Share This Article:
A woman from Australia has come under fire for advertising her children for sale on ebay. The Herald Sun reports she posted photos of the two children; both under ten years of age in the listing which inluded a "lengthy sales pitch". The pitch began with; "Kid for sale, an adorable child for sale, can clean and hold a decent conversation. Very lovable, but I just grew out of her." The advert appeared on Wednesday and remained listed until Thursday morning, when a member of the public noticed users bidding on the two children. The Sexual Offences and Child Abuse unit were notified who then contacted ebay to disable the page and obtain the mothers details. The woman claimed the auction was a practical joke. The police are carrying out investigations into the genuine bidders. The say they "discourage this type of behaviour."
