Chandigarh, UT India (PressExposure) July 11, 2008 -- "It was surprising when bids to buy the life of a heart broken man reached the mercurial figure of two million dollars, but it was actually , when the seller found out that his life was worth just the quarter of that amount ."
Ian Usher, 44, surprised everyone , when he announced that he is auctioning his life on Ebay with a combined package which includes his three bed room flat in Perth, a part time job at a rags store , three pairs of blue jeans , and even time shares with his friends.
He has reached this decision after the break up of his 10 years marriage with his wife Laura with whom he has built his dream house in Perth.
Usher posted his bid in Ebay, hoping to raise up to $4,25,000 to fund the rest of his life . But incidentally, on the first day of the bid , his auction price skyrocketed way beyond his expectations levels to 2 million dollars.
But Usher knew his life was not worth that amount and he realized later that there was a fault in the the bidding system, as Ebay started allowing bids for non registered members as well. After sorting out this error, there were just 21 bids remaining in his profile , with highest bidder quoting his life to $4,50,000.
" I can't claim 2.1 million dollars for my self , since I am not worth that. There are bored idiots out there , they were bidding it for having some fun. " said Usher to a news channel.
