Police Are Hunting People Who Put Their Month Old Baby On eBay

Police Are Hunting People Who Put Their Month Old Baby On eBay

Now and again, things will get financially tight. This usually means selling a few possessions from around the house to bring in a bit of extra cash.

The normal items are DVDs and CDs lying around that are no longer used. It could maybe be a stereo, the car if things get too bad, and... of course... your child.

The illicit selling of humans is severely frowned upon by eBay, and weirdly lands you a rather serious criminal record.

However, this German family, from Duisburg, were blissfully unaware that actually trying to offload their 40-day-old baby on the selling site might land them in a spot of bother.

Poor Maria. I refuse to believe she was such a burden to her parents that basically trafficking her on the world's most popular selling site was the only option. She was listed at £4,500.

The listing, which has since been deleted, showed the toddler in various different sleepsuits with a description saying "Child, 40 days old named Maria... for sale."

Now, I'm sure we've all been in that state of drunkenness where surfing across the bay has thrown up some odd products. I once debated with myself whether or not paying £30 for a canoe would be a solid investment at 2am. But then I realised the closest water to me is a park's duck pond and that the cook book 'Coolio The Ghetto Gourmet: Cookin' With Coolio' was one click away. Sorry, canoe geezer, no deal. However, I reckon stumbling across a baby for sale would take the biscuit.

"We received a lot of complaints from users and we immediately pursued the matter," eBay spokesman Pierre Du Bois said after the company removed the listing. "In such a case, we provide the authorities with all available information."

Police are now reportedly on a mission to find whoever tried to wheel and deal their daughter, but there is a big possibility the whole thing was a farce.
