Coming on the heels of reports of FEMA disaster card being used to purchase $800.00 handbags now MRE's that were / are supposed to have been used to feed people have now ended up on eBay :shk: Now it not likely that idividuals are selling thioer rations, but rather the middle men stealing cases of the stuff. No matter how tragic the disaster, we always seem to have these paracites ready to leach whatever they can.



WASHINGTON - Uncle Sam has tried to feed millions of hurricane victims this year with Meals-Ready-to-Eat, or MREs, only to fear that some of them have become Meals-Ready-for-eBay.

The government is looking into whether eBay sellers in Gulf Coast states are trying to profit from military foodstuffs handed out for free following hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma.

Representatives for eBay, the online auctioneer company, say it is impossible to prove that any of the meals were meant for hurricane victims. They note that MREs can be bought in camping stores and Army-Navy surplus outlets.

As I said in the other thread related to this, who would want to buy an MRE for such a high price? And why?
