I need eBayer's Anonymous

I think I'm getting addicted to eBay...

Last week, I bought some accessories for my current cellphone. 2 days later, I turn around and buy a totally different cellphone, rendering the newly-purchased accessories useless.

Tonight, I decided to check out some of the "Mystery Auctions" that are now starting to be all over eBay. I found one that said "Bonus Bonus Jackpot." It looked intriguing, and it was only at $3. I bid $3.25.

The immediate response from eBay was "You have been outbid by another user." I figured this, and upped my bid to $5.

"You have been outbid by another user."

I have never done one of these, so I decided $10 for an envelope (mind you, eBay does not allow you to sell these items as a raffle, bingo, lottery, etc... you can only sell them as the actual item, which was an envelope) was pretty steep, but what the heck - it said it had "currency" in it. So I put my max bid at $10 and confirmed it. I was now the high bidder.

As the auction closed, I watched it go up ever so slightly. It finished at $7.01, and I was happy. But now I have to pay for it, and I have no idea of how I'm going to do that. I have to pay for my other auctions I won too, and my Taco Bell check coming on Monday is spent already. I have no other $$ until Friday.

I really hate not having money. It really slows things down. Let's hope the "currency" in this mystery envelope is actual spendable cash, and a lot of it at that.

your comment, you really hate not having money. Seems you have money and work hard at Taco Bell to earn it. You want money so bad you might end up being taken advantage of (Ebay scam) Buying a few lottery tickets is fine. An for the cell phone thing, sounds like you made hasty decision. Stop and think before you move ahead. Having money is not the answer. Be happy with what you have. As long as you have food, clothes and a place to live that's all you need. Good Luck.
