The bidding closed on October 14 at USD 16,400 for Jared Dines’ 18-string guitar eBay charity auction, an auction that was held to raise money to provide guitars to children. Then Jared received this message: “Don’t drink and bid on eBay. Sorry”.
Jared Dines’ 18-string guitar eBay charity fail
It would appear that poor old Jared has been done over by an over exuberant eBay bidder who had a few two many brews whilst online. We’ve all done it, but this has left poor Mr Dines with a big hole to fill, as he was going to donate every penny to help raise money for kids.
Then things got even worse. The next bidder in line also bailed on their bid. Dines explains: “The person behind him also messaged me and said, ‘I got drunk and bid on eBay.’ ”
Sounds like the whole thing was a failure. Now Dines says that he is hesitant to re-list the Ormsby out of concern he’ll just get “trolled” again. But he goes on to say he’s “still gonna make it happen regardless … I’m still gonna get kids instruments. If I have to pull out of my goddamn pocket, I will.”
