The internet has made it possible for people to easily buy and sell products and services to other consumers all over the world. EBay (NASDAQ:EBAY), Craigslist, Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), and more recently, sites like Fiverr, have rendered it possible for people to not only sell items they no longer want or need, but these sites have also become somewhat of a breeding ground for entrepreneurs.
While many of the products and services you find online are normal, everyday items like home decor, kitchen utensils, or electronics, some of the items you see are a bit more unique. Some people will do just about anything to earn a few bucks. For instance, back in 2007, when Brittany Spears’s had a toxic meltdown of sorts, the salon where she had her hair cut off attempted to sell her hair on eBay with a reported starting bid of $1 million. Because this was a violation of eBay policy (and also ethically questionable to say the least), no transaction ended up taking place.
Many of the crazy items people sell are generally construed as immoral, unethical, or walking a slippery slope. This is part of what makes these sales so shocking — the lengths or lows people will go through to earn money. This list of five crazy items people sell contain a few real doozies, where the seller abandons ethical considerations. The remainder of the items on the list are considered crazy because the seller is willing to place themselves in an awkward or undesirable situation.
