Apparent someone did exactly that in ebay. Not only that, but 38 other people bid on that address.

Some enterprising individual registered an email with Yahoo for [email protected] and is now trying to sell the address on eBay.

Ad John Chow writes in his blog

First of all, I’m sure the selling of Yahoo email addresses goes against the Yahoo TOS. Once Yahoo finds out about the auction, Yahoo will most likely delete the account and the person who paid $355.00 for it will get nothing. However, if Yahoo deletes the account, someone else can register it and put it up for sale again.

Secondly, I have to ask who would pay $355 for an email address? Maybe the bidder was just stupid and thought he/she was bidding on an iPhone and not an email address. While the text of the ad clearly states the auction is for the [email protected] email address, the big photo of the iPhone may lead some misguided eBayers into thinking they’re bidding on an Apple iPhone.

Now that the email address is exposed to the world, the owner better be ready for the incoming torrential spam. Poor guy.

The bidding has now ended. But you can still find similar items from other eBay sellers selling email addresses related to iphone:

[email protected] IPHONE EMAIL ADDRESS GBP 0.50

[email protected] Email Address AU $1.00

[email protected] Email Address AU $1.00
