Default Bartlett man finds $26,000 in safe bought on eBay

My new search term for eBay will be "safe" now after reading this recent article, i guess it's "safe" to say there'll be no returns :D

I LOVE this part
"That's a chunk of change, you know. That's life-altering money," he said. "I mean, if I was in that situation and I found that kind of money and I bought it from someone, I'd say, 'Here man, I found this money. I'll give you half of it.'"

5 words: L M F A O!

I love the part where the seller wanted half the money and the buyer refused, citing the seller's sales policies: "What you see is what you get, no returns, and no money back."

When asked about it, the seller said "That's different!"

GOT WHAT HE DESERVED! Sellers with those policies ALWAYS point that out to buyers if there is a dispute, refusing to give an inch or work with them. But, when the shoe is on the other foot... well.... "That's different!"

NOT!!!

That story sounds shady in of itself - the seller prob just wanted 15 min. of fame - wouldnt be surprised if inside the safe, there was only a terd and not 26k.

yes $26K in cash would have some weight to it when shaking it ...... You don't have to hear it when shaking it you could feel it....

I like how the seller wanting to void his own TOS when he found out that there was money in the safe.

The seller might've just added that because he/she felt too bumhurt about everyone calling her an idiot.
