Why is the bidding this high?
Proceeds go to a Not For Profit would be my guess although between you and me I would imagine that one would be better off DONATING money and then getting a receipt rather than buying and then deducting the actual value of the item from the purchase price to get the deduction. ALso could be the buyer doesnt want the deduction just wants to give the organization. JJF
This puzzles me to. I would never buy that suit for that money. People who bid could be bougus bidders to hype the AD.
Maybe the high bidder meant to bid $142.50 but punched in an extra zero?
From October 20 to 26 the bidding rose from $10 to $30. Then that day someone with zero feedback entered a bid of $1,400 which was answered by a $1,425 bid from someone who had bid previously.
Charity or not, someone overpaid. I guess you Yanks can declare this on your income taxes.
Why do prices get so high? Well, who can better explain it than Gordon Gecko, Master of the Universe?
Interestingly enough, I bought this one for a tad bit less just a few hours earlier: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....MEWN:IT Didn't even notice it was for charity.
The point is ladies and gentlemen that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of it's forms - greed for life, for money, knowledge - has marked the upward surge of mankind and greed - you mark my words - will not only save that eBay auction but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA. Thank you. - or - It's all about bucks, kid. The rest is conversation.
For this phrase, use the possessive: its.
It's all about bucks, kid, and the correct use of grammar to keep up with your fancy pants.
That's what I get for cutting and pasting from IMdb.
Looks like a "shill" bidder to me. It doesn't make any sense to jump from $30 to $1,000 +. One could easily retract the bid, if it was a mistake. It would appear with zero feedback, someone who recently opened an account. Bogus.. Inexperienced bidders don't have a clue. The idea of winning is the main concern, regardless of the value of the item. bespoken2
