The next best thing is an iPhone 5 shaped piece of cardboard...

Current bidding is around £200,000.

A steal, in my opinion.

I was worried for the highest bidder in the case that they won and would actually have to pay... but it looks like the seller is making the accounts himself judging from the names

offer.ebay.co.uk...

can you say money laundering.

because that's the only plausible explanation for paying 200,000 pounds for a piece of cardboard you can cut yourself at home.

The money still has to come from somewhere electronically. Not sure how that would work, but interesting angle none-the-less.

It's atrocious the working conditions the workers are suffering in those huge companies owned by the BoxConn company.. I hear they're lining up on the room and one after the other, jumping off, rather than face another day in the working conditions..


BoxConn, you evil fiends!!!

you're right, it could be a shipment of drugs or some other contraband that is really being paid for.

the money laundering is easy, you give someone say $220,000 pounds, they bid for your cardboard "iphone" and transfer the money cleanly into your account.

Some of them further below seem to be for charity.
This guy could be bandwagoning the idea to grab some free money?
