eBay Bans Schoolgirl From Selling Her Grandmother

Posted By Ben Goulding, 30 September, 2009 | permalink


Internet auction site eBay has banned a 10-year-old girl from selling her grandmother, claiming it breeched regulations on human trafficking.

Zoe Pemberton, from England, advertised her grandmother, 61, as ”annoying” but ”cuddly” in her joke listing, but it was removed by eBay.

”Obviously we have rules about the selling of people,” said an eBay spokeswoman.

”We had to take it down but it was quite amusing and there were a number of offers.

”The little girl had described her grandmother as ‘annoying’ but had gone on to say she liked crosswords and was ‘cuddly’ and there were quite a few offers.”

The spokeswoman added: ”The advert was obviously light-hearted and had been done with the full knowledge of grandma – we do get these kind of things from time to time.”
