Joker Sells Indian Prime Minister's House On eBay

from the good-one dept

There are all sorts of stories about bogus deals on eBay and scams where people sell stuff they just don’t have, but it appears one scammer got extra creative last month and figured out a way to sell the home of India’s prime minister on eBay to an American businessman — who was a bit surprised upon arriving in India to discover that he could not take possession of the house. Of course, it does make you wonder who buys houses on eBay without actually looking at the property in question — or receiving any actual proof of ownership from the seller.
