This is a guest post, submitted by my lovely father…
I am sorry but who puts unwanted presents on an auction site like eBay? Unwrapped.
It happens every year. Listing after listing of unwrapped presents put on eBay with disclaimers such as “these are from my ex” or “we just don’t want them”.
I cannot believe that somebody hates their ex SO much that not only do they not want the presents but they don’t unwrap them but are happy to auction them off for cash. Will they be keeping the cash? Yes, of course they will.
And if you wanted to get rid of some old tat from around your house in January what better way to do it?
And who bids on these? Up to £70!!!! They could be empty boxes for all anybody knows.
I can’t help thinking that this is all just a great scam.
These have been received by two sisters from friends and family and they just don’t want them so are flogging them. Why wrap them? Why not unwrap them and sell them individually?
Or this one:
Again, why not open them and sell them for what they are worth? They could be worth thousands?
Or do the decent thing and give them back.
