Seller not prepared to touch item. Pick up from central London, address will be supplied on completion of sale. Buyer must arrange own transport,'' said a report in Mirror UKOuch!

While the listing has been deleted from ebay, it raked in about 153 bids and the highest price offering stood at £65,900.

The ebay user, 'blackteabowl' had also said that proceeds will go towards "Mr Ethical’s campaign to expose a massive HSBC fraud and Cameron’s cover-up," reported Russia Today The Russia Today report further states that this Mr. Ethical, aka 'blackteabowl' aka Nicholas Wilson, is a anti-fraud and corruption campaigner and a whistleblower and wasn't just trying to make a silly joke with the auction.
