I found another auction on eBay to join the ranks of the stupidest auctions ever conducted on the site. Well, it's mainly the buyer that's stupid. Anyways look at the link to see what I mean!

Am I missing something here? At worst the guy got taken for about $2.50. Far far worse stuff have happened on ebay.

I'd say he is a moron even if he paid $125. Why not just go to the store and spend $125? Now if you win it for less I see the point but geez.

Look at his ebay ID...says it all! Posted Image

I'm only kidding. Posted Image

I wonder if I put up a $328 Blockbuster card for $300 if I'd get any bids.

maybe you could get $350 from the same guy...but how did you end up with that much on a bb card?

I guess he really really wanted it. That showed the other buyers not to mess with him/her. Posted Image

I noticed that too. Anyone with "nascarfan" in his ID can't be too far from a Walmart store, can he?

What about the idiot who sold it. He had $150.00 from Wal Mart. He sold it for $2.50 more, but has to pay EBAY for listing, and a percentage of the final selling price, plus the cost of the stamp to mail it.

Who's the bigger idiot??????

The guy that sold it might have gotten it free, or discounted, or something, though.

Good post, Tony, that's some funny **** right there.

I checked, and he could have gotten it directly shipped from Walmart for $1.87 shipping cost. He could have saved $0.94

I dunno... If I was giving it as a gift to someone (which this time of year I could definitely see doing) I could see paying 3 bucks to NOT have to get in the car, use the gas, and fight the crowds....

I repeat:

Also, there's a lot of Walmary gift card scammers out there, too.
