Man Sells NES For $50,000 to Pay Bills

Making money to pay off debt is apparently as easy as listing your favorite videogame system on eBay for way more than it's worth and asking nicely.

Do you have a lot of unpaid bills? Are financial problems getting you down? Simply find an old gaming system and overprice it by a factor of 100 like ronald3868, who was supposedly down on his luck and looked to the world of internet auctions to annihilate his woes by listing a Nintendo Entertainment System on eBay for $35,000.

He writes in the auction:

I am down on my luck need to pay bills living pay check to pay check. this is my price possession the only thing I can say I own 100%. to some a nes system could mean nothing but to me its priceless. I hate to part with it but i need the money. You might say what a ridiculous price but thats how hard it is for me to part with it. I have 100% feedback. whoever buys it can verify that I really need the money. I can show you my bills and credit report to verify it and I will give proof that the bills got paid. I would like to personally hand over the nes bundle system over to the winner and personally thank him/her if possible. God bless.

Ronald3868's NES also comes with 42 games, a Game Genie, a light gun, four controllers, and a neat little carrying case I would probably spend $10-$20 dollars on. This bundle pack seems to have sold for not $35,000, not $40,000, and not $45,000, but $50,000. Who knew it was that easy to sell your old videogame stuff for absurd amounts of money? If Ronald actually gets $50,000, which I sincerely doubt he will, someone out there really needs a punch in the mouth.

Hm. Hi everyone. I'm a down-on-my-luck videogame writer. I have bills that need paying. My prize possession is not a regular old Nintendo, but a Super Nintendo with about 30 games. Does anybody want to buy the whole set for $75,000? That's a sweet deal, and I really need the money, I promise.

[UPDATE]Surprise, the seller didn't get his money. However, he did relist the NES for $35,000. Good luck.
