    I've always thought eBay was to sell your items - not your life story.
    I wish them luck though.......:)

    umm...don't know what to say. Starting bid of 300.00, for stuff that, MISB would barely be that. I feel bad for people, but unfortunately Ebay is not a charity, and I doubt they will be successful.

    I agree, it's a sad story and I wish them the best but ebay isn't for charity. If the family needs the money that badly they should find a government program or church that can help them. Auctioning off new toys that anyone can get isn't going to cut the deal. Best of luck to them.

    yea, they should look to the government for help. i know they don't pay for everything but it would help.

    it is a very sad story and hopefully he can get the money he needs to get back on his feet. atleast he is currently working at the moment. i just hate reading that type of stuff

    I call shenanigans.

    You guys are assuming that this persons story is real. Their feedback consists of a dozen penny auctions and other transactions under $1.

    This person made up some story and is simply trying to catch someone who believes it and cares.

    Super Sad Story!! I feel bad for them. I had some of same problems and had to sell alot of my toy collection on ebay to get past the really hard times. But I was able to bounce back and get most of it back. The one thing I didnt do is ask for money or keep buying toys when I needed the money for other things. I wish them luck.

    Seriously though, from the stuff they have up there, it looks like she just went to Toys R Us and bought a bunch of shit on the shelves, and brought it home and wanted everyone to believe its all rare. I mean, its all like, withing the last month brand new stuff. How can that auction reach 5000.00?

    looked again-i notice the person asks more than once not to get detracting mail/comments.
    that alone seems really suspicious...

    ...............okay looooooooooong story about their financial issues, but they really feel the best way to come out on top is to buy out a tf display at a toysrus and hope a "rich" fan who has a heart of gold will pay 12x what they are worth.

    sad story or not , this person is ignorant

    Plus the sister had enough money to buy a brand new Wii...

    Sounds like an ex-friend of mine who used to complain about only being able to buy her teenager $9 clothes once a year, but she had enough money to be part of several online games, plus buy upgrades, etc.

    She didn't get any sympathy from me, either.
