Stupid EBay Bidders

December 30, 2008

A while ago I read about people who, possibly unknowingly, buy gift cards on Ebay for more than their face value. This behavior seems to defy any logical explanation; it is unlikely that someone would be doing this just to earn an Ebay positive feedback point.

Today, I saw an auction on Ebay for an Abercrombie & Fitch T-Shirt where the final sale price was in excess of US $225! Wow! Abercrombie & Fitch shirts are expensive, but holy cow.

Actually, the reason for the high sale price was that the individual selling the T-shirt is a young, reasonably attractive looking bodybuilder in Europe, and on his personal blog he mentioned that he was selling the shirt on Ebay to the highest bidder. Still, it seems like a massive waste of money.
