eBay gold mine listing is worth a read

The stories of the Wild West are often focused on rustlers, gunfights, claim-jumpers and fabulous gold strikes. If you want to read flamboyant story-telling reminiscent of the old days, take a gander at the description of a supposedly fabulous gold mine for sale on eBay.

The seller of the Yellow Jacket [right] and Phoenix mines warns that, "I will say that anyone that is a scammer, crook, charleton, hood, thief, Felon, Corporate Raider, Con Man, or anything of the like will not get anywhere with us."

So, even if you don't have $20 million burning a hole in your pocket, you'll find the listing pretty entertaining.

  1. I've always been curious about this: if the mine is a "gold mine" of an opportunity, why are they always so anxious to sell it?
