If a salesperson sells you an imitation set as a gold jewelry set, this is what you can call cheating. But if a person starts selling every pixel on a website for a dollar and people are willing to buy it to write their name or brand name on the bought pixel area on the website, you call that complete garbage. It is amazing to find that there are no dearth of persons willing to buy complete garbage with million bucks as if it is the last thing they will ever buy. Here are some of the example how some people managed to sell the most insignificant things at prices you cannot even imagine in your wild dreams.
