Memo to Bidz.com CEO David Zinberg:
As you can see by the enclosed picture, I gladly accepted a subpoena from Bidz.com to testify in a class action lawsuit alleging consumer fraud by your company.My research on Bidz.com (NASDAQ: BIDZ) is a freebie for securities regulators to help me try to get into heaven for past crimes at Crazy Eddie, though I doubt I can ever make up for my past evil acts. My blog posts on Bidz.com's inventory disclosures caused the Securities and Exchange Commission to investigate your company.
Therefore, I thank you for the $44 witness check as a small reward for my efforts, since no one else has paid me to research or write about your company. In fact, when a person from my former office told me that your company was trying to serve me with a subpoena and the attached witness check, I quickly took the subway downtown to accept service and your check.
