An antique mirror managed to scare up $155 U.S. in a recent eBay auction despite — or perhaps because of — claims that it might be haunted.
The two sellers — Joseph Birch, 20, and Sotiris Charalambous, 43 — claim they acquired the allegedly haunted mirror when their landlord put it in a dumpster outside their London home about five months ago. Since then, the duo claim they’ve suffered a streak of bad luck, including financial problems and illness according to the Daily Mail.
The duo claim that since they took possession of the mirror, they’ve woken up“screaming in pain,” felt “a sense of impending doom,” and spotted “flickering shadows” reflected in it, MSNnow.com reported, adding that the final straw was when one of the owners woke up “covered in deep red scratches.”
The two recently decided to get rid of the bad luck mirror by auctioning it off on eBay,but making sure to fully disclose its paranormal properties. It’s a good thing there was no profit motive reflected in the eBay posting, but there was only one bid for the item and it was for the original price posted by the two men.
The buyer’s name has not been released.
