Le Grand Jardin. For only $65m dollars you can own a thousand year old villa along with the bastille that housed The Man in the Iron Mask.

Huh? I don't get it. Is it a scam? Surely if you had such a property, you'd list it in Architectural Digest like every other person with a high-dollar property. Those photos look like they were poorly scanned from a text book or magazine...

I suppose it's typical for someone to go from selling gaming cards to selling multi-million dollar properties if a few auctions.

I was skeptical, too. But apparently Hugh Grant is already interested.

I smell scam, bigtime. I'd be willing to overlook the multiple spelling errors and so forth; they're French. But if you're selling a property of that size and historical value, you don't put off the kind of people who can afford to spend that kind of money, I'd imagine.

And you don't fucking use eBay.

Poor scanning would be several steps up from taking 30 seconds to photograph a few pages from a guidebook set on your couch.

One would have to be seriously high to bid on this.

Shipping: Pickup only

Damn.

Maybe this is like those ebay scams where you think you are bidding on a plasma TV, but its realy just a picture of a plasma TV.

I'm confused by the page title. Is Hurley buying the place?

Perhaps Billy Bragg would be interested.
