QuickTake: This Woman Up for Bids

Deborah can be had for $600,000, house included.

Clever gal is Deborah. She's reaped a lot of attention by offering her house and herself on eBay for $600,000. As she puts it, the house is worth approximately that much in the Denver housing market, but she herself is "priceless."

This scheme is another in the long line of creative, attention-getting uses of eBay. Deborah (no last name is given on her web site) is looking for a good relationship with a good man, but her efforts to find that man in more conventional ways have proven fruitless.

If you're a man between 40 and 60, well educated, and like animals, maybe you'll want to submit a bid. I've shown you Deborah, but you'll have to visit her web site to see the house.

Sounds like a golddigger to me... Although I must admit that if I were a 60 year-old millionaire, I'd give bidding some serious consideration.

That does seem pretty stupid. Why would you put yourself up for sale and say you are priceless. It sounds like she has some serious mental issues.

I'm curious... did you bid for the package Dr. Ayers? This is just another crazy idea that the internet has allowed people to come up with. Ebay has had it's share of wierd items for sale. I do feel bad for the woman but does she really believe that she'll find the right person this way? Ryan is correct to suspect a golddigger. I wonder if I'll be seeing this on the nightly news soon? It would be interesting if the woman actually finds a serious bidder. She probably will though if this article is indeed legitamate. I wonder if such a purchase would be included in the GDP? Maybe the house won't because it is apparently a used house but what about the purchase of the 2nd item in the deal? Even though she lists herself as priceless wouldn't it still be like your buying her as well? Good luck Dr. Ayers!

This really is something that I would have never known it it were not for this class. Is that even legal to do? I guess it was a pretty smart way to make some money. Isn't that kind of what hookers do though?
