Empty items on ebay?

What the heck? Why are there so many empty containers (soda cans, snack bags, take out bags) all EMPTY being sold on ebay? I don't want to post the links in case it's a TOS violation here on Mylot, but just go to ebay and search for "empty fritos bag" and you'll see what i mean. The guy that is selling it states in the ad that anything received with the bag is a gift from me to you. I just don't get what could be so worth it? This particular empty food thing went for $560.00 Should I be selling my trash?! He wont give any clues as to what is in the bag-- but says that there are hints on his ebay page. I've looked, there is no obvious hints. Does anyone know?

Why not ? Empty cans is an item and people can use it for some commercial purpose. I wonder someone wanted to sell their 7 months old baby and now saying joke ! I more wonder some day people may try sell their girlfriend or wife or boyfriend or husband on ebay or other selling sites ..lol

I guess if it was ALOT of cans, then maybe it would be beneficial, because you can trade them in at the recycle center for money-- or possibly make stuff with the metal. But one can? LOL I don't know.... You are right about that baby, and the various girlfriend/boyfriend/husband/wife listings-- those are really strange!

I can tell you now, that a lot of people that buy off ebay seem to like junk or empty things. I have seen empty perfume bottles sell just because they are a certain make, I have seen people selling perfume bottles with maybe one squirt in it for almost as much as you would pay in the shops. I have seen carrier bags selling and just the most craziest things ever. When we first started selling on ebay, we sold a load of useless stuff and we made a killing on it, it was so funny that it was not funny if you know what I mean. When we ran out of things like that, I decided to try selling brand new stuff, and although it sold it went nothing like the other useless stuff I sold. It is mad.

It's ridiculous! I think it's crazy too. My curiousity is killing me though-- What could be possibly so important being sold as a gift an an empty food (trash) bag! I can't seem spending $560.00 (or more) on something I have no clue what is. Money is too valuable.
