Going Once, Going Twice

We’ve heard of people trying to get donations to pay off school loans and credit card bills via some highly creative web sites, but this may be the first time anyone has tried to give their debt to the highest bidder.

A family is offering up their $ 103,245.11 in debt on eBay and has conveniently shared a list of where the money went (almost half is tied up in a home loan, of course.) So what do you get for your bid? The house and the car are up for grabs along with their burden.

How does it come to this, we wonder? Is sharing your debt online and then asking other people to take it irresponsible? [Babble.com]
