New five pound notes with an AK47 serial number are selling for loads of cash online, because that's what people do now. They pay hundreds of pounds for something that is literally only worth £5.
One lad who thought he was in the money after attracting a bid of £80,000 for his note has been left sadly disappointed after it turned out the top bid was a fake. Well, of course it was, mate. I know people are a bit stupid over these new fivers, but that's 16,000 times its value.
Gareth Wright took to eBay to attempt to flog his new fiver and, after attracting loads of attention on social media, the bids flew in to the sound of a 'kerching'.
Naturally, Gareth was made up with the bid and contacted the 'buyer' to arrange payment only to be told that the funds wouldn't be forthcoming because he was 'waiting for a shipment of cocaine to come in'. Brilliant. This is brilliant.
According to the Mirror, Gareth is less than impressed. He finds the whole thing 'very childish'.
He might have the last laugh, however, because eBay has said that all bids are binding contracts. Let's hope that shipment comes in soon.
