Doofus Of The Day #573

Today’s winner is from California.

James Labrecque sold an old safe on eBay for $122.93.

. . .

Labrecque, an eBay user for more than 15 years, said he did not have the combination to the safe and believed it to be just another item to turn around.

“I thought it was empty,” he said. “I shook it and I didn’t feel anything inside of it, so I figured, well, maybe it’s just a locked safe, you know. So I put it on eBay.”

Labrecque lives in California. The person who bought the safe lives in Bartlett [a city in Tennessee]. Upon receipt, the buyer brought the safe to a welder, who cut it open.

Inside the safe was $26,000 in cash.

The buyer gave Labrecque a positive review and shared the news.

Giving the seller a ‘positive review’ was a refined way of rubbing salt in the wound, wasn’t it? Nevertheless, Mr. Labrecque should look on the bright side. After this, he’ll be able to sell any number of locked containers, of any and every description – and find eager buyers for them all!
