Man Buys Safe On Ebay For $122.93, Safe Contained $26,000
eBay is quite the pastime for buyers and sellers trying to make some extra cash. It is very much like our own Erwin Pawn Tradio Show. Before you try to sell something on eBay, you might want to make sure you aren’t selling more than you intend.
James Labrecque sold an old safe on eBay for $122.93. He’s been using eBay for over 15 years. At some point he obtained an old, locked safe with no combination.
He shook the safe and decided there was nothing inside. So he put the safe up for auction. The winning bidder lives in California. Why he bought the safe is a mystery. When he received the safe he had a welder cut it open. Inside he found $26,000.
The buyer gave Labrecque a positive review and shared the news.
“I feel like the stupidest idiot in the world,” said Labrecque. “I told my friend, I won the stupidest idiot in the world award the other day, you know. I gave away a safe with $26,000 in it.”
Labrecque has tried unsuccessfully to get the buyer of the safe to share the windfall. The buyer stands by eBay’s policy of “what you see is what you get, no returns and no money back.
