Some weasel attempted to sell the “true identity of Banksy” on eBay. He was going to “tell you his name” for a minimum bid of $3,000 with a $25,000 Buy It Now option (and free shipping!). The posting is gone now, but for a second there, eBay went from selling hunks of Banksy walls to hunks of Banksy bullshit. UPDATE: It’s up again.
If you win this auction I will reveal to you the true identity of ‘Banksy.’
I have uncovered his identity by matching up the prices of his sold pieces to corresponding tax records. I will reveal no more details.
The winner of this auction is the only person that I will ever share this information with. I will simply tell you his name. I cannot offer anything more.
I give you 100% assurance that it is most certainly the full name of the street artist known as ‘Banksy’.
