenery at $3/gallon. Any IRS auction will be
cancelled if the debtor comes up with the money he owes the government,
and that can happen five minutes before the auction is scheduled to
start. In June, there was supposed to have been a sheriff's auction in
Joplin MO, but that one got cancelled at the last minute. This one
could, too.

Looks like some operator out there didn't pay their taxes. The IRS
should get with the times and use Ebay. :p

No freakin' lie. The IRS really doesn't want to make much money off of
these things, do they?!?

10AM on a Wednesday. Sheesh. No wait, it gets better - the preview is
3-6PM on Tuesday.

No love for the workin' folk..

I thought about it... And I've heard from a number of people who plan
to be there -- enough that there'll be no bargains, unfortunately...

There you go TheOtherBob. Galoshes, velcro gloves, rub a little mint jelly
behind Bryan Bo Peep's ear, and you are in like Flynn. Heck, knowing Bryan
you won't even have to be good. AH :)

Old McBryan had a sheep suit, eee i eee i ohh . And everywhere that Bryan
went, the sheep were sure to know. With a baa baa here, and a baa baa there,
there were sure a lot of contented looking sheep lounging around in
Farmington having a cigarette and a beer.

Not so long as we're running budget deficits, they're not. Sad to say,
but true.

Besides, if they cleared more money using Epay or something like, then
they wouldn't have to hit the rest of us so hard...

.... OK, you can stop laughing now...
