There is no shortage of bad parents in the world. This time the unfit parents come from Germany where they posted their 7 month year old boy on eBay for 1 Euro or about $1.60. Thankfully, authorities have taken custody away from the child. This is not the first time that babies have been for sale on eBay.
Authorities in southern Germany have taken custody of a 7-month-old boy after his parents posted an ad on eBay offering to sell him for one euro, or about $1.60.
Police spokesman Peter Hieber says the baby was placed in the care of youth services in the southwestern Allgaeu region.
Hieber said on Saturday that the mother told police the Internet ad was only a joke. Authorities have begun an investigation into possible child trafficking against the parents.
No offers were made for the child in the two hours and 30 minutes the ad was posted. The Internet auction site deleted the posting later.
