Imagine this: you find out three days before Christmas that your boyfriend has been cheating on you with your good friend. After dumping the dud, what would you do with your unopened Christmas presents? When this happened to Leanne Joseph of Britain, she decided to sell the wrapped presents on eBay.
In her ad, Leanne tells potential bidders that they can rest assured that the mystery gifts are worth their money. She writes: "'We fell out on the 22nd and we will definitely not be getting back together, so I do not want anything he had chosen for me this year. This is a bargain for someone as he always bought me nice gifts." Leanne also kept up the Christmas spirit, pledging to donate the profits to charity.
The final bid went for £350.00 ($550). It's amazing how a tale of heartbreak can drive the value of some simple unopened presents up so high! I might have some wrapped presents lying around . . .
