One cannot help but wonder how a rug store assistant can afford a $420k house.

I call PR stunt.

Well after reading how well the advertisement was done, i was suspecting he, was more of a creative advertiser :lol: but joking aside, it does look a little like you say! The advert is quite well planned out, and a little more well informed, than the layman. I read it on the BBC website, there was 52 bidders at the start, now its over 100!

That's why I cannot help but wonder!

Then again on reading the auction proper, it turns out he worked in the mines for a bit and apparently they pay very very well. Hmm....

It's at 2.2mill and climbing. That's some serious dough being exchanged for not very much...

He didn't get what he expected in the end, because of fake bidding.
