A Wall Street lawyer gave new meaning to the term
"futures market" when he tried to auction his future Social Security
checks – money did doesn’t now have – on eBay for $200,000 so he could
use the cash for a down payment on a Manhattan apartment.
"I’ve put a lot of money into the Social Security system, so why can’t I sell it to someone else?" mused Thaddeus Wojcik.
File that under "Department of HA!." Ebay yanked the auction. Here is the full story, and thanks to Chris D. for the pointer.
