XBox Signed By Sarah Palin Receives Bid Of $1.1 Million On eBay, Presumably Fake Bid

Apparently the guy in the above picture had his XBox signed by former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and now he wants to unload it on eBay.  The guy had the XBox signed at the a picnic hosted by Palin in Wasilla, Alaska on July 24, 2009.  This event took place two days before she resigned as the governor of Alaska.  The XBox has a 60GB hard drive and is in perfect condition.  Palin is expected to run for President in 2012.

Here’s the catch.  An early anonymous made a bid $1.1 million.  The user name of the eBay user is confidential and they have made only one other transaction on eBay which he or she received positive feedback for.  Considering that this bid was made so early and at such a high amount, I have reason to believe that it is a fake bid and is a scam.

Even a lunch with Warren Buffett that went for about $1.68 million is worth a lot more than an XBox that wasn’t even signed for the eBay buyer.  Shenanigans, I say!
