How high will you bid?
With the ever-growing popularity and media notoriety of mystery auctions, it was only a matter of time before another unusual mystery opportunity is offered on the auction block.
This could however be the biggest one yet.
A brand new house; a mystery vehicle; a turn-key business; a mystery vault; the key to a mystery safety deposit box; a mystery heirloom, and a rare mystery collection. These are just some of the items included in the first ever "Mystery Inheritance" being auctioned on eBay.
Valued at over $1.3 million, the "Mystery Inheritance" is the first of its kind ever auctioned on the site.
Ms. Dore Palais, a self-proclaimed rich girl asked her parents to give her an early inheritance which she plans to immediately liquidate by selling the contents in this unusually no-reserve auction.
Dore's reasoning behind the highly controversial, never before done eBay listing?
"I have no interest in real estate, property, vehicles, jewelry, or material things no matter how high their value may be. I was raised around the finest things in life and know first-hand that they alone cannot make you happy. Instead, I long to travel and see the world, help those who may not be as fortunate, possibly adopt a needy child. The only way I can fund these ventures is if I were to liquidate my entire inheritance while I am young so I can live to see these plans fulfilled," she says.
Bidding for the mystery inheritance starts at a mere $15,000, less than 2% of its $1.3 million-dollar value. There is no reserve, so the high bidder walks away with (as the seller puts it) "an instant great life."
The unusual 7-day auction is scheduled to begin at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Wednesday, July 20th. It ends the same time on Wednesday, July 27th.
The eBay item number for the "Mystery Inheritance" is #5599463479.
(Please take note that the auction will not be available until 4:01 p.m. Eastern Standard time on Wednesday, July 20th).
