Found this story on a house selling for peanuts on Ebay. Pretty funny. It seems all the buyer had to do was pay her paltry winning bid, $850 in back taxes, and I am sure a few other administrative and filing charges.

Pretty sad: the land alone should be worth at least $5K dollars--------even in a severely depressed market.
