An eBay seller made a huge mistake on the weekend, when she posted a picture of a dress she intended to sell on the website, but failed to notice her nude reflection in the mirror too.
Aimi Jones soon noticed the error and then removed it from auction, but the gaffe had been noticed by several people and it had already been posted on Twitter and Facebook. The 21-year-old stated about the incident, “It’s so embarrassing. It is such a dizzy, stupid thing to do and now the whole world’s seen me in the nude.”
“I put it on eBay last Saturday morning and realised straight away so ended the sale,” added Jones. “But what I didn’t realise was that people could still see it on the site. I reported it to eBay and they took it down, but by then it had gone viral. I’ve had messages from Australia and the US saying nice things but there are some nutters.”
Aimi, who hails from Oxford, England, reposted the advertisement for the size 10 dress on eBay again on Monday, but the image this time featured a picture of her fully clothed. She also added the caption, “As seen by thousands. Never worn naked.”
However several hoax bids have since been placed on the item, which was originally just priced at £15.99, with one user even looking to buy the dress for £153,000. Aimi still saw the funny side, with the beauty therapist adding, “My boyfriend Andy thinks the whole thing is hilarious.”
