Hmmmmm........

Well at least she also told everyone where to get them ( The Visitor Center Gift Shop I think it was ) for $4.95 each. So if the price is a little too steep........... try the V. C.. Some people's kids.... LOL

And the bad thing is... eBay is going to want their cut of that auction!

Hopefully, the seller knows how to cancel bids...

Ostensibly she is donating all the proceeds to a charity. I hope so as its over $10 million as we speak. Is this someone running the bids up on purpose, or a legitimate person wanting to contribute to the fund? $10 mil I find a bit hard to believe.

I think logic dictates this bidding is a fraud. If you had $10 million to donate to charity, which would you do: (a) donate the money directly; or (b) bid on an eBay auction on the word of an unknown stranger that the money would be donated.

Millionaires do not need eBay to make donations.

This auction is a joke and should be closed by the seller.

This auction makes a mockery of ebay and what it sets out to achieve (safe trading conditions for buyer and seller). Look below the auction details for the list of bid retractions and incorrect amounts entered. It should be pulled. I thought bids were legally binding anyway.Doesn't e-bay monitor these kind of things? Shouldn't someone purporting to be raisng money on behalf of a worthy/charitable cause have to prove it before being able to advertise the fact?

Yes, and at the very least, eBay should close it. Lets face it, there is no way eBay could ever hope to charge the credit card of "collectiblesbychris" for the Final Auction Value Fee! That would max mine out plus a few more too.
