My mother once joked that she would ‘sell us on ebay’ if we were too much to handle. Now according to Ebay they has restrictions on human remains, but not specifically live ones, but I think it would come under this. Why am I talking about all this? Well today on the radio I heard that a Geelong mother, had tried to sell her two children, under the age of 10 on Ebay.
What’s more? There was several people bidding on the lot.
The mother listed her kids online, on Wednesday, although the page wasn’t picked up till yesterday when the page started to get traffic.
The police went to the woman’s house, after tracking her down where she declared that, “… she was only joking…”
A police spokesman says the case has been investigated and while the woman has avoided criminal charges, a Department of Human Services investigation is continuing.
