    This is absolutely hilarious!

    I'm quite puzzled as to the seller's motives behind this listing, though.

    My best guess would be that it's just a prank (and a good one!), but then again why would the seller go through all that trouble of setting up the listing, paying Flippa's fees, getting the shill bid for $27m in etc. just to make a few people laugh?

    Any intelligent guesses anyone?

    Could be a publicity stunt, why else would someone waste $50 to list that?

    .. or as someone else pointed out outside this forum, his agenda could be wanting to have someone else believe that they're getting a bargain at a few thousand after the deal "falls through". $27m is still overdoing it bigtime though, lol.

    I guess this is the first time there's multiple threads about the same topic. Good thing we have the thread police to come in and remind us.
    Your post would be helpful if this was an informative thread, or someone requesting information. Unfortunately it is nothing more than a poor attempt at increasing your post count.

    Throwaway flippa account...nobody is getting fees from him.

    Created a major buzz. Doubtless this is getting talked about on hundreds of forums.

    Seller is operating in the German language(his account shows he just logged in from Poland) maybe he is thinking non English speakers wont be able to decipher what has actually gone on but he will be able to use the "seller of $27,000,0000 website" hype in his sales pitches.

    German version of a WSO incoming or "Krieger Sonderangebot" as Google translate tells me !

    The German he uses is not gramatically wrong, but the style of writing he uses makes me think that he is probably a ten year old.

    Edit: I found his Facebook account, he is not a ten year old ;)
