“Jimmy Vosika drove to Kansas City with a simple plan: He was going to buy four damaged plasma TVs and resell them on eBay. He’d already flipped a set he bought for $200, turning around and selling it for $700. It was 2006, and the St. Louis Park native had found a hobby that was making him a little money on the side.
But the trip did not unfold as planned. The supplier had more TVs than Vosika realized. Vosika decided to go all-in.”
